Famous quotes containing the word contest:

    The contest between the Future and the Past is one between Divinity entering, and Divinity departing. You are welcome to try your experiments, and, if you can, to displace the actual order by that ideal republic you announce, of nothing but God will expel God.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    You may be always victorious if you will never enter into any contest where the issue does not wholly depend upon yourself.
    Epictetus (c. 55–135)

    It is odd but agitation or contest of any kind gives a rebound to my spirits and sets me up for a time.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
