"If we had no winter,
the spring would not be so pleasant.
If we did not sometimes taste of adversity
prosperity would not be so welcome."
~ Anne Bradstreet

A scripture passage which comes to mind when I read this quote is the 3rd chapter of Ecclesiastes. Here's the first verse:
"For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1
