Weakness quotes by Alleyne FitzHerbert, 1st Baron St Helens
#1. When dealing with Canadians, it is advantageous to seem to be negotiating from a position of weakness, for when faced with an abject opponent, they become concession-happy and will accede to almost anything. #Quote by Alleyne FitzHerbert, 1st Baron St Helens
Weakness quotes by Edward Rutherfurd
#2. Human nature, gentleman. It is original sin that leads men to misfortune, every time. I am a speculator in the market, gentlemen, and that is part of God's plan. Men only learn through suffering. So I punish human weakness, and God rewards me. #Quote by Edward Rutherfurd
Weakness quotes by Pat McBride
#3. When we are angry, we will use a lie as fast as a truth if we can hurt with it. Anger feels strong but it is actually a disguised weakness. To someone with their eyes closed, all the pictures that you show them will seem the same. It is better to whisper words of love instead of trying to find a better picture. The end of a relationship is not a failure any more than the end of a book is a failure. #Quote by Pat McBride
Weakness quotes by Ikechukwu Izuakor
#4. Weeping can be classified as either a sign of weakness or a sign of strength by what you do after the weeping. #Quote by Ikechukwu Izuakor
Weakness quotes by Greil Marcus
#5. Renee's self-possession, her ability to possess other selves, is a measure of the weakness of her husband, his inability to stop his own self from splitting in half. #Quote by Greil Marcus
Weakness quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#6. Life before Death.
Strength before Weakness.
Journey before Destination. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Weakness quotes by Anatole France
#7. We love truly only those we love even in their weakness and their poverty. To forbear, to forgive, to console, that alone is the science of love. #Quote by Anatole France
Weakness quotes by Aleksandr Voinov
#8. Dan didn't want to say anything, but the words were unstoppable. "I fucking love you. Don't leave me. You've got to find me." Again, fucking tears. Vadim shook his head, then pressed his face into the crook of Dan's shoulder, hoped to hide his weakness and felt like a man condemned to die.
"I will ... find you. If it's the last thing I'll do, I'll come back. Nothing will stop me. #Quote by Aleksandr Voinov
Weakness quotes by K.M. Morgan
#9. Even though she was annoyed that Shamus had trashed the apartment like a wayward rock star, Daisy had a weakness for Shamus. He #Quote by K.M. Morgan
Weakness quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#10. Indeed, it is a sign of marked political weakness in any
commonwealth if the people tend to be carried away by mere oratory, if they
tend to value words in and for themselves, as divorced from the deeds for which
they are supposed to stand. The phrase-maker, the phrase-monger, the ready
talker, however great his power, whose speech does not make for courage,
sobriety, and right understanding, is simply a noxious element in the body
politic, and it speaks ill for the public if he has influence over them. To admire
the gift of oratory without regard to the moral quality behind the gift is to do
wrong to the republic. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Weakness quotes by Edward B. Burger
#11. Mistakes and failure are not signs of weakness; instead they are opportunities for future success. Failure is a sign of a creative mind, of original thought and strength. #Quote by Edward B. Burger
Weakness quotes by Stanley Kubrick
#12. The reality of the final moment, just before shooting [the scene], is so powerful that all previous analysis must yield before the impressions you receive under these circumstances, and unless you use this feedback to your positive advantage, unless you adjust to it, adapt to it and accept the sometimes terrifying weaknesses it can expose, you can never realize the most out of your film. #Quote by Stanley Kubrick
Weakness quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#13. Never reproach him with his own weakness, for then he will become wholly weak. Never let him feel that but for you he would be useless, for then he will indeed become useless. You must search for the few strong threads in him and weave your fabric with those, and where the threads are weak, never trust to them. Supply your own in secret. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Weakness quotes by George R R Martin
#14. Trueborn children are made in a marriage bed and blessed by the Father and the Mother, but bastards are born of lust and weakness. #Quote by George R R Martin
Weakness quotes by Kendare Blake
#15. Cas does have a weakness for girls who can kick his ass. #Quote by Kendare Blake
Weakness quotes by George R R Martin
#16. Let me give you some counsel, bastard," Lannister said. "Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you."
Jon was in no mood for anyone's counsel. "What do you know about being a bastard?"
"All dwarfs are bastards in their father's eyes. #Quote by George R R Martin
Weakness quotes by Pierre Corneille
#17. Flee an enemy who knows your weakness. #Quote by Pierre Corneille
Weakness quotes by R.A. Rooney
#18. I was so thankful He gave me this chance to enter a painting, for painting was my weakness. If I could do only two things in this world, I would choose to paint. And breathe, but painting came first. #Quote by R.A. Rooney
Weakness quotes by Anthony Powell

Weakness quotes by Donald Miller
#20. I need for there to be something bigger than me. I need someone to put awe inside me; I need to come second to someone who has everything figured out. #Quote by Donald Miller
Weakness quotes by J.C. Cooper
#21. Next to the dragon, and connected with it, water is the most frequently used symbol in Taosim. It is the strength in apparent weakness, the fluidity of life, an also symbolic of the state of coolness of judgment, acceptance and passionlessness, as opposed to the heat of argument, the friction of opposition, and the emotion of desire. Water fertilizes, refreshes and purifies and it is symbolic of gentle persuasion in government of the state and the individual. It occupies the lowest position, yet is the most powerful of forces. The highest goodness in like water. #Quote by J.C. Cooper
Weakness quotes by Charles Dickens
#22. At last the sun rose, and then my companions seemed to sleep easier. The difficulties under which they had laboured all night, and which had found utterance in the most terrific gasps and snorts, are not to be conceived. As the sun got higher, their sleep became lighter, and so they gradually one by one awoke. I recollect being very much surprised by the feint everybody made, then, of not having been to sleep at all, and by the uncommon indignation with which everyone repelled the charge. I labour under the same kind of astonishment to this day, having invariably observed that of all human weaknesses, the one to which our common nature is the least disposed to confess (I cannot imagine why) is the weakness of having gone to sleep in a coach. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Weakness quotes by Marty Rubin
#23. It is a weakness to suffer when you don't have to. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Weakness quotes by Lindy West
#24. Never mind the fact that coding sensitivity as a weakness is bizarre (what do you think this is-the Ministry of Magic under Voldemort's shadow government?), it's also simply out of step with reality. You can't do this job if you have an emotional hair trigger. Undersensitivity is practically a prerequisite. #Quote by Lindy West
Weakness quotes by Mae West
#25. I've always had a weakness for foreign affairs. #Quote by Mae West
Weakness quotes by Jeremy Aldana
#26. A man's spirit is free, but his pride binds him with chains of suffocation in a prison of his own insecurities #Quote by Jeremy Aldana
Weakness quotes by Trisscar
#27. So someone asked me what some of my weakness were. And I responded to them saying my fears. They proceeded to ask me what my fears were. So I told them that I feared love. So he asked me how I could fear love.

