Best Quotes about Competition

1.
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.

2.
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

3.

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

8.
I love the winning, I can take the losing, but most of all I Love to play.
Becker, Boris

9.
Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed -- there's so little competition.
Hubbard, Elbert

10.
When I go our on the ice, I just think about my skating. I forget it is a competition.
Witt, Katarina

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Running for money doesn't make you run fast. It makes you run first.
Jipcho, Ben

14.
Focus on competition has always been a formula for mediocrity.
Burrus, Daniel

Gandhi, Indira

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

19.
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

20.
Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.
Knight, Bobby

21.
I watch a man shoot pool for an hour. If he misses more than one shot I know I can beat him.
Lassiter, Luther

Foyt, A. J.

23.
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

24.
Thou shalt not covet; but tradition approves all forms of competition.
Clough, Arthur Hugh

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

26.
Surely the best way to meet the enemy is head on in the field and not wait till they plunder our very homes.
Goldsmith, Oliver

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

28.
When the game is over it is really just beginning.
