Best Quotes about Competition

Lopez, Nancy

2.
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

3.
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

4.
After the game the King and pawn go into the same box.
Proverb, Italian

5.
The general fact is that the most effective way of utilizing human energy is through an organized rivalry, which by specialization and social control is, at the same time, organized co-operation.
Cooley, Charles Horton

6.
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

7.
Most games are lost, not won.
Stengel, Casey

8.
Focus on competition has always been a formula for mediocrity.

Goldsmith, Oliver

11.
Somebody will always break your records. It is how you live that counts.
Campbell, Earl

12.
Competition is a process or variety of habitual behavior that grows out of a habit of mind.
Beecher, Willard

13.
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

14.
I don't compete with other discus throwers. I compete with my own history.
Oerter, Al

15.
We want to be first; not first if, not first but; but first!
Kennedy, John F.

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

17.
Show me a guy who is afraid to look bad, and I'll show you a guy you can beat every time.
Brock, Lou

18.
Competitions are for horse, not artist.
Bartok, Bela

19.
Competition is the spice of sports; but if you make spice the whole meal you'll be sick.
Leonard, George

20.
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

21.
You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your tricks of war.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

22.
To free the mind from the habit of competition, we must see in detail the process by which the mind is ensnared by competition.
Beecher, Marguerite

23.
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

24.
You must play boldly to win.
Palmer, Arnold

25.
Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed -- there's so little competition.
Hubbard, Elbert

26.
The time your game is most vulnerable is when you're ahead, never let up.
Laver, Rod

27.
Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.
Knight, Bobby

28.
Every man in the world is better than someone else and not as good someone else.
Saroyan, William

29.
When you have them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.
Martin, Jerry

30.
The biggest things are often the easiest to do because there is so little competition.
Horne, William Van

31.
When you fear a foe, fear crushes your strength; and this weakness gives strength to your opponents.
Shakespeare, William

32.
You get out in front -- you stay out in front.
Foyt, A. J.

33.
You must sacrifice, train, do everything possible to put yourself in a position to win. But if you consider second or third a failure, I feel sorry for you.
Falcon, Joe

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

37.
Men often compete with one another until the day they die; comradeship consists of rubbing shoulders jocularly with a competitor.
Hoagland, Edward

38.
I play [golf] with friends sometimes, but there are never friendly games.
Hogan, Ben

39.
What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.

40.
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.