I told him how could I not? Love changes a person in unimaginable ways. It forces you to want to protect someone, to hold them, to never have them feel pain. It forces you to just...go crazy. Media these days -- especially romantic comedies portray love to be some magical thing where there are cupcakes and unicorns. Its not. Its suffering, its pain, and its a hell lot of tears. And when you love someone, when you genuinely let them in your heart and take down all your walls...everything goes downhill. Everything...its over. You burden them with your problems, you make them suffer, you kill them. So why do I fear love? Because I'm afraid of hurting people. I'm afraid that after I let ʜɪᴍ in, and after he broke me...I'm afraid I won't be able to heal myself this time.

Yeah I'm a scared pussy. Go ahead and call me that all you want. It doesn't change anything. I'm a selfish, scared, bastard. And I can't do anything about it. #Quote by Trisscar
Weakness quotes by Bas Rutten
#28. Fedor has no weakness. I have seen so many fights, and even the best fighters in the world have a flaw in their game but I have yet to find one in Fedor Emelianenko. #Quote by Bas Rutten
Weakness quotes by Jose Rizal
#29. Yes, nitroglycerin," Simoun repeated slowly, with a frigid smile, staring at the glass flask with delight. "It's more than nitroglycerin, however. It's a concentration of tears, compressed, hatred, injustices, offenses. This is the supreme arbiter of weakness, force against force, violence against violence ... a moment ago I was hesitating, but then you arrived and convinced me. Tonight those most dangerous of tyrants who have hidden behind God and the state, whose abuses remain unpunished because no one can take them to task. Tonight, the Philippines will hear an explosion that will convert into rubble the infamous monument whose rottenness I helped bring about. #Quote by Jose Rizal
Weakness quotes by George Crabbe
#30. From powerful causes spring the empiric's gains, Man's love of life, his weakness, and his pains; These first induce him the vile trash to try, Then lend his name, that other men may buy. #Quote by George Crabbe
Weakness quotes by Frank Broyles
#31. Our strength is that we don't have any weaknesses. Our weakness is that we don't have any real strengths. #Quote by Frank Broyles
Weakness quotes by Simone Weil
#32. The essential characteristic of the first half of the twentieth century is the growing weakness, and almost the disappearance, of the idea of value. #Quote by Simone Weil
Weakness quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#33. To demand of strength that it should not express itself as strength, that it should not be a desire to overcome, a desire to throw down, a desire to become master, a thirst for enemies and resistances and triumphs, is just as absurd as to demand of weakness that it should express itself as strength. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Weakness quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#34. Later on in Culture and Society, Williams scores a few points by reprinting some absolutist sentences that, taken on their own, represent exaggerations or generalisations. It was a strength and weakness of Orwell's polemical journalism that he would begin an essay with a bold and bald statement designed to arrest attention - a tactic that, as Williams rightly notices, he borrowed in part from GK Chesterton and George Bernard Shaw. No regular writer can re-read his own output of ephemera without encountering a few wince-making moments of this kind; Williams admits to 'isolating' them but has some fun all the same. The flat sentence 'a humanitarian is always a hypocrite' may contain a particle of truth - does in fact contain such a particle - but will not quite do on its own. Other passages of Orwell's, on the failure of the Western socialist movement, read more convincingly now than they did when Williams was mocking them, but are somewhat sweeping for all that. And there are the famous outbursts of ill-temper against cranks and vegetarians and homosexuals, which do indeed disfigure the prose and (even though we still admire Pope and Swift for the heroic unfairness of their invective) probably deserve rebuke. However, Williams betrays his hidden bias even when addressing these relatively easy targets. He upbraids Orwell for the repeated use of the diminutive word 'little' as an insult ('The typical Socialist ... a prim little man,' 'the typical little bowlerhatted sneak,' etc. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Weakness quotes by Elizabeth I
#35. Grief never ends, but it changes. It is a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith: it is the price of love. #Quote by Elizabeth I
Weakness quotes by Joseph Conrad
#36. They were no colonists; their administration was merely a squeeze, and nothing more, I suspect. They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force - nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others. They grabbed what they could get for the sake of what was to be got. It was just robbery with violence, aggravated murder on a great scale, and men going at it blind - as is very proper for those who tackle a darkness. The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much. What redeems it is the idea only. An idea at the back of it; not a sentimental pretence but an idea; and an unselfish belief in the idea - something you can set up, and bow down before, and offer a sacrifice to #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Weakness quotes by Germaine De Stael
#37. Sensibility, imagination, reason, each is subservient to the other. Every one of these faculties would be nothing but a disease, but weakness, instead of strength, if it were not modified or completed by the collective character of our nature. #Quote by Germaine De Stael
Weakness quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#38. Creativity connects me to my truest self and vulnerability. There is nothing more personally liberating, than reaching for my face and peeling off the social mask that hides my; shadow self, pain and weakness. When i produce from this place of truth, the results transform both creator and beholder. #Quote by Jaeda DeWalt
Weakness quotes by Naoyuki Ochiai
#39. Is it a crime to be strong?' That's something you might have asked. And I would have answered by asking the opposite question ... 'Is it a crime to be weak? #Quote by Naoyuki Ochiai
Weakness quotes by Sarah Van Waterschoot
#40. Jealousy shows weakness and we must be strong to except ourselves for who we truly are. #Quote by Sarah Van Waterschoot
Weakness quotes by T. Mills
#41. Being vulnerable, in my opinion, is not a weakness. It's being human. It is allowing yourself to not have all the answers. #Quote by T. Mills
Weakness quotes by Christopher Paolini
#42. If you could have stopped it, or if you could have escaped but you didn't, then you would have lost my respect. But you did everything you could, and when you could do no more, you made peace with your fate, and you didn't rail needlessly against it. That is wisdom, not weakness. #Quote by Christopher Paolini
Weakness quotes by Paul Kagame
#43. Let no one think that flexibility and a predisposition to compromise is a sign of weakness or a sell-out. #Quote by Paul Kagame
Weakness quotes by Steven Erikson
#44. Age was a demon, a haunting that slipped into the bones whispering weakness and frailty. It stole his muscles, his agility, and the quickness of his wit. It seemed a miserable reward for surviving, all things told, which was proof enough that life was a fool's bargain. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Weakness quotes by Andy Stanley
#45. Kindness is love's response to weakness #Quote by Andy Stanley
Weakness quotes by Oswald Chambers
#46. An unguarded strength is a double weakness. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Weakness quotes by Alain De Botton
#47. Perhaps because the origins of a certain kind of love lie in an impulse to escape ourselves and out weaknesses by an alliance with the beautiful and noble. But if the loved ones love us back, we are forced to return to ourselves, and are hence reminded of the things that had driven us into love in the first place. Perhaps it was not love we wanted after all, perhaps it was simply someone in whom to believe, but how can we continue to believe the the beloved now that they believe in us? #Quote by Alain De Botton
Weakness quotes by James Allen
#48. Even at birth the soul comes to its own and through every step of its earthly pilgrimage it attracts those combinations of conditions which reveal itself, which are the reflections of its own purity and, impurity, its strength and weakness. Men #Quote by James Allen
Weakness quotes by Eric Jerome Dickey
#49. fear is weakness uncontrolled! #Quote by Eric Jerome Dickey
Weakness quotes by Mignon McLaughlin
#50. Our strenght is often composed of the weakness we're damned if we're going to show. #Quote by Mignon McLaughlin
Weakness quotes by Johann Georg Ritter Von Zimmermann
#51. The weak may be joked out of anything but their weakness. #Quote by Johann Georg Ritter Von Zimmermann
Weakness quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#52. Going for character: why not now, and where you stand? #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Weakness quotes by Mooji
#53. Surrender is not a weakness it is strength.It takes tremendous strength to surrender life to the supreme - to the cosmic unfolding. #Quote by Mooji
Weakness quotes by Ka Chinery
#54. Your observations and conclusions are mirrored illusions of your inner state of being, teaching you truth through falsehoods, strength through weakness and clarity through confusion. You are seeing your Self now, disguised as the world through a lens of denial, but you will soon come to realize that what you choose to deny in yourself manifests into your world. The flaws you see in your world are your most powerful teachers. #Quote by Ka Chinery
Weakness quotes by John Piper
#55. I want you to see persecution and opposition and slander and misunderstanding and disappointment and self-recrimination and weakness and danger as the normal portion of faithful pastoral ministry. #Quote by John Piper
Weakness quotes by Rumi
#56. Being desirable means being comfortable with your own ambiguity. The most ambiguous reality is that we are flesh and spirit at the same time. Within everyone there is light and shadow, good and evil, love and hate. In order to be truthful, you must embrace your total being. A person who exhibits both positive and negative qualities, strengths and weaknesses is not flawed, but complete. #Quote by Rumi
Weakness quotes by Napoleon Hill
#57. Without doubt, the most common weakness of all human beings is the habit of leaving their minds open to the negative influence of other people. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Weakness quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#58. There is no room for ignorance among the knowledgeable,
no room for nonsense among the practical,
no room for fear among the formidable,
no room for haste among the gentle,
no room for dishonesty among the noble,
no room for indecency among the honorable,
no room for insolence among the respectful,
and no room for secrecy among the truthful.

