Wise words of resiliency from ancient and modern sages:

1. Samuel Rutherford

Whenever I find myself in the cellar of affliction, I look about for the wine.

2. Steve Jobs

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

3. Hannibal

You must find a way. Or make one.

4. Gilda Radner

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.

5. Longfellow

The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.

Takeaway points: Overcoming adversity is part of the human condition. We do it daily and throughout our lives. We just need to remember that it can be done!
