“The purpose of life is to be defeated…” Rainer Maria Rilke

Victory is never guaranteed, and even then what about progress?

This quote tells a story, a great story: The story of life, of never giving up even after you’ve been defeated by tougher and tougher foes.

But someday we all must die; the final defeat.

Ah, but what a life!

This quote the other way around, of greater and greater victories, does nothing for the soul and little for the aesthetic. So what? Winner’s win. And then they still die. Nothing new there. Predictable.

Give me a loser that never gave up over another dead winner any day. Everybody can relate to that. Even the champion is defeated every day in pursuit of his ideal. Better, better, better but not quite good enough ever. That’s a champion, that’s a loser, that’s life and that’s this quote.
