Quotables: Adversity

Hey everyone! If you haven’t already noticed, I’m kind of obsessed with quotes. I’m constantly writing down ones that I find and I thought that I would share some of them with you! Today I’ll be sharing my favorite quotes having to do with adversity.

  1. “You may encounter many defeats but must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it” ~ Maya Angelou
  2. “For most of the universe’s life is not all about gummy wads and tarty tarts; is a struggle against hardship, unfairness, corruption, abuse, and adversity in all its guises, where even to survive–let alone survive with dignity–is heroic. To a solider through the days in the wake of failure is the courageous act of many.” ~ Frank Beddor, The Looking Glass Wars
  3. “I think adversity magnifies behavior. Tend to be a control freak? You’ll become more controlling. Eat for comfort? You’ll eat more. And on the positive, if you tend to focus on solutions and celebrate small success, that’s what you’ll do in adversity.” ~Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean my Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun

And another from Pinterest…


Have a great day! Enjoy the warm weather if you got it!