And there is also no room for hubris among the humble,
no room for indecision among the stable,
no room for weakness among the powerful,
no room for distrust among the reliable,
no room for intolerance among the hospitable,
no room for stinginess among the charitable,
no room for wrath among the amiable,
and no room for strife among the affable. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Weakness quotes by Mary Gaitskill
#59. I don't mean you should despise people for being weak, if it's a kind of weakness they can't help. But when they're weak on purpose, it's another thing. When they don't even try. When they let people hurt them and don't fight back. It's gross. It's letting down the whole human race. #Quote by Mary Gaitskill
Weakness quotes by Riley Murphy
#60. Jo Nehr, in Required Surrender, There is no weakness in being one man's everything. #Quote by Riley Murphy
Weakness quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#61. He just asked questions, especially to begin a conversation, as if he knew nothing. In the course of the discussion he would generally get his opponents to recognize the weakness of their arguments, and, forced into a corner, they would finally be obliged to realize what was right and what was wrong. #Quote by Jostein Gaarder
Weakness quotes by Suzanne Collins
#62. Haymitch isn't thinking of arenas, but something else. "Johanna's back in the hospital."
I assumed Johanna was fine, had passed her exam, but simply wasn't assigned to a sharp shooters' unit. She's wicked with a throwing axe but about average with a gun. "Is she hurt? What happened?"
"It was while she was on the Block. They try to ferret out a soldier's potential weakness. So they flooded the street, " says Haymitch.
This doesn't help. Johanna can swim. At least, I seem to remember her swimming around some in the Quarter Quell. Not like Finnick, of course, but none of us are like Finnick. "So?"
"That's how they tortured her in the Capitol. Soaked her then used electric shocks," says Haymitch. "In the Block, she had some kind of flashback. Panicked, didn't know where she was. She's back under sedation."
Finnick and I just stand there as if we've lost the ability to respond.
I think of the way Johanna never showers. How she forced herself into the rain like it was acid that day. I had attributed her misery to morphling withdrawal.
"You two should go see her. You're as close to friends as she's got," says Haymitch.
That makes the whole thing worse. I don't really know what's between Johanna and Finnick, but I hardly know her. No family. No friends.Not so much as a token from District 7 to set beside her regulation clothes in her anonymous drawer.
Nothing. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Weakness quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#63. The dying tapers off now and then, but the War is still killing lots and lots of people. Only right now it is killing them in more subtle ways. Often in ways that are too complicated, even for us, at this level, to trace. But the right people are dying, just as they do when armies fight. The ones who stand up, in Basic, in the middle of the machine-gun pattern. The ones who do not have faith in their Sergeants. The ones who slip and show a moment's weakness to the Enemy. These are the ones the War cannot use, and so they die. The right ones survive. The others, it's said, even know they have a short life expectancy. But they persist in acting the way that they do. Nobody knows why. Wouldn't it be nice if we could eliminate them completely? Then no one would have to be killed in the War. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Weakness quotes by Paulo Freire
#64. P26 - Only power that springs from the weakness of the oppressed will be sufficiently strong to free both. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Weakness quotes by Victoria Vane
#65. I'm not one of your mustangs. I don't need saving."
"Don't you?" she asked softly. "It's not a weakness or a character flaw. It's human nature to need someone. We all do. You need this, Keith. These horses need you. And I need you. #Quote by Victoria Vane
Weakness quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#66. Rarely use Venery but for Health or Offspring; Never to Dulness, Weakness, or the Injury of your own or another's Peace or Reputation. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Weakness quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#67. What the song expressed so perfectly from lyric to melody was unrequited love, and we men of the south loved nothing more than unrequited love, cracked hearts our primary weakness after cigarettes, coffee, and cognac. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Weakness quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#68. As important as it is for all members of a leadership team to commit to being vulnerable, that is not going to happen if the leader of the team, whether that person is the CEO, department head, pastor, or school principal, does not go first. If the team leader is reluctant to acknowledge his or her mistakes or fails to admit to a weakness that is evident to everyone else, there is little hope that other members of the team are going to take that step themselves. In fact, it probably wouldn't be advisable for them to do so because there is a good chance that their vulnerability would be neither encouraged nor rewarded. #Quote by Patrick Lencioni
Weakness quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#69. Never allow weakness to overtake your mind. Remember Mahavira, remember the Divine Mother! And you will see that all weakness, all cowardice will vanish at once. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Weakness quotes by Pierce Brown
#70. I took his hand, he took a friend. All he has done is bite and claw for his own survival. Watching him now, so small and plain in a world of gods, it's almost as if he's the hero nobly struggling against a father who rejected him, against a Society that laughs at his size, his weakness, and scorns him as a cannibal even though it was they who told him to do whatever he had to do to win. #Quote by Pierce Brown
Weakness quotes by Suzanne Collins
#71. Having an eye for beauty isn't the same thing as a weakness ... except possibly when it comes to you. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Weakness quotes by Jude Morgan
#72. Anne's is a world very like this one, and you can move about in it with familiarity - but not freedom: it is a place of rigorous consequence, where the weak have to give way to the strong, where her governess heroine Agnes must walk as best she can in the cold shade of money and masculinity. #Quote by Jude Morgan
Weakness quotes by Savitri Devi
#73. A 'civilization' that makes such a ridiculous fuss about alleged 'war crimes' - acts of violence against the actual or potential enemies of one's cause - and tolerates slaughterhouses and vivisection laboratories, and circuses and the fur industry (infliction of pain upon creatures that can never be for or against any cause), does not deserve to live. #Quote by Savitri Devi
Weakness quotes by Tad Williams
#74. You show her respect. That is a good thing," he said. "Too often it is that men think those who serve are doing it from inferiorness or weakness. #Quote by Tad Williams
Weakness quotes by Ron Clark
#75. 2-Make eye contact. When someone is speaking, keep your eyes on him or her at all times. If someone makes a comment, turn and face that person.

