C. S. Lewis
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
John F. Kennedy
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.
Survival can be summed up in three words - never give up. That's the heart of it really. Just keep trying.
Luck is a very thin wire between survival and disaster, and not many people can keep their balance on it.
Hunter S. Thompson

The year 2100 will see eugenics universally established. In past ages, the law governing the survival of the fittest roughly weeded out the less desirable strains.

Resilience is all about being able to overcome the unexpected. Sustainability is about survival. The goal of resilience is to thrive.

J. C. Watts

Those of us who believe in God and derive our sense of right and wrong and ethics from God's Word really have no difficulty whatsoever defining where our ethics come from.

It goes without saying that when survival is threatened, struggles erupt between peoples, and unfortunate wars between nations result.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
