#18. You told me once that too much good in a person's life will stunt their growth. You said pain is necessary, because in order for a person to succeed, they must first learn to conquer adversity. And that's what you do ... you deliver adversity where you see fit. #Quote by Colleen Hoover

Adversity quotes by Erin Pavlina
#20. When you are in the ether you remember that you are a part of consciousness and that you are being sent out into the world to experience, learn, and grow. You know that physical life is temporary, and that the pain and adversity you face as a physical being is but a moment in your existence. Why do people choose to enter a life that is filled with pain and torment? Because from the perspective of the ether, any pain or adversity is but a blip of discomfort in the grand scheme of things. It's like asking if you are willing to suffer a paper cut in order to gain vast wisdom and knowledge and tremendous personal growth. When we incarnate, we forget that, so yeah, it can be extremely difficult to understand why horrible things happen to you and even more disconcerting to think you chose for it to happen! This is why I feel it is so important to remember where we came from. When you remember that this life is temporary and that your goal is growth, it can make even the most horrible conditions bearable. #Quote by Erin Pavlina
Adversity quotes by Judith-Victoria Douglas
#21. Few understand that horses are never truly domesticated. Their instincts are always there and readily take over once they are free. They stay or return to us by their choice, not the compulsion forced upon them.
Once realized you must also recognize only kindness will prevail to make a partner of an animal who'd prefer only the company of his kind and the freedom of wide open spaces. Any other relationship is based on the inadequacies of the tormentor on the tormented. One will lose. It's always the horse, for even if he wins his defensive battle the mark of rogue will remain.
It's been witnessed how a mustang will give up his life if his freedom can't be regained when in the grip of adversity. There's so much for us to learn from this, if we'd only learn to listen to their message. #Quote by Judith-Victoria Douglas
Adversity quotes by Miya Yamanouchi
#22. The difference between a conventional counsellor and an empowerment counsellor is that a conventional therapist will allow you to dwell in your pit of misery for months, years and possibly even decades; whereas an empowerment counsellor will challenge you to recognise that your past pains and seemingly negative experiences are the very key to accessing your greatest self. #Quote by Miya Yamanouchi
Adversity quotes by George Gordon Byron
#23. Adversity is the first path to truth. #Quote by George Gordon Byron

Adversity quotes by Jean Hanff Korelitz

Adversity quotes by Jason Versey
#35. There are seasons in our lives when we stand emotionally vulnerable, naked, affronted, without hope and broken. What of these dark difficult times? It's in these moments of deep humility and brokenness that exposes us for who we are. Adversity is a litmus test of our spirit. Don't begrudge it. It's where God does his greatest work. When you come out on the other side, and you will, you'll receive the gift of knowing exactly who you are and what you're truly made of and that's a small price to pay… if you stop and really think about it. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Adversity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#36. It takes enough determination to overcome any adversity. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Adversity quotes by Alphonsus Liguori
#37. The more a person loves God, the more reason he has to hope in Him. This hope produces in the Saints an unutterable peace, which they preserve even in adversity, because as they love God, and know how beautiful He is to those who love Him, they place all their confidence and find all their repose in Him alone. #Quote by Alphonsus Liguori
Adversity quotes by Jason Versey
#38. Every great accomplishment has its share of struggle, adversity and pain. Great achievement cannot exist without them. To reap the rewards of success in our marriages, in the lives of our children, and in our professional careers we must be prepared to push through some pretty tough moments. But trust me... on the other side of that struggle awaits an intrinsic reward that is worth more than gold. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Adversity quotes by Arthur Bloch
#39. If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong. #Quote by Arthur Bloch
Adversity quotes by Tom Gegax
#40. Given the challenges and adversity we face in business and life today, Jon Gordon provides a clear road map to navigate the negativity and pitfalls that too often sabotage individual and team success as he shines a light on the truths that define great leaders, great teams, and great energy.

