Explore the value of Strength
Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
Henry Ward Beecher
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
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
Life has many ways of testing a person's will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Jean de La Fontaine
Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.

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.
