"I thank God for my handicaps, for through them I have found myself, my work and my God." Helen Keller
"If I regarded my life from the point of view of the pessimist, I should be undone. I should seek in vain for the light that does not visit my eyes and the music that does not ring in my ears. I should beg night and day and never be satisfied. I should sit apart in awful solitude, a prey to fear and despair. But since I consider it a duty to myself and to others to be happy, I escape a misery worse than any physical deprivation."
I was slightly brain damaged at birth, and I want people like me to see that they shouldn't let a disability get in the way. I want to raise awareness - I want to turn my disability into ability.
I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
Michael J. Fox
Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn't mean he lacks vision.
I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite
of overwhelming obstacles.
"It is a waste of time to be angry about my disability. One has to get on with life and I haven't done badly. People won't have time for you if you are always angry or complaining."
"It was ability that mattered, not disability, which is a word I'm not crazy about using." -
"Do not worry about your problems with mathematics, I assure you mine are far greater." - Albert Einstein ..........was he talking to me?
"I choose not to place "DIS", in my ability."
"Limitations only go so far."
