It is an analogy, In saying "storms make oaks grow deeper roots" one is saying that the reaction of oak trees to high winds (that may blow them over) is for them to develop strong deep roots (which they do because the live and resist storm winds for 100s of years).

The analogy is that in life the (emotional) happenings that may potentially destroy us also serve to make us stronger.
