71,332.  The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.  (Enemy & Defeat)  Sun Tzu

 

 

9,568.  The greatest test of courage on the Earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.  (Courage & Defeat)  Robert Ingersoll

 

 

29,714.  Defeat doesn’t finish a man, quit does.  A man is not finished when he’s defeated.  He’s finished when he quits.  (Nixon & Defeat)  Richard Nixon

 

 

69,684.  You’ve got to learn to survive a defeat.  That’s when you develop character.  (Defeat & Nixon)  Richard Nixon

69,686.  Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.  F Scott Fitzgerald                                                 

 

 

62,480.  There is no better than adversity.  Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.  (Adversity & Defeat)  Malcolm X

 

 

69,687.  But man is not made for defeat.  A man can be destroyed but not defeated.  Ernest Hemingway

 

 

69,688.  Defeat should never be a source of discouragement but rather a fresh stimulus.  Robert South

 

 

69,689.  Somewhere in the world there is a defeat for everyone.  Some are destroyed by defeat, and some made small and mean by victory.  Greatness lives in one who triumphs equally over defeat and victory.  John Steinbeck, The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights

 

 

69,691.  He had an idea that even when beaten he could steal a little victory by laughing at defeat.  John Steinbeck, East of Eden

92,638.  Victor has a hundred fathers, but defeat is an orphan.  (Victory & Defeat)  Count Galeazzo Ciano 1903-44

 

 

95,174.  It is the moment when our resolution seems about to become irrevocable – when the fatal iron gates are about to close upon us – that tests our strength.  Then, after hours of clear reasoning and firm conviction, we snatch at any sophistry that will nullify our long struggles, and bring us the defeat that we love better than victory.  (Reason & Defeat & Commitment)  George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss

 

 

40,252.  He had defenders swarming around him like a wet blanket.  (Football & Defence)  Gerry Armstrong