#41. I don't even know who someone is until i've seen how they handle adversity. #Quote by Shonda Rhimes
Adversity quotes by Frances J Roberts
#42. For adversities must of necessity come. They are part of the pattern of life's pilgrimage for every individual; and who can escape them? But I say unto thee, that for those who walk in Me, and for those who are encircled by the intercessory prayers of My children, I shall make of the suffering, yea, shall make of the trials a stepping stone to future blessing. #Quote by Frances J Roberts
Adversity quotes by Patty Sheehan

Adversity quotes by Louis L'Amour

Adversity quotes by Theodore Roosevelt

Adversity quotes by Max Ehrmann
#49. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. #Quote by Max Ehrmann
Adversity quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#50. The majority of people have successfully alienated themselves from change; they tediously arrange their lives into a familiar pattern, they give themselves to normalcy, they are proud if they are able to follow in auspicious footsteps set before them, they take pride in always coloring inside the lines and they feel secure if they belong to a batch of others who are like them. Now, if familiar patterns bore you, if normalcy passes before you unnoticed, if you want to create your own footsteps in the earth and leave your own handprints on the skies, if you are the one who doesn't mind the lines in the coloring book as much as others do, and perchance you do not cling to a flock for you to identify with, then you must be ready for adversity. If you are something extraordinary, you are going to always shock others and while they go about existing in their mundaneness which they call success, you're going to be flying around crazy in their skies and that scares them. People are afraid of change, afraid of being different, afraid of doing things and thinking things that aren't a part of their checkerboard game of a life. They only know the pieces and the moves in their games, and that's it. You're always going to find them in the place that you think you're going to find them in, and every time they think about you, you're going to give them a heart attack. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Adversity quotes by Margaret Clarkson
#52. On accepting adversity in our lives: Always it is initiated by an act of will on our part; we set ourselves to believe in the overruling goodness, providence, and sovereignty of God and refuse to turn aside no matter what may come, no matter how we may feel. I mistakenly thought I could not trust God unless I felt like trusting Him. Now I am learning that trusting God is first of all a matter of the will. I choose to trust in God, and my feelings eventually follow. #Quote by Margaret Clarkson
Adversity quotes by Kathryn Hulme
#53. Never forget that God tests his real friends more severely than the lukewarm ones. #Quote by Kathryn Hulme
Adversity quotes by Ronald E. Poelman
#54. If we are right with the Lord, then, as we face adversity, we can be assured that we will be blessed with faith, strength, wisdom and help from others, not only to overcome, but to learn and to grow from those experiences. #Quote by Ronald E. Poelman
Adversity quotes by T.K. Coleman
#55. Keeping it real" isn't just a matter of facing up to harsh facts. It also includes opening up to the plethora of possibilities that offer us ways of impacting the world in spite of adversity. #Quote by T.K. Coleman
Adversity quotes by Debasish Mridha
#56. Where a mediocre mind finds adversity, a great mind finds great opportunity. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Adversity quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#57. One of the things that I think makes it hard in this society for us to tell the truth is the kind of conventional relationship to adversity. Things aren't always easy and rather than being taught to have kindness to ourselves and others in the light of that we're taught something very different; that it's wrong and rejected - that's a lot of conditioning to step away from. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Adversity quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#58. But hey, what's life without a little adversity?
That had to have been the fakest attempt at optimism since my fourth grade teacher tried reasoning that we were better off without the dead kids in our class because it'd mean more turns on the playground swings for the rest of us. #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Adversity quotes by Alex Faickney Osborn
#59. Often when economic pressure is lifted, a man must pump back into himself a feeling of must. #Quote by Alex Faickney Osborn

Adversity quotes by Thomas A Kempis

Adversity quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#66. However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man's abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Adversity quotes by Ovid
#67. As the yellow gold is tried in fire, so the faith of friendship must be seen in adversity. #Quote by Ovid

Adversity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#74. Though I am faced with many adversities, my heart will not faint. The Lord is my comfort, my hope and my peace. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Adversity quotes by R.N. Prasher
#75. When I am passing through hell, I have to remind myself of the last time I happened to be on that road. How quickly it was over, without any ingenuity on my part. After all, hell is a one-way street. The only direction forward is the way out. #Quote by R.N. Prasher
Adversity quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#76. Human rights' are a fine thing, but how can we make ourselves sure that our rights do not expand at the expense of the rights of others. A society with unlimited rights is incapable of standing to adversity. If we do not wish to be ruled by a coercive authority, then each of us must rein himself in ... A stable society is achieved not by balancing opposing forces but by conscious self-limitation: by the principle that we are always duty-bound to defer to the sense of moral justice. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Adversity quotes by T.I.
#77. Adversity builds character and character takes you places money can't. #Quote by T.I.
Adversity quotes by Amy Tan
#78. I was like a bird, my wings once carried on a wind of lies. I would beat those wings to stay aloft, and when the wind suddenly died or buffeted me around, I would keep beating those strong wings and fly in my own slice of wind #Quote by Amy Tan
Adversity quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin

Adversity quotes by Steve Goodier
#84. I'm convinced that the world, more than ever, needs the music only you can make. And if it takes extra courage to keep playing in spite of your loss, many will applaud the effort. And who knows?

