Ernie J Zelinski
It’s like most anything. If you want to be a loser, there’s always a way to dwell on the negative. If you want to win, there’s always a way to think positively.
Tony La Russa
Do not forget: seek to win all your battles, including those you fight against yourself. Do not fear the scars. Do not be afraid of victory.
Paulo Coelho
Win any way as long as you can get away with it. Nice guys finish last.
Leo Durocher
If your opponent has you by fifty pounds, winning a fight against him is a dubious proposition, at best. If your opponent has you by eight thousand and fifty pounds, you’ve left the realm of combat and enrolled yourself in Road-kill 101. Or possibly in a Tom and Jerry cartoon.
Jim Butcher
I strongly believe what we’re doing is the right thing. If I didn’t believe it — I’m going to repeat what I said before — I’d pull the troops out, nor if I believed we could win, I would pull the troops out.
George W. Bush
The difference being that in films, unlike in life, good does always win over evil in the end.
Ajay Devgan
No favor can win gratitude from a cat.
Jean de La Fontaine
Regardless of what happens, I still honor my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, because at the end of the day, that’s what’s important, win or lose. … We need to get back to one nation under God, and be role models for kids.
Tim Tebow
She [Hillary Clinton] was always expected to win the Democratic nomination so I wouldn’t be surprised if they picked those evenings .
Donald Trump
You have to attack to get corners, no? Winning by scoring strategic goals doesn’t bother me – it’s part of the game.
Diego Simeone
The joy I get from winning a major championship doesn’t even compare to the feeling I get when a kid writes a letter saying: ‘Thank you so much. You have changed my life.’
Tiger Woods
You can’t win all the time. There are guys out there who are better than you.
Yogi Berra
Win or lose, we go shopping after the election.
Imelda Marcos
Vegetarians have been around for a very long time – Pythagoreans forbade eating animals more than 2,500 years ago – but even as the environmental evidence mounted, they didn’t appear to be winning the argument.
Tristram Stuart
I will not play tug o’ war. I’d rather play hug o’ war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.
Shel Silverstein
Australia played some good cricket, but they have forgotten how to win.
Nasser Hussain
Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
Vince Lombardi
Parents would rather have their son get all-state than his team win the state championship.

Muhammad Ali
You rarely win, but sometimes you do.
Harper Lee
Loyalty in time of need is possibly one of the noblest of victories a courtier can win over himself.
Honore de Balzac
I don’t know whether any religious leader would say that we must ultimately win, because we’re on God’s side. If they do say that, it’s bad religion.
Reinhold Niebuhr
When you win, we win; but when you go down, you go down alone.
Luis J. Rodriguez
One little secret of the guys who have won one slam, is that we don’t want other guys to win one because its like a bit of a special fraternity.
Andy Roddick
Right after winning the Oscar, when everyone was going home, they let these little gold Oscary shapes flutter down from the ceiling. Leonardo DiCaprio came over, bowed down, and kissed my hand. It was the most fabulous moment – such a lovely gesture. He didn’t say anything.
Helen Mirren
The only reward in this game is winning. It’s no fun to practice; it’s no fun to play and lose.
Gerry DiNardo
Classical tragedy was the war between good and evil. We wanted evil to be defeated and good to be victorious. But the battle in modern tragedy is between good and good. And no matter which side wins, we’ll still be heartbroken.
Asghar Farhadi
Some pay to see me win, some pay to see me lose, but they all pay.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
All things being equal, attitude wins. All things not being equal, attitude sometimes still wins.
John C. Maxwell
We have to say now we think the character of the party has changed so far it will take something very exceptional, something really out of the ordinary line to make us be convinced there’s a chance of winning back the party.
Shirley Williams
Death is a supple suitor, that wins at last. It is a stealthy wooing; conducted first by pallid innuendos and dim approach, but brave at last with bugles.
Emily Dickinson
You can learn a line from a win and a book from a defeat.
Paul Brown
I want to win some Super Bowls, and so thats really my focus, to do whatever I have to do to lead this team to a championship.
Kurt Warner
In artillery exercises, women always win because they’re more accurate.
Michelle Bachelet
I told my caddie today that I am in the position that I want to be in. That this is what I have been waiting for, to win my tenth victory. I said that I am going to do everything that I can do today and that nothing is going to stop me.
Annika Sorenstam
The military’s job is to win the war. A president’s job is to win the peace.
John F. Kerry
I always like to win. But I’m the big sister. I want to make sure she has everything, even if I don’t have anything. It’s hard. I love her too much. That’s what counts.
Venus Williams
I think that you do get a little extra jolt of confidence when you win an Emmy.
Edie Falco
American economy is tricky. If you stay in the game you’re in a good position for the upswing. If you’re not in the game you can’t win.
Farrah Gray
I’m fighting for the girls that never thought they could win.
Nicki Minaj
So how critics will perceive your film or your work, or whether your movie is going to make $100 million at the box office, or whether you are going to be winning any awards – well, you have no control over that.
Charlize Theron
I’m not afraid to speak out, and say things that I want to do, or do the things that I want to do, so um, I think in the end, being natural, and being, being actually genuine is what wins.
Freddie Mercury
Magic is crazy. He is that crazy wild guy on the basketball court that is very intense and very serious. He is the guy who lives and eats and breathes basketball. Magic is a guy who would stand for nothing but winning and really prepared himself as well as he prepared his team. Earvin is the complete opposite.
Magic Johnson
We live in a culture full of hares; but the tortoise always wins.
Dave Ramsey
It does not take a great deal of imagination or courage to believe that God is on your side when you are prospering or winning; it takes a great deal of courage and imagination to believe that God is on your side when you are suffering or losing.
Peter J. Gomes
Success is not a sometimes thing. In other words, you don’t do what is right once in awhile, but all the time. Success is a habit. Winning is a habit.
Vince Lombardi
Win or lose, I’ll feel good about myself. That’s what is important.
Mary Docter
I’d rather win two or three, lose one, win two or three more. I’m a great believer in things evening out. If you win a whole bunch in a row, somewhere along the line you’re going to lose some, too.
Walter Alston
Everybody’s beatable. Mixed martial arts, there’s many ways to win, and that also means there are many ways to lose, as well.
Bas Rutten
I race to win. That’s the point.
Dathan Ritzenhein
If a writer publishes any thing that attracts notice, and is in itself just, but does not accord with our plan, we must endeavour to win him over, or decry him.
Adam Weishaupt
Superiority and success doesn’t favor good effort or self-esteem… The mentally precise and physically fit win, while the mediocre and obtuse take solace in hopeful cliches.
Bobby Knight
My serve was there, everything was just clicking. Those are the days you dream about, especially in a final.
Pete Sampras
Be aware of “yes” men. Generally, they are losers. Surround yourself with winners. Never forget – people win.
Bear Bryant
Winning a Grand Slam changes everything. There is so much off-court stuff to deal with. And there are expectations of keeping it going that make it tough.
Mary Pierce
It’s a no-win argument – that business of what we’re born with and what our environment does to us. And it’s a boring argument, because it simplifies the mysteries that attend both our birth and our growth.
John Irving
In business people negotiate to win. They negotiate to get what they want. Love is different. Love is when you are as concerned about someone else’s situation as you are about your own.
Mitch Albom
It is not reasonable that he who does not shoot should hit the mark, nor that he who does not stand fast at his post should win the day, or that the helpless man should succeed or the coward prosper.
The world looks a totally different place after two wins. I can even enjoy watching Blind Date or laugh at Noel’s House Party.
Gordon Strachan
You don’t win by making sensational plays; you win by not making mistakes.
Bum Phillips
Our goal was to win, to win a Super Bowl, but also to win in the right way, to be role models to our community, to represent Indianapolis, the state of Indiana and the National Football League.
Tony Dungy
Happiness is a great power of holiness. Thus, kind words, by their power of producing happiness, have also a power of producing holiness, and so of winning men to God.
Frederick William Faber
The persistent man with a poor plan stands a better chance of winning than the man with a perfect plan who hesitates and waivers in carrying it out.
Napoleon Hill
Winning means fame and fortune. Losing means certain death. The Hunger Games have begun.
Suzanne Collins
Winning an Oscar is an honor, but, between you and me, it does not makes things easier.
Robin Williams
The big story today, Barack Obama was accused of insulting Sarah Palin when he criticized Republican policies by saying, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig. Political experts say that if Obama keeps insulting Palin, he could lose the election and win a job at MSNBC.
Conan O’Brien
Life is not about winning the race. Life is about finishing the race, and how many people we can all help finish this race. How we can start being kinder to each other
Marc Mero
New solutions win by virtue of adoption, and they don’t get adopted if they’re bad solutions.
John Perry Barlow
When you are 16 there is no fear whatsoever. As you get older you play in more important games and that is when you start thinking about what will happen if you win or lose.
Wayne Rooney
The only way to win tournaments is with the short game. Over half your shots out here are within 30 or 40 yards. Ballstriking is where I’m trying to improve, yes, but more to eliminate big numbers than make birdies.
Phil Mickelson
Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life! Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!!
Bruce Lee
I have no happy fairyland vision that she can win.
Woodrow Wilson
The good quarterbacks in this league, if you’re not playing your best, sometimes will win a game for you
Kerry Rhodes
Losing feels worse than winning feels good.
Vin Scully
It is in the hard, hard rockpile labor of seeking to win, hold, or deserve a reader’s interest that the pleasant agony of writing again comes in.
John Mason Brown
Not only did I win the fight, but I won something that’s more than a fight could ever give me and that is gaining back a family.
Nonito Donaire
The idea of winning a doctor’s degree gradually assumed the aspect of a great moral struggle, and the moral fight possessed immense attraction for me.
Elizabeth Blackwell
Something interesting has happened over the last 10 years in the Premier League. Players who once would have been discarded as expensive and too old have become important parts of title-winning squads.
Gary Neville
We are all going to fall short. We are going to have some bitter losses, very painful defeats and failures. We have to use those to come back even stronger. That’s what makes it sweeter, when we can overcome those and figure out a way to win. The great teams can do that, and those are the gold medal winning teams.
Karch Kiraly
Care enough to make a difference. Care enough to turn somebody around. Care enough to change. Care enough to win.
Jim Rohn
The characteristic feature of all ethics is to consider human life as a game that can be won or lost and to teach man the means of winning.
Simone de Beauvoir
To be honest, it is boring to talk about winning.
Niki Lauda
Hope may be the thing that pulls you forward, may be the thing that keeps you going, but that it’s dangerous, that it’s painful and risky, that it’s making a dare in the world and when has the world ever let us win a dare?
Patrick Ness
I always lose the election in the polls, and I always win it on election day.
Benjamin Netanyahu
I used to get stressed out all the time when I thought winning was important. I wanted to try to win and help my kids win. Once I figured out it wasn’t about winning or losing, it was about teaching these kids about being men, that’s when I started to relax.
Snoop Dogg
The Internet is such a tough marketplace because everyone is a click away from going back to a cat photo, or going back to whatever else they were doing. You have to win them over, and do it quickly, and do it by making something people actually want.
Alexis Ohanian
Put the kids in with a few old pappy guys who still like to win and the combination is unbeatable.
Conn Smythe
The Six W’s: Work will win when wishing won’t.

I am as conservative as anyone running in this [president’s] race, but I am a conservative that can win. That’s a big deal.
Marco Rubio
What’s a good tournament for him? Winning it. He’s good enough.
Greg Norman
Politics is about winning. If you don’t win, you don’t get to put your principles into practice. Therefore, find a way to win, or sit the battle out.
David Horowitz
When we look at the Trump candidacy or we look at any Republican candidacy for the presidency that’s been successful, they tend to win by the margin of black and brown and poor people and immigrants who do not vote.
Marc Lamont Hill
For Burnley to win they are going to have to score.
Chris Kamara
It’s the whole big picture that we have to look at to create an organization that wins over the long term. And to just shoot from the hip on a decision based on winning over a 10-game period. No, that doesn’t make sense.
Henry Samueli
The only thing any entrepreneur, salesperson or anyone in any position can control is their effort.
Mark Cuban
When you lose the title, that doesn’t mean you lose the contract to what you had. Just like when you win the title, it doesn’t mean you win brains, PhDs and MAs.
Don King
Whoever wishes to win in this game must have patience and money, since the values are so little constant and the rumours so little founded on truth
James de la Vega
Choose to win
Get mad, then get over it.
Norman Schwarzkopf
Haters never win. I just think that’s true about life, because negative energy always costs in the end.
Tom Hiddleston
My dad’s like, If your mom and I are having sex and we videotape it and she falls out of bed funny, can I win ten-thousand dollars?
Bob Saget
No, I’m not (disappointed). There’s no reason to be because I’m on an incredible run. You always expect a loss once in a while. So when it happens, why be disappointed if I win over 90% of my matches.
Roger Federer
In an IT lead world, incumbents generally win because they have the existing relationship with the IT organization.
Aaron Levie
The 2004 presidential election that saw George W. Bush win with 51 percent of the vote was the last one Republicans will ever win with the overwhelmingly white and male coalition they have now.
John Podhoretz
Getting to the playoffs is more important than winning an award.
Corey Perry
Go forth a conqueror and win great victories.
