One cannot weep for the entire world, it is beyond human strength. One must choose.
Jean Anouilh (1910 - 1987)
My strength is my enthusiasm.
Patience is the support of weakness; impatience the ruin of strength.
Charles Colton (c.1780 - 1832)
Insincerity is always weakness; sincerity even in error is strength.
In solitude the mind gains strength and learns to lean upon itself.
Laurence Sterne (1713 - 1768)
We all have enough strength to endure the misfortunes of others.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility; for it thinks all things lawful for itself, and all things possible.
Power is not an institution, and not a structure; neither is it a certain strength we are endowed with; it is the name that one attributes to a complex strategical situation in a particular society.
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 - not in a set way and ostentatiously, though, but incidentally and without premeditation.
Herman Melville (1819 - 1891)
