1,080.  Life is worth losing.  (Life’s Like That & Lose)  George Carlin

 

 

40,213.  When you are 4-0 up, you should never lose 7-1.  (Football & Lose)  Lawrie McMenemy

 

 

39,314.  How can I lose with the stuff I use?  (Boxing & Lose)  Muhammad Ali, interview Harry Carpenter

 

 

130.  I would like to say that I didn’t lose a thing up until this very moment.  I haven’t lost one thing.  O have gained a lot.  Number one: I have gained a peace of mind.  I have gained a peace of heart.  I now know that I am in content with almighty God himself, whose proper name is Allah.  (God & Boxing & Lose)  Muhammad Ali

 

 

96,347.  ‘Just lost a fight, that’s all,’ he said after Joe Frazier had beaten him in Madison Square Garden a month after Bob Dylan’s 30th birthday.  ‘There are more important things to worry about in life.  Probably be a better man for it.  News don’t last long.’  (Boxing & Lose)  Bob Mee, Simply a Hero

 

 

96,386.  The losing fighter loses more than just his pride in the fight.  He loses part of his future.  He’s a step closer to the slum he came from.  Floyd Patterson 

 

 

96,415.  But we don’t win eventually.  Even if everything goes our way, we will lose the big one in the end.  The Fix is in.  The only intimations we have for the ultimate defeat are the knockdowns and bad decisions we suffer along the way.  Positive thinking be damned, I loved the losers.  (Boxing & Lose)  Bruce Toperoff, ‘Ree-Jected’ 

 

 

96,416.  I worry very much about the fellow who is going to lose, which is neither sophisticated nor practical ... Losing a prizefight has always seemed to me the ultimate disaster for an athlete.  (Boxing & Lose & Fear)  George Plimpton, ‘The Greatest is Gone’

 

96,417.  But he doesn’t.  The loser works up a ghastly grin for his opponent during the embrace; he accepts having his hair tousled with the heel of the other fellow’s glove.  A J Liebling once offered an interesting explanation for this behaviour: that the fighter, whatever the outcome, always ‘feels good’ after it was over.  ‘A fighter’s hostilities are not turned inward, like a Sunday tennis player’s or a lady MPs ... they come out naturally with his sweat, and when his job is done he feels good because he has expressed himself.’  (Boxing & Lose)  ibid.

 

96,418.  A fighter named Joe Grim, a second-rate boxer in the early part of the century whose forte was the ability to take punishment, would totter to the ropes at the end of a fight whatever his state, and call out to the crowd: ‘I am Joe Grim!  I fear no man on earth!’  (Boxing & Lose & Fear)  ibid.

 

 

96,419.  They never asked Vinton Hammock to make a television commercial, never wanted his smiling face hawking barbecued chicken or lottery tickets.  All anyone ever wanted Vint for was his fists and his chin and his willingness to get hit for a buck.  He was a pug, an opponent, the guy who shows up with a carload of confreres in your home town, battling local heroes and usually losing.  Then on again, a couple of hundred dollars richer, the next stop always the same.  With little talent and few options, the road continues until, beaten a few too many times, they don’t want you even for losing.  (Boxing & Lose)  Stephen Brunt, ‘A Break for the Opponent’

 

96,420.  As he is pounded almost senseless in the final round, with the crowd chanting ‘Shaun, Shaun, Shaun’, the referee again gives him the option to stop.  But at the final bell, Vint Hammock is still standing, $1,000 richer, and Shawn O’Sullivan is a pro, an undefeated pro.  He has won every round and earned at least 40 times more than his opponent for the same 18 minutes of work.  ‘Believe me, we were concerned about this fight,’ Mike Trainer told disbelieving local reporters, who tabbed Hammock ‘a moving punching bag’.  (Boxing & Lose)  ibid.

