Inspirational Sayings

Evergreen: Life Lessons Learned The Hard Way

You are certain to face obstacles, hardships, and discouragement in life. But I would suggest to you that such difficulties, as an element in life, are for a purpose. I do not believe that anything, any element of your lives, is put there without a purpose. I believe that every effort that we are obliged to make to overcome obstacles gives us strength, and also a confidence in ourselves that nothing else can give us. I would ten times rather see someone having a hard struggle, so as to elevate themselves, than to see them having too much money, and having everything that they want come to them without any effort on their part.
- Booker T. Washington (From the Book Evergreen: 50 Inspirational Life Lessons)
