It is about a winning mentality.”

“Personally, I think ‘Dead Americans’ is the best title I have, but you can’t win with everyone.

― Billy Beane

“I never got caught up in playing for history, seeing how many majors I could win, or rewriting the record books.

Without their support, Obama cannot win.”

“The big players historically hold a lot of influence at Chelsea and while I would never doubt their attempts to win matches for the club, their levels undoubtedly change depending on how they feel about a manager at the time.

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“One minute you’re a developing athlete trying to get to the top, then the next minute you do well and win a medal somewhere, and then it’s all foisted on you. You never know when it’s going to happen. You don’t think about the media side of things when you’re a young athlete trying to do well.”

― Jimmy Haynes

“Producer Michael Davies – who did ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ – offered me a TV show, but I turned it down. I wasn’t negotiating: It just didn’t sound like a good idea.

― John Mackey

“If you win a Super Bowl before you’re fired, you’re a genius, and everyone listens to you. But a coach is just a guy whose best class in grammar school was recess and whose best class in high school was P.E. I never thought I was anything but a guy whose best class was P.E.”

― John Madden

“I don’t do things I can’t win.”

“I really want to do everything I can to try to win a game or win on a play. You get fiery; you get chippy out there, but a lot of respect, I never have anybody, like, talk trash in my career in the league, or I don’t talk trash. I think guys respect the fact that I’m coming.”

― Pete Sampras

“When you’re facing an opponent over a broad front, you don’t aim for the opponent’s strong points, important though they may be. Pick a little outpost that you can capture and win. And then you find another place that you can capture and win it, and then you move slowly toward the big places.”

“In any situation that calls for you to persuade, convince or manage someone or a group of people to do something, the ability to tell a purposeful story will be your secret sauce.

“The Nobel Prize has been a disturbance at the beginning of October for some years. It would be gratifying to win, but it would be quite an ordeal, too, with all the events which go on for two days.

“My whole life I’ve hated to lose, no doubt about it. I’ve been guilty of that since I was 6 years old, at camp. I have always played to win. That’s who I am. But I never hurt anybody. The problem is when you’re perceived as being too aggressive where you hurt somebody or do something improper.”

― Peter Mullan

“The way the textbook works is you have gains from trade that should be distributed across all the trading partners. As soon as one bad actor like China massively cheats, they win at the expense of us; they win at the expense of Europe, and over time, it threatens the entire integrity of the global financial system and the global trading system.”

― Peter Navarro

“People remember the treble in 1999 as if we only had to turn up to collect three trophies.

“In France, sometimes, you have some players or coaches say, ‘If we go there, and we come back with one point, it’s okay.’ Here? No chance of this! Everybody wants to win. I think every team is playing to win matches, so the game is hard and fast, intensive. I really like the Bundesliga for that.”

“If I could have had everything exactly the way I wanted, this is how I would have written it down. Win all my fights in the first round, then go to the UFC and headline a show, and have it as a pay-per-view and at home. People’s dreams don’t come true like that.”

― Ronda Rousey

“Between 2012 and 2016, Donald Trump earned 14,000 more votes than Mitt Romney did in Detroit. It was wonderful to have a candidate in our party come to Detroit and campaign and actually show up and invest time there even though he probably didn’t think he was going to win Detroit.”

“If the run game’s not working, you’ll most likely succeed in the pass game, and even if there’s a game where the run game and the pass game’s not working, you’ve got to find a way to continue to win. You can’t get too caught up in one play. You can’t get too caught up one quarter or one drive.”

“It’s OK to sit in the Golden Globe room and look around and think, ‘Oh, Helen Mirren’s a loser tonight, so is Nicole Kidman. Meryl Streep lost tonight. Jessica Lange didn’t win.’ If you’re gonna be in the company of losers, that’s the company to be in.”

“I want to win a championship and to win the Indy 500 makes me want it so much more.”
