Is this how poles would say, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" ?

Is that how any pole would say that? In their context of language? I'm not sure how english translates to polish...

Nietszche, of Polish origins by the way, first coined this phrase, I think:

"Was mich nicht umbringt, macht mich staerker."

what doesn't kill you makes you stronger

and in Latin here:
Quod te non occidit, te certe fortiorem reddere poterit...- That which does not kill will only serve to make you stronger
(*....i like it...*)

I like that. But how do you pronounce the polish version of this saying?

you have always al least 2 options:
1). to be desperated and fail in some departments or:
2). to fight and try to deal with sth what is difficult for you
so: if you get up not beaten by problems, you can say then you became stronger
