Winning

Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing.

Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all-the-time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing....

It's a reality of life that men are competitive and the most competitive games draw the most competitive men. That's why they're there -- to compete. They know the rules and the objectiveswhen they get in the game. The objective is to win -- fairly, squarely, decently, by the rules -- but to win.

The will to excel and the will to win, they endure. They are more important than any events that occasion them. I don't care what people say about me as long as I win. That's what I get paid for.

There is no room for second place here. There is one place here and that's first place. I've finished second twice in my time here, and I don't ever want to finish second again. There's a second place bowl game, and it's a hinky-dinky football game, held in a hinky-dinky town, played by hinky-dinky football players. That's all second place is: Hinky-Dinky.
