A-Z promising quotes: Strength
Multiple sclerosis is often seen as a strength-stealer, but maybe the life with the dreaded MS MonSter actually builds strength of an altogether different sort.
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1419), Italian artist and scientist, looked at strength in an intriguing manner:
“I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.”
Stress and distress test us. OK, that’s not a news flash. But the ways we face such tests may define the strength we have. Boldness, determination, integrity, intelligence, character, conscience, and personal principles are off-limits for even the most aggressively progressive forms of MS.
Even if our physical strength dwindles, we can cling to the choice to run the race and finish strong.
