Temptations divide the world into two classes; those who fail & go down under them and those who meet them successfully & gain strength of character through overcoming them.

To the one class they are stumbling-blocks; to the other they are stepping-stones.

To the one they are hindrances; to the other they are helps.

 It is not our temptations but the way we respond to them that counts.

- H. O. Fanning (

“Temptations, when we meet them at first, are as the lion that roared upon Samson; but if we overcome them, the next time we see them we shall find a nest of honey within them.” -  John Bunyan.

Js 1:2 (MEV): “My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into diverse temptations.”

“My temptations have been my Masters in Divinity.” -  Martin Luther.
