W. Clement Stone
I have to represent. I feel proud to have a culture that's different... and proud to be a Latina. We're not all categorized as one type of person... there's people from everywhere doing different things who have different types of cultures. Being Latina for me is also being a strong woman.
I'll never feel comfortable taking a strong drink, and I'll never feel easy smoking a cigarette. I just don't think those things are right for me.
When our spelling is perfect, it's invisible. But when it's flawed, it prompts strong negative associations.
Marilyn vos Savant
Love is not weakness. It is strong. Only the sacrament of marriage can contain it.
You don't read many scripts, especially for crime dramas, that feature a strong woman as the central character.
I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate - it's apathy. It's not giving a damn.

Richard J. Needham
Hope is the anchor of our souls. I know of no one who is not in need of hope - young or old, strong or weak, rich or poor.
James E. Faust
Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
Henry Ward Beecher
Build today, then strong and sure, With a firm and ample base; And ascending and secure. Shall tomorrow find its place.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
You know, there's nothing damnable about being a strong woman. The world needs strong women. There are a lot of strong women you do not see who are guiding, helping, mothering strong men. They want to remain unseen. It's kind of nice to be able to play a strong woman who is seen.
Women somehow get portrayed as one type. You're either a feminist or you're not. You're a working woman or you're not. I'm raising two girls, and I say to them, 'I need you to be strong and soft. You can be smart and beautiful... You can be all of these things.'
Being strong can be also feminine. I don't think feminine equals being weak. Being strong is very sexy.

It is the nature of the strong heart, that like the palm tree it strives ever upwards when it is most burdened.
Stay strong. Stand up. Have a voice.
I'm a strong believer that you practice like you play, little things make big things happen.
Most achievers I know are people who have made a strong and deep dedication to pursuing a particular goal. That dedication took a tremendous amount of effort.
Tragedy is like strong acid - it dissolves away all but the very gold of truth.
D. H. Lawrence
I'm lucky my wife is a strong woman. She's one of the stronger people I've ever met. It's hard for me to be away, but I know my home life is fine because my wife is there.
True praise comes often even to the lowly; false praise only to the strong.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Chimpanzees have very strong preferences and aversions that are completely personality-linked. The people who are unsuccessful in working with chimpanzees are those who take this personally.