Adversity quotes by Charles Stanley
#94. Dealing with adversity is like preparing for surgery. By putting our faith in what the doctor has said, we believe we will be better off if we have the surgery. But that does not make it any less painful. By submitting to the hand of a surgeon, we are saying that our ultimate goal is health, even at the cost of pain. Adversity is the same way. It is a means to an end. It is God's tool for the advancement of our spiritual lives. #Quote by Charles Stanley

#95. Adversity is hidden treasure of life. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Adversity quotes by Ben Saunders
#96. If I've learned anything in nearly 12 years now of dragging heavy things around cold places, it is that true, real inspiration and growth only comes from adversity and from challenge, from stepping away from what's comfortable and familiar and stepping out into the unknown… I certainly would implore you to open the door just a little bit and take a look at what's outside. #Quote by Ben Saunders

Adversity quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#109. You are alone because you were born alone. And though you were born alone, you found a reason and the strength to shake yourself, though as helpless as you were at birth, for the whole universe to hear and know that you have not just arrived, but you are healthy, and you commended and moved things and people around you with your cry, even as an infant! And though it all seems you are alone, note that once you can breathe, you are never alone! Smile, for there is an indomitable power within you, given to you by God! Realize your God, realize your power! Awake and realize your true strength and the strong power within you! Face life and do not just challenge the challenges in life but conquer them with all boldness and fortitude. Step by step, complete the steps! It is always not all that easy, but, be strong and beat life no matter what! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

#117. Throwing dirt on a seed only increases its value. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Adversity quotes by Betty Smith
#118. Who wants to die? Everything struggles to live. Look at that tree growing up there out of that grating. It gets no sun, and water only when it rains. It's growing out of sour earth. And it's strong because its hard struggle to live is making it strong. My children will be strong that way. #Quote by Betty Smith
Adversity quotes by Henry James
#119. Adversity had not only ruined him, it had frightened him, and he was evidently going through his remnant of life on tiptoe, for fear of waking up the hostile fates. #Quote by Henry James
Adversity quotes by Kristine Lilly
#120. You face adversity all the time. I accept what lies ahead and then I do my best. You can't take things too seriously, and you can't use things as an excuse or you'll never get through. #Quote by Kristine Lilly
Adversity quotes by David Wilkerson

