Your competition is not other people but the time you kill, the ill will you create, the knowledge you neglect to learn, the connections you fail to build, the health you sacrifice along the path, your inability to generate ideas, the people around you who don't support and love your efforts, and whatever god you curse for your bad luck.
You don't learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.

In youth we learn; in age we understand.
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.
I think that one of the things that you do learn is that falling in love and being in love with someone is a rarity. That you don't fall in love as many times as you think you're going to. And then when you do, it's really special; it's really important.
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.

I wasn't a jock in school, and by the 10th grade, when I was in boarding school I was carrying water buckets for the girls' hockey team.

I was not an athlete past the age of 13 or 14 when they start throwing the ball really fast.
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.

Robert E. Lee
