Italian Language/Phrase translation

Question
Hello Lauren,
I was wondering if you could tell me if "Ricordare la tua forza" is the correct translation for 'Remember your strength'. If not, I was wondering if you knew any Italian quotes that resembled anything like 'Remember your strength'. I thank you very much for taking the time to read this. Have a wonderful day.

Answer
Hi Alice,

Thank you for your question. Rather than say, 'ricordare la tua forza', I would put the verb into the imperative - 'ricorda la tua forza' as it sounds more like advice and encouragement this way.

A similar alternative could be 'non dimenticare la tua forza' - don't forget your strength.

Hope this helps,
Kind regards,
Lauren
