"Victory is the beautiful, bright-colored flower. Transport is the stem without which it could never have blossomed."
Winston Churchill

". . . You ask, What is our policy? I will say; It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory ? victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival."
Winston Churchill
The courses of the Victory were absorbed into the main, then her topsails went, and then her top-gallants. She was now no more than a dead fly?s wing on a sheet of spider?s web; and even this fragment diminished. Anne could hardly bear to see the end, and yet she resolved not to flinch. The admiral?s flag sank behind the watery line, and in a minute the very trunk of the last main-mast stole away. The Victory was gone.
Thomas Hardy

". . . He had by now divested himself of schoolboy attitudes. He was unburdened by the desire to be a martyr or a hero. Any thoughts in that direction, Belgica effectively had quashed. Heroism in the corrupt sense of the age almost by definition, meant wanton self-sacrifice and bungling. For neither had he any taste. He wanted rational attainment; victory, but not at any price. No point upon the globe was worth the cost of a single life."
Roland Huntford

"What excites and interests the looker-on at life, what the romances and the statues celebrate, and the grim civic monuments remind us of, is the everlasting battle of the powers of light with those of darkness; with heroism reduced to its bare chance, yet ever and anon snatching victory from the jaws of death."
William James

"Our cause, then, must be intrusted to, and conducted by, its own undoubted friends ? those whose hands are free, whose hearts are in the work ? who do care for the result. Two years ago the Republicans of the nation mustered over thirteen hundred thousand strong. We did this under the single impulse of resistance to a common danger, with every external circumstance against us. Of strange, discordant, and even, hostile elements, we gathered from the four winds, and formed and fought the battle through, under the constant hot fire of a disciplined, proud, and pampered enemy. Did we brave all then to falter now? ? now when that same enemy is wavering, dissevered, and belligerent? The result is not doubtful. We shall not fail ? if we stand firm, we shall not fail. Wise councils may accelerate or mistakes delay it, but, sooner or later, the victory is sure to come."
Abraham Lincoln

"Defeat may serve as well as victory to shake the soul and let the glory out."
Edwin Markham

"It is not enough to fight. It is the spirit which we bring to the fight that decides the issue. It is morale that wins the victory."
General George Marshall

"It is the fight alone that pleases us, not the victory."
Blaise Pascal

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt
