Frasi Pierre de Coubertin

Pubblicità

„The important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win, but to take part; the important thing in Life is not triumph, but the struggle; the essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.“

— Pierre de Coubertin
Context: The important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win, but to take part; the important thing in Life is not triumph, but the struggle; the essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well. To spread these principles is to build up a strong and more valiant and, above all, more scrupulous and more generous humanity. As quoted in The Olympian (1984) by Peter L. Dixon, p. 210

„Winning medals wasn’t the point of the Olympics. It’s the participating that counts.“

— Pierre de Coubertin
As quoted in "The Olympics — Where Are They Headed?", in Awake! magazine (8 February 1977)

„A better world could be brought about only by better individuals.“

— Pierre de Coubertin
As quoted in "Attaining the Ideals", in Awake! magazine (8 September 2000)

„I therefore think that I was right in trying from the outset of the Olympic revival to rekindle a religious awareness.“

— Pierre de Coubertin
Stated in the year before he died, as quoted in "The Olympics, Sports and Religion — Is There a Conflict?", in Awake! magazine (8 September 2000)
