Explore the value of Strength
We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time.
Old age is not a disease - it is strength and survivorship, triumph over all kinds of vicissitudes and disappointments, trials and illnesses.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
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
In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result.
TEACHING BY EXAMPLE
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

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.
