“You know – sometimes we’re not prepared for adversity. When it happens, sometimes we’re caught short. We don’t know exactly how to handle it when it comes up. Sometimes we don’t know, just what to do when adversity takes over. And I have advice for all of us… It sounds like what you’re suppose to say, when you have that kind of problem, it’s called…Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!” ~ Cannonball Adderley
Cannonball Adderley Quintet ~ “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy” (1966)
