In Adversity We Know Our Friends

What better post to reblog than a Lou Ludwig post.  I've been following Lou for many years, and we continually commented on each other's posts everyday. Not only did I comment, but I shared his quotes on my Facebook page with credit to Lou.  All I had to do was mention Lou's name, and the comments flowed by folks Lou mentored.  

They would share that information within their comments.  They stated how much they respected Lou and credited Lou with their individual success stories.  I was so impressed and proud, not only to know Lou on ActiveRain but to be able to say Lou inspired me every day, and his posts continue to do that. 

Rest in Peace, Lou, and I'll be continuing to read your blog post, reblogging them for others and continuing to be inspired by all that you shared.  

 

This is POST #12 for the January contest by Lynn Friedman.

In Adversity We Know Our Friends

 “In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity

we know our friends.”

John Churton Collins 1848 – 1908, British Literary Critic

 

 

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

In adversity we know our friends

 

Success attracts many people into your life . . . . many will call themselves friends . . . . What you will find is many of them are fair weather friends.  Around in the good times . . . . and among the missing in adversity.

 

The best friends are those who will be there for you . . . . no matter what the conditions are in your life.

 

In adversity we know our friends . . . . our real friends.

It is in adversity that we either break or grow. Sometimes the best thing to happen to someone is to suffer - as out of that we learn compassion, and a skill we may not have had in the past.

Lynnea Miller adversity separates the "fake friends" from the "real friends".... best friends will always be there for you...

Hi Barbara Todaro, thank you for sharing this beautiful post by Lou Ludwig.  Unfortunately, there are just too many fair-weather friends, indeed they are fake friends.

Barbara, he was such an inspiration and like you we continually interacted on a daily basis, he was generous to a fault with his comments and posts, I still have a difficult time coming to terms with the fact that he is gone, Endre
