Quote Left What though the radiance which was once so bright Be not forever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; Grief not, rather find, Strength in what remains behind, In the primal sympathy Which having been must ever be, In the soothing thoughts that spring Out of Human suffering, In the faith that looks through death In years that bring philophic mind. Quote Right
Quote Left The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education. Quote Right
Quote Left Here is my gift, not roses on your grave, not sticks of burning incense. You lived aloof, maintaining to the end your magnificent disdain. You drank wine, and told the wittiest jokes, and suffocated inside stifling walls. Alone you let the terrible stranger in, and stayed with her alone. Now you're gone, and nobody says a word about your troubled and exalted life. Only my voice, like a flute, will mourn at your dumb funeral feast. Oh, who would have dared believe that half-crazed I, I, sick with grief for the buried past, I, smoldering on a slow fire, having lost everything and forgotten all, would be fated to commemorate a man so full of strength and will and bright inventions, who only yesterday it seems, chatted with me, hiding the tremor of his mortal pain. Quote Right
Quote Left To be seventy years old is like climbing the Alps. You reach a snow-crowned summit, and see behind you the deep valley stretching miles and miles away, and before you other summits higher and whiter, which you may have strength to climb, or may not. Then you sit down and meditate and wonder which it will be. Quote Right
Quote Left What though the radiance which was once so bright Be not forever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower Strength in what remains behind, In the primal sympathy Which having been must ever be, In the soothing thoughts that spring Out of Human suffering, In the faith that looks through death In years that bring philophic mind.

Quote Left Oh! Pilot! 'tis a fearful night, There's danger on the deep, I'll come and pace the deck with thee, I do not dare to sleep. Go down, the sailor cried, go down, This is no place for thee; Fear not! but trust in Providence, Wherever thou mayst be. Ah! Pilot, dangers often met We all are apt to slight, And thou hast known these raging waves But to subdue their might. It is not apathy, he cried, That gives this strength to me, Fear not but trust in Providence, Wherever thou mayst be. On such a night the sea engulphed My father's lifeless form; My only brother's boat went down In just so wild a storm; And such, perhaps, may be my fate, But still I say to thee, Fear not but trust in Providence, Wherever thou mayst be.

Quote Left The chief mate of the Pequod was Starbuck, a native of Nantucket, and a Quaker by descent. He was a long, earnest man, and though born on an icy coast, seemed well adapted to endure hot latitudes, his flesh being hard as twice-baked biscuit. Transported to the Indies, his live blood would not spoil like bottled ale. He must have been born in some time of general drought and famine, or upon one of those fast days for which his state is famous. Only some thirty arid summers had he seen; those summers had dried up all his physical superfluousness. But this, his thinness, so to speak, seemed no more the token of wasting anxieties and cares, than it seemed the indication of any bodily blight. It was merely the condensation of the man. He was by no means ill-looking; quite the contrary. His pure tight skin was an excellent fit; and closely wrapped up in it, and embalmed with inner health and strength, like a revivified Egyptian, this Starbuck seemed prepared to endure for long ages to come, and to endure always, as now; for be it Polar snow or torrid sun, like a patent chronometer, his interior vitality was warranted to do well in all climates. Looking into his eyes, you seemed to see there the yet lingering images of those thousand-fold perils he had calmly confronted through life. A staid, steadfast man, whose life for the most part was a telling pantomime of action, and not a tame chapter of sounds. Yet, for all his hardy sobriety and fortitude, there were certain qualities in him which at times affected, and in some cases seemed well nigh to overbalance all the rest. Uncommonly conscientious for a seaman, and endued with a deep natural reverence, the wild watery loneliness of his life did therefore strongly incline him to superstition; but to that sort of superstition, which in some organizations seems rather to spring, somehow, from intelligence than from ignorance. Outward portents and inward presentiments were his. Quote Right
Quote Left Though we are not now at that strength which in better days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts made weak by time and fate but not in will; To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield Quote Right
Quote Left The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. Quote Right

Quote Left At last is Hector stretch'd upon the plain,Who fear'd no vengeance for Patroclus slainThen, Prince You should have fear'd, what now you feelAchilles absent was Achilles stillYet a short space the great avenger stayed,Then low in dust thy strength and glory laid. Quote Right
Quote Left These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death. Quote Right
Quote Left Would you who judge of the lawfulness or unlawfulness of pleasure, take this rule; whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes off the relish of spiritual things; in short; whatever increases the strength and authority of your body over your mind, that is sin to you; however innocent it may be in itself. Quote Right
Quote Left Build for your team a feeling of oneness, of dependence on one another and of strength to be derived by unity. Quote Right
Quote Left Nothing feebler than a man does the earth raise up, of all the things which breathe and move on the earth, for he believes that he will never suffer evil in the future, as long as the gods give him success and he flourishes in his strength; but when the blessed gods bring sorrows too to pass, even these he bears, against his will, with steadfast spirit, for the thoughts of earthly men are like the day which the father of gods and men brings upon them. Quote Right
Quote Left No woman is really an insider in the institutions fathered by masculine consciousness. When we allow ourselves to believe we are, we lose touch with parts of ourselves defined as unacceptable by that consciousness; with the vital toughness and visionary strength of the angry grandmothers, the fierce market women of the Ibo's Women's War, the marriage-resisting women silk workers of pre-Revolutionary China, the millions of widows, midwives, and the women healers tortured and burned as witches for three centuries in Europe. Quote Right
Quote Left My strength is as the strength of ten, Because my heart is pure. Quote Right
Quote Left We confide in our strength, without boasting of it; we respect that of others, without fearing it. Quote Right
Quote Left What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be not forever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
Grief not, rather find,
Strength in what remains behind,
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be,
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of Human suffering,
In the faith that looks through death
In years that bring philophic mind.

