Veni, vidi, vici.
It takes twenty years to make an overnight success.
Victory has a hundred fathers, but no one wants to recognise defeat as his own.
The important thing in life is not the victory but the contest; the essential thing is not to have won, but to have fought well.
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.
In no victory do they glory so much as in that which is gained by dexterity and good conduct without bloodshed.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in that grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.
There is always victory when there is agreement.
Where there is unity there is always victory.
The general who wins a battle makes many calculations ... here the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory, and few to defeat.
