Adversity quotes

Some people bear three kinds of trouble -- the ones they've had, the ones they have, and the ones they expect to have.

- Hale, Edward Everett

When things are bad, we take comfort in the thought that they could always get worse. And when they are, we find hope in the thought that things are so bad they have to get better.

- Forbes, Malcolm S.

Am I willing to give up what I have in order to be what I am not yet? Am I able to follow the spirit of love into the desert? It is a frightening and sacred moment. There is no return. One's life is charged forever. It is the fire that gives us our shape.

- Richards, Mary Caroline

Misfortunes leave wounds which bleed drop by drop even in sleep; thus little by little they train man by force and dispose him to wisdom in spite of himself. Man must learn to think of himself as a limited and dependent being; and only suffering teaches

- Weil, Simone

There are times in everyone's life when something constructive is born out of adversity... when things seem so bad that you've got to grab your fate by the shoulders and shake it.

God had one son on earth without sin, but never one without suffering.

- Augustine, St.

We are always on the anvil; by trials God is shaping us for higher things.

- Beecher, Henry Ward

Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it.

- Horace

March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path.

- Gibran, Kahlil

Suffering! We owe to it all that is good in us, all that gives value to life; we owe to it pity, we owe to it courage, we owe to it all the virtues.

- France, Anatole

Do not free the camel of the burden of his hump; you may be freeing him from being a camel.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.

- Proverb, Maori

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

Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity.

- Holtz, Lou

In my room as a kid... I'd play a fighter and get knocked to the floor and come back to win.

- Hoffman, Dustin

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

- James Burgh

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
