Life is a series of experience, each of which makes us bigger even though it is hard to realize this. For, the world was built to develop character and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.
Trials, temptations, disappointments - all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not only test the fibre of character but strengthen it. Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.
Adversity has the same effect on a man that severe training has on the pugilist. It reduces him to his fighting weight.
The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears.
(John Vance Cheney)
