Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.
My greatest strength is the love for my people, my greatest weakness is that I love them too much.sheikh mujibur rahman
But surely Adam cannot be excused; Her fault though great, yet he was most to blame; What weakness offered, strength might have refused, Being lord of all, the greater was the shame.Aemilia Lanyer
At the heart of its strength is a weakness: a lone candle can hold it back. Love is more than a candle, love can ignite the stars.
I see compassion may become a justice, though it be a weakness, I confess, and nearer a vice than a virtue.Ben Jonson
Credulity is the man's weakness, but the child's strength.Charles Lamb
Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.Dalai Lama
There is always a certain glamour about the idea of a nation rising up to crush an evil simply because it is wrong. Unfortunately, this can seldom be realized in real life; for the very existence of the evil usually argues a moral weakness in the very place where extraordinary moral strength is called for.w. e. b. dubois
Let the church come to God in the strength of a perfect weakness, in the power of a felt helplessness and a child-like confidence, and then, either she has no strength, and has no right to be, or she has a strength that is infinite. Then and thus, will she stretch out the rod over the seas of difficulty that lie before her, and the waters shall divide, and she shall pass through, and sing the song of deliverance.mark hopkins
Let us learn how the love of Christ, received into the heart, triumphs gradually but surely over all sin, transforms character, turning even its weakness into strength, and so, from the depths of transgression and the very gates of hell, raises men to God.alexander maclaren
Even the strongest spirits have the moments of irresistible weaknessjosé saramago
Press on! If Fortune play thee false To-day, tomorrow she'll be true; Whom now she sinks she now exalts, Taking old gifts and granting new, The wisdom of the present hour Makes up the follies past and gone; To weakness, strength succeeds, and power From frailty springs! Press on, press on!benjamin, park, sr.
To the "masculists" of both sexes, "femininity" implies all that men have built into the female image in the past few centuries: weakness, imbecility, dependence, masochism, unreliability, and a certain "babydoll" sexuality that is actually only a projection of male dreams. To the "feminist" of both sexes, femininity is synonymous with the eternal female principle, connoting strength, integrity, wisdom, justice, dependability, and a psychic power foreign and therefore dangerous to the plodding masculists of both sexes.elizabeth gould davis
A just society must strive with all its might to right wrongs even if righting wrongs is a highly perilous undertaking. But if it is to survive , a just society must be strong and resolute enough to deal swiftly and relentlessly with those who would mistake its good will for weakness .Eric Hoffer
Non-violent resistance implies the very opposite of weakness. Defiance combined with non-retaliatory acceptance of repression from one's opponents is active, not passive. It requires strength, and there is nothing automatic or intuitive about the resoluteness required for using non-violent methods in political struggle and the quest for Truth.Mohandas K. Gandhi
The mystical trend of our time, which shows itself particularly in the rampant growth of the so-called Theosophy and Spiritualism, is for me no more than a symptom of weakness and confusion. Since our inner experiences consist of reproductions, and combinations of sensory impressions, the concept of a soul without a body seem to me to be empty and devoid of meaning.
A spear? Through my brain? My... only... weakness...!
Not Eve, whose fault was only too much love, Which made her give this present to her dear, That what she tasted he likewise might prove, Whereby his knowledge might become more clear; He never sought her weakness to reprove With those sharp words which he of God did hear; Yet men will boast of knowledge, which he took From Eve's fair hand, as from a learned book.Aemilia Lanyer
In relations with other nations, there is neither right nor wrong; there is only strength and weakness.roman dmowski
It is on account neither of God's weakness nor ignorance that evil comes into the world, but rather it is due to the order of his wisdom and the greatness of his goodness that diverse grades of goodness occur in things, many of which would be lacking if no evil were permitted. Indeed, the good of patience would not exist without the evil of persecution; nor the good of preservation of life in a lion if not for the evil of the destruction of the animals on which it lives.thomas aquinas
As much as I value an union of all the states, I would not admit the southern states into the union, unless they agreed to the discontinuance of this disgraceful trade, because it would bring weakness and not strength to the union.george mason
Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.Kahlil Gibran
Tomorrow is a satire on today, and shows its weakness.Edward Young
I shall see Him with these eyes, Him whom I shall surely know; Not another shall I rise, With His love this heart shall glow; Only there shall disappear weakness in and round me here.
