Hardship does not a gentle person make.
Adversity does not make a person kinder, it makes a person mean.
Suffering does not open you up, it closes you down.
So who are those devils who tell us all of the above make us stronger?
The wealthy among us. Our government. Our religion. Our bosses. Our masters.
