Famous quotes containing the word strength:

    Few serve truth in truth because only few have the pure will to be just, and of those again very few have the strength to be just.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Now I see our lances are but straws,
    Our strength as weak, our weakness past compare,
    That seeming to be most which we indeed least are.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    So immense are the claims on a mother, physical claims on her bodily and brain vigor, and moral claims on her heart and thoughts, that she cannot ... meet them all and find any large margin beyond for other cares and work. She serves the community in the very best and highest way it is possible to do, by giving birth to healthy children, whose physical strength has not been defrauded, and to whose moral and mental nature she can give the whole of her thoughts.
    Frances Power Cobbe (1822–1904)
