Famous quotes containing the word strength:

    Egotism is a kind of buckram that gives momentary strength and concentration to men, and seems to be much used in Nature for fabrics in which local and spasmodic energy is required.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    One reason writers write is out of revenge. Life hurts; certain ideas and experiences hurt; one wants to clarify, to set out illuminations, to replay the old bad scenes and get the Treppenworte said—the words one didn’t have the strength or ripeness to say when those words were necessary for one’s dignity or survival.
    Cynthia Ozick (b. 1928)

    I am not yet born; O fill me
    With strength against those who would freeze my
    humanity, would dragoon me into a lethal automaton
    would make me a cog in a machine, a thing with
    one face, a thing,
    Louis MacNeice (1907–1963)