Quote Left In Paris today, millions of pounds of bread are sold daily, made during the previous night by those strange, half-naked beings one glimpses through cellar windows, whose wild-seeming cries floating out of those depths always makes a painful impression. In the morning, one sees these pale men, still white with flour, carrying a loaf under one arm, going off to rest and gather new strength to renew their hard and useful labor when night comes again. I have always highly esteemed the brave and humble workers who labor all night to produce those soft but crusty loaves that look more like cake than bread. Quote Right

Quote Left It takes great strength and a continuous search, to find the truth behind a veil of lies. But if you fail to pierce that drape of deception, your ignorance becomes fantasy that's unwise. Quote Right
Quote Left Strength can win battles, but patience wins wars. Quote Right
Quote Left The vast majority of us were raised to believe in some type of a greater good ; whether that being God, or any other faith to follow. Yet it seems the differences would ultimately lead to conflict, where the strength of fellowship would reach out with an overpowering embrace. This consolidation then leads to eventual dilation, where outlying extremes ferment towards a secular brew. Quote Right
Quote Left We must let go: of pain, sorry -- even joys and strengths. Life was never about gathering...but all about letting go. Everything we recognize as physical, is a superficial substitute, the construct of fallen will. To become like Christ is not to abandon oneself in favor of a greater ego...but to see one's offspring reflection in the loving eyes of God bidding us to take rightful dominion -- Welcome home my beloved. Quote Right

Quote Left When you find that you stepped back from ever chaotic crowd. When the anger sheds off and you gaze it all calmly... That's the first step.

The one who is calling is surely walking by your side. Quote Right

Quote Left Microbiology teaches us that size is no measure of significance; even the smallest microbe can wield immense power. Microbes are the silent warriors; these tiniest beings possess the strength to spark a revolution that can have monumental impacts in the world of science. ~ Aloo Denish Quote Right
Quote Left We all have a purpose, a purpose to fulfill. A journey to finish. A life to celebrate. Never let fear, obstacles and storms bring you down. We were all born for a purpose. We are Warriors, Kings and Queens. We are more than conquers. Let's begin now and worry about tomorrow later. Bible verse Isaih 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Quote Right
Quote Left Independence Day is not just a date on the calendar; it is a flame that ignites the spirit of every individual, reminding us that freedom is our birthright and courage is our strength.

Quote Left Each victory comes from the strength of our fortitude, not from elusive thoughts of glory. Quote Right
Quote Left What was predestined will occur in a specific place and time: whoever tries to prevent it, will not succeed. I've pondered over ruined lives for disobeying the fate's will, but sadly the consequences were unfavorable and catastrophic. I've seen people weep, not happy about the outcome of their dream; their allusion was too discernable...what was missing was their strength of defiance! Quote Right
Quote Left Embrace your uniqueness and let it shine through. People will appreciate you for who you are, not for who you are trying to be. Be confident in yourself and trust that the right people will come into your life and accept you just as you are. Don't waste time trying to fit in or be like someone else, you were created to be your own person with your own set of strengths and weaknesses. So, show your true colors and let the world see the real you. Quote Right
Quote Left My life's story isn't so much about my weakness as it is about His strength. 12 April 2023 Quote Right
Quote Left I think the worst person you can let down ever, is yourself. The person you must never run away from, but confront full on is yourself. The greatest Strength is always found in the time of breaking, of pure vulnerability, when towers crumble and you are walking through the wreckage, the person you must salvage first is yourself. Quote Right
Quote Left Ugly pain is savage and beautiful. It's kind of like child birth. That's a war cry, in itself. Ugly pain can tear your whole world apart; without belief of something greater outside of the pain, weakness wins, but strength is belief in something, bigger, better...that always wins...and that is fierce. Quote Right

Quote Left you do need God to be strong. Why, because that's where strength is, as long you rely on yourself for strength it'll never come. Strength doesn't belong to creation, it is God who invented it, so strength doesn't belong to you, me or anyone of the creation. Have a lovely day and stay safe. Quote Right

The silence, the listening power is the only tool which can bring respite in form of proper SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats )analysis and postive growth. Quote Right
