It's not whether you get knocked down. It's whether you get up again.
Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.
-William Ellery Channing
Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
-Joshua J. Marine

-George S. Patton
The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man be perfected without trials.
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have.

Press on. Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow as they are today.
-Robert H. Schuller
Obstacles can't stop you. Problems can't stop you. Most of all other people can't stop you. Only you can stop you.
Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper.
I would never have amounted to anything were it not for adversity. I was forced to come up the hard way.

-Barbara De Angelis
You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
The greater the difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.
Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph; a beginning, a struggle and a victory
Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
-Franklin D Roosevelt
The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.
