58 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.
