Most winners eventually quit and some quitters might have won before quitting.Vince Lombardi said it Not quitting in the sense of retiring from your sporting career but quitting in the sense of giving upEven in the "giving up" sense, it's still wrong. Surely there are some winners who, at some point in their career, gave up. They may have done so after winning or they may have done so earlier in their career before deciding to stage a come back and win.The condition of being a winner is time varying. The condition of giving up is also time varying. Neither has permanence and either can occur before or after the other.

Prominent is not the same as great?

Like the marathon - last bend and there are 6 Ethiopians on your tail.
