The thing is this: You got to have fun while you're fightin' for freedom, 'cause you don't always win.
First of all, no candidate is going to win by catering to the alleged Occupy Wall Street vote.
Never mind what you've heard. Halle Berry was not the first black woman to win an Academy Award for Best Actress. She was actually the 74th white one. And never mind all this talk about America electing its first black President; Barack Obama is actually the 44th white man to hold the job.
You can't win the hearts and minds of the masses unless you inspire them - you must lift their spirits and enliven their hearts.
Whether you win a match or lose a match, in terms of your emotions, it's important to be pretty levelheaded.
When you win, sometimes it overshadows a poor performance.
We must win in Iraq. If we withdraw, there will be chaos; there will be genocide; and they will follow us home.
When you're facing an opponent over a broad front, you don't aim for the opponent's strong points, important though they may be. Pick a little outpost that you can capture and win. And then you find another place that you can capture and win it, and then you move slowly toward the big places.
I've never run into a guy who could win at the top level in anything today and didn't have the right attitude, didn't give it everything he had, at least while he was doing it; wasn't prepared and didn't have the whole program worked out.
With United, we'd all grown up together, we all wanted to win the biggest trophy in football. We did it togther.
I liked it because it was such a dangerous script and showed just what human beings are capable of. Here was a movie in which Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt, who always win in every movie they ever do, simply don't win. I felt that was outrageous for a commercial movie.
If you work hard in real life, people tend to get in your way - either from inertia or prejudice - and they stop you achieving things. It's the worst thing about real life compared with sports, where you generally get what you deserve: if you're the fastest guy, you win; there are no other games being played.
Godot is whatever it is in life that you are waiting for: 'I'm waiting to win the lottery. I'm waiting to fall in love'. For me, as a child, it was Christmas. At least that eventually came.

John Foster Dulles
I think that at the start of a game, you're always playing to win, and then maybe if you're ahead late in the game, you start playing not to lose. The true competitors, though, are the ones who always play to win.
Playing hard to get is not the way to win me over. I'm definitely more for the girl who can smile and laugh all the time and just have a good time!

To be great we need to win games we aren't supposed to win.
When you're young you believe it when people tell you how good you are. And that's the danger, you inhale. Everyone will tell you you're a genius, which you are not, and if you understand that, you win.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
