Adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it.
Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
In adversity remember to keep an even mind.
It is courage, courage, courage, that raises the blood of life to crimson splendor. Live bravely and present a brave front to adversity.
A heart well prepared for adversity in bad times hopes, and in good times fears for a change in fortune.