3-During discussions, respect other students' comments, opinions, and ideas. When possible, make statements like, "I agree with John, and I also feel that…" or "I disagree with Sarah. She made a good point I feel that…" or "I think Victor made an excellent observation, and it made me realize…"

4-If you win or do well at something, do not brag. If you lose, do not show anger. Instead, say something like, "I really enjoyed the competition, and I look forward to playing you again," or "good game," or don't say anything at all. To show anger or sarcasm, such as "I wasn't playing hard anyway" or "You really aren't that good," shows weakness.

5-"When you cough or sneeze or burp, it is appropriate to turn your head away from others and cover your mouth with the full part of your hand. Using a fist is not acceptable. Afterward, you should say, "Excuse me."

6- "Do not smack your lips, tsk, roll your eyes, or show disrespect with gestures."

7-"Always say thank you when I give you something.

8-"Surprise others by performing random acts of kindness. Go our of your way to do something surprisingly kind and generous for someone at least once a month."

9-"You will make every effort to be as organized as possible."

10-"Quickly learn the name of other tea #Quote by Ron Clark
Weakness quotes by James Boswell
#76. Quoting Samuel Johnson: Men know that women are an overmatch for them, and therefore they choose the weakest or the most ignorant. If they did not think so, they never could be afraid of women knowing as much as themselves. #Quote by James Boswell
Weakness quotes by Joanna Russ
#77. Now in my eleven years of conventional life I had learned many things and one of them is what it means to be convicted of rape--I do not mean the man who did it, I mean the woman to whom it was done. Rape is one of the Christian mysteries, it creates a luminous and beautiful tableau in people's minds; and as I listened furtively to what nobody would allow me to hear straight out, I slowly came to understand that I was face to face with one of those feminine disasters, like pregnancy, like disease, like weakness; she was not only the victim of the act but in some strange way its perpetrator; somehow she had attracted the lightening that struck her out of a clear sky. A diabolical chance--which was not chance--had revealed her to all of us as she truly was, in her secret inadequacy, in that wretched guiltiness which she had kept hidden for seventeen years but which now finally manifested in front of everybody. Her secret guilt was this:
She was Cunt.
She had "lost" something.
Now the other party to the incident had manifested his essential nature, too; he was Prick--but being Prick is not a bad thing. In fact, he had "gotten away with" something (possibly what she had "lost").
And there I was at eleven years of age:
She was out late at night.
She was in the wrong part of town.
Her skirt was too short and that provoked him.
She liked having her eye blacked and her head banged against the sidewalk.
I understood this perfectly. (I refle #Quote by Joanna Russ

#78. What we had actually demonstrated was our cowardice, but there is fellowship in that too. #Quote by Clifford Geertz

#79. The drugs are my weakness, but the music is my strength. Sometimes, I forget that. #Quote by C.M. Stunich
Weakness quotes by Brigitte Nicole
#80. Some people's weakness is that they care too much; it is also their strength. #Quote by Brigitte Nicole
Weakness quotes by Baka_usagi
#81. That's why I hate the concept of falling in love. It makes you weak. It takes away your strength. Your power. Your rational sense. EVERYTHING. #Quote by Baka_usagi
Weakness quotes by Wayde Goodall
#82. Your greatest area of leadership often comes out of your greatest area of pain and weakness. #Quote by Wayde Goodall
Weakness quotes by Owen   Johnson
#83. Brockhurst, the champion of individualism, was soon launched on his favorite topic.

"The great fault of the American nation, which is the fault of republics, is the reduction of everything to the average. Our universities are simply the expression of the forces that are operating outside. We are business colleges purely and simply, because we as a nation have only one ideal - the business ideal."

"That's a big statement," said Regan.

"It's true. Twenty years ago we had the ideal of the lawyer, of the doctor, of the statesman, of the gentleman, of the man of letters, of the soldier. Now the lawyer is simply a supernumerary enlisting under any banner for pay; the doctor is overshadowed by the specialist with his business development of the possibilities of the rich; we have politicians, and politics are deemed impossible for a gentleman; the gentleman cultured, simple, hospitable, and kind, is of the dying generation; the soldier is simply on parade."

"Wow!" said Ricketts, jingling his chips. "They're off."

