I think that one's Nietzsche, but might be some old philosopher like Plato ot Homer or some greek wako like that.
Freidrich Nietzche, the German philosopher and poet, also wrote: "What does not destroy me makes me stronger."

Hahaha, I know Freddy wasn't greek, nor of the age of such types as Plato, it was my poor attempt at a joke.

That's not one of my favorites, but it does tend to ring very true for most and in most cases. Whether it be stronger of mind or body. ;-)

Here's a cool quote by John Lennon

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.

I learned at a young age that you can accomplish more with a kind word...and a gun, than with a kind word alone. Al Capone

I like this one

Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.
William Shakespeare
