My TA mentioned that usually the organic molecules were the weak ones.

Well-known strong acids are often put into a list of seven different molecules called the "7 Strong Acids"
and

The well-known strong bases are usually categorized by the name "8 Strong Bases"
They are the Group 1A metal hydroxides (LiOH, NaOH, KOH, RbOH, Cs,OH)
and Heavy group 2A metal hydroxides ()
