Victory of Defeat



Quote of the day:

When defeat is inevitable, it is wisest to yield.
-Quintilian


Sometimes defeat is inevitable....

Just like an army that is on the verge of losing a war...
Outnumbered, fatigued...

An army far outnumbered by the enemy lines....
A runner falling just before the finish lines....

It is the same for us all too-when the burdens of life become too overwhelming...
Those feelings of "not being able to go any further"....to make another step.

When defeat is inevitable...it is wisest to yield. It's okay to yield to defeat!
Call it a day, and walk away.
Wave the white flag....

I would like to think that the most victorious achievers in life- have at some point seen and yielded to defeat...just a thought.

If you are perfect...how can you ever become better?
You can't win all the time...just sometimes.

So i am sitting here thinking...

When defeat is inevitable...when i can't go on anymore.
It is wise I yield...
Tomorrow, defeat shall turn to victory.
No more defeats...just glory.

  2. Hmmmm...
    it sounds like quitting to me... why can't you give it your best till the very last step.
    I was told football teams are taught to play hard..even though they're getting slaughtered...that to me seems more dignified...

  9. are you a football person? Did you watch the game yesterday or if you even know soccer, think of Arsenal...in my opinion its only a victory of defeat if you fought gallantly, then only can you claim guilty and even your opponent will be in standing ovation for you...curious to see what you think about this

  10. Isn't this why that scripture says, "After you've done all, stand."

    The battle is not always ours :)
