If someone really takes a risk, it doesn’t get dismissed. That’s what happened when the Oscar was won posthumously by Heath Ledger, who did one of the definitive villain performances of all time.

Although I have to say, it’s become a lot harder for me since I won the world series because everyone wants to beat me. For example, bluffing is really tough now, because there’s always someone who calls me on the off-chance that they’ll then be able to say they read a world champion‘s bluff.

If I had an ego as big as the Eiffel Tower, would I have won this many collective trophies? I know people like to talk about it. And O.K., I am not going to answer every story.

I question myself every day. That’s what I still find motivating about this. I don’t have the answers, I don’t pretend that I do just because I won the match. Just keep fighting and maybe something good happens.
True as this is, it is also true that for one who won through there were many who gained nothing, and it was, and is, the sheer weight of numbers of those who failed of this that has made their influence on the modern life as pervasive and controlling as it is.
It’s true that if it’s always going to be that if you win the World Cup or European Championship, you’re a success, and if you don’t, you’re a failure, then you’re bedding yourself for a lack of success because there aren’t many coaches who have won those things, and there are thousands who haven’t.
The fact that the adult American Negro female emerges a formidable character is often met with amazement, distaste and even belligerance. It is seldom accepted as an inevitable outcome of the struggle won by survivors, and deserves respect if not enthusiastic acceptance.

You can’t win unless you have good people with great attitude. They are the ones who won the games. I didn’t win any games. You never saw a coach make a tackle anywhere. My philosophy was to get the best players and then try to do something new with them.
A better ending could not have been scripted. Of course, if we had won, that would have been better.

The Security Council represents the situation from 1945 – you had the Allies who won the war who occupied that. The defeated guys – the Germans and Japan – were out.

Battles are won in the hearts of men.

When I fish, I stop thinking about anything else. But truth be told, if you want to declare victories, I can tell you the fish have won a lot more than I have. It’s interesting that something with a brain the size of a fish’s can outsmart us humans, who think we are el supremo.

You ask what my conclusions are, rereading my journals and looking back on World War II from the vantage point of quarter century in time?

So far, I’ve never missed a deadline for a term paper, a review, a manuscript.

I can safely say that no one who has ever won an Oscar didn’t want to win an Oscar.
Yes, I won the Bafta. I thought the British were very intelligent.
I think one of the hardest times was when I almost won a Web.com tour event in 2016 after my freshman year. I lost in a playoff to Ollie Schniederjans and J.J. Spaun. I mean, who knows what could’ve happened if I’d won?
I won in a primary, so I understand primary fights.

We have not won the battle against drug trafficking.
We got ratings. It isn’t that they won’t quarrel with you, or say you’re always right. But as long as you stay strong and the ratings are good and you’re reasonable – I don’t think we fought unreasonably. We basically won that right.
Dorothy Hamill was my big idol as a kid. She’d won the Olympics in 1976. She was America’s sweetheart with her personality, her talent, her haircut.
Marino was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005, and his name always comes up when the conversation centers on the greatest quarterbacks of all time. But his greatness comes with an asterisk: He never won the Big Game.
I sort of try to write everything for me. I’m a huge sports fan but have no interest in minutiae. I don’t remember who won Super Bowls five years ago or listen to sports talk radio. I’m trying to make sure the jokes are self-contained so they’re accessible to everyone.
I won at every level – all the way since I started playing the game of basketball at nine. I’ve won at every level, won championships at every level. And, you know, it won’t be fulfilled until I win at the highest level.

You always want to have good balance. That’s the key to winning a Super Bowl. You look at the teams who have won championships, you got to have balance. So, to be able to run the ball effectively and throw the ball effectively is what gives you the chance to win a world championship.
But the manager’s bought wisely – the players who’ve come in have taken us on to a different level and the players who won promotion have also performed at the top level, so long may it continue.
The fact is, human rights victories are rarely won by powerful governments or well-armed militaries. More often than not, these battles are led by individuals and small groups of people determined to overcome wrong. Think King, Gandhi, Mandela.

I have won on Honda and Yamaha so maybe it is interesting to win with a third team, Ducati, who are Italian.

If you’re playing for 10 or 15 years, you can’t every week run six option plays. It can be around. It can be a part of the game, but sooner or later you’ve got to deliver the ball from the pocket. That’s the game. Now, if the game changes, and it’s proven a championship can be won from the pistol spread, then I’m wrong.

A game is not won until it is lost.
I won four world titles, got beat twice – but avenged one of those losses – and the other loss was on points to someone who was unbeaten in Andre Ward. I had a comfortable, successful career and it wasn’t through natural ability but through dedication and hard work.

By refocusing our space program on Mars for America’s future, we can restore the sense of wonder and adventure in space exploration that we knew in the summer of 1969. We won the moon race; now it’s time for us to live and work on Mars, first on its moons and then on its surface.
Once we have a war there is only one thing to do. It must be won. For defeat brings worse things than any that can ever happen in war.

I think it’s one of the more underrated careers out there. A lot of times it wasn’t the flashiest stuff, but I’ve gone out there, I’ve had great streaks, I won the light heavyweight belt.
Technology has changed things, same as everywhere. But the economy has changed drastically. When Jamaica first won independence, our dollar was stronger than the U.S. dollar. Now ours is about 90 to one. That’s had a big impact on crime and poverty.

I consider ‘Dr. Horrible‘ a tremendous success. The fact that it won an Emmy I just think lends validity to what we were doing and the point we were trying to make: taking the power into someone else’s hands and changing the world.

When I fought the Tories over climate change and won, more than trebling renewable power with a new subsidy policy combining state intervention with competitive market forces, it was world-beatingly radical.
Of course, money matters to everyone even if some don’t want to admit it. If I won the Race to Dubai, I look at that prize money and think it could pay off my new house or the range I’m building. I am privileged to play golf for a living – look around St Andrews, that’s my office.
The thing about it is, all those races we lost, we won this race together. We won it as a team.
I was watching ‘Deal or No Deal’ on YouTube recently, and I bawled when the contestant won £250,000. I think I just like watching people achieve their dreams.

If Scott Brown can win in a state that President Obama won by 26 points, I can win in a district that Obey won by just 20 points against an unknown, underfunded challenger in the Democratic landslide of 2008. It means there is not a single Democrat in the country who is safe.
