Adversity is the state in which man most easily becomes acquainted with himself, being especially free of admirers then.

Samuel Johnson


4 Comments to “Adversity”

  1. Good one!

  2. Love this statement. Its placement was almost perfect. But better if it had come immediately after the “homeless” letter.

  3. Exquisite.

  4. Being free of those admirers when in that state certainly enables you to get a truer image of yourself. But don’t you see them around again when you come out of your gloom? Well, with experience at least you can handle them better.
