Examples of victory in a Sentence

  1. Muhammadu Buhari:

  2. Theodore Roosevelt:

    The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood who strives valiantly who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause who at best, knows the triumph of high achievement and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

  3. Guillermo Delgado:

  5. Anthony Liccione:

    Had it not been for empty, there would have been nothing to fill. Nothing to struggle with,  strive for or dream. Although fulfillment is our ending destiny, it's the getting there that builds character. That puts muscle in faith, and sweats out victory. Vigilance is the empty, that pushes all our nothings into something.
