John Marsden Writing Topic #95

There’s no progress without discontent**

My interpretation of this quote is that people don’t progress or grow without some sort of dissatisfaction or adversities in their lives. Without dissatisfaction or adversity, people don’t learn how to deal with their emotions, how to grieve, how to overcome obstacles nor do they learn how to appreciate happiness and good times in their lives.
