Strength Quotes

Moderate strength is shown in violence, supreme strength is shown in levity.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Leadership is mostly a power over imagination, and never more so than in combat. The bravest man alone can only be an armed lunatic. The real strength lies in the ability to get others to do your work.

Lois McMaster Bujold

It is a weak man who blames his failures on the strength of others.

Orson Scott Card

Like dew on drooping blossoms, Like breath from Holy place, Laden with health and healing, Come Thy deep words of grace: "Thy strength is all in leaning On One who fights for thee; Thine is the helpless clinging, And mine the victory."

Hetty Bowman

It is better to deny God, than to defy God. Sometimes our weakness is considered strength, and we take delight in borrowed greatness. To profess to be a lover of God and then to be dishonest to God, to the world and to himself, is unparalleled hypocrisy. Difficulties give us the opportunity to prove our greatness by overcoming them.

Meher Baba

Each blade of grass has its spot on earth whence it draws its life, its strength; and so is man rooted to the land from which he draws his faith together with his life.

Joseph Conrad

I hope that before your time on earth ends, as mine is now ending, you will find the strength of character to stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness.

Tomas Young

Our work for peace must begin within the private world of each one of us. To build for man a world without fear, we must be without fear. To build a world of justice, we must be just. And how can we fight for liberty if we are not free in our own minds? How can we ask others to sacrifice if we are not ready to do so?... Only in true surrender to the interest of all can we reach that strength and independence, that unity of purpose, that equity of judgment which are necessary if we are to measure up to our duty to the future, as men of a generation to whom the chance was given to build in time a world of peace.

Dag Hammarskjld

...as man under pressure tends to give in to physical and intellectual weakness, only great strength of will can lead to the objective.

Carl von Clausewitz

Strength and wisdom are not opposing values.

William Jefferson (Bill) Clinton

If failure has the strength to turn your life into bitterness itself, then patience has the strength to turn your life into the sweetest joy. Do not surrender to fate after a single failure. Failure, at most, precedes success.

Sri Chinmoy

Americas special strength lies not in frightening the weak and challenging the strong, but in strengthening the weak and illumining the strong.

Sri Chinmoy

The prosperity, and social vitality and technological progress of a people are directly determined by the extent of their liberty. Freedom honors and unleashes human creativity and creativity determines the strength and wealth of nations. Liberty is both the plan of Heaven for humanity, and the best hope for progress here on Earth.

George Walker Bush

Wisdom we know is the knowledge of good and evil not the strength to choose between the two.

John Cheever

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair but manifestations of strength and resolution.
