Yesterday I heard of a man who made his life good with God and education. He was in prison, but he educated himself and now he is a writer. Prison was the place where he got set free. Sometimes I think real adversity means people achieve more. People who really succeed usually seem to have a difficult past. What do you think?

Adversity can make or break a person. It all depends on how a person will look upon that adversity. Everything is a matter of choice. Life is full of choices. I am happy for that prisoner who turned his life worthwhile by doing something good.

I was almost starvin' an you fed me. I done got sick an you looked after me. I was alone in my prison cell an you came to visit me. You were there when all others ignored me. There are all kinds of prison cells where no one gives one woot about yah but your one true friend does.

That man obviously made the best of his time while he was in prison.

I think you're right. If life is easy, you don't try hard at anything.

I do believe that going through hard times can cause a person to gain success in the future.

I think having a lot of adversity sometimes urges a person to look for ways to get out of it. Education and a different mindset certainly help. Knowing Jesus especially.

I think you might be right but I don't think it happens in every case. Some seem to have an easy time of it.
