Alberto P. Casing
When you experience hard times, consider it pure joy.
Hard times are not meant to knock you down;
they are designed to develop your inner strength,
your faith and complete trust in the Almighty God.

Reinhold Niebuhr
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen.

Helen Keller
When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.

Bob Riley
Hard times don't create heroes. It is during the hard times when the 'hero' within us is revealed.

G.I Jane
Pain is your friend; it is your alie. Pain reminds you to finish the job and get the hell home. Pain tells you when you have been seriously wounded. And you know what the best thing about pain is? It tells you you’re not dead yet.

Isak Dinesen
Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.

Arnold Schwarzenegger
The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.

It's toughest to forgive ourselves. So it's probably best to start with other people. It's almost like peeling an onion. Layer by layer, forgiving others, you really do get to the point where you can forgive yourself.

J.K. Rowling
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

Stacey Charter
Life is all about timing - the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable - attainable. Have the patience, wait it out. It's all about timing. 

Barbara de Angelis
Difficult times always create opportunities for you to experience more love in your life.

Winston Churchill
Never, never, never, never give up.

If someone you love hurts you cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

Jewish Proverb
What soap is for the body, tears are for the soul.

Albert Smith
Tears are the safety valve of the heart when too much pressure is laid on it.

Chinese Proverb
The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.

Thich Nhat Hanh
Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.

Knute Nelson
In the midst of these hard times it is our good health and good sleep that are enjoyable.

Veronica Roth
Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.

Leroy Satchel Paige
Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.

Norman Vincent Peale
Have great hopes and dare to go all out for them. Have great dreams and dare to live them. Have tremendous expectations and believe in them.

Og Mandino
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.

Matt Lucas
Success came to us at an age where we could enjoy it. We went through a lot of hard times, so we appreciate success all the more now.

George Harrison
It’s being here now that’s important.  There’s no past and there’s no future.  Time is a very misleading thing.  All there is ever, is the now.  We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.

Friedrich Nietzsche
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

Michael Jordan
Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

Julia Hartwig
To have darkness behind me, in front of me a bright sky, flickering lights on the water and to feel it on the stony face of the southern sun.

Napoleon Hill
Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carries with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit.

Betsey Johnson
Hard times always lead to something great.

James Allen
You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

Doe Zantamata

Deepak Chopra
The best way to get rid of the pain is to feel the pain. And when you feel the pain and go beyond it, you’ll see there’s a very intense love that is wanting to awaken itself.

Randy Pausch
The brick walls are there for a reason.  The brick walls are not there to keep us out.  The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.  Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.  They’re there to stop the other people.

Dr. Seuss
I learned there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead, others come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready, you see. Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me.

Nelson Mandela
The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.
