A Quote by Stephen Vincent Benét on losing, love, medicine, names, and war

I have fallen in love with American names The sharp names that never get fat, The snakeskin titles of mining claims, The plumed war bonnet of Medicine Hat, Tucson and Deadwood and Lost Mule Flat.

A Quote by Spencer W. Kimball on beginning, humility, losing, and pride

When one becomes conscious of his great humility, he has already lost it. When one begins boasting of his humility, it has already become pride-the antithesis of humility.

A Quote by Sir William Davenant on blush, design, god, heaven, interest, losing, men, praise, prayer, rest, sacrifice, and world

Praise and Prayer PRAISE is devotion fit for mighty minds, The diff'ring world's agreeing sacrifice; Where Heaven divided faiths united finds: But Prayer in various discord upward flies. For Prayer the ocean is where diversely Men steer their course, each to a sev'ral coast; Where all our interests so discordant be That half beg winds by which the rest are lost. By Penitence when we ourselves forsake, 'Tis but in wise design on piteous Heaven; In Praise we nobly give what God may take, And are, without a beggar's blush, forgiven.

Sir William Davenant (1606 - 1668)

A Quote by Sir Henry Bulwer on losing and money

Whatever you lend let it be your money, and not your name. Money you may get again, and, if not, you may contrive to do without it; name once lost you cannot get again, and, if you cannot contrive to do without it, you had better never have been born.

Sir Henry Bulwer (1801 - 1872)
