Quote of the Day
Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.
If you take no risks, you will suffer no defeats. But if you take no risks, you win no victories.
Richard M. Nixon
My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories.
Let us ever remember that our interest is in concord, not in conflict; and that our real eminence rests in the victories of peace, not those of war.
What I think a lot of great marathon runners do is envision crossing that finish line. Visualization is critical. But for me, I set a lot of little goals along the way to get my mind off that overwhelming goal of 26.2 miles. I know I've got to get to 5, and 12, and 16, and then I celebrate those little victories along the way.
There are victories of the soul and spirit. Sometimes, even if you lose, you win.
For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.

The real and lasting victories are those of peace, and not of war.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don't settle for them.
There are many victories worse than a defeat.

The difficulties and struggles of today are but the price we must pay for the accomplishments and victories of tomorrow.
William J. H. Boetcker
The obviously inexperienced pilot is the game the scientific air-fighter goes after, and the majority of victories are won that way. But, on the other hand, it is the novice usually who gets the famous ace by doing at some moment the unexpected thing.

There are some defeats more triumphant than victories.
Michel de Montaigne
Real victories are those that protect human life, not those that result from its destruction or emerge from its ashes.
King Hussein I
With every job I've gotten, I've bought myself something. When 'Glee' was picked up, I rented a piano for the year. For smaller victories, I'll go to dinner with a friend, or go for a walk and think about it all. It's important to say to yourself, Today was a good day.
For a man to conquer himself is the first and noblest of all victories.
We do not rejoice in victories. We rejoice when a new kind of cotton is grown and when strawberries bloom in Israel.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
