Quote of the Day
If we accept the notion that terrorists will have immunity because as they fire on civilians they hide behind civilians, then this tactic will be legitimized and the terrorists will have their greatest victory.
War is a series of catastrophes which result in victory.
Days will prove that the assassination policy will not finish the Hamas. Hamas leaders wish to be martyrs and are not scared of death. Jihad will continue and the resistance will continue until we have victory, or we will be martyrs.
Vengeance is not the point; change is. But the trouble is that in most people's minds the thought of victory and the thought of punishing the enemy coincide.
My winning is getting to perform. That's my victory.
As someone who worked hard for a Labour victory in the 90s, do I regret it? Not really. It was bound to happen. And it'll happen with the next government, and the one after it. Because all governments serve us. They serve the filth.
Concentration and mental toughness are the margins of victory.
Some men give up their designs when they have almost reached the goal; While others, on the contrary, obtain a victory by exerting, at the last moment, more vigorous efforts than ever before.
Peace is not the product of a victory or a command. It has no finishing line, no final deadline, no fixed definition of achievement. Peace is a never-ending process, the work of many decisions.
Oscar Hammerstein II
It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.
Richard M. DeVos
What I heard was that Bush is now positioned to have victory after victory. He'll have Social Security reform passed, that he'll have tax reform passed, that he'll have conservative judges on the courts.
The important thing in life is not victory but combat; it is not to have vanquished but to have fought well.
Pierre de Coubertin
Every moment of resistance to temptation is a victory.
Frederick William Faber
The victory march will continue until the Palestinian flag flies in Jerusalem and in all of Palestine.
I learned this about coaching: You don't have to explain victory and you can't explain defeat.
To be prepared is half the victory.
Miguel de Cervantes
It is a law of human nature that in victory even the coward may boast of his prowess, while defeat injures the reputation even of the brave.
No matter how hard the loss, defeat might serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out.
The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory.
Hurtling the Pentagon into an unprecedented budgetary meltdown is horrifically irresponsible. Obama doesn't care. This is war - not against the Taliban, but war against the GOP. He has Republicans on the ropes, and that's a victory he savors and desires - unlike Afghanistan, where he seems only to want to turn tail.
Is victory sweet because your side wins - or is it really because the other side loses?
Obama's victory in November 2008 was a historic political accomplishment.
Do not get elated at any victory, for all such victory is subject to the will of God.
Obama seemed poised to realign American politics after his stunning 2008 victory. But the economy remains worse than even the administration's worst-case scenarios, and the long legislative battles over health care reform, financial services reform and the national debt and deficit have taken their toll. Obama no longer looks invincible.
Dee Dee Myers
If it is nothingness that awaits us, let us make an injustice of it; let us fight against destiny, even though without hope of victory.

Barack Obama won a second term but no mandate. Thanks in part to his own small-bore and brutish campaign, victory guarantees the president nothing more than the headache of building consensus in a gridlocked capital on behalf of a polarized public.
Andrew Jackson was the first president to claim that the desires of the public overrode Congress's constitutional prerogatives. Virtually every president since Jackson has claimed the mantle, even while lacking two ingredients of an electoral mandate: a landslide victory and a specific agenda.
A concrete agenda and landslide victory might not even guarantee a president his mandate in a capital as polarized as Washington.
