    Because what doesn’t kill you can also make you terribly ill.

    It doesn’t make you stronger than you were before. It just makes you stronger than if it had killed you.

    You know it was Nietzsche said that, right? Not exactly Gospel.

    What doesn’t kill you, makes you better at sensing the weather.

    What doesn’t kill you weakens you so the next thing kills you.

    Confused about the objective here, you’re disappointed because you are still weak? Try more do’es instead of don’ts, especially at the doughnut shop.

    StrongER does not guarantee STRONG. Especially if you start out very weak.

    Dr. Nietzsche said it first, “In time of war what does not kill you makes you stronger.” After his own experiences in the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871) as an ambulance driver at the front. Some get shell shocked.

    Shakespeare among others alluded to a wound or broken bone that heals extra thick and rigid with scar tissue. Related adage: “The falling out of faithful friends renewing is of love.”
