It's not easy to teach a child how to win.
The first lesson is that you can't lose a war if you have command of the air, and you can't win a war if you haven't.
All the champions - you go and ask Mike Tyson or Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Lennox Lewis and myself included, and I'm sorry for putting myself in line with all the other great names - but the champion's attitude is it doesn't matter who is in front of me, I am going to conquer this person and win the fight and knock the person out.
Individual honors and scoring championships are great, but my No. 1 goal is to win the Stanley Cup.
Now, everybody always says there's no 'I' in team, but there is an 'I' in win, because the individuals make the team what it is, and how they think and what they do is important to the team. So when you act like the individual is not important, well, it is damn important who these people are and what they are.
There isn't a flaw in his golf or his makeup. He will win more majors than Arnold Palmer and me combined. Somebody is going to dust my records. It might as well be Tiger, because he's such a great kid.
We should tell our kids to just have fun, participate and not get bent on winning or losing. But every coach, when they say that, they say it tongue in cheek, 'Don't worry about winning': If you win I'll get you ice cream, but if you lose I'm going to pout in the car.
My trainer don't tell me nothing between rounds. I don't allow him to. I fight the fight. All I want to know is did I win the round. It's too late for advice.
The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.
There is no 'i' in team but there is in win.
Most people have the will to win, few have the will to prepare to win.
The key is not the will to win... everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important.
You have no choices about how you lose, but you do have a choice about how you come back and prepare to win again.
I say have the night and give people the awards, but why do people want to watch people win awards? What are they getting out of it? I don't quite get it. Because they have awards all the time; there's awards for butchers, the best meat served, but they don't televise it. I don't know why they do it for films or TV programs.
You have to persuade yourself that you absolutely don't care what happens. If you don't care, you've won. I absolutely promise you, in every serious negotiation, the man or woman who doesn't care is going to win.
In order to win you must be prepared to lose sometime. And leave one or two cards showing.
Nobody likes to hear it, because it's dull, but the reason you win or lose is darn near always the same - pitching.
Those who can win a war well can rarely make a good peace and those who could make a good peace would never have won the war.
Winning isn't everything, but the will to win is everything.
Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to cut all sources of retreat. Only by doing so can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a burning desire to win - essential to success.
The spirit is the true self. The spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
No one will ever win a 5,000-meter by running an easy two miles. Not against me.
Because people have no thoughts to deal in, they deal cards, and try and win one another's money. Idiots!
Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.
Coretta Scott King
When I first ran for Congress, I went to my daughter Alexandra, who was going to be a senior in high school, and said: 'I have a chance to run. I may not win, but I'd be gone three nights a week. So, if you want me to stay, I'll be happy to.' And do you know what she said to me? 'Mother, get a life!'
If you look at anyone who has achieved great success and wealth, people like Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, or Lance Armstrong, they have all focused intensely in order to win.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
