Adversity In Our Lives

“Storms Make Trees Take Deeper Roots”

Dolly Parton
Wind-beaten Tree by Vincent van Gogh; 1883

In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive. 
~ Lee Iacocca

You should never view your challenges as a disadvantage. Instead, it’s important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages.
~ Michelle Obama

Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute for experience.
~ Paulo Coelho

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser. 
~John W. Gardner
