Reflection on a Famous Quote – February 18, by Danny J. Stevens

“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

 Frank A. Clark

I was once told that life is not a resting place, but it is a testing place.  Norman Vincent Peale said that those people without issues to deal with were in the grave.  For the Christian audience life was not promised to be without issues, the promise is that God will be with you. 

The path with no obstacles has no variety, no growth.   Part of the allure of success is that on the journey we become something more than we are in the present.  The obstacles help to polish our character.