I just can’t vote to go to war unless I think there’s a real clear-cut American purpose in the war, that we’re going to win and that we’re not going fight for stalemate.
Rand Paul
Being on par in terms of price and quality only gets you into the game. Service wins the game.
Tony Alessandra
Mental strength is really important because you either win or lose in your mind.
Wladimir Klitschko
You’ve got to get to the stage in life where going for it is more important than winning or losing.
Arthur Ashe
On the street luge side, you need to have a solid core and balance. A healthy body is a must in that sport if you want to compete for wins, and my diet has certainly enabled me to make the most of myself.
Andy Lally
I think its easy to enjoy anywhere that you play where you feel like you got a chance to win a lot.
Tom Lehman
Games in hand are a good thing only if you win them.
Patrick Marleau
I think service to others is the real key to winning our own personal freedom and the road to our own happiness, our own personal contentment and fulfillment.
Martin Sheen
Talking about [Donald] Trump, there’s nothing wrong with Trump. He’s who he is. It’s wrong with us, who let him [win]. That’s what’s wrong. It’s not that he’s going to change, but the people who think like him.
Marina Abramovic
I don’t doubt myself ever, but people that don’t know me do. I’ve been playing for 15 years, and have the most playoffs wins in Wings history for a reason, and not because I’m a bad goalie.
Chris Osgood
If there’s one thing I believe more than I believe anything else, it’s that you can’t fake the core. The truth that lives there will eventually win out. It’s a god we must obey, a force that brings us all inevitably to our knees.
Cheryl Strayed
Hillary Clinton has had a small but persistent lead since June – anywhere from 2 to 5 points. The stock markets and the election betting pools are predicting a Clinton win.
Mara Liasson
The only thing I wanted in free agency was an opportunity to continue to chase that dream and continue to win championships.?
Tyson Chandler
When you’re winning – you don’t need any friends. When you’re losing – you don’t have any friends anyway.
Woody Hayes
It is well known that a man, when wooing a lady to be his wife, must first win over the females she most confides in—her friends, of course, and her sister, if she has one.
Anna Godbersen
If you miss one moment of enjoying your own life and relationships because you’re trying to punish someone else, the bad guy wins.
Amy Dickinson
I was running track early in my years and I was breaking track records in sprint running. I was training and I wanted to be in the Olympics. I thought I was going to be able to win a gold medal, and my mind was pretty much set on ‘this is what I want to do’.
Sheila E.
It has actually been suggested that warfare may have been the principle evolutionary pressure that created the huge gap between the human brain and that of our closest living relatives, the anthropoid apes. Whole groups of hominids with inferior brains could not win wars and were therefore exterminated.
Jane Goodall
I think as you get older, you realize there’s always going to be critics. Critics are going to win every time because they can change their critique based on the stats and their own personal feelings.
Aaron Rodgers
In creating superdelegates, the Democratic Party recognized the expertise that its top holders of public office have gained by running for office themselves. They are experts at winning. They know the issues. They are in a unique position to evaluate presidential candidates.
Jim Hunt
We are pushing the limits on the chassis and the engine sides a lot in order to have a competitive car, and this is why we are winning races, but also, if you push the limits at a certain stage, you find them.
Toto Wolff
To win a national championship, you’ve got to be a little lucky.
Lou Holtz
I don’t know how anyone can put on a uniform and not care about winning.
Dave LaPoint
Heads I win, tails I don’t lose much.
Mohnish Pabrai
It looks like they [the Republicans] don’t want to win if it means winning with [Donald] Trump. They must really hate Trump out there.
Rush Limbaugh
If you make it into an Olympic team, you’re good; if you make it into an Olympic final, you’re great; and if you win an Olympic medal you’re a freak.
Raelene Boyle
If everyone doesn’t pay the price to win, then everyone will pay the price of losing.
John C. Maxwell
Nobody wants to lose. But I don’t care what my win-loss record is. At the end of the day, I don’t look at it.
Tim Lincecum
There’s no shame in having to fight every day, but fighting every day, and presumably, if you’re still alive to hear these words or read this interview, then you are winning your war. You’re here.
Jared Padalecki
To win the cause we all believe in, the spread of true democracy all over the world, we need to win by example, not just with speeches but by example; not just with military might but by gaining the respect of the world.
Barbara Boxer
You hold the ones you love close and fight the battles you can win, and that, Kitten, is how it is.
Jeaniene Frost
Every interpersonal situation has a solution in which everyone wins.
Del Close
Comparison, a great teacher once told me, is the cardinal sin of modern life. It traps us in a game that we can’t win. Once we define ourselves in terms of others, we lose the freedom to shape our own lives.
James C. Collins
Once you are in it you are in it, you have to go all the way to the end because you commit yourself to such a level where there is no compromise. You give everything you have absolutely everything. Sometimes you find even more because you require more if you want to stay ahead and you want to win.
Ayrton Senna
[Malcolm Subban] is probably winning the battle cause we had a couple skates together and I didn’t score too much on him. So I guess I’ll say that I’m waiting for the game to score on him.
P. K. Subban
All my life, the naysayers have told me that I can’t win because I’m a progressive… because I’m a woman… even because I’m a lesbian.
Tammy Baldwin
Invest your time with people who will push you to be your best. Winners love to see other people win.
Chalene Johnson
Anyone can support a team that is winning – it takes no courage. But to stand behind a team to defend a team when it is down and really needs you, that takes a lot of courage.
Bart Starr
I think the good news is that our team understands the positon they’re in. If they want to win a division or a conference, they’re going to have to fix their mistakes.
Les Miles
Wipeout is a giant obstacle course for adults of all shapes, sizes, and ages. Whoever wins takes home $50,000 and gets to brag to all of their coworkers that they made it out alive!
Jill Wagner
At Spotify, we really want you to democratically win as a musician. We want you to win because your music is the best music.
Daniel Ek
When it comes to disputes before the World Trade Organization, we generally win.
Cecilia Malmstrom
All I know is I have a job here as long as I win.
Toe Blake
No matter what kind of night you’re having, morning always wins.
Barbara Kingsolver
Every day the word ‘gift’ is used to define talent, ability, and performance. Being gifted has an even deeper meaning, a meaning that isn’t always measured in points per game or win/loss records – it’s measured by heart, effort, and desire.
Alan Cohen
You know what Americans are really sensitive to? Issues of fairness. I think this is a modern phenomenon, born of the civil rights movement. Once you convince Americans that something is basically unfair, you’ve got a winning cause.
Gail Collins
IT don’t matter if you win by an inch or a milewinning is winning!!
Vin Diesel
There are winners, there are losers and there are people who have not yet learned how to win.
Les Brown
I feel like at the Olympics I gave the best performance of my life and I wasn’t rewarded for that as an athlete. Yes, my fans and my mom were happy about it, but I didn’t win that gold medal.
Johnny Weir
We don’t seek to destroy our enemies. After all, Jesus taught that our love must extend even to enemies. It’s a remarkable teaching. Not to destroy enemies, but to convert hearts, to win people over to the cause of justice.
Robert P. George
John Prescott has made the government look greedy and ridiculous. Labour is seen as the corrupt party. The government has been fulfilling the old rule that oppositions do not win elections, governments lose them.
William Rees-Mogg
The coach should keep out of the way… He is an important figure, of course, but is more likely to lose a match than win it. Matches are won by players.
Man can seldom – very, very, seldom – fight a winning fight against his training; the odds are too heavy.
Mark Twain
Sometimes you learn more from losing than winning. Losing forces you to reexamine.
Pat Summitt
You never win a game unless you beat the guy in front of you. The score on the board doesn’t mean a thing. That’s for the fans. You’ve got to win the war with the man in front of you. You’ve got to get your man.
Vince Lombardi
Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
Abraham Lincoln
The war against illegal file-sharing is like the church’s age-old war against masturbation. It’s a war you just can’t win.
Lawrence Lessig
Not to win is guttering.
Mark Noble
I struggled to stay on the pace there in the back half. But, at the end of the day I wanted to win this race. The Millrose is a prestigious event and it’s definitely something I wanted to do in my career.
Kim Conley
Win or lose you will never regret working hard, making sacrifices, being disciplined or focusing too much. Success is measured by what we have done to prepare for competition.
John Smith
To be completely honest, I didn’t want to compete with myself. I wanted to reinvent myself. This seemed like the perfect way to step back in without competing with what I’ve already done, because I can’t win that battle.
Marta Kauffman
I want to win the game. I dont worry about taking over the game unless I have to.
Carmelo Anthony
The person that always wins, that`s the other thing. The monkey picking stocks always wins.
Chris Hayes
With United, we’d all grown up together, we all wanted to win the biggest trophy in football. We did it togther.
David Beckham
A team doesn’t win the championship if its players are working from different agendas.
John C. Maxwell
A great defensive effort. The one thing we have to do is make it hard for people to beat us. We’re not worried about winning and losing, we just have to make the game hard
John Calipari
For me, victory isn’t measured by winning in the traditional sense.
Dinesh D’Souza
What is a better way to prove that your methods work than by winning? I have proved that my methods work.
Bela Karolyi
It feels good to come here and be a winning program.
Kevin Durant
We have fossils… We win!
Lewis Black
We picked the Red Sox because they lose. If you root for something that loses for 86 years, you’re a pretty good fan. You don’t have to win everything to be a fan of something.
Jimmy Fallon
Let us then try what Love will do: For if Men do once see we love them, we should soon find they would not harm us.
William Penn
The Internet will win because it is relentless. Like a cannibal, it even turns on it own. Though early portals like Prodigy and AOL once benefited from their first-mover status, competitors surpassed them as technology and consumer preferences changed.
John Sununu
No way did I ever think I was going to win the 100m.
Betty Cuthbert
If you want to be at the top, you need to have the winning mentality and the calmness.
Dejan Lovren
It is true to say that the secret of a winning formula is the ability to accept that there is a vast area of unexploited potential beyond what you currently perceive to be your maximum.
Steve Backley
I was recently voted best standup never to win a major.
Andy Kindler
I’m addicted to winning. The more you win, the more you want to win.
Larry Ellison
The devil lives in our mistakes, the lord lives in our rights. Who lives in our ignorance, and who wins after all?
Maya Angelou
I’m not playing for the All-Star Game, I’m playing to win games.
Michael Redd
Dhoni is one of the greatest captain I have ever seen. Dhoni’s record is praiseworthy. Twenty-two Test wins is not a small achievement. And the success against Australia has come against the backdrop of the not-so-good times he went through in the last two years
Sourav Ganguly
Graffiti ultimately wins out over proper art because it becomes part of your city, it’ s a tool; “I’ll meet you in that pub, you know, the one opposite that wall with a picture of a monkey holding a chainsaw”. I mean, how much more useful can a painting be than that?
Ideas are easy. Execution is everything. It takes a team to win.
John Doerr
The two most fundamental strategic choices are deciding where to play and how to win.
Roger Martin
I expect us to win. I expect us to get better every day.
LeBron James
It was a defeat, resorting to crude threats in a game of subtlety, but sometimes one must sacrifice a battle to win the war.
Mark Lawrence
It’s time for the New England Patriots to move on and that’s what our job is. And as I said, our goal is the same: to have a winning football team, to be a pillar in the community. That’s what our direction is; that’s what we’re going to do.
Bill Belichick
If I can lead a happy life, touch the lives of others in a positive way, win the respect of those that I care about… and make a few million along the way, then I have been successful.
Bill Rancic
And it is through strife and the readiness for strife that a man or a nation must win greatness. So, let the world know that we are here and willing to pour out our blood, our treasure, our tears. And that America is ready and if need be desirous of battle
Theodore Roosevelt
If you do not feel a fervent love and profound pity for humanity, be assured that the gift of Christian eloquence has been denied you. You will not win souls, neither will you acquire that most excellent of earthly sovereignties – sovereignty over human hearts….Love is irresistible.
Dwight L. Moody
But to win, I was overwhelmed – it felt great! I was really excited. I didn’t expect it, but I’m also really competitive. As soon as I hear the word “competition” I get serious and start doing everything that I can do.
Maureen McCormick
I’ve seen a lot in my life. I’ve seen a lot of winning. I’ve seen a lot of testing times. I think when you’re tested, you really find out what you’re made of, OK?
Jerry West
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is the most influential woman in Washington – for what she has accomplished and for what she may yet do: win the presidency.
Ron Fournier
They baffle me where they go with the storylines… we used to be a Golden Globe winning show.
Jeremy London
It’s a special honor to be one of the leaders of this football team. But I said it once, I’ll say it again, no one person wins a game by themselves. Individually, it’s top of the mountain, my sport, my profession. It’s what you dream about as a kid.
Aaron Rodgers
If Michelle Pfeiffer gave Mel Gibson a vial of blood to wear around his neck in a movie you’d think it was terribly romantic, everyone would cry and they’d win awards. But in real life if someone does that they’d be considered weird.
Billy Bob Thornton
From my mom and dad, because they’re happily married for a long time: Just listen. Listen to him. I’m so independent and driven and stubborn. Just let him talk. It’s about not being so stubborn and having to win every argument. My parents set a great example. They love each other and take care of each other so much.
