If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. —Anne Bradstreet

The only addendum to this quote that I could possibly add is that during times of adversity, and when it feels like there is nothing left and you have no one else to rely on, nothing is more important than friends. GOOD friends.
