“Fire is the test of gold; adversity, of strong men.”
“Gold is tried by fire, brave men by adversity”
“For gold is tried in the fire and acceptable men in the furnace of adversity.”
“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.”
“As the yellow gold is tried in fire, so the faith of friendship must be seen in adversity.”
“Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records.”
William Arthur Ward
“Life's blows cannot break a person whose spirit is warmed at the fire of enthusiasm”
Norman Vincent Peale
