40 Powerful Quotes To Give You Strength When You Need It Most

These strength quotes will help you get through the day. Life has a funny way of testing us. We are constantly presented with obstacles that we must somehow find the strength to overcome. These obstacles can range from moving on from a bad relationship to getting through a financial drought, but whatever the challenge at hand might be, you have a choice to make. You can either give up before you start, quit half way through, or see it through to the end and the decision is not always an easy one. We never really know how strong we are until we are faced with hardship. We learn to let go of our fears and take steps towards our future. Sometimes those steps are harder than we could have ever imagined, but with time we learn that all we can do is take one step at a time. We become better people as a result of our struggles.

22 Frederick Douglass Quotes to Make You Fight to Stop Ignorance From Prevailing

Frederick Douglass is widely known as one of the most vocal defenders of human rights in the anti-slavery movement. Douglass’ ideological opposition to slavery began to take shape after he was taught to read and write. Education was banned for slaves, but in spite of this, his slaveholder Sophia Auld decided to teach him the alphabet when he was around the age of 12. Not long after, her husband forbade her from teaching, but that didn’t stop Douglass who continued to seek learning opportunities wherever they may arise.
