*You must hate to lose more than you love to win!
*"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.". "Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.". "So...It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you'd better be running."
