From one of Tony's good friends.

The Strength of a Man

The strength of a man isn't seen in the power of his arms.
It is seen in the love with which he embraces you.

The strength of a man isn't found in his thunderous voice.
It is found in the gentle words he whispers.

The strength of a man isn't in how many friends he has.
It is in how true of a friend he is.

The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It is in how respected he is at home.

The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits.
It is in how tender he touches.

The strength of a man isn't found in his wallet.
It is found in the integrity of his words.

The strength of a man isn't in the wisdom he may possess.
It is in the wisdom he disperses.

The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It is in the burdens he can understand and overcome.
