Saul Bellow
“I see that I've become a really bad correspondent. It's not that I don't think of you. You come into my thoughts often. But when you do it appears to me that I owe you a particularly grand letter. And so you end in the "warehouse of good intentions": "Can't do it now." "Then put it on hold." This is one's strategy for coping with old age, and with death--because one can't die with so many obligations in storage. Our clever species, so fertile and resourceful in denying its weaknesses.”
Saul Bellow

Paolo Giordano
“She emptied herself of Fabio and of herself, of all the useless efforts she had made to get where she was and find nothing there. With detached curiosity she observed the rebirth of her weaknesses, her obsessions. This time she would let them decide, since she hadn't been able to do anything anyway. Against certain parts of yourself you remain powerless, she said to herself, as she regressed pleasurably to the time when she was a girl.”
Paolo Giordano, The Solitude of Prime Numbers

Vladan Desnica, Proljeća Ivana Galeba

Chaim Potok

Soke Behzad Ahmadi
“Karate is not A religion, cult or dogma. It is incumbent on every generation of martial artists, to find the weaknesses of the previous generations, not to revere it . . .”
Soke Behzad Ahmadi, Shorinjiryu Ryujin Kenpo

“Your life is a total package and it can't be treated otherwise. You must acknowledge and appreciate the things and events in your life that cannot change no matter what you do-your past, your race, your mistakes, your personality, your ancestral profile for example. Like a house built in gold; the foundation is the first to be built, yet if the gold house is on fire it will be the last to burn. They represent the foundations on which your strengths are recognized and sharpened and your weaknesses exposed and corrected.”
Asuni LadyZeal

Edmond Mbiaka

“I also often ask my guests about what they consider to be their invisible weaknesses and shortcomings. I do this because these are the characteristics that define us no less than our strengths. What we feel sets us apart from other people is often the thing that shapes us as individuals. This may be especially true of writers and actors, many of whom first started to develop their observational skills as a result of being sidelined from typical childhood or adolescent activities because of an infirmity or a feeling of not fitting in. Or so I’ve come to believe from talking to so many writers and actors over the years.”
Terry Gross, All I Did Was Ask: Conversations with Writers, Actors, Musicians, and Artists

“Having known that your weakness is another person's strength or opportunity, you're not to be around people by virtue of them understanding your weaknesses, but rather by virtue of them not creating circumstances that bring out your weaknesses.”
Nyona Matende

Dada Bhagwan
“If we clash with anyone, then it is our own weakness only.”
Dada Bhagwan

Enock Maregesi

“God can turn your weaknesses into your strength.”
Sunday Adelaja

“Mais où trouver un langage pour vous parler de nous-mêmes, à vous autres enfants, qui vous tenez silencieux dans votre coin, à nous considérer bien moins en amis qu'en juges? Ce prestige qu'il nous fallait pour vous gouverner, vous ne nous permettez plus de nous en départir. Nos qualités, vous tablez sur elles, et vous n'en prenez que ce qu'il vous plaît, tandis que nos faiblesses, vous les relevez toutes, comme autant de consécrations des vôtres.”
Jean Schlumberger, Un Homme heureux

“You do not become outstanding by working on your weaknesses You become outstanding by focusing on your strenghts.”
Gordana Biernat

Assegid Habtewold
“No one is perfect. We all have weaknesses and limitations. Some can't be fixed. But, at least, a leader shouldn't find herself blindsided...”
