"Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant."
Hmm, this is an interesting thought. I wonder if I would've started writing again if my life hadn't taken the turn for the worse that it did. I like my style of poetry and I've written a few that I'm really proud of. Maybe if I wasn't going through what I'm going through, I never would've been inspired to write anything. Perhaps writing can be the good that comes out of all this? I guess it remains to be seen.
