Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
It's been the structure of my life: you scheme and plan and try and fail and try again and accumulate and lose and win back, and then you tell.
I didn't have to win, and winning wasn't important to me. Being world champion wasn't important to me. What was important to me was entertaining the audience, and whether that meant winning, losing, singing, or whatever it was on the live show we were doing every week, which was awesome, I was game for it.
You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.
When you are fitted in a racing car and you race to win, second or third place is not enough.
Yesterday's home runs don't win today's games.
Always remember that others may hate you but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.
Richard M. Nixon
Tennis is mostly mental. Of course, you must have a lot of physical skill, but you can't play tennis well and not be a good thinker. You win or lose the match before you even go out there.
You win by working hard, making tough decisions and building coalitions.
I am constantly being asked about individuals. The only way to win is as a team. Football is not about one or two or three star players.
You win battles by knowing the enemy's timing, and using a timing which the enemy does not expect.
As a multisport athlete, I was always fascinated with competition and how to win. At HBS and later at the Harvard Department of Economics, I was drawn to the field of competition and strategy because it tackles perhaps the most basic question in both business management and industrial economics: What determines corporate performance?
How great are the dangers I face to win a good name in Athens.
Alexander the Great
I practice martial arts not to win over other people but to win over my own heart.
I focus on one thing and one thing only - that's trying to win as many championships as I can.
Real estate sales was perfect training for the experience to go into public life because you learn to accept rejection, learn to meet new people, learn to work with people and find common ground. That's the way you sell houses... that's also the way you win over constituency.
I want to be an NBA all-star and help my team win. That's what it's all about, is winning. I'm a competitor... People said a lot about me being selfish and stuff like that. Getting into the league, I can't wait to shut that down. I'm a guy who wants to play and to win and love my teammates.
Sometimes you have to accept you can't win all the time.
I think the players win the championship, and the organization has something to do with it, don't get me wrong. But don't try to put the organization above the players.
When it comes to brains, size matters. It's not all that matters, of course. Whales and dolphins have brains that are larger than humans', but few of the flippered and fluked set win tenure at Stanford. Our brains are the largest in proportion to body size, and they're also highly sophisticated.
Badminton will gain momentum in a big manner after my win in Olympics. More players will participate in the game now.
I race to win. If I am on the bike or in a car it will always be the same.
Looking back, yes, I made too many comebacks. But each comeback I was 100 percent sure that I would win. I never came back for the money, because I didn't need it. The adulation I was getting anyway in other spheres. But I'm a guy who likes to see how close he can get to the edge of the mountain - that's what makes me tick.
Sugar Ray Leonard
Win or lose today I am proud of the way my boys have played in the tournament.
Environmentalists should like fracking for its relative cleanliness. But they don't. They have made a bugaboo out of the chemicals in fracking fluids, which supposedly can leach into groundwater sources. I'm convinced they're dead wrong. Ultimately, good technology with a cost advantage will win out over paranoia.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
