Famous quotes containing the word defeated:

    Stoop, angels, hither from the skies!
    There is no holier spot of ground
    Than where defeated valor lies,
    By mourning beauty crowned!

    The poet is he who fights on the passionate
    Side and whoever loses he wins; when he
    Is defeated it is hard to say who wins....

    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.
