1,176.  A wretched soul, bruised with adversity

We bid be quiet when we hear it cry.

But were we burdened with like weight of pain,

As much or more we should ourselves complain.  (Life's Like That & Soul & Adversity & Pain & Complain)  William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors II i 34-37

62,469.  Sweet are the uses of adversity,

Which like the toad, ugly and venomous,

Wears yet a precious jewel in its head;

And this our life, exempt from public haunt,

Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,

Sermons in stones, and good in everything.  (Adversity & Toad)  William Shakespeare, As You Like It II I 12

 

 

62,470.  In adversity remember to keep an open mind.  Horace

62,478.  Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character give him power.  (Adversity & Power)  Abraham Lincoln 

 

 

62,479.  You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships every day.  You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.  (Adversity & Courage)  Epicurus

 

 

62,480.  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.  (Adversity & Defeat)  Malcolm X

62,484.  The good things of prosperity are to be wished; but the good things that belong to adversity are to be admired.  (Adversity & Prosperity)  Lucius Annaeus Seneca

74,618.  Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it.  (Adversity & Genius & Wealth)  Horace
