Strength Quotes

Wondrous is the strength of cheerfulness, and its power of endurance - the cheerful man will do more in the same time, will do it better, will preserve it longer, than the sad or sullen.

Thomas Carlyle

Henry Tuckerman

Endurance is nobler than strength and patience than beauty.

John Ruskin

We are parlor soldiers. The rugged battle of fate, where strength is born, we shun.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Maria W. Chapman

Life is not a continuum of pleasant choices, but of inevitable problems that call for strength, determination, and hard work

Indian Proverb

In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.

Laurence Sterne

Solitude is strength; to depend on the presence of the crowd is weakness. The man who needs a mob to nerve him is much more alone than he imagines.

Paul Brunton

When one begins to work in order to bestow, and this goes against ones nature, this is called "toil," since the body (refers to ones wills and desires) opposes it, being that any movement which the body does not see that it will be use for itself, it opposes with all of its strength, and tremendous powers are needed to overcome it.

Baruch Shalom Ashlag

Love in the abstract is not enough for a great man in poverty; he has need of its utmost devotion... She who is really a wife, one in heart, flesh, and bone, must follow wherever he leads, in whom her life, her strength, her pride, and happiness are centered.

Honor de Balzac

Strength lies not in defense but in attack

Adolf Hitler

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

You gain strength, experience and confidence by every experience where you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you cannot do.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Suffering makes us capable of the full force of the Master of Delight; it makes us capable also to bear the utter play of the Master of Power. Pain is the key that opens the gates of strength; it is the high-road that leads to the city of beatitude.

Sri Aurobindo

To excite opposition and inflame malevolence is the unhappy privilege of courage made arrogant by consciousness of strength

Robert Reich

Distance tests a horse's strength. Time reveals a person's character.

Chinese Proverbs

When I would recreate myself, I seek the darkest wood, the thickest and the most interminable, and to the citizen, most dismal swamp. I enter the swamp as a sacred place--a sanctum sanctorum; there is the strength, the marrow of Nature.

Henry David Thoreau

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul alike.

John Muir

(Michael Astroff) says that forests are the ornaments of the earth, that they teach mankind to understand beauty and attune his mind to lofty sentiments. Forests temper a stern climate, and in countries where the climate is milder, less strength is wasted in the battle with nature, and the people are kind and gentle.