Erin Andrews
You want to win big? PFS Style? Start early & get promoted strong at every level!
Shane Perry
Scientists say over the next hundred years, the coast of California will sink almost five feet. So the presidential candidates need to do something. Mitt Romney is conflicted. On one hand, he denies that global warming exists. But if California is under water, he would definitely win the next election.
Craig Ferguson
And just because God attains and wins and finds this uniqueness all our lives win in our union with him the individuality which is essential to their true meaning.

Sachin Tendulkar
It’s nice when little teams win.
Adam Sandler
I dont believe it wins championships. (It) gets you to the playoffs.
Byron Scott
Only the completely enlightened are beyond winning and losing. Yet, strangely enough, they had to win to get to the point of being beyond winning and losing.
Frederick Lenz
The monarchy is so extraordinarily useful. When Britain wins a battle she shouts, God save the Queen; when she loses, she votes down the prime minister.
Winston Churchill
Eddie Robinson is about one word: winning and losing.
Paul Collier
And once, or twice, to throw the dice is a gentlemanly game, But he does not win who plays with Sin in the secret house of shame
Oscar Wilde
Like every poor person, I used to dream about winning the lottery. I didn’t just get money, though. I got fame. And I got fame before I got money, and it was scary.
Amber Rose
There are some concrete ways to create a winning attitude. But nothing beats practicing it. When you prepare to win, belief comes easily.
Pat Summitt
After winning, most teams become individuals; most teams become complacent.
Lou Holtz
The only alternative to soul winning is disobedience to Christ.
Curtis Hutson
We are positive about our win and we know that our match was perhaps not as physical as the other matches on the weekend, so I think we have an advantage in that we have an extra day to recover.
Naka Drotske
I was certainly never conscious of ‘playing the woman’. I would not have approved of that. It is not a winning tactic. I operated in the world as I found it, and it was a man’s world.
Pauline Neville-Jones, Baroness Neville-Jones
It’s always nice to start the season with a win.
Yao Ming
Diplomacy matters. Burden-sharing matters. Follow-through matters. And yes, sustaining the peace is harder, more complex and often costlier than winning the war itself. No matter the surge of momentary machismo — as gratifying as it may be for some — it’s short-sighted and wrong to simply go it alone.
Dick Gephardt
When I got my tour card I cried. When I got my first win – and my first pay check – I cried. All these things make me cry.
Bubba Watson
It is my aim to win the american people over to our side, to make them all lovers of beer.
Adolphus Busch
I know who I want to fight, but I don’t pick my opponents; I leave it up to my team. They make those kinds of decisions. My job is to fight and win.
Leo Santa Cruz
As a well cut diamond has many facets, each reflecting a different color of light, so does the word yoga, each facet reflecting a different shade of meaning and revealing different aspects of the entire range of human endeavor to win inner peace and happiness.
B.K.S. Iyengar
When armies are mobilized and issues joined, the man who is sorry over the fact will always win.
Winning is overrated. The only time it is really important is in surgery and war.
Al McGuire
I was playing little league baseball when Bruce Jenner was winning the gold, but I don’t think I was really paying attention at that time. It wasn’t until 1980 – I think I was 12 years old – that I thought, ‘Wow that’s what I want to do. I want to be on the Olympic team.’
Dan O’Brien
I love dudes who are about winning and that is Kobe Bryant !
Stephen A. Smith
Politics is theater. It doesn’t matter if you win. You make a statement. You say, “I’m here, pay attention to me
Harvey Milk
I (God) will leave man to make the fateful guess, Will leave him torn between the no and yes, Leave him unresting till he rests in me, Drawn upward by the choice that makes him free, Leave him in tragic loneliness to choose, With all in life to win or all to lose.
Edwin Markham
When a person has a gun, sometimes their mind clicks that this thing … will win arguments and straighten people out.
Bill Cosby
Once you run and once you win with an unabashed progressive feminist standard, then it becomes easier for everybody else who’s running.
Christine Pelosi
Winning is like shaving – you do it every day or you wind up looking like a bum.
Jack Kemp
Please choose the way of peace.. In the short term there may be winners and losers in this war that we all dread. But that never can, nor never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause.
Mother Teresa
My family’s the most important thing in my life.
Joe Namath
Don’t be concerned that things appear to be falling apart: this has to happen in order for something new and wonderful to emerge.
Marianne Williamson
The old rules and the old methods of winning are gone.
Dick Morris
1960, I was 20 years old, and I was leading the U.S. Open. Now, I wasn’t leading by several strokes, but I was leading the U.S. Open and playing with Ben Hogan, had a very good chance to win, nine holes to go, I was leading. I was still leading with six holes to play.
Jack Nicklaus
It’s an addictive thing. It’s not so much I like to go win, but it’s a rush.
Corbin Bernsen
Just know this, if that day does come where I do win this mirrorball, know that I didn’t just win it for me, but I won it for all of us with MS.
Jack Osbourne
But you are beautiful And you better go show it So go look again You gotta be true to your own If you really wanna go to the top Do you really wanna win Don’t believe in leaving normal Just to satisfy demand ((Beauty in Ugly))
Jason Mraz
To dilute the will to win is to destroy the purpose of the game. There is no substitute for victory.
Douglas MacArthur
You know, when you run you got to be all in and you take risks of winning and losing.
Jeb Bush
To win elections, politicians have promised practically endless government spending and covered up the cost, leaving generations of taxpayers obligated to pay off the debt. That’s wrong, but neither the U.S. nor Europe has a plan to stop it.
David Malpass
Winning is the science of being totally prepared.
George Allen, Sr.
And then to end up with a total of 347 wins, averaging 10 regular season wins for 33 years and the best winning percentage, and I’m very proud of this, of any professional team from 1970 to 1996.
Don Shula
There is nothing worth the wear of winning, but laughter and the love of friends.
James Boswell
I’ve distilled everything to one simple principle: win or die!
Glenn Close
Life is not fair. And you have to choose your battles, because there are some that you cannot win. If you’re passionate about something, then you should pick up your flag and run with it.
Bette Midler
It is impossible to win a contest with a helpless opponent since if you win you have won nothing.
Jay Haley
Good teams make the playoffs, hot teams win the playoffs.
Derek Jeter
When things are going awry, it’s time to put the blinders on and do your job. Just do your job. Don’t worry about the other guy, don’t worry about the wins and losses, just worry about what the very next play is.
John Riggins
We care about how many players you develop rather than how many trophies you win.
Claudio Reyna
God never asked us to meet life’s pressures and demands on our own terms or by relying upon our own strength. Nor did He demands that we win His favor by assembling an impressive portfolio of good deeds. Instead, He invites us to enter His rest.
Charles R. Swindoll
I know I have plenty of enemies, but I’d rather be the most-hated winning coach in the country than the most-popular losing one.
Adolph Rupp
The greatest victory a man can win is victory over himself.
Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi
Some people might say my coming out after just winning the MVP award is heroic, and I understand that.
Sheryl Swoopes
Stellar teams are invariably made up of quirky individuals who typically rub each other raw, but they figure out – with the spiritual help of a gifted leader – how to be their peculiar selves and how to win championships as a team…at the same time.
Tom Peters
I let my racket do the talking. That’s what I am all about, really. I just go out and win tennis matches.
Pete Sampras
Business is a game, and as with all games, the team that puts the best people on the field and gets them playing together wins. It’s that simple.
Jack Welch
The woman wins who calls herself beautiful, and challenges the world to change to fit her vision.
Naomi Wolf
We all have our moments of being fed up … but give me your hand and I’ll hold it. If you are being bullied I am thinking of you. You are not alone and it will get better. Don’t let them win. It’s okay not to be okay.
Jessie J
To win in Vietnam, we will have to exterminate a nation.
Benjamin Spock
The conqueror is regarded with awe; the wise man commands our respect; but it is only the benevolent man that wins our affection.
William Dean Howells
We do not have a plan. They do. History shows that those that plan, anticipate and have a coherent strategy usually win. We are not winning.
Whoever is across the net, I want to win. Whoever that person is, that’s the day I want to win.
Venus Williams
I just paint to fulfill an urge. When I don’t have the urge, I just don’t paint. This is not some stupid contest. But if it is, I feel like the winner that came in last.
Jim Rowe
I don’t know if I even have an aura, man. I just try to win.
Tiger Woods
Hump it, bump it, whack it! It might be a recipe for a good sex life but it won’t win the World Cup.
Ken Bates
I am not designed to come second or third. I am designed to win.
Ayrton Senna
I hate to lose more than I love to win.
Jimmy Connors
I know I can go out there and play much better than I did yesterday. But to come out with a win is key.
Drew Brees
We’re gonna need more than winning elections; we’re gonna need to change the way people think, and they’re not gonna change what they think if there’s no counter to the way liberalism is presented in the pop culture.
Rush Limbaugh
As a driver you enjoy winning races and, if you win in the easiest way possible, fine, but in reality we all remember the fights to the end, the nip-and-tuck stuff.
Allan McNish
All I cared about in tennis was winning.
Pete Sampras
Coach (Pat) Riley told us on June 8 we’d win the title on June 20.

I think it’s a lot harder when you’re opening. You really have to win people over.
Simon Taylor-Davis
Common Core is a big win for education.
Bill Gates
Americans don’t win. Our country doesn’t win. We don’t win at trade. We don’t win. We can’t beat ISIS.
Donald Trump
You’ve got to rattle your cage door. You’ve got to let them know that you’re in there, and that you want out. Make noise. Cause trouble. You may not win right away, but you’ll sure have a lot more fun.
Florynce Kennedy
The RNC has made a concerted effort to work with their allies with a real focus on what we can do to equip candidates with the resources to win in 2014 and beyond. There isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t see someone from the RNC at our weekly coalition meeting. Keep up the good work.
Grover Norquist
It surprised me, the feeling I got when I won the Oscar for ‘Scent of a Woman.’ It was a new feeling. I’d never felt it. I don’t see my Oscar much now. But when I first got it, there was a feeling for weeks afterward that I guess is akin to winning a gold medal in the Olympics.
Al Pacino
Winning is everything.
Jeff Rich
Interactive management requires open, honest, and tension-free relationships with others. You do this by negotiating relationships and sharing, so that everybody wins.
Tony Alessandra
Easier will always win out over harder.
James Cook
I don’t know, I always get the question ‘how do you feel after the game today?’ and, of course, if you’re winning you feel great and if you lose you don’t feel good. I think that’s a pretty obvious question.
Caroline Wozniacki
But without humans, the wild would take over. It would only take a hundred years or so for nature to win again.
Lucy Christopher
Wall Street sometimes gets confused between risk and uncertainty, and you can profit handsomely from that confusion. The low-risk, high-uncertainty [situation] gives us our most sought after coin-toss odds. Heads, I win; tails, I don’t lose much.
Mohnish Pabrai
Business is like tennis. Those who serve well win.
Ken Blanchard
Competing is exciting and winning is exhilarating, but the true prize will always be the self-knowledge and understanding that you have gained along the way.
Sebastian Coe
Just because you win the French Open it doesn’t mean you can do well at Wimbledon .
Li Na
Not being invited in is one of the boxes on the “suspicious behavior” bingo form that every copper carries around in their head along with “stupidly overpowerful dog” and being too quick to supply an alibi. Fill all the boxes and you too could win an all-­expenses-paid visit to your local police station.
Ben Aaronovitch
Only wisdom and virtue can truly win men’s devotion.
Liu Bei
If we look backwards to antiquity it should be as those that are winning a race.
Charles Caleb Colton
We’ve created a multitrillion-dollar edifice for dispensing the medical equivalent of lottery tickets – and have only the rudiments of a system to prepare patients for the near certainty that those tickets will not win. Hope is not a plan, but hope is our plan.
Atul Gawande
No one should expect the value of their house to appreciate quickly – counting on your home to be a significant part of your retirement saving isn’t a winning strategy – but it is reasonable to expect that prices generally will rise with at least the rate of inflation for some time to come.
Mark Zandi
We’re not winning because of talent. We’re just beating bad teams.
Michael Jordan
Before America entered the war [WW2] I knew we could not win it, but after she entered I knew we could not lose
Winston Churchill
I want to remind you all that in order to fight and win the war, it requires an expenditure of money that is commiserate with keeping a promise to our troops to make sure that they’re well paid, well trained, well equipped.
George W. Bush
I love Viacom. I love CBS. And so I don’t want to die. I have a will to live. The same will to win that I’ve always had. And — I’m gonna fight death as long as I can. I like it here. I don’t want to go anywhere else.
Sumner Redstone
It’s lovely to have money to give away – that’s the bonus of winning the Nobel.
Doris Lessing
Having Messi in the team guarantees everything. He doesn’t just score, he gives assists, and he works and wins the ball. He is the best player in the world.
Sergio Busquets
Movement is meditation. Move to win.
Conor McGregor
If the best the roboticists can hope for is the creation of some crude, cheesy, second-rate, artificial consciousness, they still win.
Daniel Dennett
Football – it’s not fun when you lose. That’s a heartbreaking thing. But then there’s a new week, and a new opportunity and I definitely get happier and happier as that new opportunity approaches. So ‘win the next game,’ that’s my mindset.
