I feel that the constitution is workable, it is flexible and it is strong enough to hold the country together both in peacetime and in wartime. Indeed, if I may say so, if things go wrong under the new Constitution, the reason will not be that we had a bad Constitution. What we will have to say is that Man was vile.B.R. Ambedkar Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By B.R. Ambedkar: I feel that the constitution is workable, it is flexible and it is strong enough

And you're right, I do love you Eden. I will follow you into eternity, or until after this weekend when we all die gruesome, painful deaths ... But with every breath I have left, I will use it to love you. Because, Eden, I want this ... You; I want you more than life, more than anything. There was a time when I didn't think I was strong enough to face you again, or what is between us. I was too afraid of the heartache, of being shattered again. But now, it doesn't matter, nothing matters except you. I will take an eternity of hardship, of war or fighting my father, or anything, just to hold your love again. You are everything to me, my sun, my moon, the air I breathe. Nothing exists accept you. I love you.Rachel Higginson Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Rachel Higginson: And you're right, I do love you Eden. I will follow you into eternity, or

And it was good just to hold her and touch the softness of her skin. He wanted to hold her hard, not to hurt her but to keep her safe, to show her that he was strong enough to protect her. Her beauty was like fire and strange music, and he loved her.L.J.Smith Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By L.J.Smith: And it was good just to hold her and touch the softness of her skin.
The object of defense is preservation; and since it is easier to hold ground than to take it, defense is easier than attack. But defense has a passive purpose: preservation; and attack a positive one: conquest ... If defense is the stronger form of war, yet has a negative object, it follows that it should be used only so long as weakness compels, and be abandoned as soon as we are strong enough to pursue a positive object.Carl Von Clausewitz Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Carl Von Clausewitz: The object of defense is preservation; and since it is easier to hold ground than
And so we come to the last crisis, that of integrity versus disgust and despair. Throughout the life-cycle the pieces have been assembled, structure built on structure around the ego's continuity. Now with death not too far away, can it all hold up or will it crumble? Are the links of love and meaning strong enough so that we are ourselves content to fall away.Charles Hampden-Turner Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Charles Hampden-Turner: And so we come to the last crisis, that of integrity versus disgust and despair.
We never can create a public sentiment strong enough to suppress the dram-shops until God's people take hold of the temperance reform as a part of their religion.Theodore L. Cuyler Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Theodore L. Cuyler: We never can create a public sentiment strong enough to suppress the dram-shops until God's
Tell me, Laurel, what
do you know of erosion?"
Laurel couldn't imagine what this had to do with anything, but she answered anyway. "Like when water or
wind wears away the ground?"
"That's right. Given enough time, wind and rain will carry the tallest mountain into the sea. But," he said,
raising a finger, "a hillside covered in grass will resist erosion, and a riverbank may be held in place by
bushes and trees. They spread their roots," he said, extending his hands with his story, "and grab hold. And
though the river will pull at the soil, if the roots are strong enough, they will prevail. If they cannot, they
will eventually be carried away too.
