Quote 16

“Strength does not come from physical capacity.

It comes from indomitable will.”

-Jawharial Nehru

 
This quote reminds me of that famous adage: if there’s a will, there’s a way.

Having ‘will’ has nothing to do with how you look or how much muscle you have.

It’s about wanting to do something and doing it.

It’s about perseverance, patience, understanding, competence, love…

The strength comes from the love needed to do what is asked of us.

Sometimes, we ask ourselves to do something.

At other times, we are asked to do something.

Our physical capacity to do something might play a role in completing a task, but it does not hinder our mental capacity to figure out a way to finish it.

It’s like that jelly jar that’s so hard to open with arthritic hands.

You don’t stop because it’s impossible, you ask for help or you buy a special jar opener or you buy the jelly in another container easier to use.

If there’s a way to do something, then we will find the best way possible to do it.
 
You don't give up.
