Today, I thought I’d give you ten quotes about differences that I found that on the internet I thought people interested and involved in BB Squared would appreciate:
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.
Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn’t mean he lacks vision.
It isn’t sufficient just to want – you’ve got to ask yourself what you are going to do to get the things you want.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I discovered early that the hardest thing to overcome is not a physical disability but the mental condition which it induces. The world, I found, has a way of taking a man pretty much at his own rating. If he permits his loss to make him embarrassed and apologetic, he will draw embarrassment from others. But if he gains his own respect, the respect of those around him comes easily.
Alexander de Seversky
I choose not to place “DIS”, in my ability.
Robert M. Hensel
Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you’re needed by someone.
Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
The only disability in life is a bad attitude.
It was my ability that mattered, not disability, which is a word I’m not crazy about using.
You have to train your brain.
Anyone have anymore that they would like to add?
