Best Quotes about Competition

1.
Competition is a process or variety of habitual behavior that grows out of a habit of mind.
Beecher, Willard

2.
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.

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Most games are lost, not won.
Stengel, Casey

6.
Competition is the whetstone of talent.
Saying

7.
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

8.
Competitions are for horse, not artist.
Bartok, Bela

9.
In this game, by trying to win; you automatically lose.
Ross, Ruth

10.
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

11.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.
Lamb, Charles

12.
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

13.
Somebody will always break your records. It is how you live that counts.
Campbell, Earl

14.
Show me a guy who is afraid to look bad, and I'll show you a guy you can beat every time.
Brock, Lou

15.
The key to any game is to use your strengths and hide your weaknesses.
Westphal, Paul

16.
You have to defeat a great players aura more than his game.
Riley, Pat

17.
I don't compete with other discus throwers. I compete with my own history.
Oerter, Al

18.
We want to be first; not first if, not first but; but first!
Kennedy, John F.

19.
We have a lot of players in their first year. Some of them are also in their last year.
Walsh, Bill

20.
Men often compete with one another until the day they die; comradeship consists of rubbing shoulders jocularly with a competitor.
Hoagland, Edward

21.
I don't psyche myself up. I psyche myself down. I think clearer when I'm not psyched up.
Cauthen, Steve

22.
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

23.
When you step onto that field, you cannot concede a thing.
Sayers, Gayle

24.
Once you're physically capable of winning a gold medal, the rest is ninety percent mental.
Johnson, Patti

25.
How can they beat me? I've been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
Trevino, Lee

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

27.
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

28.
He can run but he can't hide.
Louis, Joe

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

30.
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

31.
Playing safe is only playing.
Olson, Chuck

32.
I watch a man shoot pool for an hour. If he misses more than one shot I know I can beat him.
Lassiter, Luther

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Win or lose, do it fairly.
Rockne, Knute

36.
I ski to win. When the day comes that I can't get myself into a fighting mood anymore, I won't be able to win and I'll stop racing.
Stenmark, Ingemar

37.
Competition is the spice of sports; but if you make spice the whole meal you'll be sick.
Leonard, George

38.

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

42.
Becoming number one is easier than remaining number one.
Bradley, Bill

43.
When you have them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.
Martin, Jerry

44.
Racing is a matter of spirit not strength.
Guthrie, Janet

45.
A horse never runs so fast as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.
Ovid

46.
I believe in rules. Sure I do. If there weren't any rules, how could you break them?
Durocher, Leo

47.
One cannot play chess if one becomes aware of the pieces as living souls and of the fact that the Whites and the Blacks have more in common with each other than with the players. Suddenly one loses all interest in who will be champion.
Rapoport, Anatol

48.
Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.
