INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES AND ANECDOTES ~ Words of Wisdom ~ May 9, 2011 by Dolores Ayotte

“All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.” (Ralph Ransom)

“He who knows no hardships will know no hardihood. He who faces no calamity will need no courage. Mysterious though it is, the characteristics in human nature which we love best grow in a soil with a strong mixture of troubles. ”  (Harry Emerson Fosdick)

“The very greatest things~great thoughts, discoveries, inventions~have usually been nurtured in hardship, often pondered over in sorrow, and at length established with difficulty.” (Samuel Smiles)

    A right on time word for this season my dear. Love the photo and it’s message.

    • Thanks Desiray…I always appreciate you stopping by and leaving such positive words of enouragement and support.

  2. I am a school teacher and I try everyday to teach my students to overcome adversity and show their full potential. It’s disheartening that only a few are willing to do that. Many are already becoming lazy and selfish. We must work hard to change the mindset of our youth, so that in the future we have strong leaders and successful citizens!

    • Hi Lisa,
      Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it. I agree with you that it is important for the youth of today to strive to overcome adversity and show their full potential. I also agree that we must work very hard to draw the best from our youth. It takes a good and determined educator to instill the fine attributes needed to shape the future leaders and citizens of our world. When teachers make this decision, the students and the rest of the world will surely benefit. Thank you for being one of those teachers.
