Remember no man is really defeated unless he is discouraged.
The sounds she heard bouncing off the walls around her were those of defeat.
Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.
Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.
Revenge is self-defeating. It will eat away you until there is nothing left.
To be defeated, but not to give in, is victory.- Jósef Piłsudski
Life as a defeated warrior with dignity is lot better than the king ruling without it.
War is grounded in the notion of triumph and defeat. It is zero-sum.
