I'll always use the negativity as more motivation to work even harder and become even stronger.
My disability exists not because I use a wheelchair, but because the broader environment isn't accessible.
The auto industry must acknowledge that a rational transportation policy should seek a balance between individual convenience, the efficient use of limited resources, and urban-living values that protect spaciousness, natural beauty, and human-scale mobility.
Every decently-made object, from a house to a lamp post to a bridge, spoon or egg cup, is not just a piece of 'stuff' but a physical embodiment of human energy, testimony to the magical ability of our species to take raw materials and turn them into things of use, value and beauty.
Don't fight forces, use them.
R. Buckminster Fuller
Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
