Grandma cheated whenever she could. She cheated because it was a much more scientific and surer way of winning than trusting to luck.
It seemed romantic but also tragic - people would be winning but then lose it all, or crash but fight on, break bones but get back on their bikes and try to finish. Just getting to the end was seen as an achievement in itself.
I think when you're winning, your uniforms are cool.
I like winning. There's also a certain joy in it. I feel fulfilled by it.
Nothing improves your confidence and brings a team together more than winning a cup.
I am only about winning and getting better.
Making the best-seller list is a big deal; it's like being nominated for an Oscar. Hitting No. 1 is like actually winning the award. It's very gratifying.
But when someone is on a winning horse, and everything looks wonderful, it's very hard as an outsider to persuade them something is wrong.
Not winning a title gives fuel to sportswriters and talking heads who question an athlete's true value.
I suppose I'm happy when I know I've given a horse a good ride, no matter where it is. I like playing golf in the summer; I'm happy when I hit a good shot, and I enjoy watching Arsenal playing beautiful football, but overall I can't believe you can be happy when you're not winning. I honestly can't accept that.
There's a sense of aliveness that comes from connection, shared experience. And you see it in every place.

I loved going to the Knicks because we won the Atlantic Division championship. We went from winning 21 games or 19 games to winning 52 games in a short period of time. I loved coaching Patrick Ewing and Charles Oakley and all those guys.
I didn't want to settle or become complacent after winning a major, I wanted to stay hungry. It's easy to do. It's easy to win a big tournament and kind of get a little lazy, so it's been a good motivator for me to work a little harder.
Getting the nomination is like gravy. Winning would be like whatever is better than gravy.
Billy Bob Thornton

Any form of a winning record in the conference is an accomplishment.
If I am 100% prepared for the fight, my opponent has no chance to win the fight. I am saying what I mean: He has a 0% chance to win the fight. There is going to be no luck involved; there is going to be nothing else to stop me from winning the fight.
I think I'm happier, not just because of winning Grammys and selling records, but because it's really fulfilling to have all these things happen with something you love to do.
I never was brought into the league thinking as far as, you know, statistics, things like that. We were really brought into the league in a team concept. Everything was focused around winning.

Yes, I believe that the art of winning is through intimidation, and not necessarily do you have to speak about it.
Rankings are not so important. I am only focused on winning tournaments.
It's hard to be a celebrity nowadays. It's not about your track record anymore. If you have a great movie, you're good. If not, people are ready to write you off. I think the only ones who are really winning are people like Will Smith. People go, 'Oh, it's Will Smith. I've got to see him, whatever he's in.'
All my life, I've been winning, ok?
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
