A Quote by Jeanette Winterson on play, win, lose, love, risk, and value

You play, you win, you play, you lose. You play. It’s the playing that’s irresistible. Dicing from one year to the next with the things you love, what you risk reveals what you value.

Jeanette Winterson

A Quote by John Clellon Holmes on life, heal, lose, wise, and maim

    And just then he realized in a flash that men have only this sad knowledge with which to heal themselves:  when you lose life, you grow wise.  But that is better than maiming life to hold it.

A Quote by Oliver Stone on zero-sum, lose, loser, win, competitive, competition, compete, winner, winners, and losers

The zero-sum game: that's the way it is if you're a competitive person and you see capitalism in that way. Zero-sum game implies winners and losers which I don't agree with. Somebody has to win and somebody has to lose, it all comes back to zero (minus eight, plus eight). But I don't agree with that because all boats can rise on a rising sea. Good films can help other films to be open. There's a different psychology at work. If you're overly competitive, you'll be exclusionary and say it's a zero-sum game (I must get eight and he must lose eight). Gekko simplifies it down to a painting. He says he bought this painting or this building for X and he sold it for Y and he made that profit and he assumes that somebody else got beat, but that's not necessarily true. You don't always lose.