Aprilynne Pike Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Aprilynne Pike: Tell me, Laurel, whatdo you know of erosion?"Laurel couldn't imagine what this had to do
I not only weaken the opposition, I'm going to make them dead ... and if anyone is strong enough to try to hold a demonstration, I will beat all those dogs and put them in a cage.Hun Sen Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Hun Sen: I not only weaken the opposition, I'm going to make them dead ... and if
When the battle is over, the winners find it very hard not to pursue their violence. If you are strong enough to hold violence, you are strong enough to hold true to your pact. Then you have more moral fiber than most adults. Free will is one of the pillars of being human.Alan McCluskey Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Alan McCluskey: When the battle is over, the winners find it very hard not to pursue their
Our ancestors," he went on after a while, "took this land. They took it and made it and held it. We do not give up what our ancestors gave us. They came across the sea and they fought here, and they built here and they're buried here. This is our land, mixed with our blood, strengthened with our bone. Ours!" He was angry, but he was often angry. He glowered at me, as if wondering whether I was strong enough to hold this land of Northumbria that our ancestors had won with sword and spear and blood and slaughter.Bernard Cornwell Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: Our ancestors," he went on after a while, "took this land. They took it and
And he's pressing into her and she into him, bodies shivering, like they are two scared, lost children, starving, starving to be touched, to be held, by someone, anyone, the first one they can find who seems familiar enough, safe enough, strong enough to rescue them. They breathe, heavy. Hard. Their fingers strain at cotton. And then they slow down. Stop. Hold. Rest. Before one of them, or both, begins to sob. Before they break another piece that needs to be fixed.Lisa McMann Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Lisa McMann: And he's pressing into her and she into him, bodies shivering, like they are two
No one is strong enough to hold back so many tearsAmy Zhang Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Amy Zhang: No one is strong enough to hold back so many tears
Anything important has to be almost invisible. And underrated. So the understructure should be underrated, but strong enough to hold the earth.Agnes Denes Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Agnes Denes: Anything important has to be almost invisible. And underrated. So the understructure should be underrated,
There is satisfaction in knowing that something good and right and true was part of you. That you had the blessing, gift, good fortune, perfect luck, to know someone like this, to pass through fire and water and stone and sky together and emerge, all of you, strong enough to hold on, strong enough to let go. (Cassia)Ally Condie Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Ally Condie: There is satisfaction in knowing that something good and right and true was part of
It had seemed entirely sensible at the time. A simple way to test the truth of her claim that she had lain with de Villiers. To show her that lying to him was useless. To make a point.
Instead, he had ignited a desire that burned him like none he had ever felt before.
He had expected Lady Laurien d'Amboise to be a timid little convent mouse. Quiet and passive and pliant. Easily manageable. Instead she was outspoken and strong-willed...and stunning in a way he could not even describe.
An innocent beauty caught up in a deadly game that was none of her making....
Malcolm rose to leave, chuckling.
"And what is there to laugh about?"
Darach gave his jovial friend a dour look.
Malcolm stopped just long enough to do his best imitation of Darach. "'Simple. Kidnap one French lass, hold her for a fortnight, and return her to de Villiers after he meets our demands. Perfectly simple.
Shelly Thacker Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Shelly Thacker: It had seemed entirely sensible at the time. A simple way to test the truth
And yet the hope of this paradise had not been enough to save him from a course which shut him out of it forever. Instead of keeping fast hold of the strong silken rope by which Nancy would have drawn him safe to the green banks where it was easy to step firmly, he had let himself be dragged back into the mud and slime, in which it was useless to struggle. He had made his ties for himself which robbed him of all wholesome motive and were a constant exasperation.George Eliot Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By George Eliot: And yet the hope of this paradise had not been enough to save him from
Eragon said, I have a new name for pain. What's that? The Obliterator. Because when you're in pain, nothing else can exist. Not thought. Not emotion. Only the drive to escape the pain. When it's strong enough, the Obliterator strips us of everything that makes us who we are, until we're reduced to creatures less than animals, creatures with a single desire and goal: escape. A good name, then. I'm falling apart, Saphira, like an old horse that's plowed too many fields. Keep hold of me with your mind, or I may drift apart and forget who I am. I will never let go of you.Christopher Paolini Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Christopher Paolini: Eragon said, I have a new name for pain. What's that? The Obliterator. Because when
Akinli, this strange boy whose life at the moment seemed to be hanging on this, pushed himself from the bed.
Julie gasped, watching as his arms trembled under his weight, even as thin as he was. He crushed his eyes together in concentration, willing himself up.
I heard Ben whisper to himself, "Come on, come on, come on."
When Akinli, breathing as if he truly had just run a marathon, was fairly close to upright, he held out an arm for me.
I fell into it fearlessly.
We leaned into each other, neither of us strong enough to stay up on our own.
"I thought I'd never see you sit up again," Julie cried.
We both turned to her, smiling at the happy tears on her face.
