The curse which lies upon marriage is that too often the individuals are joined in their weakness rather than in their strength --each asking from the other instead of finding pleasure in giving. It is even more deceptive to dream of gaining through the child a plenitude, a warmth, a value, which one is unable to create for oneself; the child brings joy only to the woman who is capable of disinterestedly desiring the happiness of another, to one who without being wrapped up in self seeks to transcend her own existence.

Simone de Beauvoir

The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.

Leon Trotsky

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.

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.

The essence of the modern state is that the universal be bound up with the complete freedom of its particular members and with private well-being, that thus the interests of family and civil society must concentrate themselves on the state. It is only when both these moments subsist in their strength that the state can be regarded as articulated and genuinely organized.

The freedom to fail is vital if you're going to succeed, most successful men fail time and time again, and it is a measure of their strength that failure merely propels them into some new attempt at success.

Woodrow Wilson

The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder - 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

The more weakness the more falsehood; strength goes straight: every cannon ball that has in it hollows and holes goes crooked.

The strength and weakness of reason is that it imposes a uniform way of thinking and understanding. Hence its usefulness is immediate to society but not to that extent to the individuals in the same society; again the reason evolves all the time. The very evolution happened at differing geographical isolations made individuals with different levels of mental capacity; the uniform force of reason of society threatens individual minds that are not fully evolved to grasp the reason; such minds are weak and only attained a capacity to create questions without an ability to generate answers; having created the questions they are ready to receive any kind of answers instead of handling the reason. The reason is a day to day struggle for them while the religion has been made available as a readymade answer for any circumstances. Hence at the level of society the reason wins but at the individual level of practice the reason often fails and that makes religion to win.

Thiruman Archunan
