Robert H. Schuller
It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.
It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up.
Special Olympics Motto
Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose - somehow we win out.
Never give up, never give in, and when the upper hand is ours, may we have the ability to handle the win with the dignity that we absorbed the loss.
Norman Vincent Peale
Never talk defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory.
No matter how hard the loss, defeat might serve as well as victory to shape the soul and let the glory out.
No one can defeat us unless we first defeat ourselves.
No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.
Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
