Gained

Famous quotes containing the word gained:

    Life yields only to the conqueror. Never accept what can be gained by giving in. You will be living off stolen goods, and your muscles will atrophy.
    Dag Hammarskjöld (1905–1961)

    I’ve almost gained my heav’nly home; My spirit loudly sings;
    The holy ones behold they come, I hear the noise of wings.
    O come, angel band, Come and around me stand.
    O bear me away on your snowy wings, To my immortal home.
    T. Haskell, minister and hymn-writer. Published in Christian Harmony. “Angel Band,” l. 5-8.

    Cautiousness in judgment is nowadays to be recommended to each and every one: if we gained only one incontestable truth every ten years from each of our philosophical writers the harvest we reaped would be sufficient.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
