Victory Quotes

The first and the best victory is to conquer self.

Plato

The Way of Heaven does not compete, And yet it skillfully achieves victory. It does not speak, and yet it skillfully responds to things. It comes to you without your invitation

Lao-Tzu

The struggle to save the global environment is in one way much more difficult than the struggle to vanquish Hitler, for this time the war is with ourselves. We are the enemy, just as we have only ourselves as allies. In a war such as this, then, what is victory and how will we recognize it?

Al Gore

An eastern contemporary, with a grain of wisdom in its wit, says that "when the whites win a fight, it is a victory, and when the Indians win it, it is a massacre."

Lyman Frank Baum

It's not victory if it doesn't end the war.

Michel de Montaigne

Confidence is half of victory.

Yiddish Proverb

The Supreme Court has not closed the doors of justice to the detainees imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay. This is a major victory for the rule of law and affirms the right of every person, citizen or non-citizen, detained by the United States to test the legality of his or her detention in a U.S. Court.

Michael Ratner

Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more.

Louis L'Amour

Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.

Winston Churchill

It is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys.

Antoine De Saint-Exupery

Every great achievement is the victory of a flaming heart.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Accept the challenges, so you may feel the exhilaration of victory.

George S. Patton

There's an old saying that victory has hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy

A masterful retreat is itself a victory.

Norman Vincent Peale

A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory.

Arthur Golden

The first thing to do is to break the circuit between bile and brain by resolutely turning oneís thoughts away from the vexatious subject. This does not means finding convincing arguments, but simply breaking off the contact by, for example, forcing oneself to careful observation of some object or another. When the train of thought has thus been redirected, a few moments of mediation will prevent the reaction of the bile from continuing. This small act of control has the highest importance, for it ensures that when the anarchistic Automaton attacks the conscious self, victory shall go to the latter

Isha De Lubicz

Some men give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal; While others, on the contrary, obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than ever before.

Herodotus

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat

Teddy Roosevelt

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat

Teddy Roosevelt

In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time

Robert Collier

Our every action is a battle cry against imperialism, and a battle hymn for the people's unity against the great enemy of mankind: the United States of America. Wherever death may surprise us, let it be welcome, provided that this, our battle cry, may have reached some receptive ear, that another hand may be extended to wield our weapons, and that other men be ready to intone our funeral dirge with the staccato singing of the machine guns and new battle cries of war and victory.

Ernesto Che Guevara

In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves… self-discipline with all of them came first.

Harry S. Truman

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

Buddha

The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.
