" We need to be polished, going through hard times, suffering times, before the greatness in us is revealed"

" If we look out into the sky at night, we will realise that the darker the sky, the brighter are the stars! Why is it that we can't see the stars in the day time? Not that they are not there. It's because there's too much sunshine! We need darkness to bring out the stars!"

" There is the greatest practical benefit in making a few failures early in life"

" Only when you have been in the deepest valley would you appreciate the magnificence of the greatest mountain"

" Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved"

" Failure often talks to us in a 'dumb language' that we do not understand. If this were not true, we would not make the same mistakes over and over again without profiting from the lessons that they might teach us. If it were not true, we would observe more closely the mistakes which other people make and profit from them"
