The object of war is victory; that of victory is conquest; and that of conquest preservation.
Charles de Secondat
We're not trying to reinvent the wheel; for any environmental organization to claim sole responsibility for any kind of victory is insane, because everybody attacks these problems as a group.
The bomb and the entrance of the Russians into the war will certainly have an effect on hastening the victory.
Henry L. Stimson
In coming to that agreement, my party had a clear philosophy throughout. In Northern Ireland, we should have institutions that respected the differences of the people and that gave no victory to either side.
Workaholics typically have a lot of achievement with very little appreciation of what they have, whether it's cars or friendships or otherwise. That is a shallow victory. Then you have people with a lot of appreciation and no achievement, which is fine, but it doesn't create a lot of good in the world.
We now have contestants who will not let anything get in their way of victory. Some contestants have thrown each other under the bus this season.
We know over very national survival is at stake; and we believe that we should support our troops, yes, and work for an outcome that results in victory.
J. D. Hayworth

Ludwig von Mises
I don't think it's a low point being in the finals of the French Open, three points away from the victory.
Politics is never a victory, it's just the remorseless grinding forward of events.
We have made major reforms in Greece. When I took over after a landslide victory we had a mandate for change and I knew my major focus would be re-organizing the state.

I think this could be our best victory over Germany since the war.
The House passage of our bill is a victory for this country! Common sense wins out. I'm just so thrilled and excited. The sale of guns must stop. Halfway measures are not enough.
