Difficult

Laura Ingalls Wilder

The Little House books are stories of long ago. The way we live and your schools are much different now, so many changes have made living and learning easier. But the real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.

C. S. Lewis

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Hal Elrod

…when you are committed to a life purpose that is bigger than your problems, your problems become relatively insignificant and you will overcome them with ease.

Stephen Covey

Setbacks are inevitable; misery is a choice.

Brant Hansen

Anger is extraordinarily easy. It’s our default setting. Love is very difficult. Love is a miracle.

C.S. Lewis

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.

Henry Ford

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.

Helen Keller

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

G.K. Chesterton

An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered; an adventure is an inconvenience rightly considered.

Winston Churchill

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Francis Fernandez

Sadness debilitates us. It is like the heavy clay accumulating on the boots of a walker which, as well as befouling them, makes each step more difficult for him.

Mike Matheny

Character is forged not on the mountaintop but in the valley.

Orrin Woodward

Success is on the other side of your comfort zone.

Theodore Roosevelt

Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.
