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.
It is good to love as much as one can, for therein lies true strength, and he who loves much does much and is capable of much, and that which is done with love is well done.
What these blessed men have given us we must guard and try to keep alive with all our strength if humanity is not to lose its dignity, the security of its existence, and its joy in living.
We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.
The strongest natures, when they are influenced, submit the most unreservedly: it is perhaps a sign of their strength.
Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason, mastery demands the whole person.
My attitude is, if you push me toward something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.
