Strength and Struggle

Strength and Struggle

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for.
Whatever the struggle, continue the climb. It may be only one step to the summit.
Need and struggle are what excite and inspire us.
Success is sweet and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats.
For better or worse, our future will be determined in large part by our dreams and by the struggle to make them real.
Life has meaning only in the struggle. Triumph or defeat is in the hands of the Gods. So let us celebrate the struggle!
