Quotes about Adversity
Adversity is the first path to truth.
Adversity draws men together and produces beauty and harmony in life's relationships, just as the cold of winter produces ice-flowers on the window-panes, which vanish with the warmth.

Adversity cause some men to break others to break records.
Canto the Fourth
Nothing so difficult as a beginning
In poesy, unless perhaps the end;
For oftentimes when Pegasus seems winning
The race, he sprains a wing, and down we tend,
Like Lucifer when hurl'd from heaven for sinning;
Our sin the same, and hard as his to mend,
Being pride, which leads the mind to soar too far,
Till our own weakness shows us what we are.
But Time, which brings all beings to their level,
And sharp Adversity, will teach at last
Man, -- and, as we would hope, -- perhaps the devil,
That neither of their intellects are vast:
While youth's hot wishes in our red veins revel,
We know not this -- the blood flows on too fast;
But as the torrent widens towards the ocean,
We ponder deeply on each past emotion.

Friendship make prosperity more shining and lessens adversity by dividing and sharing it.
However, never daunted, I will cope with adversity in my traditional manner ... sulking and nausea.
In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends.
In adversity remember to keep an even mind.
Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them.
Fire is the test of gold; adversity, of strong men.
