Struggle quotes

“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.”
Napoleon Hill

“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”
Oprah Winfrey

To move and make progress with difficulty, and making strenuous effort in the face of hardship is called Struggle.
Life is full of struggle and difficulties, each one of us has to work hard to overcome these difficulties and problems of life. Darwin said that there was a continual struggle for existence in nature, in which only the fittest would survive.

Every element which exists in nature looks to complete its configuration to acquire stability. If an element have not completed its electronic configuration it cant exist in nature.

We humans are made up of these elements only and we too show similar property to acquire stability. Each of us struggles for his existence. By existence i mean your own identity, your own achievements, success, abilities. Each of us who live in this competitive world, each individual wants to make his own identity, and wants to prove himself in front of this world.

When someone have proved himself in this world then he exists in this world, and when something exists we know him by his works. Such a person who has proved himself is successful.

But this stability will not come easily. To live or exist in this word you will have to struggle and this struggling periods of your life will teach you the lessons of life. If you will learn them successfully your chances of existence will increase and sooner or later you will be able to make your own identity, and when you have acquired stability at that moment you will exist in this mighty universe.

“Behold, O monks, this is my advice to you. All component things in the world are changeable. They are not lasting. Work hard to gain your own salvation.”
