Victory and defeat, gain and loss, happiness and distress—these are dualities in this material world. He who knows this is surprised neither by tragedy nor success.

A wise man sees victory and defeat like the passing of seasons. Dry and wet seasons come, and we learn to live with them.

He who conquers his false ego and pride is superior to someone who conquers an army.

A person learns to value his blessings when he’s faced with defeat.

Defeat awakens us from our limitations; it demonstrates the presence of a superior force in our midst.

Defeat tells us that we’re not the controllers of this world—neither of time nor destiny.

When we learn lessons from defeat, we gain more prized possessions than we can imagine!

A proud victor is simply a man overwhelmed by arrogance.
