    Author: John Henry Newman

I never love those salamanders that are never well but when they are in the fire of contention. I will rather suffer a thousand wrongs than offer one.

Adversity is not simply a tool. It is God's most effective tool for the advancement of our spiritual lives.

Once we begin to understand this, and accept it as a spiritual fact of life, adversity becomes easier to bear.
