 Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron) once said...

And these vicissitudes come best in youth; For when they happen at a riper age, People are apt to blame the Fates, forsooth, And wonder Providence is not more sage. Adversity is the first path to truth: He who hath proved war, storm, or woman's rage, Whether his winters be eighteen or eighty, Has won experience which is deem'd so weighty.

In Adversity Quotes, by Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron) , Source: Don Juan (canto XII, st. 50)
