Clients His

A racing tipster who only reached Hitler's level of accuracy would not do well for his clients.

- A. J. P. Taylor

Want Forcing

I enjoy racing because I want to do it. No one's forcing me.

- Adam Peaty

Through Been

For the last seven years, I have been racing the best in the world and making my way through the ranks. I am in that spot where I have got a real opportunity to produce something. I am not going to take it for granted because I know those guys will step it up.

- Adam Peaty

Olympic Against

I'm going into my first Olympics, whereas people I'm racing against are going into their third and fourth and probably last Olympics. So there's more pressure on them to perform. I've still got a whole future ahead of me. I am not even the Olympic champ.

- Adam Peaty

Country Means

Nothing means more to me than racing for my country, the Queen, the Royal Family, and the people back home that support me.

- Adam Peaty

Flight Been

It hasn't always been a sweet ride. When I was 15, I almost hated racing in finals because I was so nervous. But as I got more experienced, I had to choose between fight and flight - and I've fought every time.

- Adam Peaty

Driving Most

I don't do much driving - about 5,000-6,000 miles a year. And most of that is to the airport and to the racing circuits.

- Allan McNish

Eyesight Very

To be a racing driver it's essential you have very good eyesight, and that's especially relevant at night. Your senses are heightened, you're travelling over 200mph, you need to focus on that 110-metre braking point and you have to have absolute faith and commitment in your driving.

- Allan McNish

Desire Rest

We're involved in racing because there's that element of competition. But there's that desire to push yourself beyond the natural comfort zone and the boundaries that are preset if you like, and to be better than the rest.

- Allan McNish

Track About

It's all about racing on the track.

- Adam Petty

Young Through

I was always fast; I was always racing guys that were older than me and beating them, so I always had speed. I was able to make good cuts at a young age, on the side of the house with my dad, going through different plays, working on cuts and stuff like that.

- Adrian Peterson

Soccer Town

I grew up in a town with a great wrestling tradition. Then I was a team sport queen in high school; I played softball, volleyball, and soccer. Oh, and I also did ski racing.

- Aimee Mullins

Book About

I would not say I was not interested in studies - it just wasn't there in me to pursue academics. I would open a page in the textbook and start thinking about everything under the sun except what was there in the book. I was more into extra-curricular activities and sports like NCC, rifle shooting, aero-modelling, bike racing, etc.

- Ajith Kumar

Other Putting

I had a hard time treating my field as if it's horse racing, putting actors in competition against each other. I see how the industry and the studios feel it's important, but I don't really have a feeling for being in competition. I want to feel sympathetic and close to others, not opposed to them.

- Alan Arkin

Manufacturers Could

It was not until I started racing for car manufacturers that I found a car I could really get attached to. I am the son of a car dealer, so up until then, cars just came and went.

- Allan McNish

Very Got

Especially with sports cars, when you have got so many cars on the track with various degrees of competitiveness, then something will happen. It's the nature of racing, the law of averages. If you want to be a front-runner then you are going to have to push very hard, and collisions can happen.

- Allan McNish

Uncle Very

Growing up, I would say, when we were racing go-karts back in the day, it was always our uncle. We were always looking up to our uncle. I mean, he won the Daytona 500, he's a very well-respected man, and we've always looked up to that.

- Amber Cope

Mood Opera

I have always loved music and singing, and I am open to listen to any type of music. Regardless of my mood, my heart is always set racing when I listen to opera. When I decide which music I want to hear, my choice is almost invariably an opera recording.

- Andrea Bocelli

Some Tens

Like most manic depressives, some of my symptoms included racing thoughts that I simply had to act upon - flying from New York to Paris and taking the train to Berlin; flying to Argentina in the middle of the night; spending tens of thousands of dollars on unnecessary garments, dinners and gifts.

- Andy Behrman

Want Next

When there's somebody racing side-by-side, when somebody's right next to me and they're pushing and we're both tired, we're both fatigued, I want to be able to beat them mentally.

- Apolo Ohno

Career Excited

Regardless, we are a two career household, and it's Dario's season, and I'm really excited about going racing.

- Ashley Judd

Always Lunchtime

I'm a sport fan. So, I have always watched everything, and I used to watch racing. Formula One was always on. The genius about it is that it's on at lunchtime on a Sunday.

- Asif Kapadia

Every Day Town

Every day I am part of my local town community, part of Rio Mesa High School Alumni, part of the racing world, part of the diabetes community worldwide.

