From one of my favorite moments of his as Williams in Enter the Dragon...
Han: We are all ready to win, just as we are born knowing only life. It is defeat that you must learn to prepare for.
Williams: I don't waste my time with it. When it comes, I won't even notice.
Han: Oh? How so?Williams: I'll be too busy looking gooood.
