Neale Donald Walsch
A work of art when placed in a gallery loses its charge, and becomes a portable object or surface disengaged from the outside world.
Netanyahu is pressured easily, gets into a panic, and loses his senses... to run a country like Israel a leader needs to have reason and judgment and nerves of steel, two traits he does not have.

Faith is not a thing which one 'loses', we merely cease to shape our lives by it.
The Super Bowl is a game. Life is for real. What I went through helped me get to where I am today. I won't forget. I can't forget. Because a man who forgets his past sometimes loses his soul and forgets where to go in the future.
We picked the Red Sox because they lose. If you root for something that loses for 86 years, you're a pretty good fan. You don't have to win everything to be a fan of something.

Madeleine M. Kunin

In the 2000 presidential election, Al Gore got more votes than George W. Bush, but still lost the election.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