"Everything has conformed to business, everything has been made to pay. Art is now a respectable career - to whom? To the business man. Why? Because a profession that is paid $3,000 to $5,000 a portrait is no longer an art, but a blamed good business. The man who cooks up his novel according to the weakness of his public sells a hundred thousand copies. Dime novel? No; published by our most conservative publishers - one #Quote by Owen Johnson
Weakness quotes by Annette Marie
#84. Love was both a great strength and a great weakness. She would try to remember that. #Quote by Annette Marie
Weakness quotes by Unknown Author 47
#85. I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being. #Quote by Unknown Author 47
Weakness quotes by Ulisses Soares
#86. It is possible to change, it is possible to leave weakness behind. #Quote by Ulisses Soares
Weakness quotes by Mark Lawrence
#87. Sometimes I wished I could cut away old memories and let the wind take them. If a sharp knife could pare away the weakness of those days, I would slice until nothing but the hard lessons remained. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Weakness quotes by Shusaku Endo
#88. In order to pile weakness upon weakness he was trying to drag others along the path that he himself had walked. #Quote by Shusaku Endo
Weakness quotes by Martin Luther
#89. When I was abandoned by everybody, in my greatest weakness, trembling and afraid of death, when I was persecuted by this wicked world, then I often felt most surely the divine power in this name, Jesus Christ ... So, by God's grace, I will live and die for that name. #Quote by Martin Luther
Weakness quotes by Wendy Higgins
#90. We had a secret knowledge that demons couldn't fathom. They saw love as a weakness, but they were wrong. Love would keep us going, love was our strength. #Quote by Wendy Higgins
Weakness quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#91. You cannot let go of anything if you cannot notice that you are holding it. Admit your 'weaknesses' and watch them morph into your greatest strengths. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Weakness quotes by Ahmed Yassin
#92. The Hamas has taken the path of avoiding causing harm to Zionist interests outside of Palestine, not from weakness or lack of ability to do so, but because Hamas does not wish for further fronts to be opened against it around the world #Quote by Ahmed Yassin
Weakness quotes by Mita Jain
#93. Weakness is weaker when discovered by others. #Quote by Mita Jain
Weakness quotes by Babe Paley
#94. I like the sudden shock of non-sequitur color. Color, in fact, is my weakness. #Quote by Babe Paley
Weakness quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#95. Wrongs are often forgiven, but contempt never is. Our pride remembers it forever. It implies a discovery of weakness, which we are more careful to conceal than a crime. Many a man will confess his crimes to a friend; but I never knew a man that would tell his silly weaknesses to his most intimate one. #Quote by Lord Chesterfield
Weakness quotes by Hume Cronyn
#96. I do a lot of planning and plotting. That's my greatest weakness. If I'm not terribly careful, I'll plan to a point where it could come out cut and dried. #Quote by Hume Cronyn
Weakness quotes by Greg Plitt
#97. Weakness leaves, pride comes in. Confidence grows. Successful life. #Quote by Greg Plitt
Weakness quotes by Veronica Roth
#98. And everyone saw me. Tobias saw me.
I hear footsteps. Tobias marches toward me and wrenches me to my feet.
"What the hell was that, Stiff?"
"I ... " My breath comes in a hiccup. "I didn't-"
"Get yourself together! This is pathetic."
Something within me snaps. My tears stop. Heat races through my body, driving the weakness out of me, and I smack him so hard my knuckles burn with the impact. He stares at me, one side of his face bright with blush-blood, and I stare back.
"Shut up," I say. I yank my arm from his grasp and walk out of the room. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Weakness quotes by Joni Eareckson Tada
#99. There is this fine line between presenting to You all of my weakness and thinking that it can't be done. In Your strength, I find my own. #Quote by Joni Eareckson Tada
Weakness quotes by Richard Rohr
#100. Heartbreaks, disappointments and even our own weaknesses can serve as stepping-stones to the second half of life transformation. Failings are the foundation for growth. Those who have fallen, failed or 'gone down' are the only ones who understand 'up.' #Quote by Richard Rohr
Weakness quotes by Jennifer Granholm
#101. Don't mistake niceness for weakness. #Quote by Jennifer Granholm
Weakness quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#102. Weakness is the only fault that is incorrigible. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Weakness quotes by Ryan Holiday
#103. True will is quiet humility, resilience, and flexibility; the other kind of will is weakness disguised by bluster and ambition. #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Weakness quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#104. The Southerner is usually tolerant of those weaknesses that proceed from innocence. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Weakness quotes by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
#105. The heart itself is beyond control. That is its power, and its weakness. #Quote by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Weakness quotes by Amy Tan
#106. The only thing certain in times of great uncertainty is that people will behave with great strength or weakness, and with very little else in between. #Quote by Amy Tan
Weakness quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#107. I don't think giving up is a sign of weakness. Sometimes it's about self-preservation. #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Weakness quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#108. I believe in the power of Jesus Christ to resolve any difficulty, to remove any weakness, to heal any disease. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Weakness quotes by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
#109. The weakness in a model in which one assumes that the electorate gets what it needs from Bill Clinton is that our system doesn't institutionalize the oppositional voice, and one needs to be able to hear the exchange of the debate in order to create an informed electorate. #Quote by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
Weakness quotes by Toni Nadal
#110. Endure, put up with whatever comes your way, learn to overcome weakness and pain, push yourself to breaking point but never cave in. If you don't learn that lesson, you'll never succeed as an elite athlete. #Quote by Toni Nadal
Weakness quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#111. That's a man's vital spot, the helpless thing he loves. ("Jane Brown's Body") #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Weakness quotes by Mateo Sol
#112. As children, a great number of us were taught by our parents, carers, extended family members, and teachers, that showing any form of emotional vulnerability was "not OK." We were conditioned to believe that in order to be acceptable as human beings, we had to be like the other children. We were taught to "suck it up," "stop being cry babies," "get thicker skin," "stop being so sensitive" and go participate with the other kids, even if they overwhelmed us with their energy. #Quote by Mateo Sol
Weakness quotes by Swati Kumar
#113. We gradually accepted each other with our strengths and weaknesses. And now, I think, we have started to enjoy our differences more #Quote by Swati Kumar
Weakness quotes by John Elkington
#114. The biggest weakness of the green-consumer movement, always, is that we tend to pick the easy-to-do things because that's where we can most readily engage people. It doesn't cost them very much to switch products or whatever it happens to be. #Quote by John Elkington
Weakness quotes by Victor Serge
#115. With his worn-out lungs, his obstinate self-effacement, his bookish timidity, Broux is nonetheless a strong man; by means of his awareness of how impossible it is to live, he raises himself precisely to a higher possibility of living, to an endurance which is more sure of itself because it believes it has nothing more to lose. From his weakness he was able to create a strength; from his despair, an acquiescence; from his acquiescence, a hope... #Quote by Victor Serge
Weakness quotes by Albert Camus
#116. We all have a weakness for beauty. #Quote by Albert Camus

Weakness quotes by Javier Marias
#118. For me that's the only way of understanding a particular term that everyone here bandies about quite happily, but which clearly can't be quite that straight forward because it doesn't exist in many languages, only in Italian and Spanish, as far as I know, but then again, I don't know that many languages. Perhaps in German too, although I can't be sure: el enamoramiento--the state of falling or being in love, or perhaps infatuation. I'm referring to the noun, the concept; the adjective, the condition, are admittedly more familiar, at least in French, although not in English, but there are words that approximate that meaning ... We find a lot of people funny, people who amuse and charm us and inspire affection and even tenderness, or who please us, captivate us, and can even make us momentarily mad, we enjoy their body and their company or both those things, as is the case for me with you and as I've experienced before with other women, on other occasions, although only a few. Some become essential to us, the force of habit is very strong and ends up replacing or even supplanting almost everything else. It can supplant love, for example, but not that state of being in love, it's important to distinguish between the two things, they're easily confused, but they're not the same ... It's very rare to have a weakness, a genuine weakness for someone, and for that someone to provoke in us that feeling of weakness. #Quote by Javier Marias
Weakness quotes by Marie Brennan
#119. You and I are not held to the same standards, Andrew. People will forgive a slip, a weakness, a minor personal folly - when it comes from a man. They may click their tongues at you, even gossip about your behavior…but at worst, it will only reflect on you.

