Best Quotes about Competition

1.
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

2.
The key to any game is to use your strengths and hide your weaknesses.
Westphal, Paul

Cauthen, Steve

7.
Thou shalt not covet; but tradition approves all forms of competition.
Clough, Arthur Hugh

8.
So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on; and if that system is to last for ever, then art is doomed, and will surely die; that is to say, civilization will die.
Morris, William

13.
The time your game is most vulnerable is when you're ahead, never let up.
Laver, Rod

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.

15.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.
Lamb, Charles

16.
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

17.
How can we hope to remain economically competitive in a world in which... 90% of Dutch high-school students take advanced math courses and 100% of teachers in Germany have double majors, while the best we can say about our pocket of excellence is that 75% of [American] students have learned to critique tactfully?
Alexander, Barbara J.

18.
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

19.
World trade means competition from anywhere; advancing technology encourages cross-industry competition.Consequently, strategic planning must consider who our future competitors will be, not only who is here today.

Abbott, Jim

21.
Everybody pulls for David, nobody roots for Goliath.
Chamberlain, Wilt

22.
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

23.
Playing safe is only playing.
Olson, Chuck
