Defeated

Famous quotes containing the word defeated:

    I have defeated them all.... I was left with some money to battle with the world when quite young, and at the present time have much to feel proud of.... The Lord gave me talent, and I know I have done good with it.... For my brains have made me quite independent and without the help of any man.
    Harriet A. Brown, U.S. inventor and educator. As quoted in Feminine Ingenuity, ch. 8, by Anne L. MacDonald (1992)

    Vanquished in life, his death
    By beauty made amends:
    The passing of his breath
    Won his defeated ends.
    Lionel Pigot Johnson (1867–1902)

    He who succeeds is a king; he who is defeated is a bandit.
    Chinese proverb.
