Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll;Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.
The world is a game of chess; the loser loses and the winner wins.jamal al-din al-afghani
Well, I think comparing Common Lisp to Scheme is prima facie evidence of ill will, even if Common Lisp wins. It is somewhat like a supposed compliment like "man, you are even smarter than George W. Bush".erik naggum
Slow and steady wins the race.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.Michael Jordan
We lost sight of one of the cardinal maxims of guerrilla war: the guerrilla wins if he does not lose. The conventional army loses if it does not win.
When two equally matched armiesmeet, it isthemanof sorrow who wins.Lao-Tzu
Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll; Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.Alexander Pope
This, we have to say it, remember this is just a football game, no matter who wins or loses. An unspeakable tragedy, confirmed to us by ABC News in New York City: John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the West Side of New York City, the most famous, perhaps, of all of The Beatles, shot twice in the back, rushed to Roosevelt Hospital, dead ... on ... arrival. Hard to go back to the game after that newsflash, which in duty bound, we had to take.howard cosell
If Kocharyan wins honestly, I will shake him by the hand tonight.karen demirchyan
In a revolution one wins or dies, if it is a real one.ernesto 'che' guevara
There's a direct relationship between the ballot box and the bread box, and what the union fights for and wins at the bargaining table can be taken away in the legislative halls.walter reuther
The struggle against demagoguery scarcely fits the St George-against-the-dragon myth. Our democratic St George goes out rather reluctantly with armor awry. The struggle is confused; our knight wins by no clean thrust of lance or sword, but the dragon somehow poops out, and decent democracy is victor.norman thomas
Who never wins can rarely lose,Who never climbs as rarely falls.john greenleaf whittier
I think that a good person can sometimes do wrong out of ignorance or weakness or wrong thinking, but when hard times come, the goodness wins out after all. And a bad person can often seem good and trustworthy for a long time, but when hard times come, the evil in him gets revealed.orson scott card
Utilitarianism had found [in Samuel Smiles’ Self-Help] its portrait gallery of heroes, inscribed with a vigorous exhortation to all men to strive in their image; this philistine romanticism established the bourgeois hero-prototype the penniless office-boy who works his way to economic fortune and this wins his way into the mercantile plutocracy.john carroll
If ever there comes a time when everyone you vote for wins and they do everything you think they should do, there will still be a gap between what is and what ought to be.bill clinton
Read as little as possible of literary criticism - such things are either partisan opinions, which have become petrified and meaningless, hardened and empty of life, or else they are just clever word-games, in which one view wins today, and tomorrow the opposite view. Works of art are of an infinite solitude, and no means of approach is so useless as criticism.Rainer Maria Rilke
Through such impressions one gathers oneself, wins oneself back from the exacting multiplicity, which speaks and chatters there (and how talkative it is!), and one slowly learns to recognize the very few Things in which something eternal endures that one can love and something solitary that one can gently take part in.Rainer Maria Rilke
As for why it's not particularly smart -- whether he wins or loses -- is because he just called a whole bunch of attention to some silly internet meme that clearly wants attention. Beck would have been better off just ignoring it. Instead, in legitimizing it by trying to take it down, many more people become aware of the meme -- and may start calling attention to situations where Beck (and others) make use of such tactics.

Political science is governed by five myths: (1) that it studies politics ; (2) that it is scientific; (3) that it is possible to study politics separated off from economics , sociology , psychology and history ; (4) that the state in our democratic capitalist society is politically neutral, i.e. available as a set of institutions and mechanisms to whatever group wins the election ; and (5) that political science, as a discipline , advances the cause of democracy .
Rules are rules. The house always wins. The Black Glove always wins.
Love thyself last: cherish those hearts that hate thee; Corruption wins not more than honesty. Still in thy right hand carry gentle peace, To silence envious tongues. Be just, and fear not: Let all the ends thou aim’st at, be thy country’s, Thy God’s, and truth’s; then if thou fall’st, O Cromwell, Thou fall’st a blessed martyr!
This is a team game and one man doesn’t win and one man doesn’t lose. In the end, the best team usually wins.wilt chamberlain
