22 Strength Quotes-Strength has many types, those strong in spirit, those who are mentally strong and physically strong individuals but my favorite types of people are those with a strong character. The reason I say this is that they are a compilation of heart strong, spiritually strong and mentally strong. These types can endure a lot while still putting others first. We do not always feel strong, though. Often we need a pick-me-up in order to feel the strength we contain. This is where Strength Quotes come in. In this piece I will be sharing a few with you.
Sometimes you don’t realize your own strength until you come face to face with your greatest weakness-Susan Gale
A weakness often forces us to access our strengths. We learn more about ourselves by simply facing our weaknesses. We need to realize that by avoiding dealing with weaknesses we are just postponing the inevitable as eventually we do need to deal with it and the sooner the better.

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all-Dale Carnegie
There is a reason why we are taught to keep trying even if we fail from a very young age. Chances are that the continuous trying will give us the needed experience to succeed eventually. This is something we can apply to everything in our lives. If we fail, simply get back on that horse and try again. Even if you never succeed, at least you will not feel guilty for not trying hard enough.
And my absolute favorite (I wish I knew who to credit for this)…
True strength is keeping everything together when everyone expects you to fall apart. (Unknown)
When everything and everybody seems to be letting you down it is hard to stay strong but the one way of knowing your level of strength is the ability to keep things together when mere mortals would have just folded under the pressure.
Realizing that you are strong is absolutely necessary in order to feel the power. On the days that you just can’t, strength quotes could give you the lift you need to empower you again, to make you the kind of strong that you forgot you were.