- Charlie Kimball

Continuous Wear

I wear a continuous glucose monitor when I'm racing.

- Charlie Kimball

Race Car Gotten

Racing is what I live for, and it makes my world go around. Having said that, without the support of the diabetes community, I may not have gotten back into the race car after my diagnosis in October 2007.

- Charlie Kimball

Mechanical Day One

As the son of a racing car designer and mechanical engineer, I was exposed to motorsports from day one.

- Charlie Kimball

Practice Becoming

When I turned 16, I got my driver's license like the rest of my classmates, but I also got an extra present: a two-day practice session in a Formula Ford: my first open-wheel racing car and the first step on the ladder toward becoming a professional driver.

- Charlie Kimball

Young TV

I have a lot of great racing memories growing up in Europe as a young boy - playing with car parts on my dad's desk, watching the races on Sunday afternoons to try and spot him on TV, even having the chance to go to Formula 1 races where he was working.

- Charlie Kimball

I Think Other

You don't get a mix of ovals and road/street course racing with this level of competition and speed anywhere other than Indy Car, and I think that's why it has remained a popular choice for so many young drivers.

- Charlie Kimball

My Life Compete

Gone are the days when you could lie on a beach between races and still be in good enough shape to compete. Gone are the days when simply wearing a brand on your firesuit was enough to justify the marketing expense of an Indy Car. Racing an Indy Car is only about a quarter of my life as a racing driver.

- Charlie Kimball

Very Committed

Beside the brand-ambassador elements of the modern racing driver, the evolution of the athlete has mandated that as drivers, we are very committed to fitness.

- Charlie Kimball

Like Made

I grew up in a culture of motorbikes. So I like racing just fine. Quite a lot, actually. That was when I was a boy in Australia. And I never really made the jump to cars after that.

- Chris Hemsworth

Like Pumped

Me being the metal fan that I am, I like to listen to thrash metal to get me pumped - that kind of music will get your heart racing and ready for a crowd.

- Christina Grimmie

Back About

I once bought an old car back after I sold it because I missed it so much and I had forgotten that it never ran. It was a British racing car. You know, because I just wanted it back. I could only remember what was good about it.

- Connie Chung

Through Allow

When fear rushed in, I learned how to hear my heart racing but refused to allow my feelings to sway me. That resilience came from my family. It flowed through our bloodline.

- Coretta Scott King

Career Very

As a teenager, I developed a great interest in not only horse breeding but also horse racing and used to bet based on red-hot tips. I realized that becoming a bookmaker would be very lucrative, but Dad put his foot down, saying it was an inappropriate career.

- Cyrus S. Poonawalla

Stigma Turf

Along with my passion for horse breeding, I was a horse racing enthusiast... In 1974 I was elected as a committee member and subsequently as a steward of the Turf Club. I had a burning desire to clean up the sport, which had always carried the stigma of gambling and manipulation.

- Cyrus S. Poonawalla

Mind Individual

Typically, when you have a depressed individual, they feel hopeless. They feel miserable. Their mind is racing, their heart is pounding. They feel anxious. They feel exhausted yet they can't sleep.

- Dale Archer

Important Finishing

Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

- Dale Earnhardt

Night Saturday

I enjoy Saturday night racing.

- Dale Earnhardt

Young Wheel

When he was young, I told Dale Jr. that hunting and racing are a lot alike. Holding that steering wheel and holding that rifle both mean you better be responsible.

- Dale Earnhardt

Top Everybody

That strategy of racing for the top five and racing for the win is where everybody wants to be.

- Dale Earnhardt

Want Up

I want to be up front racing.

- Dale Earnhardt

Testing Had Enough

Winter testing is essential but there comes a point where you have had enough of all the rehearsals and the pretend racing. You just want to get down to the real action.

- Damon Hill

Career Perfectly

But I have to say I'm incredibly proud of the Panther Racing National Guard Team, and in my IndyCar career there's not many races where I've honestly left the track feeling that we've executed everything perfectly. And I have to say, I thought they did an absolute phenomenal job. The pit stops were just first class.

- Dan Wheldon

I Am Similar

Every training session, I try to simulate the conditions similar to where I am racing.

- Dane Bird-Smith

Enjoy Play

We don't do things we aren't good at by nature. I wouldn't play basketball because I'm only 5' 1". Find what you enjoy - whether it's racing, flying a helicopter, being a doctor, or stitching clothes together. Once you've done that, you have the passion you need.

