Life with trials hard may press me;Heaven will bring me sweeter rest.

Your perspective on life comes from the cage you were held captive in.

It takes no more time to see the good side of life than to see the bad.

You don't drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there.

Sometimes adversity is what you need to face in order to become successful

Life is a battle, and you either enter it armed, or surrender immediately.

Success advances the man's cause, adversity cleans the man's soul.

A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.

The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all

To stand alone against all adversity is the most sacred moment of existence

A poet should be so crafty with words that he is envied even for his pains.

The most difficult adversary I have ever faced happens to look just like me.

Evil originates not in the absence of guilt; but in our effort to escape it.

A soul that is happy in the things of God can overcome tremendous obstacles.

You can make heaven out of hell, or hell out of heaven. The choice is yours.
