Although the world is full of suffering,
it is also full of the overcoming of it.
– Helen Keller
Our greatest glory is not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall.
Indeed, this life is a test. It is a test of many things – of our convictions and priorities, our faith and our faithfulness,
our patience and our resilience, and in the end,
our ultimate desires.
– Sheri L. Dew
A good half of the art of living is resilience. – Alain de Botton
Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit. – Bern Williams
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed is
always to try just one more time.
– Thomas Edison
Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. – Victor Hugo
In order to succeed, people need a sense of self-efficacy, to struggle together with resilience to meet the inevitable obstacles and inequities of life.
– Albert Bandura
