Explore the value of Strength
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself.
Jean de La Fontaine
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
Maybe who we are isn't so much about what we do, but rather what we're capable of when we least expect it.
Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It's something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, nothing will stop him short of success.
Black Elk [Hehaka Sapa]

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.
