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)
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)
Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.
If we resist our passions, it is more due to their weakness than our strength,
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
