Challenges and strength Quotes

A powerful idea communicates some of its strength to him who challenges it

Marcel Proust

Our very strength as lesbians lies in the fact that we are outside of patriarchy; our existence challenges its life

Charlotte Bunch

American families have always shown remarkable resiliency, or flexible adjustment to natural, economic, and social challenges. Their strengths resemble the elasticity of a spider web, a gull's skillful flow with the wind, the regenerating power of perennial grasses, the cooperation of an ant colony, and the persistence of a stream carving canyon rocks. These are not the strengths of fixed monuments but living organisms. This resilience is not measured by wealth, muscle or efficiency but by creativity, unity, and hope. Cultivating these family strengths is critical to a thriving human community.
