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