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)
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)
I count life just a stuff to try the soul's strength on.
Robert Browning (1812 - 1889)
True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself.
Henry Miller (1891 - 1980)
