defeat

A Quote by Paul Garrett on beginning, business, defeat, employees, good, intention, managers, and security

Unless a business can stay in the black over the long term, averaging the bad years with good, it cannot sustain itself. A manager may have laudable social intentions of providing security for his employees, better products at lower prices for his customers. But if he cannot keep the business going in realizing these intentions he is defeated before he begins.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on defeat, effort, failure, and victory

Many a man has finally succeeded only because he has failed after repeated efforts. If he had never met defeat he would never have known any great victory.

A Quote by Olaf Stapledon on brevity, community, crisis, darkness, defeat, effort, guidance, love, play, praise, reality, struggle, and world

Two lights for guidance. The first, our little glowing atom of community, with all that it signifies. The second, the cold light of the stars, symbol of the hypercosmical reality, with its crystal ecstasy. Strange that in this light, in which even the dearest love is frostily asserted, and even the possible defeat of our half-waking world is contemplated without remission of praise, the human crisis does not lose but gains significance. Strange, that it seems more, not less, urgent to play some part in this struggle, this brief effort of animacules striving to win for their race some increase of lucidity before the ultimate darkness.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on defeat and facts

The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.

A Quote by Nikos Katzenzakis on books, christ, death, defeat, fear, fighting, pain, struggle, suffering, and temptation

This book was not written because I wanted to offer a supreme model to the man who struggles; I wanted to show him that he must not fear pain, temptation or death - because all three can be conquered, all three have already been conquered. Christ suffered pain, and since then pain has been sanctified. Temptation fought until the very last moment to lead him astray, and Temptation was defeated. Christ died on the Cross, and at that instant death was vanquished forever.

A Quote by Napoleon Hill on defeat, life, logic, majorities, men, and success

Before success comes in any man's life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do.

Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even
