In every difficult situation is potential value. Believe this, then begin looking for it
If we do not rise to the challenge of our unique capacity to shape our lives, to seek the kinds of growth that we find individually fulfilling, then we can have no security: we will live in a world of sham, in which our selves are determined by the will of others, in which we will be constantly buffeted and increasingly isolated by the changes round us.
It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out; it's the grain of sand in your shoe.
One must be aware that one is continually being tested in what one wishes most in order to make clear whether one's heart is on earth or in heaven.
The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains.
We only think when we are confronted with problems
What to do if you find yourself stuck in a crack in the ground underneath a giant boulder you can't move, with no hope of rescue. Consider how lucky you are that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your current circumstances seems more likely, consider how lucky you are that it won't be troubling you much longer.
The true measure of a man is not how he behaves in moments of comfort and convenience but how he stands at times of controversy and challenges.
Itís not whether you get knocked down. Itís whether you get up again
Keep on going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it
The obstacles you face are... mental barriers which can be broken by adopting a more positive approach
Adversity causes some men to break, others to break records
Make every rejection moment an opportunity for revolution
If someone says 'canít', that shows you what to do
Troubles, like babies, grow larger by nursing
For every mountain there is a miracle
In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time
I know God will not give me anything I canít handle. I just wish that He didnít trust me so much
Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above it
Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which, in prosperous circumstances, would have lain dormant
There is no education like adversity
The true way to soften oneís troubles is to solace those of others

Life is a crucible. Nothing can be had easily. Nothing is given freely. Challenge is built into the universe, it is as fundamental as gravity. Life proceeded from a single cell to a thriving and glorious ecosystem only because it was continuously pushed and challenged. The universe will throw everything and anything in our way; our choice is to face the challenge or to give in. In giving in we don’t free ourselves from challenge, we simply accept lesser and lesser challenges, and accept a less fulfilling and less meaningful life. Challenges shape us. Every challenge faced is an act of creation. A remaking of our lives as we face difficulty and move forward, enriched in the process. Even when the challenge defeats us, we grow. In braving hardship, we reveal the best of human potential, and prove to ourselves we have a life worth living.