Jim Harbaugh
The team with the best athletes doesn’t usually win. It’s the team with the athletes who play best together.
Lisa Fernandez
I want to win a championship with the best drivers, the best engineers and the best technology. As drivers, we want to make sure that we are involved in a championship with such a standard.
Sam Bird
The USA should invade the USA and win the hearts and minds of the population by building roads, bridges and putting locals to work.
Paul Myers
Boys, baseball is a game where you gotta have fun. You do that by winning.
Dave Bristol
Grassroots organizing tends to be most available to big campaigns, but it’s actually most useful to small ones. You can’t win a presidential campaign without going on TV, but you can win a local election simply by organizing your community. NationBuilder levels the playing field.
Joe Greene
I think George Bush is going to win in a walk. I really believe I’m hearing from the Lord it’s going to be like a blowout election in 2004.
Pat Robertson
It was so hard [to do Gigi Does It show]. On paper, that formula is almost impossible to create a winning show with, but then you add four and a half hours of prosthetic makeup every morning, three-inch nails, acrylics, the whole thing, and it nearly killed me.
David Krumholtz
I’ve never really understood the desire people have to quantify a baby. “He’s X big and Y long,” As if the baby is a fish you’re not sure you’re going to keep. Or some prize potato you’re hoping will win a prize at the county fair.
Patrick Rothfuss
Everybody likes to win. I don’t care if you work for a small plumbing company or the most successful company in the world. There’s a special flavor to winning.
Marcelo Claure
The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise, they will win and the decent people will lose.
James Earl Jones
I got that nickname my first spring training camp with the Expos in 1974. Tim Foli, Ken Singleton and Mike Jorgensen started calling me ‘Kid’ because I was trying to win every sprint. I was trying to hit every pitch out of the park.
Gary Carter
Why can’t a woman be more like a man? Men are so honest, so thoroughly square; Eternally noble, historically fair; Who, when you win, will always give your back a pat. Why can’t a woman be like that?
Alan Jay Lerner
I might not win a Grammy or get another Stellar Award but I’ll get my rewards from the Lord. There’s nothing better than that.
Trip Lee
What we fight with is so small, and when we win, it makes us small. What we want is to be defeated, decisively, by successively greater things
Rainer Maria Rilke
A man does not fight to win; it is better to fight in vain.
Edmond Rostand
The definition of a Racist is anybody winning an argument with a liberal.
Bill Whittle
We all need to be compassionate and know that its is a game for all of us to win, we have to be on the same page and raise our level of awareness of what’s possible and the awareness of how powerful we are and how good we need to be to each other.
John Assaraf
In some sense the text and the translator are locked in struggle – ‘I attacked that sentence, it resisted me, I attacked another, it eluded me’ – a struggle in which, curiously, when the translator wins, the text wins too.
Lydia Davis
When I win, I’ll put my title on the line every year, maybe even twice. I’ll give players a chance to beat me.
Bobby Fischer
There are victories of the soul and spirit. Sometimes, even if you lose, you win.
Elie Wiesel
A bad guy always assumes he’s going to win, whereas the good guy has to struggle with, what if I lose?, and the audience wants to struggle with him.
David Gallagher
I can’t count the times I have lagged seemingly hopelessly far behind, and nobody except myself thinks I can win. But I have pulled myself in from desperate [situations]. When you are behind there are two strategies – counter-attack or all men to the defences. I’m good at finding the right balance between those.
Magnus Carlsen
If acids win – you lose!
Robert Morse
It’s never over. You don’t want to be in the position to be down four runs in the ninth inning, but it’s not over until the last out.
Derek Jeter
You can pick any game and there are two or three plays that determine whether you win or lose, going either way. That’s the beauty of the league, man. Every game counts, no matter who you’re playing or what their record is.
Derrick Brooks
I think the way we played was as important as winning the title, the way we did it with the players and the fans enjoying it.
Manuel Pellegrini
If the idea of revolution is to win out, it must be through political enlightenment. It is useless to try to impose it by force of arms.
Sun Yat-sen
I was lucky enough to win the Davis Cup in my first year in 1999. I won my first slam at the U.S. Open in 2001 and became world No. 1 later that year. By the age of 20, I’d done it all.
Lleyton Hewitt
If you want to win a horse race, you need your horse to be 100%.
Arsene Wenger
In theory we are all equal before the law. In practice, there are overwhelming privileges that come with winning the birth lottery.
Arianna Huffington
Truth be told, most of us are faking our way through life. We pick only those battles we are sure to win, only those adventures we are sure to handle, only those beauties we are sure to rescue.
John Eldredge
Find the game where you can win, and then commit your life to playing it; and play to win.
Robert Kiyosaki
It matters in a fatherly way.
Shaquille O’Neal
The Daytona 500 is a career-winning race. It defines careers for drivers, crew members, crew chiefs and race teams. It has that power.
Jimmie Johnson
The greatest mistake any man ever made is to suppose that the good things of the world are not worth the winning.
Anthony Trollope
After I went through two years of not winning an event, what kept me going was winning one more major. Once I won that last U.S. Open, I spent the next six months trying to figure out what was next. Slowly my passion for the sport just vanished. I had nothing left to prove.
Pete Sampras
I’ve enjoyed winning races in both 500cc and MotoGP and enjoyed leading the world championship and contesting it right up until the end.
Sete Gibernau
Sometimes you can really serve well and win the match because of the serve. I have the opposite thing now, so it’s kind of hard. I can just really play with my forehand and backhand.
Agnieszka Radwanska
The goal of winning is not losing two times in a row.
Rosabeth Moss Kanter
Ability wins us the esteem of the true men; luck, that of the people.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Don’t be afraid to fail. Anything that I’ve ever attempted I was always willing to fail. You can’t always win, but don’t be afraid of making decisions.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Part of being a champ is acting like a champ. You have to learn how to win and not run away when you lose.
Nancy Kerrigan
We must give alms. Charity wins souls and draws them to virtue.
Angela Merici
The lack of women directors is a sad fact of life. Kathryn Bigelows thrilling Best Director win may help turn things around.
Lynda Obst
We played for the love of the game; there were few holdouts. We wanted to pitch every day; to win more games than the other guy – not for the money, but for the glory of winning.
Kid Nichols
The thrill isn’t in the winning, it’s in the doing.
Chuck Noll
Each social formation, through each of its material activities, exerts its influence upon the civic whole; and each of its ideas and ideals wins also its place and power.
Patrick Geddes
In running, it doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are relative to anyone else. You set your own pace and you measure your own progress. You can’t lose this race because you’re not running against anyone else. You’re only running against yourself, and as long as you are running, you are winning.
Amby Burfoot
Wimbledon is getting a bit too like Royal Ascot. It’s not what happens or who wins so much, as what clothes do I have on.
David Lloyd
Wild rivers are earth’s renegades, defying gravity, dancing to their own tunes, resisting the authority of humans, always chipping away, and eventually always winning.
Richard Bangs
As tennis players, you are never satisfied. We are greedy as players, always want better results.
Sania Mirza
Going to the gym was never about ‘working out’ like it is for most people. To me, It was a matter of life or death. It was either me or the weights-and I was going to win. I’ve always had that competitive streak, whether it was in the gym, on the stage, or In anything else I did.
Rich Gaspari
Don’t think you have to be the disrupter to win. A fast-following disruptee will do very well if you can bring your existing customers and ecosystem along with you.
Geoffrey Moore
Ah, fool! faint heart fair lady ne’er could win.
Edmund Spenser
You cannot win if you’re not at the table. You have to be where the action is.
Ben Stein
It’s kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to Him and the blessings fall down on me.
Gabby Douglas
Security wins many battles but loses the security war. We are definitely going backwards in computer security.
Adi Shamir
You cannot lose games in the NFL, and still win
Trent Dilfer
You never tire of winning.
Luka Modric
When I come into a tournament, I’m expecting to win. That’s my philosophy. I can’t go to a tournament thinking, ‘I’m going to get my ass kicked today, so I might as well leave.’
Maria Sharapova
Remember that it is not the lawyer who knows the most law, but the one who best prepares his case, who wins.
Napoleon Hill
And you learn [how to win] starting in the minor leagues, by winning day in and day out.
Eric Byrnes
The American culture especially, and Western culture in general, urges us to not only become the best that we can be, but also win against the competition.
Roger Housden
The culture precedes positive results. It doesn’t get tacked on as an afterthought on your way to the victory stand. Champions behave like champions before they’re champions: they have a winning standard of performance before they are winners.
Bill Walsh
The liberal state is neutral between capitalism and its critics until the critics look like they are winning.
Terry Eagleton
To win, you’ve got to put the ball in the macramГ©.
Terry McGuire
If you’re going to play at all, you’re out to win. Baseball, board games, playing Jeopardy, I hate to lose.
Derek Jeter
Fiction. . . . It’s like goading a mongoose and a cobra into battle and staying with them to see who wins.
Shauna Singh Baldwin
In fact, in the early days of the Republican primary, I was pointing to Governor [Scott ] Walker as the one guy who was demonstrating he knew how to fight back against the radical left and win! And he’s tough, and he didn’t shrink from it.
Rush Limbaugh
You can win, it’ll just cost you some money.
Bobby Heenan
Everyone wants to win, but I think winners believe they deserve to win. They’ve made the commitment, they’ve followed the right path, and they’ve taken the right steps to be successful.
Amy Ruley
Being a runner means you are now ‘free’ to win and lose and live life to its fullest.
Bill Rodgers
Coaching doesn’t start with X’s and O’s. It starts with believing that players win games and coaches win players.
Bill Courtney
When you’re a political leader, when you represent the entire state or the entire country, not just Republicans or not just Democrats or not just the poor or not just the rich, you have to really represent everybody. No matter who contributes money, when you win, you represent everyone.
David Shuster
Benjamin Netanyahu is no Winston Churchill. Whatever else he, is he’s not a Winston Churchill. He basically violated the great rule, which is it’s better to mislead the people and to lose an election than to mislead the people and win an election.
Mark Shields
You play to win the game.
Herman Edwards
Business is a sport and I want to win. I want to kick your ass. I may not win every game. But I certainly am going to try.
Mark Cuban
On one thing professionals and amateurs agree: mothers can’t win.
Margaret Drabble
Success is not a harbor but a voyage with its own perils to the spirit … The lesson that most of us on this voyage never learn, but can never quite forget, is that to win is sometimes to lose.
Richard M. Nixon
There are faults which show heart and win hearts, while the virtue in which there is no love, repels.
John Lancaster Spalding
My advice is: 1. Be judicious in the use of military force. 2. When military force is required, use overwhelming force. 3. Do not micromanage military leaders. 4. Ensure your battle plans will win the conflict and win the peace.
Steve Stivers
I never got into MMA to be famous, I got into it to compete and pursue athletic aspirations. They were my pure intentions. I came from a true sport, an Olympic background, winning multiple national, international and Olympic medals. So I entered MMA as a sport.
Matt Lindland
Nobody ever wins the National Open. Somebody loses it.
Bobby Jones
One can win the attention and time and cooperation of even the most sought-after people by becoming genuinely interested in them.
Dale Carnegie
Winning is always fun, but the car is more important.
Teemu Selanne
I don’t think that the Pulitzer should be given the way it is. I think the competition should be anonymous. I think completely different people would win it if the names were taken off because a lot of it is done on relationships and names.
John Corigliano
When you are at the Olympic Games, it comes down to a ten thousandth of a hair between making the next round or winning a race or getting second or third.
Apolo Ohno
There are many victories worse than a defeat.
George Eliot
Every win, regardless a good or bad one, gives you more confidence.
Mike Tyson
Lifting the Stanley Cup for the first time. There’s nothing like it. It’s the greatest story. In my era, they used to say you couldn’t be a superstar without winning one. I remember thinking when I lifted it: “Now they can’t say that about me.”
Wayne Gretzky
It’s a reality here. We’re a team that at this time of the season, with teams trying to get to the playoffs, it’s going to be difficult to win.
Nate McMillan
General Wesley Clark commented on Gore endorsing Howard Dean. He said endorsements don’t win elections. Hey, in this country, votes don’t even win elections.
Jay Leno
My style is to keep folks in place who are good managers and want to win.
Tom Hicks
Getting the nomination is like gravy. Winning would be like whatever is better than gravy.
Billy Bob Thornton
You can’t go on winning all the time.
Jahangir Khan
And it doesn’t matter to me whether you’re running a coffee shop or you’re an intellectual or you’re in business or flying hot air balloons. People who can spread ideas, regardless of what those ideas are, win. But consumers, they got way more choices than they used to and way less time.
Seth Godin
What I say is, don’t go playing unless you can win. Only sit down to chess with idiots, only kick a dog what’s dead already, and don’t love a lady unless she loves you first.
N.D. Wilson
We have no target for the number of medals we hope to win in 2012 – yet. But we want every kid in the country to have the chance to have the best opportunities.
Tessa Jowell
In a tournament, even though there are team scores, it’s calculated and it’s a lot more individual. There is more honor to say you’re not just better than the opposing schools’ wrestler, you’re the best wrestler in your weight class. Plus there are lot more awards to win in a tournament.
