Adversity



When written in Chinese the word "crisis" is composed of two characters - one represents danger and the other represents opportunity. ~John F. Kennedy, address, 12 April 1959

Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive. ~Josephine Hart

To have become a deeper man is the privilege of those who have suffered. ~Oscar Wilde
