Victory usually means 
Temporary peace.
But peace is
Eternity's victory.
Victory comes and victory goes. 
Defeat weeps and defeat lingers.
Experience soars and experience lasts.
The body's victory  
Is often
The soul's tremendous loss.
The soul's victory
Is always
The body's amazing progress.
I felt the victory  
Of the world-saviour: Peace.
I smiled and danced.  
I see the victory
Of the world-devourer: War.
I sigh and die.
your victory's crown
was possession.
your victory's crown
is renunciation.
your victory's crown
shall be liberation.
In the inner world  
Each victory is a help.
Each defeat is a help, too.
But each surrender to God's Will
Is a victory unparalleled,
A victory invincible.
God's Smile is the victory  
Of today's man.
Man's smile is the Victory
Of Eternity's God.
The victory of human love is confusing.  
The victory of divine love is illumining.
The victory of supreme love is fulfilling.
Victory and defeat are interwoven.
Do not try to separate them,
But try to go beyond them
If your heart longs for abiding peace.