Bill Vaughan
They never predict anything fun,” Granuaile answered. “Just once I’d like to hear a prophet tell someone, ‘Thou shalt win a bitchin’ Camaro on a game show.
Kevin Hearne
I will do my best, and I promise I will give this guy a fight, and I have to win this fight.
Manny Pacquiao
We have to change our whole way, our health care system is a disaster. It’s going to implode in 2017, just like you’re sitting there. It doesn’t work. Nothing works in our country. If I’m elected president, we will win again.
Donald Trump
In the Christian combat, not the striker, as in the Olympic contests, but he who is struck, wins the crown. This is the law in the celestial theatre, where the Angels are the spectators.
Saint John Chrysostom
You become a great composer when you win a Pulitzer. But I think that now it’s a completely meaningless award.
John Corigliano
The fact that Slammin’ Sammy couldn’t win the Open made it all the more valuable for the players that did win. Gave it a special quality. I’d say a part of the sheen on that trophy comes from my sweat.
Sam Snead
Haven’t you ever played Uno?… Sometimes you have to lose all your cards to win.
Brad Meltzer
If we win, we’ll make history, and I’ll serve you on the Agriculture Committee.
George Nethercutt
The reason we are at the ballpark is to win that day’s game, and we don’t need to be concerned with anything else during the time we are in uniform. It makes things a lot simpler, a lot easier.
Todd Helton
The joy of winning is not as dramatic as the losses were, because I expected us to win
Jack Youngblood
We once went 13 games without winning. There’s always pressure here. Winning is always important here. How do you handle yourself and compose yourself is important.
(on Manchester United)
Alex Ferguson
I just try to win the match by fighting for every point, and running down every ball.
Rafael Nadal
Sometimes the only way you can win is to stay out of the game.
Ashleigh Brilliant
There are few husbands whom the wife cannot win in the long run, by patience and love.
Margaret of Valois
You think you’re winning, but it’s hard to say sometimes.
Dan Fogelberg
There are only two people running [Donald trump and Hillary Clinton] – you have to pick one of two people, and it’s not like I said Mickey Mouse was going to win. This is why, like you said about Brexit, inside of London I don’t think they saw what was going on.
Ken Moelis
The contest is not between us and them, but between good and evil, and if those who would fight evil adopt the ways of evil, evil wins.
Thomas Jefferson
This 20th win means more to me than the perfect game in 1968.
Catfish Hunter
If at war, understand what it takes to win: Set a goal, define victory and fully support the effort. Leave no doubt that you respect the troops and appreciate their service.
Brad Wenstrup
Corr stood here,” Sean says wonderingly. “I would’ve died. He didn’t have to stay.” For a moment, I see that it doesn’t matter that he didn’t win. The fact of Corr’s loyalty is a bigger thing than the ownership of him.
Maggie Stiefvater
Winning is the first priority. Individual development is important, but if each guy gets better, the team gets better
Lawrence Frank
Isn’t it wonderful how dogs can win friends and influence people without ever reading a book.
Charles E. McKenzie
Winning leaders are almost always motivated when the chips are down.
Zig Ziglar
If Britain wins wholly, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and perhaps even Bolshevik Russia will disappear.
Mahatma Gandhi
Suckers try to win arguments, nonsuckers try to win.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
If I don’t win the match I at least want to improve my game.
Rosamund Pike
(UGO, about Crank) I see the addiction to video games because you want to win them and it’s just hard enough so you’d want to keep playing it over and over to try to figure it out. I definitely feel the movie is like a game at times but I’m not a huge videogame lover.
Amy Smart
Winning is the best deodorant.
Jason Kidd
Naturally the U.S. trails in gold medals because every time we win one, we hand it over to the Chinese to pay off our debt.
Stephen Colbert
Freshman want to play. Sophomores want to start. Juniors want to score. Seniors want to win
John Beilein
The difference between winning nineteen games and winning twenty for a pitcher is bigger than anyone out of baseball realizes. It’s the same for hitters – someone who hits .300 looks back on the guy who batted .295 and says ‘tough luck buddy.
Warren Spahn
Frank is capable of any kind of behavior to win.
Don Burr
No candidate can win a presidential race advocating gay marriage and opposing the military action in Iraq.
Dick Morris
I would rather miss the mark acting well than win the day acting basely.
Women do not win formula one races, because they simply are not strong enough to resist the G-forces. In the boardroom, it is different. I believe women are better able to marshal their thoughts than men and because they are less egotistical they make fewer assumptions.
Henry Ford
Before seeing ‘The Pride of the Yankees,’ you may or may not know that the Yankees referred to are the ones who win the World Series each year. After seeing it you will find that the reference is indirect.
Manny Farber
Perhaps that dawn will come from this horizon, from the East where the sun rises. A day will come when unvanquished Man will retrace his path of conquest, despite all barriers, to win back his lost human heritage.
Rabindranath Tagore
You never argued with my mother. You couldn’t win.
Vidal Sassoon
When you lie about your age, the terrorists win.
Carol Leifer

Steve Blank
We can never give up the belief that the good guys always win. And that we are the good guys.
Faith Popcorn
I don’t know one of my friends who is considered a conservative who has not had to go back and thoroughly think through everything. You do a lot of soul-searching – ’cause we are not going to win any popularity contests.
Clarence Thomas
This will be their 19th consecutive game without a win unless they can get an equaliser.
Alan Green
The only future Barack Obama is trying to win is his own re-election.
Sarah Palin
Never play with the feelings of others, because you may win the game but the risk is that you will surely lose the person for life time
William Shakespeare
It’s bizarre, a punch in the face hurts less when you win than when you lose.
Georges St-Pierre
Life is too precious to be a spectator sport. We are no longer merely fans, rooting for the winning team. We are the team. We are the grown-ups. Whatever you believe is true, now is the time to give your respectful, inquisitive, and compassionate self to it.
Vicki Robin
There will always be people for and against you, and its pointless wasting time trying to win over some of the people who are against you. Spend time with people who are for you. Those realtionships are worth it.
Cathy Hopkins
It was the last game of the year and you were supposed to commit suicide or something if old Pencey didn’t win.
J. D. Salinger
I ask not for any crown But that which all may win; Nor try to conquer any world Except the one within.
Louisa May Alcott
Let’s say [Donald] Trump wins. Is Congress going to let him build a wall on the Mexican border? I don’t think so.
Gary Shilling
It’s not about being a head coach, I’d rather be a DC at Auburn and win championships.
Will Muschamp
Don’t let them win. Don’t let them beat you. Don’t let them steal your magic.
I always won in my imagination. I always hit the game-winning shot, or I hit the free throw. Or if I missed, there was a lane violation, and I was given another one.
Mike Krzyzewski
When Labour loses we do one of three things. We decide we didn’t win because we weren’t leftwing enough: fantasy. We decide we can avoid the really tough decisions because they are too uncomfortable: a fudge. Or we decide that winning is too important.
Liz Kendall
Winning is important, but survival is even more important. If you don’t survive, you don’t get to fight the next battle.
Donald Trump
A lot of nerds aren’t aware they’re nerds. A geek has thrown his hands up to the universe and gone, ‘I speak Klingon – who am I fooling? You win! I’m just gonna openly like what I like.’ Geeks tend to be a little happier with themselves.
Patton Oswalt
I would rather try a shot to win than play safe and finish second.
Phil Mickelson
What we’ve been trying to do is difficult. You know it’s difficult to win one, to win two. Madness to win three. But to try and come back to win it again should be impossible really.
Brian Cody
The poet is he who fights on the passionate
Side and whoever loses he wins; when he
Is defeated it is hard to say who wins.
Allen Tate
When Donald Trump won the election because when I came into the show, I said, I think this guy can win. This was when he first came down that escalator. He gave his first speech.
Trevor Noah
I only see what I want to see. Winners see winning, Losers see losing. You are what you think you are.
Moe Norman
There’s really no way to break that chain – other than winning the lottery. There’s no realistic way to end generational poverty other than to actually educate people so that they can get the jobs, so that people can be self-sufficient. And to be self-sufficient around careers – not just jobs, but careers.
Soledad O’Brien
Sometimes being a leader isn’t about winning. Sometimes it’s about doing what’s right, instead of what’s powerful.
James Patterson
No matter what system you live under, there is no escaping the law that it’s always the strongest, the cruellest, the least generous who win.
Oriana Fallaci
So often, the best way to figure out who has a shot at winning is by eliminating those that you’re pretty sure don’t.
Jeff Probst
I was that overachieving, annoying kid who was always trying to win some contest or win the role. I look back on it now and I’m like, “Chill, man.” Calm down.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
It’s not in the dreaming, it’s in the doing.
Mark Cuban
The next best thing to a winning day at the track is a losing day.

John C. Maxwell
Jack Roush is the only guy that could keep Matt Kenseth from winning races.
Kyle Petty
I don’t trade for excitement; I trade to win
Larry Hite
It’s going to be tough (winning the MVP Award). I’m not really considered a media darling.
Albert Belle
To be born again,’ sang Gibreal Farishta tumbling from the heaveans, ‘first you have to die. Ho ji! Ho ji! To land upon the bosomy earth, first one needs to fly Tat-taa! Takatun! How to ever smile again, if first you won’t cry? How to win the darling’s love mister, without a sigh?
Salman Rushdie
When I came to New York in 1978, I was a full-time school teacher and track runner, and determined to retire from competitive running. But winning the New York City Marathon kept me running for another decade.
Grete Waitz
…it is impossible for a genuine people’s revolution in any country to win victory without various forms of help from the international revolutionary forces.
Mao Zedong
Kids win this’n’that every day. Thousands of them. One out of a hundred fights professionally. One out of a thousand’s worth watchin’, one out of a million’s worth coffee and doughnuts.
Abraham Polonsky
What we really are trying to do day to day now is to wake up every day and think about more activist behavior – what we can do to move the needle on the climate crisis, whether it is calling legislators or trying to win the conversation with someone who might not see the issues the way do.
Jon Shenk
A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up. It’s all a matter of pride.
Nancy Lopez
My tastes in all things lean towards the arty and boring. I like sports documentaries about Scrabble players, bands that play quiet, unassuming music, and TV shows that win awards. In that way, I am an elitist snob. And proud of it.
Michael Ian Black
I want to win at everything. I usually don’t like things that I’m not good at, but it doesn’t mean I don’t want to win at them.
Danica Patrick
It’s not over until you win
Les Brown
I’d rather make the cut in the Crosby than win another Oscar.
Jack Lemmon
I don’t promote giving up. I promote fighting and winning.
Nicki Minaj
What I would like to vote for is a candidate that is socially liberal, a fiscal conservative, broadly libertarian with a small l but sensible and pragmatic and with a chance of winning. Thats more or less the empty set.
Tyler Cowen
It’s easy for me to work with other girls because I’m a tomboy and I don’t want the guy, your boyfriend – I’m not interested in looking better than you, so don’t worry. Fail or win, whatever it is, I need to go do stuff.
Michelle Rodriguez
Tennis is mostly mental. You win or lose the match before you even go out there.
Venus Williams
Remember the importance of small actions. They’re the building blocks in the architecture of your life, the quiet victories you win for yourself each day.
Diane Dreher
I’m always happy. I like to have fun. During the game, I don’t like showing my emotions, though. I’m all about winning the game. I take a lot of responsibility for that.
Jorge Posada
I can’t tell you how many life lessons I’ve learned through bowling. Time management, finding balance in life, how to lose, how to win, how to bowl as a team and deal with people. How to do something I love to do and inspire other people.
Diandra Asbaty
My closest friends from Israel make fun of me for becoming an American, and my American friends make fun of how Israeli I am… I can’t win.
Alona Tal
No Republican has ever been elected president of the United States without winning Ohio.
Wolf Blitzer
Pheu Thai has to find prominent party leaders that can solve the problems of the country now. If we can find those types of people, then we can win. There are many good people in Thailand but we have to recruit them.
Thaksin Shinawatra
I don’t think you have to make this choice about being on one side or the other side. My feeling is that when we are committed to growing the economy and making sure that our public employees have a place at the table through collective bargaining, everyone wins.
Mary Burke
I want to have fun. It’s a beautiful life. You learn, you win, you lose, but you get up.
Football players win football games.
Chuck Knox
We all have great inner power. The power is self-faith. There’s really an attitude to winning. You have to see yourself winning before you win. And you have to be hungry. You have to want to conquer.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
If I win, I attract other good players and by doing that I win more games.
Tony DiCicco
We got anxious at the end of the weekend in our urgency to try to score the winning goal. Ended up playing far too many long balls forward. That style of play doesn’t suit Manchester United. We must continue to play football and enjoy the game. If we do that, eventually things will come right for us.
Alex Ferguson
I don’t know if it’s ever OK for someone to be selfish. Perhaps there’s a time and place to be self-centered, but I think selfish never wins the race.
Jessica Capshaw
I’d rather lose a game trying to win it, than lose it trying not to get beat
Brendan Rodgers
When I’m winning, winning, winning with a certain way why would I mess with that? When I realised there was lot to be gained from failing in some people’s eyes, it made it all the more interesting!
Bob Mould
Life is a difficult game. You can win it only by retaining your birthright to be a person.
