I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quote #182...
"Difficulties come not to obstruct, but to instruct."
Excellent Mr Tracy. What do we learn when things come easy for us? Not much. When everything goes as planned, we tend to enjoy it and not examine much. We don't sit there and think.. what did we do right? We usually just basque in the success.
When things are difficult we are forced to look at things under the microscope. That's where fine tuning occurs.That's where we learn how to improve, do it right, get better. That's also where we grow and improve on a personal level.
Therefore, next time something difficult comes along, welcome it. See what lessons can be extracted to you. What is the teacher called difficulty trying to "instruct"?
That's my view...... What Say You?
