What does not destroy me, makes me strong.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

The least strength suffices to break what is bruised.
  [Lat., Minimae vires frangere quassa valent.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Tristia
         (bk. III, 11, 22)

Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.
      - Clementine Paddleford

The stronger always succeeds.
  [Lat., Plus potest qui plus valet.]
      - Plautus (Titus Maccius Plautus),
        Truculentus (IV, 3, 30)

I feel like a Bull Moose.
      - Theodore Roosevelt,
        on landing from Cuba with his Rough Riders after the Spanish-American War

I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life.
      - Theodore Roosevelt,
        in a speech in Chicago, April 10, 1899

When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
      - Arnold Schwarzenegger

Profaned the God-given strength, and marr'd the lofty line.
      - Sir Walter Scott

Profan'd the God-given strength, and marr'd the lofty line.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Marmion--Introduction
         (canto I)

The king's name is a tower of strength,
  Which they upon the adverse party want.
      - William Shakespeare

In that day's feats,
  When he might act the woman in the scene,
    He prov'd best man i' th' field, and for his meed
      Was brow-bound with the oak.
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Cominius at II, ii)

O, it is excellent
  To have a giant's strength, but it is tyrannous
    To use it like a giant.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Isabella at II, ii)

Robust grass endures mighty winds; loyal ministers emerge through ordeal.
      - Li Shimim

In a just cause the weak will beat the strong.
      - Sophocles

Strength alone knows conflict; weakness is below even defeat, and is born vanquished.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

We deceive ourselves when we fancy that only weakness needs support. Strength needs it far more. A straw or a feather sustains itself long in the air.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Although men are accused for not knowing their own weakness, yet perhaps as few know their own strength. It is in men as in soils, where sometimes there is a vein of gold which the owner knows not of.
      - Jonathan Swift

So let it be in God's own might
  We gird us for the coming fight,
    And, strong in Him whose cause is ours
      In conflict with unholy powers,
        We grasp the weapons he has given,--
          The Light, and Truth, and Love of Heaven.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier,
        Thor Moral Warfare

The exhibition of real strength is never grotesque. Distortion is the agony of weakness. It is the dislocated mind whose movements are spasmodic.
      - Robert Aris Willmott
