Famous quotes containing the word victory:

    ...I discovered that I could take a risk and survive. I could march in Philadelphia. I could go out in the street and be gay even in a dress or a skirt without getting shot. Each victory gave me courage for the next one.
    Martha Shelley, U.S. author and social activist. As quoted in Making History, part 3, by Eric Marcus (1992)

    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    [holds her by the hand, silent] O mother, mother!
    What have you done? Behold, the heavens do ope,
    The gods look down, and this unnatural scene
    They laugh at. O my mother, mother! O!
    You have won a happy victory to Rome;
    But, for your son, believe it—O, believe it—
    Most dangerously you have with him prevailed,
    If not most mortal to him.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
