67 Adversity Quotes

We hope these adversity quotes motivate you to take action and to look at adversity in a different way. Adversity is not the way to failure by itself. The road that spells lack of success is one where adversity is not embraced as a prelude or ingredient to success.

As well, adversity may mean an opportunity to broaden one's character or to form techniques that channel adaptation skills. To approach adverse conditions as a necessary tool for development is to allow circumstances to sharpen and focus skills or to help clarify missing ingredients in goal setting. You may also find motivation in these adversity poems.
