Handicaps

I thank God for my handicaps for, through them, I have found myself, my work and my God.
Helen Keller

My mother never let me use my deafness as an excuse. We had a positive environment, where if you fail, just try again.
Heather Whitestone

The truth is, I’m sort of lucky to have this body because it forced me to find my strength and beauty within.
Aimee Mullins, amputee

When I was young, my mother taught me never to feel sorry for myself, because handicaps are really things to be used.
Stevie Wonder

Rebellion against your handicaps gets you nowhere. Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world – making the most of one’s best.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

The Negative Committee

The most handicapped person in the world is a negative thinker.
Heather Whitestone, Miss America 1994, who is deaf

He who does not hope to win has already lost.
José Olmedo

The minute you start talking about what you’re going to do if you lose, you have lost.
George Shultz

Maintain an attitude of unconditional self-worth, free from self-criticism. You can agree that it is cruel and unnecessary to tell someone else, “You are really stupid – what a klutz – you should give up – you keep making the same mistakes – you’ll never be any good!” If you would never say those things to anyone else, why not pay yourself the same courtesy?
