Adversity quotes
Adversity
In prosperity prepare for a change; in adversity hope for one.

- James Burgh
In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time.

- Collier, Robert
Remorse sleeps during prosperity but awakes bitter consciousness during adversity.

- Rousseau, Jean Jacques
He who knows no hardships will know no hardihood. He who faces no calamity will need no courage. Mysterious though it is, the characteristics in human nature which we love best grow in a soil with a strong mixture of troubles.

- Fosdick, Harry Emerson
Anytime you suffer a setback or disappointment, put your head down and plow ahead.

- Brown, Les
There is in every woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.

- Irving, Washington
Adversity is sometimes hard upon a man; but for one man who can stand prosperity, there are a hundred that will stand adversity.

- Carlyle, Thomas
Prosperity is a great teacher; adversity is a greater. Possession pampers the mind; privation trains and strengthens it.

- Hazlitt, William
There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.

- Mandino, Og
If there be light, then there is darkness; if cold, heat; if height, depth; if solid, fluid; if hard, soft; if rough, smooth; if calm, tempest; if prosperity, adversity; if life, death.

- Pythagoras
Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.

- Ford, Henry
Stumbling is not falling.

- Proverb, Portuguese
Adversity has ever been considered the state in which a man most easily becomes acquainted with himself.

- Samuel Johnson
Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul?

- Keats, John
In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.

- Devito, Danny
Adversity is a great teacher, but this teacher makes us pay dearly for its instruction; and often the profit we derive, is not worth the price we paid.

- Rousseau, Jean Jacques
In terms of the game theory, we might say the universe is so constituted as to maximize play. The best games are not those in which all goes smoothly and steadily toward a certain conclusion, but those in which the outcome is always in doubt. Similarly, the geometry of life is designed to keep us at the point of maximum tension between certainty and uncertainty, order and chaos. Every important call is a close one. We survive and evolve by the skin of our teeth. We really wouldn't want it any other way.

- Leonard, George
Trouble is the common denominator of living. It is the great equalizer.

- Landers, Ann
God left the world unfinished for man to work his skill upon. He left the electricity still in the cloud, the oil still in the earth. How often we look upon God as our last and feeblest resource! We go to Him because we have nowhere else to go. And then we learn that the storms of life have driven us, not upon the rocks, but into the desired haven.

- Macdonald, George
As iron put into the fire loseth its rust and becometh clearly red-hot, so he that wholly turneth himself unto God puts off all slothfulness, and is transformed into a new man.

- Kempis, Thomas
