"Commonly, people believe that defeat is characterized by a general bustle and a feverish rush. Bustle and rush are the signs of victory, not defeat. Victory is a thing of action. It is a house in the act of being built. Every participant in victory sweats and puffs , carrying the stones for the building of the house. But defeat is a thing of weariness, of incoherence, of boredom. and above all futility."
~Antoine de St~Exupery
