Explore the value of Strength
These are days when no one should rely unduly on his “competence.” Strength lies in improvisation. All the decisive blows are struck left-handed.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
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
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strengths and resolutions.
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.
Antoine de Sainte-Exupery

"A weak man is not as happy as the same man would be if he were strong." -Mark Rippetoe
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.
