EDITOR’S NOTE: Hmmm… is that true? We often tend to repeat quotes and adages of the ages, often without questioning the truth of it. So for this adversity quote by James Lane Allen, we would phrase it differently for we believe that adversity both builds and reveals character. So we’re providing another couple of variations here so you can decide. Feel free to send us your favorite quote on struggle — either your own or someone else’s.

Your body has to believe: adapt or die and then it will believe.

Good Timber Poem by Douglas Malloch

This is an all time favorite poem that uses the metaphor of trees growing to depict how struggles make us stronger.

GOOD TIMBER

by Douglas Malloch

The tree that never had to fight
For sun and sky and air and light,
But stood out in the open plain
And always got its share of rain,
Never became a forest king
But lived and died a scrubby thing.

The man who never had to toil
To gain and farm his patch of soil,
Who never had to win his share
Of sun and sky and light and air,
Never became a manly man
But lived and died as he began.

Good timber does not grow with ease:
The stronger wind, the stronger trees;
The further sky, the greater length;
The more the storm, the more the strength.
By sun and cold, by rain and snow,
In trees and men good timbers grow.

Where thickest lies the forest growth,
We find the patriarchs of both.
And they hold counsel with the stars
Whose broken branches show the scars
Of many winds and much of strife.
This is the common law of life.

Douglas Malloch, poet, short stories, editor-American Lumberman 1877-1938
