Contending with Great Difficulties

"These are times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still calm of life, or in the repose of a pacific station, that great characters are formed. The habits of a vigorous mind are formed in contending with difficulties. Great necessities call out great virtues."

Abigail Adams; letter to John Quincy Adams (1780-01-19 )
