Only those are fit to live who do not fear to die; and none are fit to die who have shrunk from the joy of life and the duty of life. Both life and death are parts of the same Great Adventure.

When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love ...
If you get up in the morning and think the future is going to be better, it is a bright day. Otherwise, it's not.
I invented my life by taking for granted that everything I did not like would have an opposite, which I would like.

How long should you try? Until.
If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.
I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be.

My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn't prevent you doing well, and don't regret the things it interferes with. Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically.

Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.
All wealth is the product of labor.

Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.
