Famous quotes containing the word win:

    We played a game you couldn’t win ... to the utmost.
    Gus Van Sant, U.S. screenwriter and director, and Dan Yost. Bob Hughes (Matt Dillon)

    Were not the right man on our side,
    The man of God’s own choosing.
    Dost ask who that may be?
    Christ Jesus, it is he,
    Lord Sabaoth is his name,
    From age to age the same,
    And he must win the battle.
    Martin Luther (1483–1546)

    In an age robbed of religious symbols, going to the shops replaces going to the church.... We have a free choice, but at a price. We can win experience, but never achieve innocence. Marx knew that the epic activities of the modern world involve not lance and sword but dry goods.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)
