->'''Founder:''' Have I? I think you'll find that neither the Jem'Hadar or the Breen will agree with that assessment. They will fight to the last man.
->'''Kira:''' And what will that accomplish?
->'''Founder:''' Isn't it obvious? You may win this war, Commander; but I promise you, when it is over, you will have lost so many ships, so many lives, that your victory will taste as bitter as defeat.

->''I mean, anybody who has beaten this [[NintendoHard incredibly hard]] piece of shit will not have any sense of satisfaction, but rather regrets, because it is a complete waste of fuckin' time. I mean, it's like coming out of a brutal fight, being the winner, but achieving nothing for all your troubles but some bloody bruises and broken bones. It's just not worth it.''

->''We "won" in so far as we just beat the [[OurMagesAreDifferent Traditions]] to the hearts and and minds (and [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney wallets]] and [[WrittenByTheVictors schools]]) of the [[{{Muggles}} populace]]. They're still out there, and we're still out there, and both groups are having a hell of a time with [[JustBeforeThe End all the shit that's come down on our heads lately]]. "Won" is such a stretch. We "won" the Ascension War much like [[TropeNamer Pyrrhus]] won.''
