Didn't want to get too intellectual; but here are two of my favorites relating to competitiveness and purpose:

"We shall not grow wiser until we realize that much that we have done was very foolish."

(Friedrich Hayek)

"Being black does not free you from becoming a responsible individual."

(Lawrence Fishburne)

The secret of winning football games is working more as a team, less as individuals. I play not my 11 best, but my best 11. Knute Rockne

I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
- Thomas Jefferson

"Dont die with the music in you" the title of a book by Wayne Bennett, most successful current rugby league coach.
http://www.dotlit.qut.edu.au/reviews/die.html

'Bennett gives readers the chance to adopt a winning attitude that is applicable to all areas of life. A child of a broken home and the father of two disabled children, Wayne's own stories are filled with a truth and integrity that is nothing short of inspirational. He shares his wisdom on subjects such as mateship, self confidence, discipline and family values, and throughout the text endeavours to put across a message he believes is applicable to everybody. "Not everyone in sport can win. For some the only prize can be the character they have built within. It can also be the greatest prize of all."'

"Winning starts on Monday" said by rugby league coach Jack Gibson, when games were mostly played on Sunday.