"If I misstep, it goes far beyond me. Errors on my part are proof that women are unsuited to professional work. #Quote by Marie Brennan
Weakness quotes by Kevin O'Leary
#120. My partners ... taught me that in order to create wealth, I needed to pair up with people whose strengths compensated for my weaknesses. #Quote by Kevin O'Leary
Weakness quotes by Nalini Singh
#121. Never lose your heart, Elena. No matter if the world tells you it makes you weak. Immortals have so much power. It is good to have a weakness. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Weakness quotes by Burning Spear
#122. The kind of music I'm dealing with is more a long-term music. Sometimes a little discourage runs along on your thought, but I am here to push it back. Discourage is a sign of weakness, and I don't like to be weak. #Quote by Burning Spear
Weakness quotes by Henry Van Dyke
#123. Subjection to fear is weakness, bondage, feverish unrest. To be afraid is to have no soul that we can call our own; it is to be at the beck and call of alien powers, to be chained and driven and tormented; it is to lose the life itself in the anxious care to keep it. #Quote by Henry Van Dyke
Weakness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#124. Whether you are aged or weak, you can still serve the Lord #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Weakness quotes by John M. Frame
#125. God is a logical, rational being, though he does not necessarily conform to the laws of any human system of logic. The laws of logic are an aspect of his own character. Being logical is his nature and his pleasure. So the fact that he cannot be illogical is not a weakness. It may not be fairly described as a lack of power. Indeed it is a mark of his great power that he always acts and thinks consistently, that he can never be pushed into the inconsistencies that plague human life. #Quote by John M. Frame
Weakness quotes by Claire Weekes
#126. Strength is not born from strength. Strength can be born only from weakness. So be glad of your weaknesses now, they are the beginnings of your strength. #Quote by Claire Weekes
Weakness quotes by Petra Hermans
#127. Misleading and deceiving people are addicted

Weakness quotes by Naoyuki Ochiai
#128. Those who are not free to live as they choose are second class citizens. The weak will lose everything to the strong, even their lives. #Quote by Naoyuki Ochiai
Weakness quotes by Gerald R. Ford
#129. A strong defense is the surest way to peace. Strength makes detente attainable. Weakness invites war, as my generationmy generationknows from four very bitter experiences. Just as Americas will for peace is second to none, so will Americas strength be second to none. We cannot rely on the forbearance of others to protect this Nation. The power and diversity of the Armed Forces, active Guard and Reserve, the resolve of our fellow citizens, the flexibility in our command to navigate international waters that remain troubled are all essential to our security. #Quote by Gerald R. Ford
Weakness quotes by Starhawk
#130. Patriarchy values the hard over the soft; the tough over the tender; punishment, vengeance, and vindictiveness over compassion, negotiation, and reconciliation. The 'hard' qualities are linked to power, success, and masculinity - and exalted. The 'soft' qualities are identified with weakness, powerlessness, and femininity - and denigrated. #Quote by Starhawk
Weakness quotes by Jad Alhadad
#131. The Days tried to put inside me " weakness ... " .. But my soul will always beat " strength". #Quote by Jad Alhadad
Weakness quotes by George W. Bush
#132. The action we take and the decisions we make in this decade will have consequences far into this century. If America shows weakness and uncertainty, the world will drift toward tragedy. That will not happen on my watch. #Quote by George W. Bush
Weakness quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#133. * General Napoleon says that 'Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.' Well, I suggest doing the opposite: Interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. Don't be opportunist; don't benefit from the weakness of your enemy! Be just even to your enemy! Try to find a way to defeat him without harming him; prove to be as intelligent as to find such a way! Only then, your victory will be meaningful and honourable! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Weakness quotes by Peter Drucker
#134. Cultivate a deep understanding of yourself - not only what your strengths and weaknesses are but also how you learn, how you work with others, what your values are, and where you can make the greatest contribution. Because only when you operate from strengths can you achieve true excellence. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Weakness quotes by George MacDonald
#135. To be unable to bear disapproval was an unworthy weakness. But in her case it came nowise of the pride which blame stirs to resentment, but altogether of the self-depreciation which disapproval rouses to yet greater dispiriting. Praise was to her a precious thing, in part because it made her feel as if she could go on; blame, a misery, in part because it made her feel as if all was of no use, she never could do anything right. She had not yet learned that the right is the right, come of praise or blame what may. The right will produce more right and be its own reward--in the end a reward altogether infinite, for God will meet it with what is deeper than all right, namely, perfect love. #Quote by George MacDonald
Weakness quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#136. We must learn to pray out of our weaknesses so that God can become our
strength. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Weakness quotes by Arthur Ashe
#137. I'm learning to use others' weaknesses. I don't hammer a man's soft spot constantly, because he may strengthen it. I just save it as a trump up my sleeve for moments when I really need a point. #Quote by Arthur Ashe
Weakness quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#138. Reactive people, on the other hand, focus their efforts in the Circle of Concern. They focus on the weakness of other people, the problems in the environment, and circumstances over which they have no control. Their focus results in blaming and accusing attitudes, reactive language, and increased feelings of victimization. The negative energy generated by that focus, combined with neglect in areas they could do something about, causes their Circle of Influence to shrink. #Quote by Stephen R. Covey
Weakness quotes by Haruki Murakami
#139. I guess I felt attached to my weakness. My pain and suffering too. Summer light, the smell of a breeze, the sound of cicadas - if I like these things, why should I apologize? #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Weakness quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
#140. I do not fear to die, that pang is past. God raises my weakness, and gives me courage to endure the worst. I leave a sad and bitter world; and if you remember me, and think of me as of one unjustly condemned, I am resigned to the fate awaiting me. Learn from me, dear lady, to submit in patience to the will of Heaven!"~~Justine Moritz #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Weakness quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
#141. It is far better to know our own weaknesses and failures than to point out those of others. #Quote by Jawaharlal Nehru
Weakness quotes by Anita Neilson
#142. Kindness is not a weakness - it takes strength to think of others first! #Quote by Anita Neilson
Weakness quotes by James E. Faust
#143. Unfortunately, some of our greatest tribulations are the result of our own foolishness and weakness and occur because of our own carelessness or transgression. #Quote by James E. Faust
Weakness quotes by Joe Mehl
#144. Never think tolerance and patience as a sign of fear or weakness. This is true sign of a person with strength, attitude of discipline and self-control. Wins every time. #Quote by Joe Mehl
Weakness quotes by E.K. Blair
#145. Weakness derives from the soul. Most everyone has one, which gives a woman like me leverage. Leverage to play people to my liking, and so I do. #Quote by E.K. Blair
Weakness quotes by Louis Mountbatten
#146. I suffer from the congenital weakness of believing I can do anything. #Quote by Louis Mountbatten
Weakness quotes by Prem Jagyasi
#147. We deny our weaknesses because we refuse to take responsibility for failures. #Quote by Prem Jagyasi
Weakness quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#148. This was the shocking thing; that the slime of the pit seemed to utter cries and voices; that the amorphous dust gesticulated and sinned; that what was dead, and had no shape, should usurp the offices of life. And this again, that that insurgent horror was knit to him closer than a wife, closer than an eye; lay caged in his flesh, where he heard it mutter and felt it struggle to be born; and at every hour of weakness, and in the confidence of slumber, prevailed against him, and deposed him out of life. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Weakness quotes by Manjit Sachdeva
#149. The country was passing through turbulent times. British Raj was on its last legs. The World War had sucked the juice out of the British economy. Britain neither had the resources nor the will to hold on to a country the size of India. Sensing the British weakness and lack of resources to rule, different leagues of Indians sniffed different destinies in the air following the imminent exit of the British: a long stretch of Nehru Raj, Hindu Raj extending from Kashmir to Kerala not seen since Emperor Ashoka in third-century BCE before the emperor himself renounced Hinduism and turned a non-violent Buddhist, a Muslim-majority state carved out of two shoulders of India with a necklace-like corridor running through her bosom along Grand Trunk Road, balkanisation of the country with princes ruling the roost, and total chaos.
From August 1946 onwards, chaos appeared to be the most likely destiny as it spurted in Bengal, Bihar, and United Provinces, ending in the carnage of minority communities at every place.
The predicament of British government was how to cut their losses and run without many British casualties before the inevitable chaos spread to the whole country.
The predicament of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the leader of the Muslim League, was how to achieve his dream of Muslim-majority Pakistan carved out of India before his imminent demise from tuberculosis he suffered from, about which - apart from his doctor - only a handful of his closest relations and friends #Quote by Manjit Sachdeva
Weakness quotes by Joe Morgan
#150. To obtain success, you must get the most out of your ability and to do that you must work on your weaknesses. #Quote by Joe Morgan
Weakness quotes by Thomas Robert Malthus
#151. The vices and moral weakness of man are not invincible: Man is perfectible, or in other words, susceptible of perpetual improvement. #Quote by Thomas Robert Malthus
Weakness quotes by Tommy Lasorda
#152. I'm sick and tired of people saying that taking drugs is a sickness. When you put something of your own free will in your own body knowing that it's harmful against the body, it's against the law and all it will do is lead you down the path of destruction, that is a weakness. #Quote by Tommy Lasorda
Weakness quotes by John Cassian
#153. No just man suffices unto himself for the winning of justification. The divine mercy must always hold out a hand to his footsteps as they falter and almost stumble, and this is so because the weakness of his free will may cause him to lose balance, and if he falls he may perish forever. #Quote by John Cassian
Weakness quotes by Rohit Omar
#154. A jitendriya or stoic remains composed and converts his weakness and threats into his strength and opportunities #Quote by Rohit Omar
Weakness quotes by John Dos Passos
#155. It's not the possibility of Stalinism in the U.S. that's worrying me, it's the fact that the Stalinist C.P. seems doomed to fail and to bring down with it all the humanitarian tendencies I personally believe in
all the while acting as a mould on which its obverse the fascist mentality is made
and this recent massacre is certainly a sign of Stalinism's weakness not of its strength. None of that has anything to do with Marx's work
but it certainly does influence one's attitude towards a given political party. #Quote by John Dos Passos
Weakness quotes by Mark Twain
#156. ...If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it.

