“Trials, temptations, disappointments — all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fiber of character but strengthen it. Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before”. – James Buckharm
Have you read the book “tough times never last but tough people last” by Dr. Schuller? Take the phrase just by its face value, where those it place adversity? We all face one adversity or the other not because we were destined for it but because in a bid to keep living we make mistakes either by our words or actions. We are helped, can develop moral energy, become nobler and stronger by adversities only if we take the learnings it inscribes on our life part.
