A crisis is an opportunity riding the dangerous wind

Seeds of faith are always within us; sometimes it takes a crisis to nourish and encourage their growth.


Without the strength to endure the crisis, one will not see the opportunity within. It is within the process of endurance that opportunity reveals itself.


TL;DR


english translation?


TL;DR=Too Long Didn't Read.

But in this case it was more "didn't understand"

depends on what side your on because sometimes it can limit you

EDIT: For example (scince im procrastinating a bit when i should be studying for my apush dbq tomorrow) the farmers post-reconstruction period were in a system called sharecropping. This was basically "legal slavery" for both blacks AND whites which made their chances for more opportunities slim. However, you could also argue that during the eco crisis it was the opportunity for the populist party to gain more popularity because they advocated inflation and wanted more money into the system so the common people would be able to use more money.

If you're familiar with Chinese news especially the Business section, you'd see that times of crisis are normally being used as a stepping stone to achieving greater success in future.

The word "crisis" is written as 危机 in the Chinese language.
If you break the words, the word 危 means dangers. While the word 机 means opportunity.
Showing that 危(danger) = 机(opportunity)

Lets take the share market as an example. The market is dropping drastically. People are selling, when there's no demand, the price drops so to attract people to take up the shares. When the economy recovers, the prices of the share might also recover meaning that the current price is higher than when you invested meaning that you've made a profit.

This example is based on a high school student's point of view and so further analysis of how the market works have not been done.

My point is,
Do you agree that times of crisis are opportunities?Why?

If this is a duplicate, kindly remove it and I apologise for not searching for a similar title properly.


This is a very valid point.

Times of crisis are times of opportunity. We in America need to step up and be Americans today. The reason we are so epic right now is our ability in the past to change crisis into opportunity, and its time to show the world that we still got it.


isn't that what the government is doing, by pouring in money to companies so that they can manage financially, or are my sources wrong?

Some companies in the automotive industry and banking today would be a disaster without government help, unfortunately. The reason the government has agreed to pay billions of dollars to GM is because GM employs millions of workers; if GM goes down then lots of people go out of a job. The banking system is a bit more complex. Over the last 10 years average Joe went and bought a house that he couldn't really afford. He can't pay the bills, he can no longer get loans, he files bankruptcy, and the bank lost all of its loan. By bailing out banks the housing market can get back on its feet.
