Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. – A. A. Milne

When your dreams feel like they will never come true or when you’ve been told that you’re not good enough; or you’re too young or too old to have your heart’s desire, you have to stay strong and believe you are stronger than you think.

When life isn’t working out like you planned or when disappointment startles you and makes you feel weak, you have to stay strong and believe you are stronger than you think.

When the unexpected telephone call turns your life upside down or when you feel tired and broken, you have to stay strong and believe you are stronger than you think.

Your Strength

You show the world how to stay strong when you have every right to break down, but chose to keep fighting. Your strength grows in the moments when you feel like you can’t go on, but go on anyway.

This is why you are stronger than you think.

During the times when your strength feels like it’s faltering, allow these quotes to encourage you. Each quote will remind you that you are stronger than you think.
