Explore the value of Strength
Let us speak, though we show all our faults and weaknesses — for it is a sign of strength to be weak, to know it, and out with it.
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
To be capable of steady friendship or lasting love, are the two greatest proofs, not only of goodness of heart, but of strength of mind.
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result.
James Bryant Conant
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
John F. Kennedy
