Anna Freud (1895 - 1982)

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)
If we resist our passions, it is more due to their weakness than our strength,
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
We all have enough strength to endure the misfortunes of others.
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.
