“I refuse (absolutely) to be limited and defined by what I can’t do, but what I can do…my very best.-
c  as inspired by m after sharing a conversation about her  “Everest” (31st December 2015)

from http://www.craigsquotes.wordpress.com

and as originally inspired  by the words of “a fallen hero” Oscar Pistorius

“You’re not disabled (limited) by your disabilities, you are able (enabled) by your abilities.”

“The biggest disability we often face (and live with) is the limitation(s) we place on ourselves, so rather think ability”

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

* “A LARGE PUZZLE where a number of those pieces are broken.”
* “A puzzle … all the pieces are there… but in the wrong order.”
(“The pieces don’t quite fit, mesh together. but only you can find the pieces, then put them, the ‘mosaic’ together as best you can” – my words)

“It’s a constant struggle for the rest of your life … you know how you used to be and you want your life back … but it won’t happen … it’s like living in thick fog.”

“It’s a bit like living in a fog…and sleep walking through life.” *
– the words of me and m
that’s a metaphor, by the way!
“Back in 1966 (or 1965) when you went to the emergency room, they took an x-ray and if you didn’t have a fractured skull, they sent you home…

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently…”

“Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine.
They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do…”

The Man In The Looking Glass

“When you get what you want in your struggle for self
and the world makes you king for a day
Then go to a mirror and look at yourself
and see what your face has to say
for it isn’t your father, or mother or wife
who judgement upon you must pass
the one who means most in your life everyday
is the face looking back from the glass
you may follow the whole world down the pathway
of life and get pats on your back as you pass
but your final reward will be heartache and tears
if you’ve cheated the man in the glass.”
