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
I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time.
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.
Jean de La Fontaine
Maybe who we are isn't so much about what we do, but rather what we're capable of when we least expect it.
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
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

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.
