Prosperity tries the fortunate, adversity the great.
By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity. Another man's, I mean.
By courage I repel adversity.
(Adversa Virtute Repello)
He knows not his own strength that hath not met adversity.
Be more prompt to go to a friend in adversity than in prosperity.
Friendship make prosperity more shining and lessens adversity by dividing and sharing it.
Adversity is the touchstone of friendship.
In adversity remember to keep an even mind.
In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends.
