Competition Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Competition

1.
Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.
Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''

2.
A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up. It's all a matter of pride.
Lopez, Nancy

3.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
Kramer, Jerry

4.
Focus on competition has always been a formula for mediocrity.
Burrus, Daniel

5.
Win or lose, do it fairly.
Rockne, Knute

6.
Men often compete with one another until the day they die; comradeship consists of rubbing shoulders jocularly with a competitor.
Hoagland, Edward

7.
Hail Caesar, those who are about to die salute you.
Gladiator's Salute

8.
When you're riding, only the race in which you're riding is important.
Shoemaker, Willie

9.
You find that you have peace of mind and can enjoy yourself, get more sleep, and rest when you know that it was a one hundred percent effort that you gave -- win or lose.
Howe, Gordie

10.
It's amazing how much of this is mental. Everybody's in good shape. Everybody knows how to ski. Everybody has good equipment. When it really boils down to it, it's who wants it the most, and who's the most confident on his skis.
Crist, Reggie

11.
We want to be first; not first if, not first but; but first!
Kennedy, John F.

12.
You get out in front -- you stay out in front.
Foyt, A. J.

13.
A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.
Ovid

14.
The price which society pays for the law of competition, like the price it pays for cheap comforts and luxuries, is great; but the advantages of this law are also greater still than its cost -- for it is to this law that we owe our wonderful material development, which brings improved conditions in its train. But, whether the law be benign or not, we must say of it: It is here; we cannot evade it; no substitutes for it have been found; and while the law may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.
Carnegie, Andrew

15.
For when the One Great Scorer comes to mark against your name, He writes -- not that you won or lost -- but how you played the Game.
Rice, Grantland

16.
I watch a man shoot pool for an hour. If he misses more than one shot I know I can beat him.
Lassiter, Luther

17.
The difference of great players is at a certain point in a match they raise their level of play and maintain it. Lesser players play great for a set, but then less.
Sampras, Pete

18.
The person who figures out how to harness the collective genius of his or her organization is going to blow the competition away.
Wriston, Walter

19.
There is nothing noble in being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
Proverb, Indian

20.
You have to defeat a great players aura more than his game.
Riley, Pat

21.
The medals don't mean anything and the glory doesn't last. It's all about your happiness. The rewards are going to come, but my happiness is just loving the sport and having fun performing.
Kersee, Jackie Joyner

22.
I don't care how good you play, you can find somebody who can beat you, and I don't care how bad you play, you can find somebody you can beat.
Penick, Harvey

23.
The biggest things are often the easiest to do because there is so little competition.
Horne, William Van

24.
Surely the best way to meet the enemy is head on in the field and not wait till they plunder our very homes.
Goldsmith, Oliver

25.
After the game the King and pawn go into the same box.
Proverb, Italian

26.
No wise combatant underestimates their antagonist.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

27.
I consider myself one of a very small handful of drivers in the world that are top drivers. The best one? I don't think anybody can say they're the best one because, from one week to the next, you can be on form or off form a little bit.
Mansell, Nigel

28.
How can they beat me? I've been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
Trevino, Lee

29.
When I go our on the ice, I just think about my skating. I forget it is a competition.
Witt, Katarina

30.
I won it, at least five million times. Men who were stronger, bigger and faster than I was could have done it, but they never picked up a pole, and never made the feeble effort to pick their legs off the ground and get over the bar.
Richards, Bob

31.
Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.
Shakespeare, William

32.
Becoming number one is easier than remaining number one.
Bradley, Bill

33.
I don't compete with other discus throwers. I compete with my own history.
Oerter, Al

34.
When you want to win a game, you have to teach. When you lose a game, you have to learn.
Landry, Tom

35.
Our life is not really a mutual helpfulness; but rather, it's fair competition cloaked under due laws of war; it's a mutual hostility.
Carlyle, Thomas

36.
The Law of Win Win says, Let's not do it your way or my way; let's do it the best way.
Anderson, Greg

37.
There are two kinds of people: Those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group because there is less competition there.
Gandhi, Indira

38.
Every man in the world is better than someone else and not as good someone else.
Saroyan, William

39.
Show me a guy who is afraid to look bad, and I'll show you a guy you can beat every time.
Brock, Lou

40.
This is a tough game. There are times when you've got to play hurt, when you've got to block out the pain.
O'Neal, Shaquille

41.
Once you're physically capable of winning a gold medal, the rest is ninety percent mental.
Johnson, Patti

42.

Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath.
Chamberlain, Wilt

45.
I love the winning, I can take the losing, but most of all I Love to play.
Becker, Boris

46.
Every time you go out on the ice, there are slight flaws. You can always think of something you should have done better. These are the things you must work on.
Hamill, Dorothy

47.
The game isn't over until it's over.
Berra, Yogi

48.
When you have them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.

Alexander, Barbara J.

50.
It has meant a lot to me to challenge the best players in the world and to beat them. And it means a lot to me to be out here and fighting for the title and, you know, it hurts not to win it.
Agassi, Andre
