We may pass violets looking for roses. We may pass contentment looking for victory.
Every victory is also a defeat.
Failure is only postponed success as long as courage ‘coaches’ ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory.
The bud of victory is always in the truth.
If there be no enemy there’s no fight. If no fight, no victory and if no victory there is no crown.
Life always rides in strength to victory, not through internationalism… but only through the direct responsibility of the individual.
The pursuit of peace and progress cannot end in a few years in either victory or defeat. The pursuit of peace and progress, with its trials and its errors, its successes and its setbacks, can never be relaxed and never abandoned.
Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory.
Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
Invincibility lies in the defense; the possibility of victory in the attack.
All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.
As the rain falls and the sun shines, they grow, grow, grow; minds so open, they go through life aware and accepting, seeing light where there’s dark, seeing possibility in dead ends, tasting victory as others spit out failure, questioning where others accept. Just a little less jaded, a little less cynical.
Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory.
In war, when a commander becomes so bereft of reason and perspective that he fails to understand the dependence of arms on Divine guidance, he no longer deserves victory.
