        Disability Quotes

  • Disability is enunciated as a battle, a superfluous weight that one must defeat to the soundtrack of a string crescendo. Be that as it may, crippled lives are multi-faceted - overflowing with character, pride, aspiration, love, compassion, and mind. 
  • In the event that you got a disability or a handicap, that implies you're constrained to specific things. Also, I don't feel like I'm constrained to nothing. I can do anything any other individual can do. 
  • Clearly, as a result of my disability, I need help. In any case, I have consistently attempted to defeat the restrictions of my condition and lead as full a real existence as could be expected under the circumstances. I have ventured to the far corners of the planet, from the Antarctic to zero gravity. 
  • My recommendation to other crippled individuals would be, focus on things your disability doesn't forestall you progressing admirably, and don't lament the things it meddles with. Try not to be impaired in soul just as truly. 
  • The manner in which my mind forms data is very odd. That is to say, I have Attention Deficit Disorder and another learning disability I can't spell. I don't have a secondary school certificate. I'm savvy, yet you can't demonstrate it on paper. 
  • Some of the time it takes managing a disability - the injury, the relearning, the long stretches of restoration treatment - to reveal our actual capacities and how we can give them something to do for us in manners we may have never envisioned.
