Bartok, Bela

Richards, Bob

14.
Competition is a process or variety of habitual behavior that grows out of a habit of mind.
Beecher, Willard

15.
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

16.
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

17.

Penick, Harvey

20.
How can they beat me? I've been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
Trevino, Lee

21.

Smith, Dean

23.
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.