Kiera Cass Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Kiera Cass: Akinli, this strange boy whose life at the moment seemed to be hanging on this,
I think maybe God was trying to tell me that gentleness begins with strength, quietness with security. A great tree is both moved and unmoved, for it changes with the seasons, but its roots keep it anchored in the ground. Mastering a gentle and quiet spirit didn't mean changing my personality, just regaining control of it, growing strong enough to hold back and secure enough to soften.Rachel Held Evans Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Rachel Held Evans: I think maybe God was trying to tell me that gentleness begins with strength, quietness
Hope doesn't require a massive chain where heavy links of logic hold it together. A thin wire will do ... just strong enough to get us through the night until the winds die down.Charles R. Swindoll Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Charles R. Swindoll: Hope doesn't require a massive chain where heavy links of logic hold it together. A
Nothing can hold you back if your determination is strong enough.Debasish Mridha Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Debasish Mridha: Nothing can hold you back if your determination is strong enough.
People still love browsing book stores, and there is an element of passion in collecting DVDs; however, it seems unlikely that the desire to collect boxes or a preference for physical artwork over thumbnails are strong enough forces to hold back the convenience (and, arguably, inevitability) of digital copies.Jeff Ulin Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Jeff Ulin: People still love browsing book stores, and there is an element of passion in collecting
My voice is strong and imposing, and my legs are powerful enough to hold up its weight. I wake up every day assured of my right to not only participate in the world as an equal part of it, but to loudly reject the narrative that keeps trying to tell me to pipe down, fold in, shrivel up, simper, apologise and slink my way through life so as not to offend or upset anyone with the complicated, beautiful mess that is me. I have fought the odds to get here, empowered by the knowledge that every single woman who has come before me has fought her own battle in order to survive. We fight like girls. This is how we prevail. And this is why we're still standing.Clementine Ford Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Clementine Ford: My voice is strong and imposing, and my legs are powerful enough to hold up
The prophecy, "The Revelation of Christ" is about mankind's journey into a darker reality and then our quest to create a light based reality. We can only create a light based reality when we have re-created our collective spirit to make it strong enough to hold light.Phoenix Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Phoenix: The prophecy, "The Revelation of Christ" is about mankind's journey into a darker reality and
If you want to raise a man from mud and filth, do not think it is enough to stay on top and reach a helping hand down to him. You must go all the way down yourself, down into mud and filth. Then take hold of him with strong hands and pull him and yourself out into the light.Martin Buber Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Martin Buber: If you want to raise a man from mud and filth, do not think it
I gaze out at the glittering sea, the breathtaking sky above it, and think of birds and the moment before the fall, and how my sister as a child had been strong enough for the both of us, and I wonder when exactly that changed. I don't know when, but it did. Jake was right - I'm strong in a way June never was. Because I know that I want to be here. Even with the pain. Even with the ugliness. I've seen the other side - marching side by side down city streets with people who all believe they can change the world and the view of the sunset from Fridgehenge and Tom Waits lyrics and doing the waltz and kisses so hot they melt into each other and best friends who hold your hand and stretching out underneath a sky draped with stars and everything else.
There is so much beauty in just existing. In being alive. I don't want to miss a second.
