Explore the value of Strength
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
James Bryant Conant
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
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.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
John F. Kennedy
We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.
Antoine de Sainte-Exupery

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.
