Nothing is gained from competition with another.
No benefits come from comparison with another.
To compete with another is to welcome the state of personal inadequacy.
To compare yourself to another is the beginning of self devaluation.
Do you know who you are?
When you compete with him or her you are in fact attacking yourself.
You imagine you will defeat them yet the fact you accept a competitor means you have already defeated yourself.
Some men are near sighted. Some are far sighted. Some are blind. Thus the visual perspective varies. So it is with the creative and intellectual.
How can someone compete with you when they have never seen, tasted, felt, and loved what you have?
