"Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Not necessarily [I agree].
Along the same lines: "Suffering ennobles you / makes you grow stronger".
No it damn well doesn't always. It can shrink and harden you into something bitter, mean, and stunted - like a seed fallen into toxic, or simply un-nourishing, ground. Often it causes you to visit suffering on others in turn.
