I’m strong enough to guard the big guys and have enough heart to lock them down. ~ Jaylen Brown

I come from a family of strong women, who have been positive role models for me. ~ Laura Harrier

P. Lovecraft

A father-son relationship is strong, like no other teammates. You could be straightforward with one another. ~ Mario Andretti

If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant.

My father was a great example of a strong and good man and Christian man, and my mother taught all my six sisters how to be young ladies and mothers and how to take care of your family.

I really connect to strong feminist writers that make their ideas accessible for the rest of the world. ~ Laura Harrier

Our position is extremely perilous; if we do not earnestly promote nationalism and weld together our four hundred million into a strong nation, we face a tragedy – the loss of our country and the destruction of our race. To ward off this danger, we must espouse nationalism and employ the national spirit to save the country. ~ Sun Yat-sen

Calhoun

Where wages command labour, as in the non-slaveholding States, there necessarily takes place between labour and capital a conflict, which leads, in process of time, to disorder, anarchy, and revolution if not counteracted by some appropriate and strong constitutional provision.

Life Faith Fire Pain I think for me, or for anyone who plays the quarterback position, it’s almost an unspoken word when you think about leadership.

I never sat down and said, ‘I’m going to write historical fiction with strong romantic elements.’ It was just the way the stories went.~  Lauren Willig 

As tennis players, we work and we sacrifice many things. To lose, that’s not a happy thing – I mean sure, I was disappointed. You have to come back strong.

I feel like I can relate to that. ~ Trevor Jackson

 If the prospect of a bad result gets the heart racing – a plane crash, a terrible disease, a loss of 30 per cent of your portfolio – most people will take strong steps to avoid it.

I remember as a young man seeing these bigger-than-life, strong images of black manhood in the form of Jim Brown and Fred Williamson, Jim Kelly, Billy Dee Williams. All these guys were these alpha males who were smart, attractive. I said, ‘Wow, I want to be like that.’ ~ Michael Jai

We are strong supporters of First Amendment rights, and we believe free speech is a two-way street. While anyone is free to be an anti-Muslim bigot, on-campus or off, CAIR is free to challenge their bigotry by speaking out against the promotion of hatred and intolerance. ~ Ibrahim Hooper

Power I’m not going to get any taller, so I might as well get as strong and lean as I possibly can be. ~ Mike Daniels

President Clinton’s record of advocating for the middle class and creating millions of new jobs and opportunity for Americans is second to none.
