May nothing that you do be done with any thought of them in mind. There is nothing that needs to be proven.”

Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich

Lance Armstrong
“When you win, you don't examine it very much, except to congratulate yourself. You easily, and wrongly, assume it has something to do with your rare qualities as a person. But winning only measures how hard you've worked and how physically talented you are; it doesn't particularly define you beyond those characteristics.

Losing on the other hand, really does say something about who you are. Among other things it measures are: do you blame others, or do you own the loss? Do you analyze your failure, or just complain about bad luck?

If you're willing to examine failure, and to look not just at your outward physical performance, but your internal workings, too, losing can be valuable. How you behave in those moments can perhaps be more self-defining than winning could ever be. Sometimes losing shows you for who you really are.”
Lance Armstrong, Every Second Counts

“Winning has nothing to do with racing. Most days don't have races anyway. Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism, and never, ever, ever giving up.”
Amby Burfoot, Runner's Guide to the Meaning of Life

“If you ask me how I want to be remembered, it is as a winner. You know what a winner is? A winner is somebody who has given his best effort, who has tried the hardest they possibly can, who has utilized every ounce of energy and strength within them to accomplish something. It doesn't mean that they accomplished it or failed, it means that they've given it their best. That's a winner.”
Walter Payton, Never Die Easy: The Autobiography of Walter Payton

T.F. Hodge
“Some lean back. But those who lean forward are poised to cross the finish-line, first!”

And he looks at me -

And I know it -
I know it in my heart -
Right now -

There's nothing we can't do together -
And we're gonna win -”
