A Quote by Elder Anthony of Optina on god, sacred, spirit, struggle, troubles, spirituality, rewards, victory, enlightenment, and laziness

Of course it would be easier to get to paradise with a full stomach, all snuggled up in a soft feather-bed, but what is required is to carry one's cross along the way, for the Kingdom of God is not attained by enduring one or two troubles, but many!

A Quote by Dr. Seuss on troubles and difficulty

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!

Dr. Seuss (1904 - 1991)

A Quote by Kent Nerburn on big elk, misfortunes, death, troubles, tribulations, and trials

Do not grieve.  Misfortune will happen to the wisest and best of men.  Death will come, always out of season.  It is the command of the Great Spirit, and all nations and people must obey.  What is past and cannot be prevented should not be grieved for… Misfortunes do not flourish particularly in our lives - they grow everywhere.  Big Elk - Omaha Chief
