Chan Master Sheng Yen

‘There is no wisdom without experience. Setbacks are a kind of experience or process; adversities are a kind of test or training. If, in the face of adversity, you can remain unperturbed, without resentment or hatred, and handle it calmly and wisely, treat it compassionately, then it will no longer be adversity.’ (Zen and Inner Peace)
