Explore the value of Strength
Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strengths and resolutions.
Whoever you are, whatever your dream, you have to be strong in your head and strong in your heart. Be strong. There's no quitting in the person who wants it bad enough.
The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
M. Scott Peck
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Antoine de Sainte-Exupery
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
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.
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.
We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
John F. Kennedy

My hero is my husband. Without his support and encouragement, I would have never gone back to school in my 40's.

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.
