These violent delights have violent ends, And in their triumph die, like fire and powder Which, as they kiss, consume.
There is no reason why good cannot triumph as often as evil. The triumph of anything is a matter of organization. If there are such things as angels, I hope that they are organized along the lines of the Maffia.[William Niles Rumfoord]
Somewhere in the world there is 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.
He had slipped, climbed, rolled, searched, walked, persevered, that is all. Such is the secret of all triumphs.
