I've recently had reason to be especially grateful for whatever resilience I have. And it struck me that resilience might be what much of humanity needs most right now. So here are some of the most inspiring (to me!) quotes relating to it that I've been able to find: “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” ― Confucius “I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.”― Maya Angelou “It may sound strange, but many champions are made champions by setbacks.” ― Bob Richards “Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” ― Nelson Mandela "Resilience isn't a single skill. It's a variety of skills and coping mechanisms. To bounce back from bumps in the road as well as failures, you should focus on emphasizing the positive." ― Jean Chatzky “Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it's less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you've lost, or you can accept it and try to put together something that's good.” ― Elizabeth Edwards “Like tiny seeds with potent power to push through tough ground and become mighty trees, we hold innate reserves of unimaginable strength. We are resilient.” ― Catherine DeVrye “Persistence and resilience only come from having been given the chance to work through difficult problems.” ― Gever Tulley “Resilience is based on compassion for ourselves as well as compassion for others.” ― Sharon Salzberg “Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient.” ― Steve Maraboli “Rock bottom became the solid foundation in which I rebuilt my life.” ― J.K. Rowling “A good half of the art of living is resilience.” ― Alain de Botton “Fall seven times, stand up eight.” ― Japanese Proverb