 

 

2,103.  Life is about losing.  We’re all losing: lovers, fathers, mothers, hair, teeth, friends.  Take life away.  It’s too hard.  It’s too difficult.  We aren’t any good at it.  (Life’s Like That & Lose)  Martin Amis, Money, BBC production 2010

 

 

20,236.  It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.  (GBH Films & Lose)  Fight Club ***** 1999 starring Edward Norton & Brad Pitt & Helena Bonham Carter & Meatloaf & Jared Leto et al, director David Fincher

 

 

20,469.  The good thing about losing everything was there was nothing else left to lose.  (GBH Films & Lose)  The Business 2005 starring Danny Dyer & Tamer Hassan & Geoff Bell & Georgina Chapman & Linda Henry & Roland Manookian & Camille Coduri & Andy Parfitt et al, director Nick Love

 

 

20,586.  How can I lose?  I mean how can I lose?  (GBH Films & Lose & Pool)  The Hustler 1961 starring Paul Newman & Jackie Gleason & Piper Laurie & George C Scott & Myron McCormick & Murray Hamilton & Stefan Gierasch et al, director Robert Rossen, Fast Eddie to all

 

 

20,917.  A new and cold reality dawns.  A fact that we like to ignore.  You cannot.  The only prize they guarantee when you play this game is that you will lose.  (GBH Films & Loss)  Revolver 2005 starring Jason Statham & Ray Liotta & Andre Benjamin & Vincent Pastore & Mark Strong & Terrence Maynard & Francesca Annis et al, director Guy Ritchie, Jake’s commentary

 

 

21,075.  Never fuck with a guy with nothing to lose.  (GBH Films & Lose)  Adulthood 2008 starring Noel Clarke & Adam Deacon & Scarlett Alice Johnson & Femi Oyeniran & Red Madrell & Jacob Anderson & Ben Drew & Wil Johnson & Nathan Constance & Adjoa Andoh & Madeleine Fairley et al, director Noel Clarke, geezer

 

 

21,416.  Everything’s gone: wife, job, bank accounts, everything.  (GBH Films & Loss)  Enemy of the State 1998 starring Will Smith & Gene Hackman & Jon Voight & Barry Pepper & Regina King & Ian Hart & Lisa Bonet & Jascha Washington & James LeGros & Jake Busey & Scott Caan & Jamie Kennedy & Jason Lee & Gabriel Byrne & Loren Dean et al, director Tony Scott, Robert to cab driver

 

 

21,494.  You look lost; so am I.  (GBH Films & Loss & Film Noir)  Outside the Wall 1950 starring Richard Basehart & Marilyn Maxwell & Signe Hasso & Dorothy Hart & Joseph Pevney & Lloyd Gough & Harry Morgan & John Hoyt et al, director Crane Wilbur, broad to Larry in bar

 

 

21,973.  You’re a three-time loser, Tony.  (GBH Films & Loss & Film Noir)  Kansas City Confidential 1952 starring John Payne & Coleen Gray & Lee van Cleef & Jack Elam & Preston Foster & Neville Brand & Dona Drake & Mario Siletti & Carleton Younget et al, director Phil Karlson, bloke in mask

 

 

22,856.  I’ve lived and I’ve loved and I’ve lost.  (GBH Films & Loss)  Lights of New York 1928 starring Helene Costello & Cullen Landis & Mary Carr & Wheeler Oakman & Gladys Brockwell & Robert Elliott & Eugene Pallette et al, director Bryan Foy, Molly

 

 

23,384.  We lost; we’ll always lose.  (Western & Loss)  The Magnificent Seven 1960 starring Steve McQueen & Yul Brynner & Charles Bronson & Robert Vaughn & Brad Dexter & Eli Wallach & Horst Buchholz & Vladimir Sokoloff et al, director John Sturges

 

 

23,566.  I never lose.  Lose completely.  (GBH Films & Loss)  Le Samourai 1967 starring Alain Delon & Francois Perier & Nathalie Delon & Cathy Rosier & Jacques Leroy & Michael Boisrond & Robert Favart & Jean-Pierre Posier & Catherine Joudan et al, director Jean-Pierre Melville, Jef to card players