Hannah Harrington Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Hannah Harrington: I gaze out at the glittering sea, the breathtaking sky above it, and think of
I have long carried this load of griefs in the cage of my heart. Now I have given them to you. I hope you are strong enough to hold them.Qais Akbar Omar Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Qais Akbar Omar: I have long carried this load of griefs in the cage of my heart. Now
A caregiver is changed by the culture of illness, just as one is changed by the dynamic era in which one lives. For one thing, I don't have as much time in conversation with myself, and I feel the loss. Certainly I worry more about his death, and mine too, since I;m so much a part of the evolving saga of his health, which I have to monitor every day. But I've grown stronger in every aspect of my life. In small ways: speaking more directly with people. In large ways: discovering I can handle adversity and potential loss and yet keep going. I've a better idea of my strength. I feel like I've been tested, like a willow whipped around violently in a hurricane, but still stranding, its roots strong enough to hold. [p. 301]Diane Ackerman Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Diane Ackerman: A caregiver is changed by the culture of illness, just as one is changed by
Watching the children, he noticed two things especially. A girl of about five, and her sister, who was no more than three, wanted to drink from the pebbled concrete fountain at the playground's edge, but it was too high for either of them, so the five-year-old ... jumped up and, resting her stomach on the edge and grasping the sides, began to drink. But she was neither strong enough nor oblivious enough of the pain to hand on, and she began to slip off backward. At this, the three-year-old ... advanced to her sister and, also grasping the edge of the fountain, placed her forehead against her sister's behind, straining to hold her in place, eyes closed, body trembling, curls spilling from her cap. Her sister drank for a long time, held in position by an act as fine as Harry had ever seen on the battlefields of Europe. Pg 32Mark Helprin Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Mark Helprin: Watching the children, he noticed two things especially. A girl of about five, and her
Your faith will not fail while God sustains it; you are not strong enough to fall away while God is resolved to hold you.J.I. Packer Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By J.I. Packer: Your faith will not fail while God sustains it; you are not strong enough to
I will love myself, and my body, for what it can do- because it is strong enough to lift, to walk, to ride a bicyle up a hill, to embrace the people I love and hold them fully, and to nurture a new life. I will love myself because I am sturdy. Because I did not -will not- break.Jennifer Weiner Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Jennifer Weiner: I will love myself, and my body, for what it can do- because it is
WHAT IS SAFE?
Is safe the hands that hold you no matter what?
Or is safe someone hurting enough to fight?
Is safe the one who is strong as a pillar?
Or is safe who wants to use the strength of two, not one?
Is love safe?
Or is it better to find comfort?
Can there be comfort without love?
Can passion come from warmth?
Or does it need to come from fire?
Jolene Perry Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Jolene Perry: WHAT IS SAFE? Is safe the hands that hold you no matter what? Or is
When people are insulting you, there is nothing so good for them as not to say a word - just to look at them and THINK. Miss Minchin turns pale with rage when I do it, Miss Amelia looks frightened, and so do the girls. When you will not fly into a passion people know you are stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage, and they are not, and they say stupid things they wish they hadn't said afterward. There's nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in - that's stronger. It's a good thing not to answer your enemies. I scarcely ever do. Perhaps Emily is more like meFrances Hodgson Burnett Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Frances Hodgson Burnett: When people are insulting you, there is nothing so good for them as not to
Reply implicitly upon the old, old gospel. You need no other nets when you fish for men; those your Master has given you are strong enough to hold the little ones. Spread these nets and no others, and you need not fear the fulfillment of His word, 'I will make you fishers of men.'Charles Spurgeon Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Charles Spurgeon: Reply implicitly upon the old, old gospel. You need no other nets when you fish
It was a good feeling, to beat her wings and find out they were strong enough to lift her and hold her aloft.Laura Bacchi Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Laura Bacchi: It was a good feeling, to beat her wings and find out they were strong
There is a God," I said absentmindedly as my sisters spoke of spirituality.

"Oh yeah?" Elizabeth snapped, not rudely, but in disbelief. "How do you know?"

"She told me."

"Huh?" Miaka chimed in.

"The Ocean told me. He's there. He makes the waves and the storms, She just has to be strong enough to hold them. She wouldn't need us if She could bring the storm to the ship. She is the most powerful thing we know of, and yet, She has to yield. Trust me, there is a God."

They stared at me for a while. Probably because that was the most I had said in weeks. Those words comforted me because I was tired of answering to Her, obeying Her, bending to Her. It gave me the deepest comfort I had felt in a while to remember that there was Someone, Something out there who could squash Her.
Kiera Cass Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Kiera Cass: There is a God," I said absentmindedly as my sisters spoke of spirituality."Oh yeah?" Elizabeth
Here's what we're gonna do. You're going to give me that doubt. You're just going to hand it to me, and I'm going to hold it for you. I'm going to keep it for as long as you need me to. For the rest of our lives. I will be your safe place. The place you get to be soft. Right here, just like this. When you leave my arms, you leave whole. Because you already are.
