“The oak fought the wind and was broken, the willow bent when it must and survived.” 

Robert Jordan

True strength is in resilience, the ability to adapt and endure.

Robert Jordan, through this metaphor, illustrates the essence of resilience. The oak, symbolizing rigid strength, breaks under strong winds, whereas the willow, representing flexibility, survives by bending. This analogy teaches us that resilience isn’t about being unyielding or inflexible in the face of challenges. Rather, it’s about adapting, learning from experiences, and bouncing back. It’s a reminder that sometimes, the strength lies not in resisting change but in our capacity to adapt and continue moving forward.
