When strength is yoked with justice, where is a mightier pair than they?
Aeschylus, Fragments, l. 298
The Lord is my strength and my might, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Second Epistle to the Corinthians|2 Corinthians 12:9 (New King James Version)
Strength is not if you can fight all evil that comes to you, and running away does not necessarily make you a coward. It’s walking in the dusk between light and dark, not crossing over either way, it takes true strength and courage to do this… it is too easy to fall either way.
Jerry Grant Blakeney
O, it is excellentTo have a giant’s strength, but it is tyrannousTo use it like a giant.
William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure|Measure for Measure, Act 2, sc. 2 (1603)
We all have strength enough to bear the misfortunes of others.
François de La Rochefoucauld, Maximes, no. 19 (1678)
My strength is as the strength of ten,Because my heart is pure.
Alfred Tennyson, Sir Galahad, st. 1 (1842)
To ask strength not to express itself as strength, not to be a will to dominate, a will to subjugate, a will to become master, a thirst for enemies and obstacles and triumphant celebrations, is just as absurd as to ask weakness to express itself as strength.
Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morals, “First Essay,” section 13 (1887)
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
Rudyard Kipling, The Second Jungle Book, "The Law of the Jungle", st. 2 (1895)