- Danica Patrick

I Think Been

I spent my whole childhood watching open-wheel racing. I spent years going to England and racing open wheel, coming back and racing open wheel. It's been my world for 20 years and beyond that. For almost my whole life, I've been watching it. I watch it and I think I know how to do it.

- Danica Patrick

Talking About

On Memorial Day, I was out floating on Lake Norman and came across Denny Hamlin. We struck up a conversation, and one of the first things we were talking about was how much it helped him when he started racing the Cup car and how much it helped his Nationwide program.

- Danica Patrick

City Hid

When I was 15, my parents left town for a month. They hid the keys to the car, but I found them. That month, I drove my stepdad's Thunderbird Super Coupe into Manhattan every day, and I would crank Cypress Hill as I flew around the city, racing the taxis.

- Danny Masterson

Through Some

Obesity is racing through America, everywhere. It's high time someone spent some money to do something about it.

- David H. Murdock

Excellence Other

When someone is good at what he does but is a nonconformist, there is a temptation in horse racing, like in all kinds of other areas of human endeavor, to dismiss him for his nonconformity rather than to recognize him for his excellence.

- David Milch

Had Approaching

No, we always had something to do because I did all the wave runners and jet skis and boats approaching the atolls and stuff like that, so you could do that without showing the actual atoll or the set that you're going towards, but detailing all those guys racing towards it.

- David R. Ellis

Never Go Away

The racing bug is never going to go away. It's like the Mafia.

- Davy Jones

Over Before

Before I was an actor I was an apprentice jockey, and now I'm out there racing against boys, sort of the spokesperson for people over 50 that they can do it.

- Davy Jones

Reason Very

The reason I'm drawn to it is - both the off road racing and the motorcycles on the track - it takes a lot for me to quiet my brain and anything that requires 100% of my attention and focus I find very soothing and that is the closest I get to being content.

- Dax Shepard

Love Country

Beyond racing, I just love the art form of running, of conceiving new ideas like the 50 Marathons in 50 States in 50 Days. It's the ultimate expression of what I love to do, which is run, and travel, and see this great country.

- Dean Karnazes

Make Get

I didn't get into racing to make friends.

- Jimmie Johnson

Today World

The competition in today's world of racing is so tough.

- Jimmie Johnson

Made Courses

I grew up racing off-road trucks. They were on road courses with jumps. I made a name for myself in that style of racing.

- Jimmie Johnson

Lose Next

You try to do the best with what you've got and ignore everything else. That's why horses get blinders in horse racing: You look at the horse next to you, and you lose a step.

- Jimmy Iovine

Through Frustrated

I was racing through life, utterly confused and angry. I don't know if I was out of control; it was more like I felt frustrated with myself and everything I saw happening around me.

- Jimmy Nail

Still Fundamental

A lesser but still fundamental rule of racing is that you properly enter the event. Anyone who doesn't but still insists on running interferes with the paying customers.

- Joe Henderson

Death Best

We are all racing towards death. No matter how many great, intellectual conclusions we draw during our lives, we know they're all only man-made, like God. I begin to wonder where it all leads. What can you do, except do what you can do as best you know how.

- John Hurt

Country Prefer

We could say that people who eat grits, listen to country music, follow stock-car racing, support corporal punishment in the schools, hunt 'possum, go to Baptist churches and prefer bourbon to Scotch are likely to be Southerners.

- John Shelton Reed

Profession Solid

The profession of book writing makes horse racing seem like a solid, stable business.

- John Steinbeck

Been Tries

I was this guy who'd been racing around down there, on that field in 1999, running straight over people, scoring tries, winning games, having fun. And I ended up so sick I couldn't even run past a little baby.

- Jonah Lomu

Game Learned

I learned to approach racing like a game of billiards. If you bash the ball too hard, you get nowhere. As you handle the cue properly, you drive with more finesse.

- Juan Manuel Fangio

Firmly Grip

The driver of a racing car is a component. When I first began, I used to grip the steering wheel firmly, and I changed gear so hard that I damaged my hand.

- Juan Manuel Fangio

Mind Always

My mind is always racing.

- Justin Bieber

Car Race

When you are fitted in a racing car and you race to win, second or third place is not enough.

- Ayrton Senna

Believe Feel

I feel that after all those horrible reviews and jokes, I wasn't crazy all these years to stand up for the music I believe in. This album has proven that somewhere in the human race, the human heart is still racing and breaking and I am so grateful.

- Barry Manilow

Thought Mission

I thought: This is not racing, it's a suicide mission.

