Some Thoughts On Defeat From Various Authors

“Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat.”

Ralph Ellison

“My past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me; it has only strengthened me.”

Steve Maraboli

“Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. 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. More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.”

Napoleon Hill

“Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.”

Roger Crawford

“In the morning I brush my teeth with hope, and at night before bed I brush them with defeat. Both are mint flavored, so I try not to get them mixed up.
