“The key to life is accepting challenges. Once someone stops doing this, he’s dead.”
-Bette Davis, actress.
“The ultimate measure of a person is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand in times of challenge and controversy.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr., was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African American civil rights movement.
“Self-acceptance comes from meeting life’s challenges vigorously. Don’t numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life. You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.”
-J. Donald Walters, author, lecturer and head monk at SRF.