"The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? #Quote by Mark Twain
Weakness quotes by Moira Young
#157. Love makes you weak. #Quote by Moira Young

Weakness quotes by Radiohead
#160. Still cries at a good film,
Still kisses with saliva,
No longer empty and frantic like a cat tied to a stick,
That's driven into frozen winter shit
(The ability to laugh at weakness),
Calm,
Fitter,
Healthier and more productive
A pig in a cage on antibiotics. #Quote by Radiohead

Weakness quotes by Grace Curley
#162. Love is not weakness, father: it is strength. Love is what taught my skin to feel and my eyes to see. Love is not a weapon: it is light. #Quote by Grace Curley
Weakness quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#163. Emily looked over at Courtney. He was still asleep.
For a long time she had thought that if you loved anyone you had to tell him everything: go to him and confess as in the dream; there could be no secrets. But now in the dark of early morning with the copper bottle cold against her fee she felt that this desire to tell all was simply an evasion of responsibility, a weakness in wanting to push on to the person you love something that is your own responsibility to solve. It would be easier for her to tell Courtney all about Abe, to come to him as he sat at this desk in the chill little workroom and confess, to hand the responsibility for her ambivalence to him, to let him settle the problem of her puny conscience for her.
But I know, she thought, lying there beside him on Madame Pedroti's lumpy bed, that if I love Courtney that is the last thing I must do. If I love Courtney he must never know. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Weakness quotes by Ruben Studdard
#164. People just take your kindness for weakness sometimes, and that's just the bottom line. #Quote by Ruben Studdard
Weakness quotes by Glenn Beck
#165. Sometimes our strengths are also our weaknesses. Sometimes to be strong you have to first be weak. You have to share your burdens; you have to lean on other people while you face your problems and yourself. #Quote by Glenn Beck

#166. He who has not the weakness of friendship has not the strength. #Quote by Joseph Joubert
Weakness quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#167. As she gazed into those cool blue eyes, something strange happened in the vicinity of her middle. She suddenly felt like a hungry woman who had just been presented with a tempting dessert. Her moment of sensory weakness embarrassed her, and she frowned. "Damn, you're pretty," Dallie said softly. "Not half as pretty as you," she snapped, determined to squash whatever strangeness was lurking in the air between them. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Weakness quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#168. The majority of us cannot see beyond a few years, just as some animals cannot see beyond a few steps. Just a little narrow circle - that is our world. We have not the patience to look beyond, and thus become immoral and wicked. This is our weakness, our powerlessness. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda

#170. I was serving good but was returning especially well, which was a weakness in my game. So not only was I serving well, but I was also breaking these other guys, and they felt the pressure. #Quote by Richard Krajicek
Weakness quotes by J.P.     Robinson
#171. We think we are so strong but it is only when others try to prey on our weaknesses that we realize how frail we truly are."

Weakness quotes by Barbara R. Duguid
#172. Jesus, thank you for remembering the truth faithfully on our behalf. You worshiped your Father daily, with unwavering faith and unshakable hope in his goodness. Cherishing the Father's unchangeable character, you submitted to his perfect wisdom and trusted him completely in all the circumstances of your life, even when it was most painful. You took refuge in him often in your times of need and never turned toward false gods. Now your obedience becomes our strong encouragement to hope in the midst of continuing weakness, and you continue to advocate our cause as our heavenly High Priest. We have no other hope, nor do we need one. #Quote by Barbara R. Duguid
Weakness quotes by Taha Rana
#173. Cutie,
You used to be my Strength,
Now you became my Weakness.
You used to be my Star,
Now you became my Darkness. #Quote by Taha Rana
Weakness quotes by Auberon Waugh
#174. In England, we have a curious institution called the Church of England. Its strength has always been in the fact that on any moral or political issue it can produce such a wide divergence of opinion that nobody
from the Pope to Mao Tse-tung
can say with any confidence that he is not an Anglican. Its weaknesses are that nobody pays much attention to it and very few people attend its functions. #Quote by Auberon Waugh
Weakness quotes by Cara McKenna
#175. It's a sign of weakness to feel stuff, in prison. To care. To admit you're lonely, or sad, or that you're aching for somebody. Writing to you was the only time I got to get that stuff out of me. I just wrote down whatever needed to come out."
"I think you may be the most romantic man I've ever met."
"Give yourself some credit. I don't write letters like that to just anybody. #Quote by Cara McKenna