Abdul Kalam
Some pitchers want to be known as the fastest throwers that ever lived. Some want to win 30 games in one season. Some want to pitch a no-hitter. All I want to do is the best I can, day after day. In other words, I want to prove I am the best.
Tom Seaver
We cannot win the weak by sharing our wealth with them. They feel our generosity as oppression.
Eric Hoffer
The only reason a warrior is alive is to fight, and the only reason a warrior fights is to win
Miyamoto Musashi
We had Jesse Ventura in Minnesota win the governorship, nobody thought he was going to win. I’m telling you, stranger things have happened.
Keith Ellison
Average investors can become experts in their own field and can pick winning stocks as effectively as Wall Street professionals by doing just a little research.
Peter Lynch
In New York, the Mets are winning the World Series in 1969; that was pretty big, but I would say the moon landing was right up there with the Mets in the World Series. So it made a, a big impression on me as a little kid.
Michael J. Massimino
The worst thing that can happen to a man who gambles is to win
Charles Spurgeon
Love is letting him win even though you know you could slaughter him.
Charles M. Schulz
There will be a time when everyone on the team is going to contribute to winning a pennant.
Joe Torre
Winning is the obvious goal, but it’s not easy. There are so many good drivers and every week is different. I want to win badly, but I understand that it’s going to take hard work. In the meantime I’ll continue to set obtainable goals and do my best both on and off the racetrack.
Danica Patrick
When I was young and didn’t have money, I liked gambling because winning and losing was fun for the rush of it.
Carlos Mencia
I’ve been lucky enough to win an Oscar, write a best-seller – my other dream would be to have a painting in the Louvre. The only way that’s going to happen is if I paint a dirty one on the wall of the gentlemen’s lavatory.
David Niven
If world problems feel too big to tackle, think small. Step by step. Small wins build confidence, lead the way to change.
Rosabeth Moss Kanter
Shoot a few scenes out of focus. I want to win the foreign film award.
Billy Wilder
Winning is the most important. Everything is consequence of that.
Ayrton Senna
Every issue, the characters and I duke it out. They usually win.
Brian K. Vaughan

Tony Robbins
If you go into a battle, it’s better to win the first time.
George S. Patton
Bigot: A person who wins an argument with a liberal.
Rush Limbaugh
Those who hate or disrespect Sir Alex Ferguson , its only because he snatched away their dreams of winning.
Eric Cantona
The e-mails show the reporters collaborate and conspire directly with the [Hillary] Clinton campaign on helping her win the election all over.
Donald Trump
A man sometimes wins an argument, but a woman always wins a silence.
Robert Breault
Even when people didn’t think I was the real champion, I got called out anyway. So now when you get a good win the first person people think of is me. I guess they thought it would be easy, but nothing comes easy.
Danny Garcia
Getting a role in Harry Potter was like winning the lottery. But no one deserves an acting job.
Jessie Cave
The media theme was, “June is when you win the presidency,” because that’s what they thought Hillary [Clinton] was doing. Hillary was running ads condemning [Donald] Trump, characterizing Trump, marginalizing Trump.
Rush Limbaugh
The Indians are still winning the battle against the white men, but sooner or later, the white guy will win.
Chris Matthews
We play because we love the game, we love each other, and we love to win.
Mia Hamm
No, the only things which do not bother me are the elements. I can overcome them without a fight. All one has to do to get the best of the elements is to stand pat and one will win.
William Howard Taft
I’m trying as hard as I possibly can each and every day to get my life better and better and stronger. And if I win championships along the way, so be it.
Tiger Woods
You learn more from losing than winning. You learn how to keep going.
Morgan Wootten
It’s certainly not a nice thing that [Hillary Clinton] is done. It’s hundreds of millions of ads. And the only gratifying thing is, I saw the polls come in today, and with all of that money $200 million is spent, and I’m either winning or tied, and I’ve spent practically nothing.
Donald Trump
So many people are insanely busy nowadays, and it’s easy to say, ‘Ah, I’ll workout tomorrow.’ But you have to set aside a time and stick to that schedule.
Derek Jeter
Personally, I would like to face Barcelona in every game because it gives you so much motivation and you learn a lot from it. Pep Guardiola is a really important person in the history of their club. He has a winning mentality and that is fundamental.
David Trezeguet
I think that it’s a myth that there’s one job that makes your whole career, unless you’re winning an Oscar. But even that doesn’t work for some people.
Aya Cash
There’s no question that many factors contribute to voters’ perceptions about debates and who wins and who loses.
Mark McKinnon
The two pillars of winning the presidency are being a strong leader and being someone who understands us and our problems.
Nicolle Wallace
I don’t think drugs should be illegal. I’m not an advocate of everybody running out and using drugs, but I think the drug wars are not working, there’s millions and millions of dollars being spent on the drug war that we’re never going to win.
Sonny Barger
Remember, always give your best. Never get discouraged. Never be petty. Always remember, others may hate you. But those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.
Richard M. Nixon
If all the world be worth thy winning. / Think, oh think it worth enjoying: / Lovely ThaГЇs sits beside thee, / Take the good the gods provide thee.
John Dryden
Golf gives no margin: either you win or you fail. You cannot hedge; you cannot bluff; you cannot give a stop order. One chance is given you, and you hit or miss. There is nothing more rigid in life. And it is this ultra and extreme rigidity that makes golf so intensely interesting.
Arnold Haultain
I want my team to be more detached from the wins and losses and be more focused on doing the little things well. When you focus on getting the win, it can suffocate you, especially during the playoffs when the pressure gets thick.
Sue Enquist
I always support Argentina. I watched a lot of the European Championships but wasn’t supporting one team. I knew some players in a few of the teams and was just seeing how they played. It was nice for Ronaldo to win with Portugal.
Usain Bolt
We should just get somebody from the left and the right and they should all throw bumper stickers at each other and the first one to cover the other one wins.
David Cross
Real life’s nasty. It’s cruel. It doesn’t care about heroes and happy endings and the way things should be. In real life, bad things happen. People die. Fights are lost. Evil often wins.
Darren Shan
Winning is not the most important thing; it’s everything.
Vince Lombardi
It kills me to lose. If I’m a troublemaker, and I don’t think that my temper makes me one, then it’s because I can’t stand losing. That’s the way I am about winning, all I ever wanted to do was finish first.
Jackie Robinson
You don’t need to win every medal to be successful.
Jason Fried
Yes, winning the gold medal was undoubtedly the biggest day of my career – mostly because I won the way I had prepared to run it. It was a totally satisfying experience.
Frank Shorter
I’ve never seen impeccable logic be sufficient to win both the heart and the mind.
Scott D. Anthony
The truth is that for those 86 long years when the Red Sox went without a World Series win, fans were not only in a recession, but trapped in a longstanding, deeply entrenched sports depression.
Julianna Baggott
Trust me I never lose. Either I win or learn from it
Tupac Shakur
You can choose, don’t confuse, win or lose, it’s up to you.
Ozzy Osbourne
I have encountered in this world riff-raff and good people. I lose. I win. I defend myself when I am attacked. I take when someone has taken from me. But I beg you to believe me; I have never done an act of espionage against France. Never. Never.
Mata Hari
Whenever there is a conflict between precept and example, the latter wins because deeds speak louder than our words.
Sergey Kirov
You win any which way you can. You do what you have to do to get by. That’s the way it works in any job.
Greg Rusedski
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
Bill Tilden
My goal is to win the next game one possession at a time. That’s it. I don’t have any other goals
Brad Stevens
That’s what I hope to put out onto the pitch – a team that knows how to win matches.
Steve Clarke
To go to war, you must always think of, can you win?
John Dingell
Sometimes I say to myself, ‘Oh, I wish I could win a Tony Award’, although I’m not that bothered.
David Sedaris
If you think you can win, you can win. Faith is necessary to victory.
William Hazlitt
At the moment, the extremists have significant financial popular and theological backing in the Middle East. And that is an enduring phenomenon. And it’s one that is going to require a long, ideological war to win.
Chuck Todd
Try novelties for salesman’s bait, For novelty wins everyone.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
It’s just how it is sometimes. Things hurt, and they hurt for a long time. You have to fight back, or it wins.
Robin Benway
Thus far the chief purpose of our military establishment has been to win wars. From now on its chief purpose must be to avert them. It can have almost no other useful purpose.
Bernard Brodie
Life is like the baseball season, where even the best team loses at least a third of its games, and even the worst team has its days of brilliance. The goal is not to win every game but to win more than you lose, and if you do that often enough, in the end you may find you have won it all.
Harold S. Kushner
A battle that you win cancels all your mistakes.
Niccolo Machiavelli
The only thing that’s in my control is to win ballgames and God is always taking care of me.
Dusty Baker
People want a cop-out, listen I’m a realist and I talk about motivation, talk about all the things it takes to be greater or are important to win and people want to use excuses all the time.
Mike Ditka
Winning can be addictive
Nora Roberts
I have short goals – to get better every day, to help my teammates every day – but my only ultimate goal is to win an NBA championship. It’s all that matters. I dream about it. I dream about it all the time, how it would look, how it would feel. It would be so amazing.
LeBron James
You can’t turn the ball over and expect to win.
Aaron Rodgers
A successful competition for me is always going out there and putting 100 percent into whatever I’m doing. It’s not always winning. People, I think, mistake that it’s just winning. Sometimes it could be, but for me, it’s hitting the best sets I can, gaining confidence, and having a good time and having fun.
Simone Biles
I keep thinking the bad guys will win in the end and take it all away, but somehow it all seems to keep working.
Tom Scharpling
British diplomats who worked in Iran during the 1980 hostage crisis are deeply upset by Ben Affleck’s Oscar-winning film ‘Argo,’ which suggests they refused shelter to the group who managed to get out of the U.S. embassy.
Simon Hoggart
He’s most likely robbing the bank as a paycheck on the world for winning the ugliness prize at his local fete three years running.
Markus Zusak
My best advice: win little battles. Get in the habit of winning, of shipping, of having customers that can’t live without you. Once you’ve demonstrated you know how to do the art, then go after the windmills.
Seth Godin
Those who know how to win are much more numerous than those who know how to make proper use of their victories.
I have noticed in every campaign that I have fought-that there is a key segment of time, somewhere between 13 and 15 minutes in which the battle is won or lost. I focus on that segment of time, and I win.
Napoleon Bonaparte
When you win and you don’t have anyone to share it with, why win? You have someone to share it with you.
Joe Greene
I love what I do. I want to continue winning medals.
Mo Farah
When you step into that boat you have made a silent commitment to your team that you will do everything in your power to help them win.
Mary Whipple
Who wins a… competition [between two traits] is massively context sensitive.
Jerry Fodor
Funny, for all surveillance, Osama bin Laden is still freeВ—and we’re not. Guess who’s winning the “war on terror?
Cory Doctorow
If you leave, we lose and our pasts win.
Sylvia Day
There’s nothing new. I think that’s the weird thing for me. Over the last couple of months, the keep-fit shows, and then at the end of it you get to lose weight and one of you is going to win a million dollars – that’s not real. In many ways, even 10 years ago that wouldn’t have worked.
Gordon Ramsay
Winning is based to a certain extent upon personal power. If you have enough personal power you tend to win. If you don’t, you tend to lose.
Frederick Lenz
To freeze time, to hold on to youth, this business makes no sense.
It’s always time that wins in the end.
Robert Doisneau
Wars happen because the ones who start them think they can win.
Margaret Atwood
It’s very, very special for me. This is where I’ve grown up, it’s my home, and winning the Monaco Grand Prix is the highlight of any racing driver’s career and for me a childhood dream. It being my home makes it all the more special, unbelievable.
Nico Rosberg
The only way to shut people up is just by winning and just playing basketball.
Dwight Howard
We are the farmers of the future. If we desire all the gifts of God, if we seek to win the Golden Crown, we can’t just sit back and watch. We have to make it happen.
Chris Heimerdinger
Words move, turning over like tumbling clowns; like certain books and like fleas, they possess activity. All men equally have the right to say, ‘This word shall bear this meaning,’ and see if they can get it across. It is a sporting game, which all can play, only all cannot win.
Rose Macaulay
Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself.
Bear Bryant
There is very much in the world that is bad. But usually the attempt to defeat evil engenders more evil. I advise you to do good; that is the only way to win the victory.
Sergei Lukyanenko
The line between winning and losing is very thin, and wins give you prestige, stability, and continuity.
Diego Godin
It never really crossed my mind that I was ever going to win a major. I always said that if you win a major, that’s fine. If you don’t, you tried your best.
Vijay Singh
I had ordered long legs, but they never arrived. My eyes are weird too, one is gray and the other is green. I have a crooked smile and my nose looks like a ski slope. No, I would not win a Miss contest.
Jane Seymour
I don’t believe in praying to win.
John Wooden
When millions of people stand up and fight…they win.
Bernie Sanders
The difference in this town – here in Washington – on the war is not between Democrats and Republicans; it’s between people who believe essentially we’ve already lost in Iraq and it’s time to get out – and most of the rest of us.
Joe Lieberman
I`m honored to have the greatest temperament that anybody has, because we know how to win.