Adversity quotes by Franz Stampfl
#124. With the proper motivation, that is, a good reason for wanting to do it, your mind can overcome any sort of adversity. #Quote by Franz Stampfl
Adversity quotes by Kirk Cousins
#125. This is how it needs to be in life. Solomon also wrote these words in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NIV) "Two are better than one, because if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls down and has no one to help them up." God didn't intend for us to do life alone. So let me ask you, who do you turn to when life hits you hard in the mouth? Your family? Some trusted friends? A teacher or coach? Are you building relationships today that will be there for you tomorrow when adversity comes your way? Do you have humility to look to others for strength and encouragement, or are you holding to the foolish pride that says, "I need to make it alone"? #Quote by Kirk Cousins
Adversity quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#126. Remember the goodness of God in the frost of adversity. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Adversity quotes by Bruce R. McConkie
#127. All our losses and sufferings will be made up to us in the resurrection. #Quote by Bruce R. McConkie
Adversity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#128. Don't quit when you encounter an obstacle. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Adversity quotes by Virginia H. Pearce
#129. Keep it small. Keep it simple. Give it time. An exercise program such as yoga is a slow process. It is slow by design. But, in order to secure the gains and add to them, you have to keep it up. And guess what, the more you do it, the more your desire to do it grows. It is the same with building core spiritual muscles. You may have a period of intense growth - perhaps some adversity that drives you to your knees and calls forth the blessings of heaven. But to secure those gains, we must continue to invite the Holy Ghost into our lives - daily. #Quote by Virginia H. Pearce
Adversity quotes by Tom Brady
#130. Certainly I accept my role and responsibility as a public figure and a lot of it you take the good with the bad, dealing with different adversities in life, you just try to do the best you can do. #Quote by Tom Brady
Adversity quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#131. The way we react to adversity can be a major factor in how happy and successful we can be in life. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Adversity quotes by Abby Rosmarin
#132. But life is too short not to make a fool out of yourself from time to time. And sometimes you need to make an ass out of yourself, just to see what you are capable of doing next. Life isn't just about pushing your limits and seeing what you're made of in the face of adversity. Sometimes it's about getting embarrassed and feeling humiliated and seeing where you can go from there. #Quote by Abby Rosmarin
Adversity quotes by Elaine L. Jack
#134. Despite trials, worldly confusion, and caustic voices, we can trust in the Lord and go forward with happy hearts, knowing that with every challenge or problem, there's the strength to go on. Why? Because we know His promises are real, that He does know us by name and has a plan for each of us. He will help us learn what it is and give us joy in doing it. #Quote by Elaine L. Jack
Adversity quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#135. I love those who can smile in trouble... #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Adversity quotes by Joel Osteen
#136. You have to remember, you are in a controlled environment. It may seem that your circumstances are out of control, but the Creator of the universe is in complete control. He has you in the palm of His hand. Nothing can happen to you without God's permission.
In fact, God is even in control of our enemies. The Scripture talks about how God caused Pharaoh to harden his heart and not let the people go. Notice that God caused him to be difficult. Why was that? So God could show His power in extraordinary ways.
When something unexpected happens and catches you off-guard, instead of falling apart and blaming God and panicking, your attitude should be: God, I know You are still on the throne. This is not a surprise to You. I know You wouldn't have allowed this unless You had a purpose. The surprise may look like a setback, but I know the truth. It's a setup for You to show Your power in a greater way. It's a setup for You to show my unbelieving co-workers Your greatness.
God's purpose in crises is to show not just His power but to show other people what He can do. If you will view that adversity as an opportunity for God to display His greatness, God will use you as an example. He wants your neighbors to say, "How in the world did she make it? The medical report said 'impossible,' but look at her today. She's as strong and healthy as can be." Or, "He was laid off at the worst possible time, but look at him now. He has an even better job than before."
God wants to #Quote by Joel Osteen
Adversity quotes by Henrietta Dumont
#137. Moss is selected to be the emblem of maternal love, because, like that love, it glads the heart when the winter of adversity overtakes us, and when summer friends have deserted us. #Quote by Henrietta Dumont
Adversity quotes by Elizabeth Harrower
#138. So they had all had more troubles than she. Did that really make them superior? If two men were walking along the street and a brick fell on one, missing the other, did that make the injured one a better person? #Quote by Elizabeth Harrower
Adversity quotes by Criss Jami
#139. Disasters work like alarm clocks to the world, hence God allows them. They are shouting, 'Wake up! Love! Pray! #Quote by Criss Jami

#142. You can only get wine from grapes by crushing them. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Adversity quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#143. My Dear Son,
I am so very proud of you. Now, as you embark on a new journey, I'd like to share this one piece of advice. Always, always remember that - adversity is not a detour. It is part of the path.

You will encounter obstacles. You will make mistakes. Be grateful for both. Your obstacles and mistakes will be your greatest teachers. And the only way to not make mistakes in this life is to do nothing, which is the biggest mistake of all.

Your challenges, if you let them, will become your greatest allies. Mountains can crush or raise you, depending on which side of the mountain you choose to stand on. All history bears out that the great, those who have changed the world, have all suffered great challenges. And, more times than not it's precisely those challenges that, in God's time, lead to triumph.

Abhor victimhood. Denounce entitlement. Neither are gifts, rather cages to damn the soul. Everyone who has walked this earth is a victim of injustice. Everyone.