Weakness quotes by Manly P. Hall

Weakness quotes by Cory Duchesne
#180. What people instinctively regard as cool is real power - consistency. Pathetic is not cool. Being locked in a tragedy, but not knowing it. That's lameness. #Quote by Cory Duchesne
Weakness quotes by Italo Calvino
#181. I ask you to come down to earth," said the Baron in a calm, rather faint voice, "and to take up the duties of your station!"
"I have no intention of obeying you, my Lord Father," said Cosimo. "I am very sorry."
They were ill at ease, both of them, bored. Each knew what the other would say. "And what about your studies? Your devotions as a Christian?" said the father. "Do you intend to grown up like an American Savage?"
Cosimo was silent. These were thoughts he had not yet put to himself and had no wish to. Then he exclaimed: "Just because I'm a few yards higher up, does it mean that good teaching can't reach me?"
This was an able reply too, though it diminished, in a way, the range of his gesture; a sign of weakness.
His father realized this and became more pressing. "Rebellion cannot be measured by yards," said he. "Even when a journey seems no distance at all, it can have no return."
Now was the moment for my brother to produce some other noble reply, perhaps a Latin maxim, but at that instant none came into his head, though he knew so many by heart. Instead he suddenly got bored with all this solemnity, and shouted: "But from the trees I can piss farther," a phrase without much meaning, but which cut the discussion short.
As though they had heard the phrase, a shout went up from the ragamuffins around Porta Capperi. The Baron of Rondo's horse shied, the Baron pulled the reins and wrapped himself more tightly in his cloak, ready to leave. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Weakness quotes by Steve Hogarth
#182. We must all guard against the human weakness of forming into tribes in order to lift our self-esteem. We can feel good about ourselves without having to find someone else to classify as inferior. #Quote by Steve Hogarth
Weakness quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#183. The mystery is how a [theory] that is vulnerable to such obvious counterexamples survived for so long. I can explain it only by a weakness of the scholarly mind that I have often observed in myself. I call it theory-induced blindness: once you have accepted a theory and used it as a tool in your thinking, it is extraordinarily difficult to notice its flaws. If you come upon an observation that does not seem to fit the model, you assume that there must be a perfectly good explanation that you are somehow missing. You give the theory the benefit of the doubt, trusting the community of experts who have accepted it. Many scholars have surely thought at one time or another of stories such as [the above examples], and casually noted that these stories did not jibe with utility theory. But they did not pursue the idea to the point of saying, "This theory is seriously wrong because it ignores the fact that utility depends on the history of one's wealth, not only on present wealth." As the psychologist Daniel Gilbert observed, disbelieving is hard work, and System 2 is easily tired. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Weakness quotes by David Deida
#184. The word "surrender" is often interpreted as giving up, as weakness, as admitting defeat. Although this is one way to use the word, we will use it in a different way. Surrendering means letting go of your resistance to the total openness of who you are. It means giving up the tension of the little vortex you believe yourself to be and realizing the deep power of the ocean you truly are. It means to open with no boundaries, emotional or physical, so you ease wide beyond any limiting sense of self you might have. #Quote by David Deida

Weakness quotes by John Quincy Adams
#187. When (an advocate) is not thoroughly acquainted with the real strength and weakness of his cause, he knows not where to choose the most impressive argument. When the mark is shrouded in obscurity, the only substitute for accuracy in the aim is in the multitude of the shafts. #Quote by John Quincy Adams
Weakness quotes by Aristotle.
#188. Equity bids us be merciful to the weakness of human nature; to think less about the laws than about the man who framed them, and less about what he said than about what he meant; not to consider the actions of the accused so much as his intentions; nor this or that detail so much as the whole story; to ask not what a man is now but what he has always or usually been. #Quote by Aristotle.
Weakness quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#189. It was called evolutionary biology. Under its sway, the sexes were separated again, men into hunters and women into gatherers. Nurture no longer formed us; nature did. Impulses of hominids dating from 20,000 B.C. were still controlling us. And so today on television and in magazines you get the current simplifications. Why can't men communicate? (Because they had to be quiet on the hunt.) Why do women communicate so well? (Because they had to call out to one another where the fruits and berries were.) Why can men never find things around the house? (Because they have a narrow field of vision, useful in tracking prey.) Why can women find things so easily? (Because in protecting the nest they were used to scanning a wide field.) Why can't women parallel-park? (Because low testosterone inhibits spatial ability.) Why won't men ask for directions? (Because asking for directions is a sign of weakness, and hunters never show weakness.) This is where we are today. Men and women, tired of being the same, want to be different again. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Weakness quotes by Ben Peek
#190. I have a real weakness for Generation One Transformers. Only Generation One. I loved them as a kid, and I will, when I have the money, search occasionally for the toys that I could not afford but deeply desired as a child. #Quote by Ben Peek
Weakness quotes by Walter Wangerin Jr.
#191. What the Ancient Liar did to Eve at the beginning of things he did to me. The Mother of All was a mighty woman. She thought to outface the Serpent. She thought to brazen it though as she were herself equal to evil. #Quote by Walter Wangerin Jr.
Weakness quotes by Dean Koontz
#192. To a predator, fear indicates weakness. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Weakness quotes by Marquis De Sade
#193. And above all, you should not think of writing as a way of earning your living. If you do, your work will smell of your poverty. It will be colored by your weakness and be as thin as your hunger. There are other trades which you can take up: make boots, not books. #Quote by Marquis De Sade
Weakness quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#194. No, I am not powerful nor do I wish to be, for it is God using my weakness that makes me potent and I would never wish to surrender that. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Weakness quotes by Frederick Lenz
#195. When you wish to subjugate a people, you have to convince them of their own inherent weakness. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Weakness quotes by Hariharan Iyer
#196. Exhibiting nervousness would amount to weakness in public perception and nobody liked a weak leader. Showing bravado was the norm among Tamil Nadu politicians when faced with court cases. Even in the face of mounting evidence against them, they would behave as if it was business-as-usual. And if the verdict went against them, their usual refrain would be "judgement had been 'bought' rather than delivered." Sesha could not stoop to their level, but still he had to put up a brave front at least till the judgement was delivered. #Quote by Hariharan Iyer
Weakness quotes by John Ehle
#197. What was his place? he wondered. Where was his world? He had sometimes stood on the riverbank and told himself: Deep down in the cold water is your world; a rock lashed to your feet is your clothing for that world. To enter it you need only to climb to the place above the rapids, where the pool is, where it is always calm, so it must be deep, and there bury yourself and leave a world that is not your own and find a garden, long fields already cleared and cribs already filled, a new place in which a weakness in a man is a matter for a word or chide, not a break through which the terrors of the world flow in. #Quote by John Ehle
Weakness quotes by Paul Farmer
#198. Haiti is always talking about decentralization and nothing has been so obvious, perhaps a weakness, as the centralized nature of Haitian society as being revealed by the earthquake. I mean, they lost all these medical training programs because they didn't have them anywhere else. #Quote by Paul Farmer
Weakness quotes by Wendy Walker
#199. It requires far more strength to experience emotion than to suppress it. #Quote by Wendy Walker
Weakness quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#200. God is too great to be glorified only through the lives of His victorious children. He is glorified by our suffering and even by our sin. His sustaining strength is glorified when we walk through the furnace of affliction. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
