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)
True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself.
Henry Miller (1891 - 1980)
The man who is swimming against the stream knows the strength of it.
Woodrow Wilson (1856 - 1924)
From the depth of need and despair, people can work together, can organize themselves to solve their own problems and fill their own needs with dignity and strength.
We draw our strength from the very despair in which we have been forced to live. We shall endure.
He is greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887)
Those who have the strength and the love to sit with a dying patient in the silence that goes beyond words will know that this moment is neither frightening nor painful, but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body.
Elizabeth Kubler Ross
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
