Trials are medicines which our gracious and wise Physician prescribes, because we need them; and He proportions the frequency and the weight of them to what the case requires. Let us trust in his skill, and thank him for His prescription.
      - Sir Isaac Newton

Prosperity tries the fortunate, adversity the great.
      - Pliny the Younger (Caius Caecilius Secundus)

Jesus wept once; possibly more than once. There are times when God asks nothing of His children except silence, patience, and tears.
      - Charles Seymour Robinson

A grievous burden was thy birth to me;
  Tetchy and wayward was thy infancy;
    Thy schooldays frightful, desp'rate, wile and furious;
      Thy prime of manhood daring, bold, and venturous;
        Thy age confirmed, proud, subtle, sly, and bloody,
          More mild, but yet more harmful--kind in hatred.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Duchess of York at IV, iv)

Great faith must have great trials.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

When our troubles are many we are often by grace made courageous in serving our God; we feel that we have nothing to live for in this world, and we are driven, by hope of the world to come, to exhibit zeal, self-denial, and industry.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

There are no crown-wearers in heaven who were not cross-bearers here below.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon,
        Gleanings among the Sheaves--Cross-Bearers

As sure as ever God puts His children in the furnace, He will be in the furnace with them.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon,
        Gleanings Among the Sheaves--Privileges of Trial

Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of; they just turn up some of the ill weeds on to the surface.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon,
        Gleanings among the Sheaves--The Use of Trial

Nothing is intolerable that is necessary. Now God hath bound thy trouble upon thee by His special providence, and with a design to try thee, and with purposes to reward and crown thee. These cords thou canst not break, and therefore lie thou down gently, and suffer the hand of God to do what He pleases.
      - Jeremy Taylor

Great trials seem to be a necessary preparation for great duties. It would seem that the more important the enterprise, the more severe the trial to which the agent is subjected in his preparation.
      - Edward Thomson

In the time of Jesus the mount of transfiguration was on the way to the cross. In our day the cross is on the way to the mount of transfiguration. If you would be on the mountain, you must consent to pass over the road to it.
      - Henry Clay Trumbull
