Rare Pairs Challenge: Day 37

Today's rare pair quote.

Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.
- William Faulkner (1897 - 1962)

Which of your rare pairs does this apply to? Are they in a constant battle to be better than someone before them or are they striving to be the best so that anyone before them pales in comparison?
