Defeated

Famous quotes containing the word defeated:

    For us artists there waits the joyous compromise through art with all that wounded or defeated us in daily life; in this way, not to evade destiny, as the ordinary people try to do, but to fulfil it in its true potential—the imagination.
    Lawrence Durrell (1912–1990)

    If I am defeated for the next nomination, I think it will be by [Charles Evans] Hughes. And I don’t think he will allow his name to be used unless he really feels that I have no chance to win. I do not think Theodore Roosevelt will allow his name to come before the convention.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    Every new stroke of civilization has cost the lives of countless brave men, who have fallen defeated by the “dragon,” in their efforts to win the apples of the Hesperides, or the fleece of gold. Fallen in their efforts to overcome the old, half sordid savagery of the lower stages of creation, and win the next stage.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
