just as


Han, who's holding a martial arts tournament, invites Williams to his study and tells him he fought well yesterday and that his style is unorthodox.
Williams: But effective.
Han: It is not the art but the combat you enjoy.
Williams: The winning.
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.
Enter the Dragon, film

    Everybody likes to win. In the same way that everyone is born to live.

    It's natural, you don't have to learn it or work at it. Both these things are innate.
