Defeated Mount Isa

Famous quotes containing the words defeated and/or mount:

    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)

    But mount to paradise
    By the stairway of surprise.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
