Oerter, Al

19.
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

20.
Thank God for competition.When our competitors upset our plans or outdo our designs, they open infinite possibilities of our own work to us.
Atkinson, Gil

Louis, Joe

24.
Playing safe is only playing.
Olson, Chuck

25.
Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.
Knight, Bobby

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Thou shalt not covet; but tradition approves all forms of competition.
Clough, Arthur Hugh

29.
When you're riding, only the race in which you're riding is important.
Shoemaker, Willie

30.
When you have them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.
Martin, Jerry

31.
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

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
