Mian Muhammad Mansha
The great champions were always vicious competitors. You never lose respect for a man who is a vicious competitor, and you never hate a man you respect. I don't like Rod Laver because he's such a vicious competitor, but I don't dislike him.

No matter how senior you get in an organization, no matter how well you're perceived to be doing, your job is never done.
