Famous quotes containing the word strength:

    ... the strength and pain
    Of being young; that it can’t come again,
    But is for others undiminished somewhere.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    It’s not that I don’t want to be a beauty, that I don’t yearn to be dripping with glamor. It’s just that I can’t see how any woman can find time to do to herself all the things that must apparently be done to make herself beautiful and, having once done them, how anyone without the strength of mind of a foreign missionary can keep up such a regime.
    Cornelia Otis Skinner (1901–1979)

    The strength of women comes from the fact that psychology cannot explain us. Men can be analysed, women ... merely adored.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
