"In Part Because Of..."

"In part because of being hemmed in,
the tree in the forest would not be forced to marshal its power,
to grow towards the light.
It must truly bring forth,
all its inner strength,
to spread its branches.
If it survives and becomes grand,
it is in part because of its suffering.
Thus the times of adversity,
can be crucial to the development,
of one's inner personality...".
Deng Ming-Dao
