Be yourself, who else is better qualified.
Frank J. Giblin
Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
There are no shortcuts to life's greatest achievements.
Don't tell me the sky's the limit when I know there are footprints on the moon.
Don't listen to anyone who tells you that you can't do this or that. That's nonsense. Make up your mind, you'll never use crutches or a stick, then have a go at everything. Go to school, join in all the games you can. Go anywhere you want to. But never, never let them persuade you that things are too difficult or impossible.
Life is not meant to be easy, my child, but take courage - it can be delightful.
George Bernard Shaw
It's not how good you are. It's how good you want to be.
Never let the odds keep you from doing
what you know in your heart you were meant to do.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Only surround yourself with people who will lift you higher.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Use what talents you possess;
The woods would be very silent
if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke
