Friendship makes prosperity brighter, while it lightens adversity by sharing its grieves and anxieties.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

In times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.
Those who have succeeded have also had the ability to overcome adversity, disappointment, and even tragedy in their lives.

In prosperity, our friends know us; in adversity, we know our friends.
