One of my favorite quotes is by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
I have learned this from my life experiences and I try to teach my students that we must always try to face adversity with grace and dignity, even if at times we fail. I recently watched a TED Talks video (huge fan of these) that I believe captures this beautifully. If you can spare 3 minutes, I encourage you to watch this simple but powerful message of seeing the positive in difficulty and challenge. I think anyone can relate to this. Please share as