You're not broken sweetie, you're human. You're incredibly strong. You're a wonder. You'll return to your team as the warrior you've always been. And you'll know that at any time, you can come to me, and you'll know mt arms are strong enough. Sigh
Jo Leigh Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Jo Leigh: Here's what we're gonna do. You're going to give me that doubt. You're just going

And what was the second reason?" I asked him. "The what?" "Your second reason for dropping by to see me," I prompted, and his face cleared. "Oh. I wanted to ask if you would make me a cup of coffee." He smiled happily. "Iain's Scotch is terribly strong, you know, and he's generous in the pouring of it, and I was far too proud to tell him when I'd had enough. He has a habit of reminding me how Englishmen can't hold their liquor. But I don't think I'd be able to walk home right now," he confessed, "without falling into a ditch along the way.Susanna Kearsley Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Susanna Kearsley: And what was the second reason?" I asked him. "The what?" "Your second reason for
I can make it through the rain,
I can stand up once again,
on my own, and I know,
that I'm strong enough to mend,
and every time I feel afraid
I hold tighter to my faith,
and I live one more day
and I make it through the rain.
Mariah Carey Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Mariah Carey: I can make it through the rain, I can stand up once again, on my
My travels have been numerous, though no topographer could chart the shores I have landed upon. For it is not places that have been my destination, but women. I am drawn to them by a force I have never questioned. To their infinite variety of charms I am helpless. But the hold of none has been strong enough to keep me from wandering aimlessly to others.Roy L. Pickering Jr. Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Roy L. Pickering Jr.: My travels have been numerous, though no topographer could chart the shores I have landed
I want to be like water. Slip through fingers, but strong enough to hold a boat.Anonymous Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Anonymous: I want to be like water. Slip through fingers, but strong enough to hold a
I always think incipent miracles surround us, waiting only to see if our faith is strong enough. We won't have to understand it; it will just work, like a beating heart, like love. Really, no matter how frightened and discouraged I may become about the future, I look forward to it. In spite of everything I see all around me every day, I have a shaky assurance that everything will turn out fine. I don't think I'm the only one. Why else would the phrase "everything's all right" ease a deep and troubled place in so many of us? We just don't know, we never know so much, yet we have such faith. We hold our hands over our hurts and lean forward, full of yearning and forgiveness. It is how we keep on, this kind of hope.Elizabeth Berg Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Elizabeth Berg: I always think incipent miracles surround us, waiting only to see if our faith is
The measure of our mindfulness, the touchstone for sanity in this society, is our level of productivity, our attention to responsibility, our ability to plain and simple hold down a job. If you're still at the point when you're even just barely going through the motions
showing up at work, paying the bills
you are still okay or okay enough. A desire not to acknowledge sadness in ourselves or those close to us
better known these days as denial, is such a strong urge that plenty of people prefer to think that until you are actually flying out of a window, you don't have a problem.
Elizabeth Wurtzel Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Elizabeth Wurtzel: The measure of our mindfulness, the touchstone for sanity in this society, is our level
Elizabeth, what this man has done is terrible. There aren't any words that are strong enough to describe how wicked and evil he is! He has taken nine months of your life that you will never get back again. But the best punishment you could ever give him is to be happy. To move forward with your life. To do exactly what you want. Because, yes, this will probably go to trial and some kind of sentencing will be given to him and that wicked woman. But even if that's true, you may never feel like justice has been served or that true restitution has been made ...
You be happy, Elizabeth. Just be happy. If you go and feel sorry for yourself, or if you dwell on what has happened, if you hold on to your pain, that is allowing him to steal more of your life away. So don't you do that! Don't you let him! There is no way that he deserves that. Not one more second of your life. You keep every second for yourself. You keep them and be happy ...
Elizabeth Smart Strong Enough To Hold On Sayings By Elizabeth Smart: Elizabeth, what this man has done is terrible. There aren't any words that are strong
