Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
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.
