A Few Quotes On Dealing With Adversity, Trial and Hardship

Friday, August 13, 2010Mustafaa Abdul Muhammad

Jesus said if we have faith the size of a mustard seed we can remove mountains

"There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time." Malcolm X

“So this is the thing that you must remember, that trials, sometimes, are so terrific that they will weaken the most strongest person sometimes.” (The Most Hon. Elijah Muhammad 1964 Laborer meeting
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting  up every time we do." Confucius 
"If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience." Robert Fulghum
"Turn your wounds into wisdom." Oprah Winfrey

"It is written in the Holy Qur'an, which is the Book of Scripture for the Muslims, that Allah created man to face difficulties. God has brought us all onto the Earth to face one difficulty after another and it is the facing of these difficulties and the overcoming of these difficulties that helps us to improve our character and improve ourselves." The Hon. Louis Farrakhan

"But, how many of us turn our backs on difficulties? Whenever the difficulty comes, we turn away from it; try to find an easy road out of a difficult situation. I am talking to all of us. How many of you, when a difficult situation arises in your life, summon the strength of your being to stand resolutely and firmly in the face of that difficulty to overcome it? Or, do you turn away?

Brothers and Sisters, each time we turn away from the struggle to overcome difficulty, there then is deterioration of character and there is destruction of the Will --- and the Will that is within you is God's gift. It is His Essence that He gives to man and anything that deteriorates your Will destroys your ability to cope with the problems of life. Struggle is ordained." The Hon. Louis Farrakhan
