On Adversity ∼ James Buckham

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/115566.html

Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly.  They not only test the fiber of a character, but strengthen it.  Every conquered 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.
