Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
~ Dr. Seuss (March 02, 1904 - September 24, 1991)
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.
~ Douglas Bader (February 10, 1910 - September 05, 1982)
The Bat that flits at close of Eve
Has left the Brain that won't believe.
The Owl that calls upon the Night
Speaks the Unbeliever's fright.
~ William Blake (November 28, 1757 - August 12, 1827)
I know, indeed, of nothing more subtle satisfying and cheering than a knowledge of the real good will and appreciation of others. Such happiness does not come with money, nor does it flow from a fine physical state. It cannot be bought. But it is the keenest joy, after all; and the toiler's truest and best reward.
~ William Dean Howells (March 01, 1837 - )
