A Quote by Phoebe Hesketh on earth, faith, and struggle

Hands tremulous as cherry blossoms kept Faith with struggling seedlings till the earth Kept faith with him, claimed him as he slept Cold in the sun beside his upright spade.

A Quote by Phillips Brooks on character, day, decisions, failure, life, quiet, sorrow, struggle, and temptation

Some day, in years to come, you will be wrestling with the great temptation, or trembling under the great sorrow of your life. But the real struggle is here, now, in these quiet weeks. Now it is being decided whether, in the day of your supreme sorrow or temptation, you shall miserably fail or gloriously conquer. Character cannot be made except by a steady, long-continued process.

A Quote by Phillips Brooks on heaven, strength, and struggle

You may look through the streets of heaven, asking each how they came to b there, and you will look in vain everywhere for a person who is morally and spiritually strong, whose strength did not come to him in struggle. There is no exception anywhere. Every true strength is gained in struggle.

A Quote by Paul Robeson on acting, freedom, people, and struggle

Through my singing and acting and speaking, I want to make freedom ring. Maybe I can touch people's hearts better than I can their minds, with the common struggle of the common man.

A Quote by Paul H. Dunn on bravery, defeat, justice, soldiers, and struggle

You remember the Duke of Wellington was talking of the Battle of Waterloo when he said that it was not that the British soldiers were braver than the French soldiers. It was just that they were brave five minutes longer. And in our struggles sometimes that's all it takes-to be brave five minutes longer, to try just a little harder, to not give up on ourselves when everything seems to beg for our defeat.

A Quote by Orson Hyde on age, body, change, day, death, existence, hope, life, mortality, progress, sorrow, struggle, and suffering

I have commenced to feel the infirmities of increasing age and years; and so many of us now, after these many years of toil, have to struggle with the going down sun of our earthly existence. But we have the consolation of knowing that our mortal body will not always impede our progress, we shall not forever suffer its inconveniences; we are gladdened in the hope of either laying down this mortal tabernacle or undergoing that welcome change which will free us from all afflications and annoyances. And as we hail the day when we shall be free from sorrow and death, to forever rejoice in the joys of everlasting lives.

Success is not measured by what a man accomplishes, but by the opposition he has encountered, and the courage with which he has maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds. . . .
