Quotable Sunday ~Strength

It has been my great privilege to know many strong women in my life, and I have "met" many more through this new bloggy world I have also entered. So today's Quotable Sunday focuses on Strength. To see more great Sunday quotes visit A Daily Dose of Toni.



~Strength~


We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot. ~Eleanor Roosevelt





My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength. ~Michael Jordan




I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time ~ Anna Freud



To discover a weakness is the beginning of strength. When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe



A woman is like a tea bag--you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water. ~ Nancy Reagan



I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. ~Mother Teresa