- Barry Sheene

Always Funny Thing

The funny thing is that people see one film like 'Racing Stripes' or 'Ice Princess' and all of a sudden, slip me into this category of 'that's what she's always involved in.'

- Hayden Panettiere

Drinking Been

My biggest weakness as a endurance athlete has been in not drinking enough water after training, thereby racing sometimes while dehydrated.

- Bill Rodgers

Very Terms

My whole feeling in terms of racing is that you have to be very bold. You sometimes have to be aggressive and gamble.

- Bill Rodgers

Some Grip

Nothing's ever too fast. Maybe sometimes on the road some people are too fast if they don't know how to control the car, but in racing, the faster and more power and grip, the better it is.

- Heikki Kovalainen

Career Other

I saw Lotus F1 racing as the best choice for me to progress my career, after considering several other options that were available to me.

- Heikki Kovalainen

Been TV

I'm an avid collector of toys. I got everything. Name it. From the Easy Bake Oven to Barbies to every TV show doll, racing cars... I've been collecting since I was a little kid.

- Biz Markie

Against Which

Scare answers to scare, and force begets force, until at length it comes to be seen that we are racing one against another after a phantom security which continually vanishes as we approach.

- Henry Campbell-Bannerman

Why I Think

Failures are much more dramatic than successes, and people like drama. I think this is why automobile races draw such crowds. People expect spectacular crashes, which we tend to find more interesting than cars just racing around the track. The same is true of bridges, buildings, or any structure or machine.

- Henry Petroski

Attitude Career

As the time goes by, you change, your learn new things, your attitude is different. For the moment, I'm still enjoying ski racing so much that it would be difficult for me to think about ending my career.

- Hermann Maier

More Learned

My attitude on skis is different now. I have learned to put less pressure on myself and on the edges of my skis when I'm racing, to be keep myself more under control.

- Hermann Maier

Bad Activity

Ski racing, especially downhill, is a dangerous activity and there are many accidents. It would be really too bad to lose everything because of a crash.

- Hermann Maier

Winner Wanted

In racing, I wanted to be a winner and to be a winner, you have to be willing to roll the dice.

- Bobby Rahal

Son Porsche

My son is racing his first 24-hour this year with Porsche.

- Bobby Rahal

Going Very

I guess it is the sense of personal satisfaction that racing gives you that I am probably going to miss, because in racing you get that feedback very quickly.

- Bobby Rahal

Wrong Direction

From 1999 to 2003 was the peak of equipment in ski racing. Since then, it's all gone in the wrong direction.

- Bode Miller

Some Very

My grandfather was very into horse racing, and I found some of his old journals and got into it from there. It has a lot of parallels to skiing. It's a fun lifestyle, being around the racetrack.

- Bode Miller

Behind Through

When I was a boy, one of my favorite places to go was a pine-filled hollow high on the mountain behind our house. It was a place where the industrial song of Coalwood subsided. I would sit on a dead log and listen to nothing except the beating of my own heart and the thoughts racing through my head.

- Homer Hickam

Right Bikes

I wanted to put a really good kids' racing bike out there for kids under 14: 10-year-olds, eight-year-olds, right down to balance bikes for kids.

- Bradley Wiggins

Books Works

More books, more racing and more foolishness with cars and motorcycles are in the works.

- Brock Yates

Pigeon Unlawful

Pigeon racing is a lousy, greedy, and often unlawful activity. One thing that it is not is kind to birds.

- Ingrid Newkirk

Couple Funniest

Racing Stripes was so much fun to do. It's one of the funniest movies I've seen in a couple years.

- Bruce Greenwood

Want Always

I always want to be racing.

- Bruno Senna

Need Been

I've been racing for my whole life, and I know what I need to do to be able to win.

- J. R. Celski

Back Nothing

I can say I'm a little scared of racing. It brings back memories, of course. But it's nothing I can't handle.

- J. R. Celski

Bicycle Through

Slow travel now rivals the fly-to-Barcelona-for-lunch culture. Advocates savour the journey, travelling by train or boat or bicycle, or even on foot, rather than crammed into an airplane. They take time to plug into the local culture instead of racing through a list of tourist traps.

- Carl Honore

Very Longer

From today I am no longer a racing driver. I'm retired and I am very happy.

- Jackie Stewart

Fuel Could

We were racing at circuits where there were no crash barriers in front of the pits, and fuel was lying about in churns in the pit lane. A car could easily crash into the pits at any time. It was ridiculous.

- Jackie Stewart
