I heard a poem read on the Michael Savage show that said something like;

"Great defeat and triumph with the same skepticisum."

Those are not the actual words but they convey the same meaning.

Are these the lines you remember?

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same

They are from 'If' by Rudyard Kipling. You can find the whole poem through the Classical Poet List link at the top of this page.
