Adversity teaches us the great lesson of humanity . It enables us to sympathize with the oppressed humanity . It gives us the ideal of
wiping every tear from our eye . It prepares us to literate the enslaved humanity . It makes us break the bond of orthodoxy , superstition and social tyranny .
On the hand prosperity makes us conceited and vain . It makes us look down upon the man in the street . It makes us narrow - minded and selfish .
Only those who have lived in adversity realize the position of others in adverse circumstances . Adversity brings man closer to man. It frees him from snobbery and vanity. It makes him more humane . It makes him really cultured and polite .
Adversity is a boon to the artist . It stimulates his artistic qualities . Great tragedies were produced by men who suffered from
adversity . Surdas , Milton and Homer were blind poets but they wrote immortal verses . Shakespeare is immortal because he gave us
his tragedies .
Prosperity produces comedies .
Literary critics all over the world are at one in declaring that tragedies are always on a higher level than comedies .
Adversity produces tragedies .It also sharpens a man 's intelligence and widens his sympathies . It makes a man farsighted .
Adversity takes us nearer to God . In moments of hardship man folds his hands and prays to God . In moments of prosperity
one forgets God . One forgets too the transitoriness of joys and pleasures . The narrowing lust of gold blinds our vision . It makes
shut our eyes on every thing spiritual. It makes us conscious of only material possession .
It is well said that prosperity multiplies friends and adversity tries them . In this way adversity is a touchstone to judge true
To conclude adversity has more uses than abuses .
