In Atlantis Ego

Here I sit, with the realisation that, whereas men will say certain kinds of victory are important or that some victories are losses because not absolute, these things are not true. Victory is where you find it; victory is sometimes the avoidance of loss and sometimes the acknowledgement of truth.

Sometimes, the pagan poets saw this first. Shelley in his unbinding of Prometheus said, "This then is Life, Joy, Empire and Victory." They are all the same thing, given the right context.
