Favorite Athletic Competition Quotes

1. "Encourage kids to enjoy running and play in athletics. Don't force them to run too much competition."
Author: Arthur Lydiard
2. "Athletic competition clearly defines the unique power of our attitude."
Author: Bart Starr
3. "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."
Author: Jackson Katz
4. "Friendships born on the field of athletic strife are the real gold of competition. Awards become corroded, friends gather no dust."

5. "There is a belief advanced today, and in some cases by conservative black authors, that poor children and particularly black children should not be allowed to hear too much about these matters. If they learn how much less they are getting than rich children, we are told, this knowledge may induce them to regard themselves as "victims," and such "victim-thinking," it is argued, may then undermine their capacity to profit from whatever opportunities may actually exist. But this is a matter of psychology-or strategy-and not reality. The matter, in any case, is academic since most adolescents in the poorest neighborhoods learn very soon that they are getting less than children in the wealthier school districts. They see suburban schools on television and they see them when they travel for athletic competitions. It is a waste of time to worry whether we should tell them something they could tell to us. About injustice, most poor children in American cannot be fooled."
Author: Jonathan Kozol
6. "Being properly prepared is one of the biggest assets in business and in athletic competition."
Author: Keeth Smart
7. "It no longer matters who the father of the inevitable child may be, since there's no more property to inherit, no father-son loyalty required for war. Sex is no longer a mysterious rite, viewed with ambivalence or downright loathing, conducted in the dark and inspiring suicides and murders. Now it's more like an athletic demonstration, a free-spirited romp. Maybe Crake was right, thinks Snowman. Under the old dispensation, sexual competition had been relentless and cruel: for every pair of happy lovers there was a dejected onlooker, the one excluded. Love was its own transparent bubble-dome: you could see the two inside it, but you couldn't get in there yourself."
Author: Margaret Atwood
8. "Because I just like sports, I like athletics and I like competition."
Author: Trishelle Cannatella
