To be strong

What does it take to be strong? You must activate the strength that is yours with which to live.

The flame burns strong simply because it is a flame. The river runs strong because that is what rivers must do.

Strength grows by being exercised. To be strong, do what you would do with strength, and to be stronger, keep doing it.

Strength is in your nature. It is up to you to deploy that strength into the experience of your life.

You are strong enough to make a start. And you are strong enough to get stronger.

The strength to act, to wait, to persist, to resist, does not spring from clever strategy. Your strength begins the moment you begin.

— Ralph Marston
