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.
Men are beginning to realize that they are not individuals but persons in society, that man alone is weak and adrift, that he must seek strength in common action.
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
Saint Francis de Sales
Love you will find only where you may show yourself weak without provoking strength.
I know there is strength in the differences between us. I know there is comfort where we overlap.
I know that, like every woman of the people, I have more strength than I appear to have.
Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity.
Louis Pasteur (1822 - 1895)
The relationship to one's fellow man is the relationship of prayer, the relationship to oneself is the relationship of striving; it is from prayer that one draws the strength for one's striving.
Franz Kafka (1883 - 1924)
I count life just a stuff to try the soul's strength on.
Robert Browning (1812 - 1889)