Most of all, do not be too quick to denounce your sufferings. The difficult road you are called to walk may, in fact be your only path to success. #Quote by Richard Paul Evans
Adversity quotes by Francis Quarles
#144. So use prosperity, that adversity may not abuse thee: if in the one, security admits no fears, in the other, despair will afford no hopes; he that in prosperity can foretell a danger can in adversity foresee deliverance. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Adversity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#145. In times of trouble, fear not! God will deliver you. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Adversity quotes by Napoleon Hill
#146. Finally, he lifted his head slowly, got up and walked to the door. Then he turned around, came back, laid his hand on my shoulder and said, 'My boy, you will need much courage if you remain steadfast in carrying out your purpose in life. But remember, when difficulties overtake you, the common people have common sense. Adversity will develop it. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Adversity quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#147. It is a ship that fights the storm, but its architect who gets all the praise. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Adversity quotes by Adam Houge
#148. When life presses you down remember that you weren't created for adversity. You were created for love. You were created for an eternally peaceful relationship with Jesus Christ. Remember this and walk in love toward your Savior. When life is hard don't question God, and don't blame Him. Press into Jesus and He'll comfort you. Satan would have you sit alone in brokenness but God would have you climb into His arms and be held. God Holds You Through It All No #Quote by Adam Houge
Adversity quotes by Katherine MacKenett
#149. Now every time I witness a strong person,
I want to know:
What dark did you conquer in your story?
Mountains do not rise without earthquakes. #Quote by Katherine MacKenett

#150. We had a lot of adversity, but we found a way. #Quote by Matt Holliday
Adversity quotes by John F. Kennedy
#151. Only in winter can you tell which trees are truly green. Only when the winds of adversity blow can you tell whether an individual or a country has steadfastness. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Adversity quotes by Nick Hornby
#152. There had been times when he knew, somewhere in him, that he would get used to it, whatever it was, because he had learnt that some hard things became softer after a very little while. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Adversity quotes by Victor Hugo
#153. Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Adversity quotes by Michael Moorcock
#154. She had always been beautiful in his eyes, and admirable, too. He had worshipped her, in some ways, for her courage in adversity, for her resistance to the ways of his own world. But that had been bravery under siege and now, it seemed, she single-handedly gave siege to the same society which, a few months before, had threatened to engulf and destroy her identity. There was a determination in her bearing, a lightness, an air of confidence, that proclaimed to everyone what he had always sensed in her - and he was proud that his world should see her as the woman he knew, in full command of herself and her situation. Yet there was, as well, a private knowledge, an intimate understanding between them, of the resources of character on which she drew to achieve that command. For the first time he became conscious of the depth of his love for her and, although he had always known that she had loved him, he became confident that her emotion was as strong as his own. Like her, he required no declaration; her bearing was declaration enough.
Together, they ascended. #Quote by Michael Moorcock
Adversity quotes by Wilma Mankiller
#155. My ability to survive personal crises is really a mark of the character of my people. Individually and collectively, we must react with a tenacity that allows us again and again to bounce back from adversity. #Quote by Wilma Mankiller
Adversity quotes by Helen Steiner Rice
#156. ADVERSITY CAN DISTRESS US OR BLESS US The way we use adversity is strictly our own choice, For in God's Hands adversity can make the heart rejoice - For everything God sends to us, no matter in what form, Is sent with plan and purpose for by the fierceness of a storm The atmosphere is changed and cleared and the earth is washed and clean. #Quote by Helen Steiner Rice
Adversity quotes by Angie Smith
#157. This Bible of Mine? It is the breath of God spoken into my weary bones. It is the armor I need to walk the roads He has chosen for me, and it's the confirmation of promises that withstand the test of hours and adversity.
It's a love letter, and it has my name on it.
It has your name on it. #Quote by Angie Smith
Adversity quotes by Tom Althouse

Adversity quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#159. Adversity does not make us frail; it only shows us how frail we are. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Adversity quotes by Riitta Klint
#160. Nothing like being woken up after only a few hours of sleep by workmen wanting to come into your sanctuary to check water lines to put life into perspective. Wine glasses, dishes, yesterday's ghosts, and a fucking mess everywhere. It's not all about me, is it? Life moves around out there and sometimes it wants to come in and mess with me when all I want to do is turn over and hide. I am a fragile being, sometimes it takes almost nothing to knock me off my feet and make me tired of living. Sometimes I am so tired that everything is a gargantuan effort. But I'm strong, I always hang on and hold on. My emotions run from being elated and looking up to the sky and seeing all the infinite possibilities, to looking straight into the eyes of Hades. But you know me, I always come through with all my scars, all the love I carry in my heart, and my crooked tiara. Every single diamond in that tiara reflects all the light within me and within you. Indestructible #Quote by Riitta Klint
Adversity quotes by Mr. T
#162. You're going through college, and you're going to be faced with a lot of things. You're going to face adversity, the main thing is don't quit. For many people it's easy to quit, but don't. That's what separates the winners from the losers, what separates the all-stars from the also-rans. #Quote by Mr. T
Adversity quotes by Victor Hugo

