Perspective: How you look at things

When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.

– Alexander Graham Bell (inventor)

When heaven is about to confer a great responsibility on any man, it will exercise his mind with suffering, subject his sinews and bones to hard work, put him to poverty, place obstacles in the paths of his deeds, so as to stimulate his mind, harden his nature, and improve wherever he is incompetent.

-Meng-tzu 盟 子

It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.

Joseph Campbell, Writer

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcomed.

Anne Dudley Bradstreet Poet
