Victory

Henry David Thoreau

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.

Malcolm S. Forbes

Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.

G. K. Chesterton

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

G.K. Chesterton

Fairy tales do not give the child his first idea of bogey. What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of bogey. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon.

Orrin Woodward

Find a victory in every defeat to remain hopeful and find a defeat in every victory to remain humble.

Orrin Woodward

A person who cannot handle setbacks will never handle victories either.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.
