On the comradery of an industry and/or sport that understands competition:
"One does not climb the ladder to great success alone, we are supported by those around us. We grow when pushed and challenged, we prosper when that push is never-ending."
Translation: "Be proud of your competition and enjoy their success."
Fortune favours not the bold, the bold make their own fortune.
The most courageous Spartan is the one that knows their fears.
