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.

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.

Winning is overrated. The only time it is really important is in surgery and war.
Don't believe that winning is really everything. It's more important to stand for something. If you don't stand for something, what do you win?
The threat posed by Bank of America isn't just financial - it's a full-blown assault on the American dream.

If this is what winning in our system looks like, who doesn't want to be a loser?

I'm not a big fan of the thought that you can become a star by winning a contest. I'm sort of old-fashioned. I think people need to get out there and they need to work and they need to do their music because they love it. If they become successful, then great, and if they are not, whatever.
I love the winning, I can take the losing, but most of all I Love to play.

The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.
