"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.
Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul
be strengthened, ambition inspired and success achieved."
~ Helen Keller
"And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm. strengthen and establish you."
~ 1 Peter 5:10
