Alexander, Barbara J.

5.
Competition is a process or variety of habitual behavior that grows out of a habit of mind.
Beecher, Willard

Proverb, Indian

11.
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

Saying

Agassi, Andre

16.
The ability to learn faster than your competitors may be the only sustainable competitive advantage.
Geus, Arie de

17.
How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.
Holtz, Lou

18.
What it comes down to is that anybody can win with the best horse. What makes you good is if you can take the second or third-best horse and win.
Aragon, Vicky

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