I've learned in my life that yes, what didn't kill me, made me stronger. It also made me a little bit more nervous.

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

No. It's just a snappy bumper sticker.

Yes!

Life's too complicated for bumper sticker platitudes.

Specifics please!

no real specifics.........you reflect on adversities you've face and evaluate them and yourself.

Did you find it made you reach deep inside and discover abilities, courage, fortitude to persevere obstacles you didn't know you were capable of?..........or did you just crumble?

adversity more often then not is a discovery of self........................................raven

It depends on the drug you're taking.

If what doesn’t kill us is making us stronger,

We’re gonna last longer

Than that greatest wall in China

Or that rabbit with the drum


If there’s one thing that I’ve learned

While waiting for my turn,

It’s that in each life some rain falls

But you also get some sun


And we’ll make out better than okay

Hear what I say

Hey, any day

It's God's job to judge the terrorists. It's our mission to arrange the meeting. U.S. Marines

No. Many times what doesn't kill someone just beats them down and leaves them anxiety ridden and depressed.

In the case of a virus (Ebola, for instance), this is not only true, but may also help others with a transfusion of your blood.
