“That which does not kill you makes you stronger”

NICOLE: Yeah, my father always told me that which does not kill you, makes you stronger.

What does not kill me, makes me stronger. An aphorism of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, from his 1888 book, Twilight of the Idols. It is often quoted or alluded to with minor variants in wording, to express resilience. It can hardly be said to be universally true.
