66 Difficult Times Quotes
Be encouraged by these difficult times quotes. Difficulties in your life will only last dependent on how you react to them, which, in turn, determines your ability
to cope with the difficulties you are facing. It is our hope that you will utilize the wisdom within all of these problematic thoughts and sayings to reach for ways to travel forward.
Difficult times are not infrequent throughout life. The mainstay of forward movement rather than thinking that all is forever lost is
to adopt the attitude that with action this shall pass. If you think you are immune from troubles, tribulations or problems you will be sourly disappointed.
However, through challenges comes opportunities if we have the eyes to see, the ears to hear and the perseverance of a bird to fly in all kinds of bad weather.
For those who are going through difficult times share these words with them.
