But if
  We have such another victory, we are undone.[Pyrrhus--[attributed to him by Bacon]} Victory, with advantage, is rather robbed than purchased.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

In victory, the hero seeks the glory, not the prey.

You win the victory when you yield to friends.
      - Sophocles

"But what good came of it at last?"

"It was the English," Kaspar cried,

"They said it was a shocking sight
  After the field was won;
    For many thousand bodies here
      Lay rotting in the sun;
        But things like that, you know, must be
          After a famous victory.
      - Robert Southey, The Battle of Blenheim

The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious.
      - Oswald Spengler

I love victory, but I love not triumph.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Victor and vanquished never unite in substantial agreement.
  [Lat., Victores victosque numquam solida fide coalescere.]
      - Tacitus (Caius Cornelius Tacitus), Annales
         (bk. II, 7)

To prefer victory to peace.
  [Lat., Victoriam malle quam pacem.]
      - Tacitus (Caius Cornelius Tacitus), Annales
         (bk. III, 60)

Victory goes to the player who makes the next-to-last mistake.
      - Savielly Grigorievitch Tartakower

There is nothing so dreadful as a great victory--except a great defeat.
      - attributed to Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington,
        ascribed to D'Argensonby as reported by Grimm, see Emerson "Quotation and Originality"

The smile of God is victory.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

It must be a peace without victory. . . . Victory would mean peace forced upon the loser; a victor's terms imposed upon the vanquished. It would be accepted in humiliation, under duress, at an intolerable sacrifice, and would leave a sting, a resentment, a bitter memory upon which terms of peace would rest, not permanently, but only as upon quicksand. Only a peace between equals can last: only a peace, the very principle of which is equality, and a common participation in a common benefit.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson,
        in an address to the U.S. Senate
