When Life is Difficult

When It’s Darkest, Men See the Stars.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life,
your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.
– Rabindranath Tagore

Your success and happiness lies in you.
Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you
shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
– Helen Keller

Only when life is difficult, are we challenged to become our greatest selves.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
