would not be so pleasant; if we did
not sometimes taste of adversity,
prosperity would not be so
welcome."

This is Anne Bradstreet's Poem,
"Upon the Burning of Our House"
http://eir.library.utoronto.ca/rpo/display/poem218.html
Here is an interesting takeoff from Bradstreets poem written
about two years ago. In it, the author pays tribute to
Bradstreet  and explains the similarities of circumstance.

To My Dear And Loving Husband
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me ye women if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines
of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot
quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give
recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;        
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so
persevere,
That when we live no more we may live
ever.
