Famous quotes containing the word contest:

    By his mere quiet power, on the minds of the now contestants, He could have either saved or destroyed the Union without a human contest. Yet the contest began. And having begun He could give the final victory to either side any day. Yet the contest proceeds.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It is odd but agitation or contest of any kind gives a rebound to my spirits and sets me up for a time.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
