“You gain strength, courage and confidence
by every experience in which
you really stop to look fear in the face.
You are able to say to yourself,
‘I have lived through this horror.
I can take the next thing that comes along.’
You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
“Never assume that loud is strong
and quiet is weak.”
“I am thankful for my struggle because without it,
I wouldn’t have stumbled upon my strength.”
~ Alexandra Elle
“Instead of cataloging your flaws,
shortcomings, and everything you lack,
inspire inner growth
by focusing on your gifts,
strengths, and yearnings,
and devote yourself
to making them flourish.
The self needs a committed gardener.”
~ Peg Streep
“Strong people stand up for themselves.
Stronger people stand up for others.”
~ Chris Gardner
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
To keep our faces toward change
and behave like free spirits
in the presence of fate
is strength undefeatable.”
~ Helen Keller
“Find your true weakness and surrender to it.
Therein lies the path to genius.
Most people spend their lives using their strengths
to overcome or cover up their weaknesses.
Those few who use their strengths
to incorporate their weaknesses,
who don’t divide themselves,
those people are very rare.
In any generation there are a few
and they lead their generation.”
~ Moshe Feldenkrais more
