Explore the value of Strength
John F. Kennedy
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
When I dare to be powerful - to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
The art of being yourself at your best is the art of unfolding your personality into the person you want to be...Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others.
Wilferd A. Peterson
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
Antoine de Sainte-Exupery
Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is, who shall have sacrificed part of himself to his farm or country, fought to save it, struggled to make it beautiful. Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart.
Antoine de Sainte-Exupery
When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.

Austin Bray, Murray, Ky
Strength is not just a measurement of one's physical power but a measurement of one's personal determination, Strength is the ability to take hits towards your self and even if you may be knocked down as a result, strength determines one's abilities to not only get back up and brush off the blow, but to also keep pushing against the force that sought to bring you down.
