The conqueror is regarded with awe; the wise man commands our respect; but it is only the benevolent man that wins our affection.
William Dean Howells
In a democracy there are only two types of power: there's organized people and organized money, and organized money only wins when people aren't organized.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
I don't think a coach becomes the right coach until he wins a championship.
Man, as long as he lives, is immortal. One minute before his death he shall be immortal. But one minute later, God wins.
When I was younger I was taught that a winner never quits, and a quitter never wins.
In real life, it is the hare who wins. Every time. Look around you. And in any case it is my contention that Aesop was writing for the tortoise market. Hares have no time to read. They are too busy winning the game.
Barack Obama's inspirational whoosh to the presidency in 2008 was unusual. Most campaigns are less exhilarating; indeed, they are downright disappointing - until someone wins.
Anything that could give rise to smarter-than-human intelligence - in the form of Artificial Intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, or neuroscience-based human intelligence enhancement - wins hands down beyond contest as doing the most to change the world. Nothing else is even in the same league.
A loser doesn't know what he'll do if he loses, but talks about what he'll do if he wins, and a winner doesn't talk about what he'll do if he wins, but knows what he'll do if he loses.

Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll; charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.
Slow but steady wins the race.
If you take your fear and mash it into something that's actually useful, then it doesn't feel like it wins.
You know those award shows. The cliche is that it's an honor just to be nominated, but that happens to be true. Whoever wins it in the end, I don't know, sometimes it feels arbitrary. Sometimes it feels like it's deserving.
Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.
Force may subdue, but love gains, and he that forgives first wins the laurel.
Now I see that going out into the testing ground of men it is the tongue and not the deed that wins the day.
To know a man, observe how he wins his object, rather than how he loses it; for when we fail, our pride supports us - when we succeed, it betrays us.
Charles Caleb Colton
You have to expect spiritual warfare whenever you stand up for righteousness or call attention to basic values. It's just a matter of light battling the darkness. But the light wins every time. You can't throw enough darkness on light to put it out.
If we try to engineer outcomes, if we overturn tradition to make everyone the same, we ruin society. If we upset tradition to allow for an equal shot at the starting gate, everyone wins, except for the charlatans and would be dictators.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
