I try to do the right thing at the right time. They may just be little things, but usually they make the difference between winning and losing.
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.
Nothing is black-and-white, except for winning and losing, and maybe that's why people gravitate to that so much.
Winning is the most important thing in my life, after breathing. Breathing first, winning next.
When you play in the Premier League, say you're playing against a lower-end team, they set up to defend all the time, they set up to block you off. But when you play in the Champions League, all the other teams are used to winning every week, so it's more of an open game, it's more attacking, end-to-end.
Let us not become so intense in our zeal to do good by winning arguments or by our pure intention in disputing doctrine that we go beyond good sense and manners, thereby promoting contention, or say and do imprudent things, invoke cynicism, or ridicule with flippancy.
James E. Faust
People just don't understand how obsessed I am with winning.
Winning is not everything, but wanting to win is.
I've been keeping a diary for thirty-three years and write in it every morning. Most of it's just whining, but every so often there'll be something I can use later: a joke, a description, a quote. It's an invaluable aid when it comes to winning arguments. 'That's not what you said on February 3, 1996,' I'll say to someone.
We count on winning. And if we lose, don't beef. And the best way to prevent beefing is - don't lose.
I didn't lose. I got second. That's still winning. How could I be unhappy with second place? There are a million people who would love to be in my position.
People are too hung up on winning. I can get off on a really good helmet throw.
I think right now it's a battle for the mindshare of developers and for the mindshare of customers, and right now iPhone and Android are winning that battle.
I'm not an old, experienced hand at politics. But I am now seasoned enough to have learned that the hardest thing about any political campaign is how to win without proving that you are unworthy of winning.
Adlai E. Stevenson
Winning isn't everything, but it beats anything in second place.
William C. Bryant
I'm happy to be on a winning team. My individual success, that lasts for a short period of time. The success of being a part of the South, of Atlanta, which is now the hot bed of music, that's what's gonna last the longest. The fact that I contributed to planting our flag and moving music to my city, that's what I'm most proud of.
Masculinity is not something given to you, but something you gain. And you gain it by winning small battles with honor.
The biggest thrill wasn't in winning on Sunday but in meeting the payroll on Monday.
Most people give up just when they're about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game one foot from a winning touchdown.
In the executive branch, winning by a whisker is as good as winning in a landslide, but not so in the Senate.
The high point of my career was winning the Champions League. No one will ever erase that from my memory, in the same way that no one will ever erase the fact that I did it in a Manchester United shirt.
At a young age winning is not the most important thing... the important thing is to develop creative and skilled players with good confidence.
Winning takes precedence over all. There's no gray area. No almosts.
If we had no hope - for a cure, for winning the lottery, for falling in love, for the end of war, for being free of abuse, or for having food, warmth, clothing, and shelter - we would have no reason to go on. What you hope for doesn't matter, but rather the essence of hope itself.
Looking back, of course, it was irresponsible, mad, forlorn, idiotic, but if you don't take chances then you'll never have a winning hand, and I've no regrets.
Boom, crush. Night, losers. Winning, duh.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
