Won Gold

Famous quotes containing the words won and/or gold:

    I can not believe that war is the best solution. No one won the last war, and no one will win the next war.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

    In relation to God, we are like a thief who has burgled the house of a kindly householder and been allowed to keep some of the gold. From the point of view of the lawful owner this gold is a gift; From the point of view of the burglar it is a theft. He must go and give it back. It is the same with our existence. We have stolen a little of God’s being to make it ours. God has made us a gift of it. But we have stolen it. We must return it.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)
