Quote of the Day
The resistance that you fight physically in the gym and the resistance that you fight in life can only build a strong character.
I've always traveled with a picture of my daughter from 1989, her kindergarten school picture, that has 'I love you, Daddy' written on it. She's always made fun of me because I never changed that picture out. It's like my resistance to her getting older. It was the first thing she'd ever written to me and it means the world to me.
To fight and conquer in all our battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.
What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
I didn't consider myself a fashion designer at all at the time of punk. I was just using fashion as a way to express my resistance and to be rebellious. I came from the country, and by the time I got to London, I considered myself to be very stupid. It was my ambition to understand the world I live in.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
You don't argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn't eat candy for dinner. You don't punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don't argue when a women tells you she's only making 80 cents to your dollar. It's the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles.
The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.
Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.
When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
Paralyze resistance with persistence.
I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage.
Resistance is feasible even for those who are not heroes by nature, and it is an obligation, I believe, for those who fear the consequences and detest the reality of the attempt to impose American hegemony.
Every moment of resistance to temptation is a victory.
Frederick William Faber
Solidarity is an attitude of resistance, I suppose, or it should be.
Art begins with resistance - at the point where resistance is overcome. No human masterpiece has ever been created without great labor.
Try to find the path of least resistance and use it without harming others. Live with integrity and morality, not only with people but with all beings.
Most of us have two lives: the life we live, and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands Resistance.
Days will prove that the assassination policy will not finish the Hamas. Hamas leaders wish to be martyrs and are not scared of death. Jihad will continue and the resistance will continue until we have victory, or we will be martyrs.
Antibiotics are a very serious public health problem for us, and it's getting worse. Resistant microbes outstrip new antibiotics. It's an ongoing problem. It's not like we can fix it, and it's over. We have to fight continued resistance with a continual pipeline of new antibiotics and continue with the perpetual challenge.
In sales, a referral is the key to the door of resistance.
The path of least resistance is the path of the loser.
H. G. Wells

Ida B. Wells
John F. Kennedy
