.... You ask, What is our policy? I will say; "It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy." You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory - victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.

Sir Winston Churchill, 1940, in his first address as the newly appointed Prime Minister.

.....in this world, you'll come across many people who will oppose you, and try to grind you down. Do not let them upset you or shake your confidence even a tiny bit. You must learn to derive your confidence and strength from their opposition. Paradoxical as it may sound to you, but that's the reality. Their obstacles will make you passionate, far more than ever before. Your critics will make you wise, foes will make you smart, and haters will keep you alert at all times. The key is to transform their negativity into positivity for yourself. Good luck!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

....Faith is that tiny and beautiful songbird in one's heart that sings wonderful melodies even in the darkest moments, because it can feel and see the divine light that is yet to arrive with dawn. Faith enables us to believe in something that may be beyond any rationale, reasoning and logic. And Faith also our inner strength that empowers us to bring our dreams and vision to fruition, with the Grace of God. Take the leap in the unknown with full Faith in God and yourself.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

A child's hand in yours -- what tenderness and power it arouses. You are instantly the very touchstone of wisdom and strength.

Marjorie Holmes

A man with a half volition goes backwards and forwards, and makes no way on the smoothest road a man with a whole volition advances on the roughest, and will reach his purpose, if there be even a little worthiness in it. The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder - a waif, a nothing, a no man. Have a purpose in life and having it, throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you.

Thomas Carlyle

A nation' s strength ultimately consists in what it can do on its own, and not in what it can borrow from others.

A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.

A strong defense is the surest way to peace. Strength makes detente attainable. Weakness invites war, as my generationmy generationknows from four very bitter experiences. Just as Americas will for peace is second to none, so will Americas strength be second to none. We cannot rely on the forbearance of others to protect this Nation. The power and diversity of the Armed Forces, active Guard and Reserve, the resolve of our fellow citizens, the flexibility in our command to navigate international waters that remain troubled are all essential to our security.

Gerald Ford

A tower of strength....his name cowed whole provinces while he was yet scores of miles away'.

George Ramsay, 9th Earl of Dalhousie

A wise man ought always to follow the paths beaten by great men, and to imitate those who have been supreme, so that if his ability does not equal theirs, at least it will savor of it. Let him act like the clever archers who, designing to hit the mark which yet appears too far distant, and knowing the limits to which the strength of their bow attains, take aim much higher than the mark, not to reach by their strength or arrow to so great a height, but to be able with the aid of so high an aim to hit the mark they wish to reach.

Niccolo Machiavelli

Always forgive, for it is symbol of strength and never apologise, for it is a symbol of weakness.

Vikrant Parsai

America's greatest strength, and its greatest weakness, is our belief in second chances, our belief that we can always start over, that things can be made better.

Homer

Be a craftsman in speech that thou mayest be strong, for the strength of one is the tongue, and speech is mightier than all fighting.
