Do you know your weakest point?

“You can live a lifetime and, at the end of it, know more about other people than you know about yourself” - Beryl Markham

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.” - Mother Teresa

“A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. If a link is broken, the entire chain breaks.”

"Whenever a man falls, it is usually at the point where he thinks he is strong."

"Rudeness, yelling, anger and swearing are a weak man's imitation of strength."

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”
