Weekend Wisdom: Adversity

As I was looking through my book of positive quotations, I found a few on adversity and decided to share them today.



Strong men are made by opposition, like kites that go up against the wind. 

Frank Harris

You’ll never find a better sparring partner than adversity. 

Walt Schmidt

Adversity causes some men to break, others to break records. 

William A. Ward

 Compiled and Arranged by John Cook,

Edited by  Steve Deger and Leslie Ann Gibson.

  • If anyone has lived through adversity it is you dear daughter. You have come out stronger for all you have been through. I pray daily that life gets easier for you. You struggled coming into this world and life has been a struggle for you ever since. Maybe it is that way for all of us and we only notice how certain people seem to struggle more. Blessings and love to you.
