Writers Quote Wednesday – STRENGTH

24 Aug

Welcome! It’s Writers Quote Wednesday sponsored by Colleen Chesebro of ‘Silver Threading‘ and Ronovan Hester of ‘Ronovan Writes‘. Anyone can participate by choosing a quote by a favorite writer then you may add artwork, photography, a short piece of flash fiction or poetry to share with us all. You can add anything you like to highlight your quote. Have fun with it!

We have a great theme this week: STRENGTH chosen by Colleen.

Colleen asks, what does strength mean to you?

To me love means strength. It isn’t easy to love. Of course, nowadays the word love is used so indiscriminately, ‘I love ice cream!’, ‘I love to dance.’, ‘I love the beach’ . . .  that one might say it has lost some of its value and strength, but I’m talking about real love and not just a word.

To truly love someone means that you have to accept the person with all his or her faults. You have to be able to forgive your loved ones when they’ve wronged you. You have to be patient and understanding. You have to be willing to sacrifice and put yourself last sometimes for their benefit. You have to be willing to go hungry, so that they won’t.

To truly love someone takes an immeasurable amount of strength.

Love Is Strength

by George MacDonald

Love alone is great in might,
Makes the heavy burden light,
Smooths rough ways to weary feet,
Makes the bitter morsel sweet:
Love alone is strength!

Might that is not born of Love
Is not Might born from above,
Has its birthplace down below
Where they neither reap nor sow:
Love alone is strength!

Love is stronger than all force,
Is its own eternal source;
Might is always in decay,
Love grows fresher every day:
Love alone is strength!

Little ones, no ill can chance;
Fear ye not, but sing and dance;
Though the high-heaved heaven should fall
God is plenty for us all:
God is Love and Strength!

“Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.”

~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.”

~Ann Landers

“She is strong, but not in the ways most people think. She loves more than she’ll ever get back and she knows it. And yet, she loves anyway.”

~JM Storm

“I never knew how strong I was until I had to forgive someone who wasn’t sorry, and accept an apology I never received.”
