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

Jeremy Aldana

Vladan Desnica
“Ljudi vole sve svoje, pa i svoje slabosti. I svoju ranjavost, i svoju zlu sreću, i svoje prokletstvo: i u tome leži jedan dio nas. I to naš najprisniji, naš najkrvaviji dio. Kako bismo ga dakle ne mogli voljeti?”
Vladan Desnica, Proljeća Ivana Galeba

Assegid Habtewold

Assegid Habtewold, The 9 Cardinal Building Blocks: For Continued Success in Leadership

“For years I was deathly afraid of my own weaknesses, but when I closed my eyes and let myself be vulnerable to them it allowed miracles to take place. Miracles that were only alive when I accessed my BLIND faith.”
Bethany Brookbank, Write like no one is reading

“Actually we tend to put a lot of emphasis on our so called weaknesses. If you look around and thereafter look inwards you’ll soon realize that no one is perfect. We have been brought up in such a way that we are conditioned to underplay our strengths to others (lest we be termed as conceited or haughty) and blow up our weaknesses to our own selves. Learn to appreciate yourself and downplay your shortcomings.”
Latika Teotia

Herman Melville
“Let us speak, though we show all our faults and weaknesses, - for it is a sign of strength to be weak, to know it, and out with it - not in a set way and ostentatiously, though, but incidentally and without premeditation.”

Enock Maregesi
“Tunapaswa kuyafikiria madhaifu yetu na dhambi zetu kwa makini sana, kwa kiasi cha kuyashinda madhaifu hayo na dhambi hizo, kabla hatujatoa maamuzi makali dhidi ya wenzetu. Tunawezaje kumlaumu mtu wakati hata sisi wenyewe tunaweza kuwa na matatizo makubwa? Tusiwe wanafiki. Badala ya kulaumu, saidia.”
Enock Maregesi

Marcia Willett
“We serve others as much by our weaknesses as by our strengths. The only difficult is that it takes humility and courage to be able to live by it.”
Marcia Willett, A Summer in the Country

“An excerpt from:

“Hypothetically Speaking”

By
Anthony T. Hincks
(A book about you and the world – coming soon!)

If I was a savvy person, I would watch, and study mankind in order to find out where his weaknesses lay.

Greed, for sure; vanity; mistrust; a tendency towards violence; fanaticism, and many other less than honorable traits and even some honorable ones which could also be used, and capitalized on.

Then, once I had found his weaknesses I would act.
I and some friends or family, not terms that I would usually use but ones that are more commonly used here on Earth, would start an empire.

Months – Years - Millennium

Who cares, for time is on my side, not yours!
I would sow mistrust; magic; wisdom; knowledge, and start many religions.

Why many religions?

Because where would the fun be by just having one, when with a whole handful you can sow hatred; do unspeakable acts all in the name of religion. That’s a lot more fun, and, besides which, it suits my purposes.

Innovation – Invention – Intelligence

All of those things would come, but only at a time of my choosing.

Decades would pass and then centuries. Wars would be fought. He against him. He against her. She against him. They against others.

I tell you, watching something come to fruition is a hell of a lot of fun.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Continuously failing does not make you a failure. It only means that your strength is in exploring your weaknesses.”
VaeEshia Ratcliff-Davis

Salman Aziz
“Finding someone’s weakness only can make you strongest in the earth but not inside you. And someday you can be in the worst situation when someone found your biggest weakness. That day you will be left with regression. Nothing can change back!”
Salman Aziz

“Humility is not weakness but a quality of strength.”

“Every superhero has a unique super power that gives them an advantage. In other words, it's OK to diversify your skills, but do not hesitate to 'fully' capitalize on your strengths.”
