A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.
|in love quotes, God Quotes by Abraham Joshua Heschel|
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
I understand now that the vulnerability I have always felt is the greatest strength a person can have. You can't experience life without feeling life. What I have learned is that being vulnerable to somebody you love is not a weakness, it's a strength. - Elisabeth Shue
