he laughs best who laughs last

he laughs best who laughs last

The person who has the final, decisive move or victory in a feud, quarrel, or competition is only one who is truly successful. After their disastrous attempt into the mobile phone market, I can't help but think of their CEO mocking their competitor's idea for smartphones not even a decade ago—and I guess he laughs best who laughs last. He may have won this round, but I'm going to come back with a vengeance in the final. He laughs best who laughs last. I've waited years to revenge myself on you and your family for what you did to me. And now, to see your entire empire in tatters, he laughs best who laughs last.