Adversity quotes by Ben Roethlisberger
#166. There will always be hard times. Use adversity to fuel your fire. In high school, I wanted to play quarterback but couldn't until I was a senior. I played wide receiver instead, and this ultimately helped me because I learned more about the game. #Quote by Ben Roethlisberger

Adversity quotes by Honore De Balzac
#181. The winter's frost must rend the burr of the nut before the fruit is seen. So adversity tempers the human heart, to discover its real worth. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Adversity quotes by William Ellery Channing
#183. No power in society, no hardship in your condition can depress you, keep you down, in knowledge, power, virtue, influence, but by your own consent. #Quote by William Ellery Channing
Adversity quotes by Douglas Coupland
#184. Mr. Gunt, Mr. Neal here is a street survivor. We at the airline are honoring the homeless this year, and it was our airline's privilege and delight to offer him the one remaining business-class seat as a token of our faith in the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. With the full authority of the EU air-system code behind me, I order you back to 67E. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Adversity quotes by T Jay Taylor
#185. When you anticipate adversity, you can then plan for adversity. You may never gain control of it, but you can keep it from controlling you. #Quote by T Jay Taylor
Adversity quotes by Mike Tomlin
#186. If our team doesn't face enough adversity early on in a season, I create it. Nothing builds a team like adversity. #Quote by Mike Tomlin
Adversity quotes by Robert Greene
#187. Understand: your mind is weaker than your emotions. But you become aware of this weakness only in moments of adversity
precisely the time when
you need strength. What best equips you to cope with tthe heat of battle is neither more knowledge nor more intellect. What makes your mind stronger, and more able to control your emotions, is internal discipline and toughness.No one can teach you this skill; you cannot learn it by reading about it. Like any discipline, it can come only through practice, experience, even a little suffering. The first step in building up presence of mind is to see the need for ii
to want it badly enough to be willing to work for it. #Quote by Robert Greene
Adversity quotes by Dwyane Wade
#188. I would have to name two people - my parents. I've seen them come through adversity and work hard to create the best life for me and my siblings. Although I don't remember them together as a couple, I remember the love they had for their children. #Quote by Dwyane Wade
Adversity quotes by Christine Evangelou

Adversity quotes by Og Mandino
#191. You never know what events are going to transpire to get you home. #Quote by Og Mandino
Adversity quotes by John Wesley
#192. Thanksgiving is inseparable from true prayer; it is almost essentially connected with it. One who always prays is ever giving praise, whether in ease or pain, both for prosperity and for the greatest adversity. He blesses God for all things, looks on them as coming from Him, and receives them for His sake- not choosing nor refusing, liking or disliking,anything, but only as it is agreeable or disagreeable to His perfect will. #Quote by John Wesley
Adversity quotes by C.S. Lewis
#193. You see, it is so hard for these creatures to persevere. The routine of adversity, the gradual decay of youthful loves and youthful hopes, the quiet despair (hardly felt as pain) of ever overcoming the chronic temptations with which we have again and again defeated them, the drabness which we create in their lives and the inarticulate resentment with which we teach them to respond to it--all this provides admirable opportunities of wearing out a soul by attrition. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Adversity quotes by Arthur Golden
#194. Adversity is like a strong wind. I don't mean just that it holds us back from places we might otherwise go. It also tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that afterward we see ourselves as we really are, and not merely as we might like to be. #Quote by Arthur Golden
Adversity quotes by Russell Baker
#195. I've had an unhappy life, thank God. #Quote by Russell Baker

Adversity quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#199. Come now, be a man!' he thought. 'We are used to adversity; let's not be crushed by a mere disappointment, or else I shall have suffered for nothing. The heart breaks when it has swelled too much in the warm breath of hope, then finds itself enclosed in cold reality. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
