Famous quotes containing the word contest:

    Another danger is imminent: A contested result. And we have no such means for its decision as ought to be provided by law. This must be attended to hereafter.... If a contest comes now it may lead to a conflict of arms. I can only try to do my duty to my countrymen in that case. I shall let no personal ambition turn me from the path of duty. Bloodshed and civil war must be averted if possible. If forced to fight, I have no fears from lack of courage or firmness.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    You may be always victorious if you will never enter into any contest where the issue does not wholly depend upon yourself.
    Epictetus (c. 55–135)

    The contest ends at midnight tonight
    But you can submit again, and again.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
