Competition: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

“Competition is not only the basis of protection to the consumer, but is the incentive to progress." - Herbert Hoover

"Competition brings out the best in products and the worst in people." - David Sarnoff

"There is competition, but it is used in a good way. It is positive to want to go first, provided the intention is to pave the way for others, make their path more easy, help them, or show the way. Competition is negative when we wish to defeat others, to bring them down in order to lift ourselves up." - Dalai Lama

"Life is a competition not with others, but with ourselves. We should seek each day to live stronger, better, truer lives; each day to master some weakness of yesterday; each day to repair a mistake; each day to surpass ourselves." - David B. Haight

The world is divided into people who do things and people who get the credit. Try, if you can, to belong to the first class. There's far less competition. - Dwight Whitney Morrow
