Famous quotes containing the word victory:

    The obscure only exists that it may cease to exist. In it lies the opportunity of all victory and all progress. Whether it call itself fatality, death, night, or matter, it is the pedestal of life, of light, of liberty and the spirit. For it represents resistance—that is to say, the fulcrum of all activity, the occasion for its development and its triumph.
    Henri-Frédéric Amiel (1821–1881)

    In social halls a favored guest
    In years that follow victory won,
    How sweet to feel your festal fame
    In woman’s glance instinctive thrown:
    Repose is yours—your deed is known,
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    When the people contend for their liberty they seldom get anything by their victory but new masters.
    George Savile, Lord Halifax (1633–1695)
