70 Only The Strong Survive Quotes

Only the strong survive means if you are in a situation, it is up to you to take it as a problem, challenge or you can consider it a step up in your life. Very few people give it up, most of them start blaming God but few have the capability to withstand the problem and consider it in a positive manner and come out of it.

It can be easily seen that the ones who give up are weak and have a negative state of mind and the ones who are capable are strong. This is for humans but in more of a practical manner.

When it comes to evolution, the ones who are stronger based on their physical and mental ability and strength will survive and they will dominate the others. Here, even natural selection comes into play which is unpredictable. This is exactly the meaning of strong survival.

That makes life of everyone meaningful rather than a constant struggle of survival in one form of matter to the other form of matter where survival instinct is the only moral code.” ― Salman Ahmed Shaikh
