Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.
Our defeat at Leyte was tantamount to the loss of the Philippines. When you [the Allies] took the Philippines, that was the end of our resources.
There are some defeats more triumphant than victories.
Michel Eyquem de Montaigne
The problems of victory are more agreeable than those of defeat, but they are no less difficult.
Commonly, people believe that defeat is characterized by a general bustle and a feverish rush. Bustle and rush are the signs of victory, not of defeat. Victory is a thing of action. It is a house in the act of being built. Every participant in victory sweats and puffs, carrying the stones for the building of the house. But defeat is a thing of weariness, of incoherence, of boredom. And above all of futility.
Saint-Exupery, Antoine De
There are important cases in which the difference between half a heart and a whole heart makes just the difference between signal defeat and a splendid victory.
Boyd, A. H. K.
When the frustration of my helplessness seemed greatest, I discovered God's grace was more than sufficient. And after my imprisonment, I could look back and see how God used my powerlessness for His purpose. What He has chosen for my most significant witness was not my triumphs or victories, but my defeat.
Charles Caleb Colton
Social justice cannot be attained by violence. Violence kills what it intends to create.
John Paul II (Pope)
Wherever work is done, victory is attained.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Victory is sweetest when you've known defeat.
