During the Enron debacle, it was workers who took the pounding, not bankers. Not only did Enron employees lose their jobs, many lost their retirement savings. That's because they were at the bottom of the investing food chain.
It's a recession when your neighbor loses his job; it's a depression when you lose yours.
Harry S Truman
It's like a novelist writing far out things. If it makes a point and makes sense, then people like to read that. But if it's off in left field and goes over the edge, you lose it. The same with musical talent, I think.
If you're going to play at all, you're out to win. Baseball, board games, playing Jeopardy, I hate to lose.
Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal.
Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend.
John Singer Sargent
A nation may lose its liberties in a day and not miss them in a century.
Charles de Montesquieu
If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern.
Ursula K. Le Guin
You must lose everything in order to gain anything.
The best thing about acting is that I get to lose myself in another character and actually get paid for it... It's a great outlet. I'm not really sure who I am - it seems I change every day.
I think one of the major results of the psychology of decision making is that people's attitudes and feelings about losses and gains are really not symmetric. So we really feel more pain when we lose $10,000 than we feel pleasure when we get $10,000.
People have tried to corner the market on being offended, corner the market on language and corner the market on opinion. Should I lose my job 'cause I offended somebody? No, of course not. Your life should never be affected by public opinion.

Michael K. Powell
Also, stick around. Don't lose your heart, just keep going, keep at it.
'Life, Love & Hope' is... I'm thinking 'larger picture.' I'm not trying to preach to anyone. We all get lost and caught up in our everyday problems.

My grandmother died from Alzheimer's, and it was a big shock. For the families left behind, it is not an easy closure. It's not a gradual fading. The person is losing so much of their humanity as they're dying. Losing your memories, you lose so much of who you are as a person.
Beauty doesn't matter because in the end, we all lose our looks and all we have is our heart.
As tennis players, we work and we sacrifice many things. To lose, that's not a happy thing - I mean sure, I was disappointed. You have to come back strong. But to win the last point in a grand slam tournament, that's the most beautiful and most satisfying feeling you can get as a tennis player. It's worth it.
As soon as you make mistakes, or you have an off year, even if it's not your fault as a quarterback... I've always said the quarterback and the head coach always get too much blame when you lose and too much credit when you win.

If you start by promising what you don't even have yet, you'll lose your desire to work towards getting it.
