If you have 100 acres worth of food, and you’ve got 500 animals out there, the young ones and the old ones are going to starve to death because they can’t compete. When they starve, they start to eat things they shouldn’t be eating and spread disease not only to them but to us.

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.

What is innovation if not our ticket to every business interest in the world? It’s the ticket to solving the world’s problems – the energy problems, the pollution problems, the global warming problems. If it isn’t for science and engineering, how will we compete in the new world?

Harvey Weinstein
Pedro has special qualities. He adds a lot, dribbling, scoring, keeping the pitch wide. He’s always ready to compete.

Jason Hammel

You’ve really got to, first of all, love the game, you got to love the competition, you got to love to compete.
It is great to add some glamour to the food industry, l

Vincent Frank

For me, the Premier League is full of quality, and the clubs competing at the top are the same who compete at the top of Europe every year.

The biggest problem in Italy is work. And out-of-control immigration damages the labor market because Italians can’t compete with illegal workers who are being exploited. So to restore dignity to work, we must control immigration.

No, I’ve never competed. I did, however, train in a boxing gym with a good coach beginning in 1993. I’d been writing about the sport for a dozen years by then and wanted to know what boxers endured, what it felt like. I was too old to compete when I started, but I sparred enough to get a taste.

If we had a flat tax code rather than a 70,000-page document full of cronyism and favors, bureaucrats and elected officials wouldn’t have the power to do you any favors. That’s what we need.

Gone are the days when you could lie on a beach between races and still be in good enough shape to compete.

It’s difficult to compete against a player that’s also refereeing the game.
In the United States, female fisticuffs were marginalized, first as erotic vaudeville in the 19th century and later as serious competition developed in the first half of the 20th. Legal wars waged by boxers in the 1960s and ’70s won women the right to compete professionally nationwide.
I’m a big fan of Lou Reed, and I do a lot of talking through songs. It’s more effective with my vocal limitations and also more powerful to slightly sing sometimes. It depends on the emotion, but I’m never going to try to compete with great singers.
There’s this misconception that comedy and music go together. They don’t. Comedians can’t compete with rock stars; they’re just not on the same level. Rock stars will always be cooler. They will always get more girls.

You have to be ready to compete. Because lots of people dream that dream, to be the best at something. But are you ready to commit to the hard work that it takes to get there? For me, it just became a part of my life, and it was what it was. Another day, another basketball practice or another game.

To die for one’s country is such a worthy fate that all compete for so beautiful a death.

A lot of these guys in ‘Fight Master’ will compete in Bellator and in mixed mart arts for quite some time.
Randy Couture
On the weekend of the Olympic trials, I lashed out at someone I’m really close to. I’ve lashed out at my mum, my siblings. It’s so hard when all you want to do is compete, and your body‘s just denying you. But without my family, I’d be nothing.

My mom had started to go to work when I was nine or ten, so I was aware of women trying to find their own identities by working. But I was still influenced by men to such an extreme. I wanted to play their games and wanted to compete in their world and be like them.
My weaknesses are my jumps. The reason is that although I land them in practice, when I actually compete or perform, I should let my body go and stabilize my mind better. Also, I need to work on not letting negative thoughts and emotions get to me on the ice.
Oksana Baiul
God creates us to compete. He creates us to win. It matters. But you’ve got no chance if you don’t do your best.
I think one of the big issues with, you know, people who have strong faith in addition to competing is that conflict between accepting things the way they are, and wanting to compete and get better, and at what point are you in the right balance.
Tom Lehman
I was around 15 when I first wanted to compete in an Olympics. I even remember the first time I got to wear a GB kit as a junior. I’ve even kept it. It’s in my mum’s loft somewhere, probably gone mouldy by now.
Washington has incentivized the militarization of local police precincts by using federal dollars to help municipal governments build what are essentially small armies – where police departments compete to acquire military gear that goes far beyond what most of Americans think of as law enforcement.

Governors compete. States compete. People & businesses decide.
Where we can compete on merit, we do very well.
You can’t win in any sport without heavily concentrating on revenue generation. You have to be relentless in that regard if you are going to be able to afford the kind of players you need to compete at the highest level.

I don’t think I was ever designed to be a ubiquitous worldwide star. I’m a singer-songwriter writing quite personal songs. You’re not supposed to chuck me on a stage with bells and whistles. There was a struggle ahead after that happened, and perhaps I was trying to write songs to compete in that arena.
Divestitures have long been the preferred remedy for horizontal mergers, where there’s an overlap between the two companies.

Buddy Murphy
The bottom line is that our kids deserve a brighter future. They deserve an opportunity to attend college, regardless of their wealth or class. And our economy needs an educated work force that can compete in the global race for jobs.

Is my ability what it was at, say, 25 or 30 years old? Probably not, but I like to compete. I like to go out and play the game hard.
Jim Thome
I don't have an expiry date. My body is my answer - whe

I don’t have an expiry date. My body is my answer – when I see that I can no longer compete, when my head is not in it anymore, it will be the time to stop.
Mitt – what I speak to Mitt Romney about is jobs. What I speak to Mitt Romney about is China, because he’s got a great view on China and how they’re trying to destroy our country by taking our jobs and making our product and manipulating their currency, so that it makes it almost impossible for our companies to compete.
Donald Trump
Technology is driving the innovation. Technology is driving the creativity. Technology and the use of that is going to determine our workers’ ability to compete in the 21st century global marketplace.

Howard Berman
I was trained in classical piano, but it kind of dawned on me that classical pianists compete for six job openings a year, and the rest of us get to play ‘Blue Moon’ in a hotel lobby.
A friend of mine who is in the publishing business knew I was writing a book, and he said, ‘Have you said anything yet about the good guy? Because I know you spend so much time with the bad guys.’ Because they’re fun. So then you have to make the good guy fun, in order to compete. That’s the challenge.

If you, as a company, can get a deal that I, as a company, cannot get, you can compete with me but not on the merits, because your tax burden is not the same as mine.
The Olympic Games are highly commercialised. They purport to follow the traditions of an ancient athletics competition, but today it is the commercial aspect that is most apparent. I have seen how, through sport, cities and corporations compete against each other for financial gain.
Consciousness turns out to consist of a maelstrom of events distributed across the brain. These events compete for attention, and as one process outshouts the others, the brain rationalizes the outcome after the fact and concocts the impression that a single self was in charge all along.
I want challenges. I want to compete. I don’t want it to always be easy. I don’t want it to always just be a few of us girls. I want there to be competition.

The theater of the mind is impossible to compete with, and I like the idea that with a few suggestions, each reader forms in his or her own mind what a character or a place looks like.
It is easy to fall into despair thinking about all that is wrong with the world. The joys seems so small in comparison. Internet videos of cats riding Roombas just can’t compete with a father talking about how his dead 13-year-old son had wanted to be a pilot.
