Our competition has always been anything that is wasting your time when you're bored at work. In a broad sense.

And that's always been the goal.

We had a competition on ITV for it, and none of the entries were any good, so I approached their manager, Bertie Mee, and asked him if he would let me have a stab. He did, and within a few weeks they were singing it at Wembley on the way to the 1971 double.

- Jimmy Hill

I Think Lot

Competition is a sin.

- John D. Rockefeller

- Hamish Bowles

- Hobart Alter

My Life Makes

I live for competition. It makes my life complete.

- Bradley A. Smith

Political Some

Incumbents don't like it, but political competition is a good thing. Incumbents usually outspend challengers by better than 3 to 1. Super PACs, which tend to support challengers, have nullified some of this advantage.

Against Put

Whenever the competition is sleeping is when I shine.

Book Been

For the last 15 years that I have been performing, all I ever wanted to do was transcend poetry to the world. See, it wasn't enough for me to write a book.

- Lemon Andersen

Them Had

Compete Other

Competition gives birth to a lot of success, and if no one ever challenged you, you wouldn't go anywhere. It makes sense to compete with others for a promotion at work. But so many women take it a step further and won't even support other women. They end up competing over things that don't make sense - like how we look.

- Lilly Singh

Best Some

If children can't handle competition when it's necessary, or take some criticism, or never strive to be better because their parents inadvertently programmed them to believe they are already the best even when they're not, then they are in for some serious shocks and bumps down the road.

Competition is an easy way to get into flow.

- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Why Deserves

I truly don't know why the boys are getting all the votes - it could be because they are really amazing, and that's all there is to it. They're really, really good and every single boy deserves to be in the competition right now, and so do the two girls.

- Pia Toscano

Nervous Get

I get nervous for any competition. I also get really competitive.

Other Your

I started writing sketches with Dennis Kelly, who I ended up writing 'Pulling' with. We entered a BBC competition and did quite well, then started writing bits for other people's shows. You wheedle your way in, write pilots and eventually you end up writing a sitcom.

- Sharon Horgan

Play About

As far as the Jets go, I'm competing to play. It will be a heated competition between Kellen and me, and I'm excited about that; I will do it in a respectful way. I have the utmost respect for him because he's a great player. Whatever's best for team will be best for the team and the coaches will decide.

- Mark Sanchez

Sports Like

Because I just like sports, I like athletics and I like competition.

- Trishelle Cannatella

Assumes Acts

If a company is not a monopoly, then the law assumes market competition can restrain the company's actions. No problem. If a monopoly exists, but the monopoly does not engage in acts designed to destroy competition, then we can assume that it earned and is keeping its monopoly the pro-consumer way: by out-innovating its competitors.

- Marvin Ammori


People now, especially with the Internet, are connected. They have an expectation of behaviour, of accountability, avoiding conflict and fair and just competition.

I believe it is still true that conflicts among major powers usually stem from geopolitical rivalries but rarely from economic competition.

- Robert Kagan


When the government picked companies and gave them monopoly rights to frequencies in San Francisco and Los Angeles and New York and Chicago, it was picking the winners of the competition; it wasn't setting the terms of the competition.

- Robert McChesney

Own Been

Honestly, I wish I'd known just how hard it is and how competitive the acting world is. I took my time; I went at my own pace. That's been helpful over the years, but also, I didn't quite realize how incredible everyone else was going to be: the level of competition and everyone's skill.

Been Bonus

During such a competition players are there for a long time as well as all the people around them. They need to train, to eat, to go out. There ought to be something in it for everyone. On that particular point, my experience has been a bonus.

- Michel Patini

Star Huge Star

When you get older, unless you're a huge star, the parts become less and the competition becomes greater. Because the guys left standing are the best.

Around Too

Women are always told, 'You're not going to make it, its too difficult, you can't do that, don't enter this competition, you'll never win it,' - they need confidence in themselves and people around them to help them to get on.

- Zaha Hadid
