“There are some things you can only learn in a storm”

"There are some things you can only learn in a storm”—that is, learn through difficulties—is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Some stuff you can’t learn on a good day, some stuff you can only learn in a storm. #sermonNotes” was posted on Twitter on December 26, 2010. “Somethings you can only learn in a storm...” was posted on Twitter on January 22, 2012.

“There are some things you can only learn in a storm. ~Joel Olsteen” was posted on Twitter on December 1, 2012. The saying is usually credited to American televangelist Joel Osteen.

The quotation is a slightly changed version of the much older saying from Willa Cather’s novel The Song of the Lark (1915):

“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.”


Wikiquote: Willa Cather
Willa Sibert Cather (7 December 1873 – 24 April 1947) is among the most eminent American authors, known for her depictions of US life in her novels.

The Song of the Lark (1915)
I keep my mind on it. That’s the whole trick, in so far as stage experience goes; keeping right there every second. If I think of anything else for a flash, I’m gone, done for. But at the same time, one can take things in — with another part of your brain, maybe. It’s different from what you get in study, more practical and conclusive. There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm. You learn the delivery of a part only before an audience.
. Thea, in Part VI, Ch. 7

Many storms can be avoided by quick and creative thinking, but some storms in life are unavoidable, and you must navigate through them. An ancient African proverb says, “Smooth seas don’t make skillful sailors.” It is helpful to remember that storms don’t last; there is always a calm that follows. In the presence of this calm, storm waters recede, giving you an opportunity for reflection and growth. Joel Osteen states, “There are some things you can only learn in a storm.”
