Succeeded

Famous quotes containing the word succeeded:

    A religion so cheerless, a philosophy so sorrowful, could never have succeeded with the masses of mankind if presented only as a system of metaphysics. Buddhism owed its success to its catholic spirit and its beautiful morality.
    W. Winwood Reade (1838–1875)

    I never saw love as luck, as that gift from the gods which put everything else in place, and allowed you to succeed. No, I saw love as reward. One could find it only after one’s virtue, or one’s courage, or self-sacrifice, or generosity, or loss, has succeeded in stirring the power of creation.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)

    It seems as if an age of genius must be succeeded by an age of endeavour; riot and extravagance by cleanliness and hard work.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)
