Daily Quote

"When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure."
-Peter Marshall
Sometimes we all wish that our lives could be easy. That we could have everything served to us on a platinum platter. That no one or nothing would ever be a bother or struggle to us ever again. We all have wished for that easy life before, that's just a fact. But then we must remember that, without tons and tons (and by tons, I actually mean tons-- 2,000 pounds to a ton) of pressure, diamonds would simply be pieces of coal. And do you remember how strong diamonds are? Yeah, they're really strong. They got their strength under that pressure. Oaks are the same, but they get their strength from constantly being whipped around in strong winds that aren't even going the same way as each other. We all need that reminder. When you start wishing for the easy way out, remember that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
