The Strength to Overcome Adversity

Quotes and Notes #207, June 4,

“One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.”—Albert Schweitzer—

I’m starting to notice a common thread developing in some of the articles in the quote project.

    • One gains strength by overcoming obstacles
    • Through practice, one develops the strength to overcome adversity.
    • Our levels of optimism are raised by the practice of optimism.
    • Our sense of self-confidence is enhanced through the practice of projecting self-confidence.
    • Happiness makes us smile. Smiling increases our feelings of happiness.
    • Sharing a smile will make both you and the recipient feel good.

Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