Donald Trump
You win a race, the next race it’s a question mark. Are you still the best or not? That’s what is funny. But that’s what is interesting. And that’s what is challenging. You have to prove yourself every time.
Michael Schumacher
Yes, believe me I am black and blue. Plus I just finished a Seth MacFarlane movie called Ted and I can’t believe the cast I got to work with there [Mila Kunis, Mark Wahlberg]. I feel like I am winning some kind of contest to trick people into working with me.
Joel McHale
Learning to celebrate success is a key component of learning how to win in the market.
Douglas Conant
Your power play can win you games, and your penalty killers can save you games.
Emile Francis
A man who cannot win fame in big own age will have a very small chance of winning it from posterity. True, there are some half-dozen exceptions to this truth among millions of myriads that attest it; but what man of common sense would invest any large amount of hope in so unpromising a lottery?
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Clean hearts and healthful food, exercise, early sleep and fresh air, wholesome recreation and meditation combined with optimism that comes from fighting for the right and knowing you’ll eventually win for keeps – this is the tonic every true Christian patriot needs and deserves.
Ezra Taft Benson
Lose this battle so we can win the war.
My conviction is that those fights need to be fought right now and can be won. And if in fact we have finite political capital, energy, resources, we need to win those fights.
Barack Obama
All of the Mets’ road wins against Los Angeles this year have been at Dodger Stadium.
Ralph Kiner
If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose, then I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written.
Eoin Colfer
It’s funny how the whole team gets quiet when you’re about to win a Daytona 500.
Joey Logano
The 2014 elections are not about winning or losing, but of ensuring a bright future for India. It is about sowing the seeds for a ‘Bhavya’ and a ‘Divya Bharat’.
Narendra Modi
I never knew I’d be in a musical, let alone win an award for one.
Nicole Kidman
Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.
Donald Trump
I think most people know inherently that good wins.
Ginnifer Goodwin
One characteristic of winners is they always look upon themselves as a do it yourself project.
Denis Waitley
I have a feeling we are going to be world champions, I can’t really explain why. Brazil are probably the best team in the world in terms of individual players. But the team with the most gifted players do not always win.
Oliver Kahn
One of the reasons they [the Japanese] have bad eyesight is probably these microscopic characters [furigana] which have many lines and strokes to them.& We wonder why they went mad and bombed Pearl Harbor when they knew they couldn’t win. That [the Japanese language] would be a reason.
L. Ron Hubbard
In every election in American history both parties have their cliches. The party that has the cliches that ring true wins.
Newt Gingrich
You win some, you lose some, and your losses are never made up to you. She will simply have to do without; like it or not, she must face her losses and her helplessness to undo them.
Sheldon B. Kopp
Onstage I’m always different than offstage. I can be very friendly offstage, but onstage I will pull one trick after another on my competition to wipe him out, you know-because it’s my living and I have to win. Franco is my best friend, but I will do as much as I can to make him look bad and make me look good.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
The latest national polls show a tightening in the race to the White House, especially in key states like Ohio and Florida. But when it comes down to it, winning in November [2016] will depend on which candidate has a viable path to 270 electoral votes.
Gwen Ifill
When you win, don’t swagger. When you lose, don’t sulk.
Rick Warren
How can a guy win a game if you don’t give him any runs?
Bo Belinsky
It is not a gain that guilt should be wholly forgotten. On the contrary, it is loss and perdition. But it is a gain to win an inner intensity of heart through a deeper and deeper inner sorrowing over guilt.
Soren Kierkegaard
Winning is not a secret that belongs to a very few, winning is something that we can learn by studying ourselves, studying the environment and making ourselves ready for any challenge that is in front of us.
Garry Kasparov
You will win with either color if you are the better player, but it takes longer with Black.
Isaac Kashdan
When you play Bobby, it is not a question if you win or lose. It is a question if you survive.
Boris Spassky
Race cars are neither beautiful nor ugly. They become beautiful when they win.
Enzo Ferrari
You’re gonna lose some ball games and you’re gonna win some ball games and that’s about it.
Sparky Anderson
There’s my pessimism. Because I didn’t know yet that type of film is always going to become more extinct, that there won’t be anymore. Because there will always be more films that win five Oscars like Terms of Endearment.
Sergio Leone
I still wake up every day, so I’m winning.
John Daly
You can’t win without the ball.
Red Auerbach
Whatever I do, I love to win. I don’t care if it’s tennis or ping pong, I’ll kill myself to win it.
Andy Pettitte
Every physicist knows that things connect with each other. To isolate things is not the way the universe works – winning best actor is arbitrary.
Alan Arkin
We’re saying to anyone who dares to attack us, Do not do it, you couldn’t win, the result would be devastating! I think you’re saying the same.
Margaret Thatcher
Winning isn’t everything, but wanting it is.
Arnold Palmer
You run the race to win, that’s for sure.
Sarah Palin
What I want out of tennis is not necessarily just winning.
Jennifer Capriati
When we lose, I eat. When we win, I eat. I also eat when we’re rained out.
Tommy Lasorda
I do feel a kinship for sure. I admire those guys who’ve won hat-tricks like Andy, and obviously Kelly who’s won seven, that’s amazing stuff. I think the average surfer thinks it’s amazing. The guys who win our championships, they’re so amazing.
Mark Occhilupo
The way I look at it, love does not necessarily make for a happy ending any more than winning does. What makes for a happy ending is what Addie said all along: freedom. The freedom to be who you are without anybody calling you names. —Bobby Goodspeed
James Howe
Ben Roethlisberger is a proven winner in athletic competition. But the measure of a true leader is how they conduct themselves 24/7, not just during a winning touchdown drive or a goal-line stance. Leadership isn’t something that gets switched off because the game clock expires.
Jackson Katz
What is the single most important quality in a tennis champion? I would have to say desire, staying in there and winning matches when you are not playing that well.
John McEnroe
I’d like to think, if I was ever in a fight, I’d win, although I’d probably run in the opposite direction.
Rachel Nichols
In order to win, you must play your best golf when you need it most, and play your sloppy stuff when you can afford it. I shall not attempt to explain how you achieve this happy timing.
Bobby Jones
Win or lose, I’ve been fortunate to be able to pitch deep enough into games to get decisions.
Dontrelle Willis
There’s been a lot of talk of me being a one-man show but that’s simply not the case. We win games when I score 40 points and we’ve won when I score 10.
Kobe Bryant
My own heroes are the dreamers, those men and women who tried to make the world a better place than when they found it, whether in small ways or great ones. Some succeeded, some failed, most had mixed results… but it is the effort that’s heroic, as I see it. Win or lose, I admire those who fight the good fight.
George R. R. Martin
It’s not whether the glass is half empty or half full, it’s who is pouring the water. The key in business and success at any endeavor is doing your best to control your destiny. You can’t always do it, but you have to take every opportunity you can to be as prepared as-and ahead of-the competition as you possibly can be.
Mark Cuban
Winning is not everything, but wanting to win is.
Vince Lombardi
Sometimes the only way to win is to die trying.
Joe Jonas
By turning negatives into positives, losing into a journey to winning, I have been able to overcome the odds that were against me into motivation for my success.
Bobby Bones
I’m a winner, I play to win, I want to make good things go on around me.
David Ortiz
Outrageous generosity is a character quality of people who win with money.
Dave Ramsey
If you want to be a well-paid copywriter, please your client. If you want to be an award-winning copywriter, please yourself. If you want to be a great copywriter, please your reader.
Steve Hayden
Passion, manners, and 80 ounces of beer will win the heart of any woman. And if it doesn’t, you’ll be too hammered to remember.
Christopher Titus
In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time.
Robert Collier
Winning doesn’t really matter as long as you win
Vinnie Jones
Whoever aspires to win the grace of God should cultivate at the outset the quality of Kshama (Forgiveness).
Sathya Sai Baba
I’ ve won awards. And they didn’t make me feel bad winning them. They made me feel pretty good. But it also did not make me feel bad NOT winning the Academy Award.
Al Pacino
It doesn’t matter how many times you win an award, it is always very special.
Zinedine Zidane
I’d like to win a Booker Prize for writing. A Nobel Peace Prize for my work in peace… and I think that’ll probably do.
Billy Boyd
You win people’s hearts by helping them grow personally.
John C. Maxwell
I focus on one thing and one thing only – that’s trying to win as many championships as I can.
Kobe Bryant
(American swimmer, 1972 Summer Olympics, on winning seven gold medals Inspirational)
I swam my brains out.
Mark Spitz
I hate the iPhone. I love the BlackBerry – BlackBerry wins in my opinion. The iPhone is a toy.
Brett Ratner
The fact that we’re in the playoffs doesn’t mean anything to us, to be honest with you. Hopefully, we can accomplish our goal of going into the playoffs on a winning note.
Michael Strahan
We didn’t win a Super Bowl together, and that’s something I’ll always regret – not knowing what that feels like. But you and I have won more games together than any quarterback and coach combination in the history of the NFL.
Dan Marino
If that were a winning argument, Donald Trump could get anybody off the bench on his cases by just something deeply offensive based on their background.
Deborah Rhode
I think God rarely gives to one man, or one set of men, more than one great moral victory to win.
Lucy Stone
I have had a truly great life in business, but now my sole and exclusive mission is to go to work for our country, to go to work for you. It’s time to deliver a victory for the American people. We don’t win anymore, but we are going to start winning again.
Donald Trump
The average American is for the underdog, but only on the condition that he has a chance to win.
Bill Vaughan
It is not enough to win a war; it is more important to organize the peace.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve dreamt about winning the Brazilian league, and I still dream about it now. I am doing everything I possibly can to make my dream come true.
Live win, dare fail.
James Hetfield
If you’re reading something from a Nobel Prize-winning physicist next to some guy in his underwear writing in his basement, or his mom’s basement, on text, it looks like it’s equally plausible.
Barack Obama
No Republican could expect to win the GOP nod after betraying his party’s rank and file.
Grover Norquist
They say some of my stars drink whiskey, but I have found that ones who drink milkshakes don’t win many ball games.
Casey Stengel
For me, baseball is about, again, the team winning.
Eddie Murray
Parts win prizes, not actors.
Alan Rickman
Marco Rubio announced he’s running for president. Fun fact: Marco Rubio’s wife is a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader. In other words, she knows how to generate fake enthusiasm for someone who’s not going to win.
Conan O’Brien
Fight all your battles on your knees and you win every time.
Charles Stanley
There is no other way to start the season than to win the Daytona 500.
Jimmie Johnson
Love is a game that two can play and both win.
Eva Gabor
I was offered seven deals from seven different major labels between 2009-2011, and to be quite honest… nowadays, you need a hit record, a great radio team, an amazing PR firm, social media, a big budget, a team that is ready to work extremely hard, and the drive and passion to win!
Gentlemen, if we don’t cut spending we will be bankrupt. Yes, the medicine is harsh, but the patient requires it in order to live. Should we withhold the medicine? No. We are not wrong. We did not seek election and win in order to manage the decline of a great nation.
Margaret Thatcher
Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
Vince Lombardi
Sometimes when you lose you win, son. Failure is just life’s way of preparing you for success.
Bernie Mac
Failure is an inside job. So is success. If you want to achieve you have to win the war in your thinking first.
Brian Tracy
Don’t be content with doing only your duty. Do more than your duty. It’s the horse that finishes a neck ahead that wins the race.
Andrew Carnegie
I believe the objective of coaching is winning with integrity.
Pete Carril
You don’t win championships by just being normal, by just being average.
Bill Walton
When you go to Detroit you see a town that is resilient, that’s just fighting to win again, and there’s an energy to that. Just watching a city really fighting to get back on its feet and watching the inner strength of a city is tremendous.
George Clooney
The coach’s job is twenty percent technical and training, and eighty per cent inspirational. He may know all there is to know about tactics, technique and training, but if he cannot win the confidence and comradeship of his pupils he will never be a good coach
Franz Stampfl
I remember winning the first time, you know, suddenly everybody expects, well, okay, now he should win every time he tees it up, win six tournaments.
Retief Goosen
I’m a business man and the reason I linked up with a major was because I understand they have that reach that I can’t get no matter how hot I get in the streets. It’s not always about money because I been had money. I want to be on TV and win awards. I want to be number one. You need a label to get through barriers.
Yo Gotti
What our grandmothers told us about playing hard to get is true. The whole point of the game is to impress and capture. It’s not about honesty. Many men and women, when they’re playing the courtship game, deceive so they can win. Novelty, excitement and danger drive up dopamine in the brain. And both sexes brag.
Helen Fisher
Italians can never win from you, but you can lose to them.
(when asked about Ajax’s chances in the 1995 Champs League final against AC Milan)
Johan Cruijff
It’s just a game. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.
Manny Pacquiao
God only pours out his light into the mind after having subdued the rebellion of the will by an altogether heavenly gentleness which charms and wins it.
Blaise Pascal
I’ve always said the players don’t build up rivalries themselves, people from the outside build up the rivalries. I just want to play good golf. I want to try and keep winning golf tournaments.
Rory McIlroy
If I ever hear a founder talk about oh this is how I have a balanced life so on and so forth - they’re not committed to winning.
Reid Hoffman
You may learn much more from a game you lose than from a game you win. You will have to lose hundreds of games before becoming a good player.
