Adversity – or Opportunity?

Dear Friends,

A neighbor was living her busy life when her car was rear-ended and she ended up with a back injury. She was going to be laid up in bed for several weeks, and I wondered what I might do to help her.

Then I thought about the power of words to comfort and inspire, and I put together some of my favorite quotes about overcoming adversity – for my friend, and for you:

Adversity causes some men to break, others to break records.
– William A. Ward

The difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter.
– Author Unknown

We have no right to ask when sorrow comes, “Why did this happen to me?” unless we ask the same question for every moment of happiness that comes our way.
– Author Unknown

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming it.
– Helen Keller

A bend in the road is not the end of the road...unless you fail to make the turn.
– Author Unknown

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
– Henry Ford

And finally this, from Winston Churchill: If you're going through hell, keep going.
