Adversity is a test of character and a source of empowerment. I use the sword as an example. They all start as metal ingots. Plunged into fire, they are hammered into shape and cooled in water. The swords hammered out quickly look deadly, but are stiff and brittle, subject to snapping in two when put to the test. But a sword hammered and folded, hammered and folded, changes its crystalline structure with each fold until it becomes a work of art; nearly indestructible and flexible enough to absorb and deflect nearly any shock imposed upon it. That is how adversity affects character.”