Jose Raul Capablanca
If you’re good at it, you can win.
Dawn Fraser
You won’t win if you don’t begin.
Robert H. Schuller
I’m a mad dog whose only concern is winning.
Charles Barkley
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.
Dwayne Johnson
In sports and in business, the greatest leaders are those who make the best decisions in the most crucial of situations. They are the ones who focus their energy on turning tough decisions into winning decisions.
Don Yaeger
Conservatives are winning offices, and champions of big government are cleaning out their desks right now.
Rick Perry
Winning the World Cup was the worst thing that ever happened to the England team.
Clive Woodward
I always had to keep improving my skills in order to remain competitive and keep winning.
Edwin Moses
We’re breaking records and we’re moving forward. I always expected to win Grand Slams. This was meant to be.
Venus Williams
If you can’t be a highway, then just be a trail, If you can’t be the sun, be a star; It isn’t by size that you win or you fail- Be the best of whatever you are.
Douglas Malloch
In order to WIN the game, you must first not LOSE it.
Chuck Noll
You must take the compromise to win, or else nothing. That means: you race or you do not.
Ayrton Senna
There is great potential and deep fragility [in Malaysia] that can be used by any group that stresses on religion, pushing towards Islam, rejecting people and alienating migrants – anything can be used to win the next elections. So these are the signs of fragility that is very much there.
Tariq Ramadan
Yeah and she’s my kinda crazy
The little games she plays
Lord they’ll never get old
She’s too cute to get on my last nerve
The way she throws her little fits
Pokin’ out her lip and bitin’ mine when we kiss
There ain’t a fight that she can’t win
That’s my baby
And she’s my kinda crazy
Brantley Gilbert
You must act in your friends’ interests whether it pleases them or not; the object of love is to serve, not to win.
Woodrow Wilson
Just be yourself, the minute you start being yourself youre gonna win.
It is easier to win than to fail. Everybody sides with the winner. But the failure walks alone.
George Matthew Adams
Put God and me in a cage, what do you think who will win. God, because I created him.
Zach Braff
The great lesson to be learned in the battered towns of England and the ruined cities of Germany is that the best way to win a war is to prevent it from occurring.
George C. Marshall
You don’t have to win it, just don’t lose it.
Ray Lewis
I doubt God keeps track of how many arguments we win; God may indeed keep track of how well we love.
Philip Yancey
But you say, does it represent change? The change is that we are fighting an insurance industry that has killed health reform for generations. They’re spending tens of millions of dollars right now to defeat this bill, and we’re on the doorstep of winning a great victory for the American people.
David Axelrod
Knowledge and action combined can win over any adversity known to man.
Karen Hawkins
I lost the match. I blame only myself for this. There were many opportunities to win. But I missed them, no one else.
Anatoly Karpov
It can be boring to see the same players winning every time.
Marion Bartoli
The NBA is all about winning, but at this level (college basketball) winning doesn’t make you happy. You can win, and play lousy, and in my program, feel lousy. To me it’s about: How good can we be.
Geno Auriemma
Winning isn’t getting ahead of others, it is getting ahead of yourself.
Roger Staubach
Sure, I like to win when I play basketball or board games or video games, but my day isnt ruined if I lose. Im always up for a rematch. In all seriousness, thats something thats nice about maturing.
Aaron Staton
The surface below your feet is so special. It is not like a boxing ring, not like a wrestling mat, it’s its own thing, and when I am there, I am floating, I am moving with total freedom, I am free. And when you know, when you just know you are going to win, like I do, there is no better feeling.
Conor McGregor
Like, I mean I don’t even know why you girls bother at this point. Like give it up, it’s me. I win and you lose.
Nicki Minaj
The will to win is more important then the skill to win. It is possible to achieve only what you actively pursue. Cogito, ergo sum. I think, therefore I am. Keep your head high and work hard everyday, because you’ll never get that day back
Lloy Ball
Winning is a way of expressing yourself.
Boris Becker
I thought of something my old coach at Staunton had often said: ‘We win some, we lose some, and some get rained out; but we always suit up.’
Barry Goldwater
The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
In Western culture, particularly North America, a lot of rules are descriptors for sociopathy: a general acceptance of lying as long as you win, an attitude of “me first,” an attitude that what it looks like is more important than what it is. This makes it much easier for a sociopath to be camouflaged in our culture.
Martha Stout
Every time you win, you’re reborn; when you lose, you die a little.
George Allen
Any manager will tell you that they would rather win one and lose two than to draw three, because you get more points
Les Ferdinand
A lot of people give actors credit when they gain weight for a role in a drama when they win an Oscar, but when you’re doing a sitcom, people don’t give you a lot of credit, because you’ve got to keep your weight on for five or six years if it’s successful.
Mike O’Malley
Our emphasis is on execution, not winning.
Pat Summitt
The harder you work, the less mistakes you make. The fewer mistakes you make, the better your chances of winning.
Ara Parseghian
You will always win if you make an effort, no matter how much. However, if you failed it means you were too lazy.
Albert Camus
As a citizen of the great city of Chicago, I find it impossible to root against the White Sox. The White Sox organization has been much more consistent, in my lifetime at least, at putting a winning ballclub on the field.
Billy Corgan
I think about my parents all the time, especially on Sunday when I’m at Mass. My mother always said, ‘We do not pray to win elections. We pray for people’s health, we pray that God’s will be done, we pray that we do our best. But we do not pray to win elections.’
Nancy Pelosi
People always say you can’t win if you don’t play
Lev Yilmaz
If we can continue to win, hopefully they can falter a little down the stretch.
Darcy Tucker
It has meant a lot to me to challenge the best players in the world and to beat them. And it means a lot to me to be out here and fighting for the title and, you know, it hurts not to win it.
Andre Agassi
I might not come home with hardware, but I’m winning.
Fuzzy Zoeller
You’ll find as you go through life that great depth and smoldering sensuality don’t always win.
Woody Allen
If my primary purpose here at Indiana is to go out and win ballgames, I can probably do that as well as anybody can. I would just cheat, get some money from a lot of people around Indianapolis who want to run the operation that way, and just go out and get the best basketball players I can. Then we’d beat everybody.
Bobby Knight
You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.
Zig Ziglar
I will never, ever let you down. America will start winning again.
Donald Trump
I don’t think either team can win it.
Warren Brown
I got to play with ZZ Top and introduce Bryan Adams and George Michael. And to have it all topped off by me winning ‘American Idol?!’ It’s pretty absurd.
David Cook
This was my first lesson about gambling: if you see somebody winning all the time, he isn’t gambling, he’s cheating. Later on in life, if I were continuously losing in any gambling situation, I would watch very closely.
Malcolm X
The favorite to win the Olympic gold medal in archery is a legally blind athlete from South Korea, mainly because everyone else is too scared to compete next to him.
Jimmy Fallon
When you beat a team so often – especially like this season when Chelsea had already lost three times to us – you know people expect you to do it again. But you also know they’re going to be even more motivated to finally win.
Dennis Bergkamp
In theater and dance, I was trying to win someone’s approval, trying to get in, trying to be good. It felt out of my control, whereas music suddenly felt like this free expression. It was fun.
Susanna Hoffs
Work hard…have fun…be nice…play fair…dream big. We only get one chance at this life. If you’re going to play this game, play it to win.
Robert Herjavec
I prefer to play and lose rather than win, because I know in advance I’m going to win.
Eric Cantona
Our men must win or die. Pompey’s men have… other options.
Julius Caesar
If you admit that to silence your opponent by force
is to win an intellectual argument,
then you admit the right to silence people by force.
Hans Eysenck
Winners train, losers complain. Give me twelve players that want to win and they will find a way to win.
Red Auerbach
The main idea is to win.
John McGraw
I was too much of a victim of the model I created. I tried Change to Win and helping Obama, and then I just ran out of Andy Stern ideas.
Andy Stern
If Democrats start consistently winning Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Nevada, the electoral outlook for Republicans in the future is mighty bleak.
Mark McKinnon
You have to believe that you deserve great things. You have to believe that you deserve to win each fight that you’re in. You have to believe that you deserve to become a champion.
Michael Chandler
Winning an Oscar ain’t about performance. There’s a lot of politics involved.
Mickey Rourke
When I was about six or seven, I did this character reenactment performance where I read a monologue from ‘Peter Pan.’ I got into a complete Peter Pan outfit and did a little paragraph from the script – and I ended up winning an award for it.
Levi Miller
But I was always a bit of a gypsy, anyway. I spent five years at Oklahoma State, five years at Miami and moved on after winning the national championship, and five years with the Cowboys. So, I was ready to move on. We won back-to-back Super Bowls, and I felt that I accomplished what I wanted to accomplish.
Jimmy Johnson
Its gonna sound weird, but Glenn Johnson is one of my favorite fighters, because he was one of those throwback fighters that could lose a fight, and then come back and win.
Ann Wolfe
Sooner or later a rider will emerge who will win more Tours. In every sport we have seen how the records eventually get broken and cycling is no exception.
Miguel Indurain
I just think winners win. And guys who won all the way through high school and college, the best player at every level, they have a way of making things happen and winning games.
Tony Dungy
I’ve learned the number one job of a pro manager is not to win championships but to keep their job.
Mark Cuban
The United States has to have the capability to deal with more than one enemy at one time and be able to confront them and win.
Leon Panetta
The costs savings was a big win, but now we also have a schedule of events and are clearly aware of when our contracts begin and end…we are much more strategic about how we source now.
Jason Kennedy
I’m absolutely gonna win it, because I’m ruthless. I sit at the poker table and my job is to destroy people.
James Woods
Competitive spirit is still at a premium. The more you win, the better you play, the more money you make, so they all have that in mind.
Wayne Gretzky
If England had Fergie, Wenger or Mourinho in charge, they would win the World Cup.
Andy Gray
God stands in no need of our strength or wisdom, but of

God stands in no need of our strength or wisdom, but of our ignorance, of our weakness; let us but give these to Him, and He can make use of us in winning souls.
Dwight L. Moody
I want to be on that team that wins the world championship here in Chicago and sees the city go crazy.
Derrek Lee
If one day I go to a game and I don’t feel I can win, maybe I don’t go.
Brendan Rodgers
Wanting more majors, wanting more wins, almost feels like I think Im being too greedy.
Inbee Park
Don’t just give up, Hachiko. Life is about getting knocked down over and over, but still getting up each time. If you keep getting up, you win.
Ai Yazawa
Winning an Oscar attracts the attention of directors and other actors and creates a boost in salary, particularly for someone like Halle Berry. For an established star like Denzel Washington, the benefits are less tangible.
Marc Platt
If our country got along with Russia, that would be a great thing. When Putin goes out and tells everybody – and you talk about a relationship, but he says Donald Trump is going to win and Donald Trump is a genius, and then I have people saying you should disavow. I said, I’m going to disavow that?
Donald Trump
Now that I’ve won a slam, I know something very few people on earth are permitted to know. A win doesn’t feel as good as a loss feels bad, and the good feeling doesn’t last long as the bad. Not even close.
Andre Agassi
Know how to win and how to lose and be able to handle adversity.
Tom Osborne
Each great athlete must some day bow to that perennial old champion, Father Time, even as I, for Time eventually wins.
Major Taylor
Run faster, jump higher, reach farther, and you’ll always win!
Jerry Garcia
Whether you win or lose, whether you have a good day or bad day, God is with you; He loves you.
Luci Swindoll
The last time I took drugs, I probably took more than anybody could survive.
Charlie Sheen
Never under estimate the Power of the Mind. Persist in creating new thoughts to prevent falling back into negative patterns. It is an ongoing struggle and you have to commit to winning if you are to succeed.
Bob Proctor
Arjuna is a warrior of great renown, says he won’t fight. He tells Krishna: I can’t fight because I love these people. It’s immoral. It’s unjust. There’s no winning.
Frederick Lenz
When I lose, I drink, and when I win I celebrate.
Bo Belinsky
Everyone here contributes to win the games, so there is no pressure on any one player.
Bobby Abreu
There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.
Warren Buffett
Many people in Europe and the U.S. dispute the thesis that we are living through a clash of civilisations between Islam and the west. But a radical minority of Muslims firmly believes that Islam is under siege, and is committed to winning the holy war it has declared against the West.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
How you think when you lose determines how long it will be until you win.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I’d say I’m a revolutionary optimist. I believe that the good guys -the people- are going to win.
Amiri Baraka
You find that you have peace of mind and can enjoy yourself, get more sleep, and rest when you know that it was a one hundred percent effort that you gave – win or lose.
Gordie Howe
We may win when we lose, if we have done what we can; for by so doing we have made real at least some part of that finished product in whose fabrication we are most concerned: ourselves.
Learned Hand
All honor to him who shall win the prize. The world has cried for a thousand years. But to him who tries and fails and dies, I give great honor and glory and tears.
Joaquin Miller
Be resolute, fear no sacrifice, and surmount every difficulty to win victory.
Mao Zedong
You can’t measure success if you have never failed. My father has taught me that if you really do want to reach your goals, you can’t spend any time worrying about whether you’re going to win or lose. Focus only on getting better.
Steffi Graf
