„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

„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)

„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)
