Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Thomas A. Edison

A fighter, a real strong fighter, should always look dignified and calm, and I believe that any expression of aggression is an expression of weakness.

Try to look at your weakness and convert it into your strength. That's success.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Confession is always weakness. The grave soul keeps its own secrets, and takes its own punishment in silence.
