Here are some helpful quotes by great thinkers that I'm using in my recovery. If others also have found words that help them, I'd love to read them.

Em

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
-Proust

"I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be."
-Albert Einstein

"Fall seven times, stand up eight."
-Japanese proverb

"The willow knows what the storm does not: that the power to endure harm outlives the power to inflict it."
- Blood of the Martyr

"When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."
- Franklin D. Roosevelt

"Never, never, never give up."
- Winston Churchill

"The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul."
- David O. McKay

"When one door closes, another opens. But we often look so regretfully upon the closed door that we don't see the one that has opened for us."
- Alexander Graham Bell

This last quote reminds me of what this board has done for me so far.

"If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas."
- George Bernard Shaw

Fearful, Frantic thinking takes an enormous amount of energy and drains the creativity and motivation from our lives..........

The problem with living in the past is there's no future in it.

Loc: Right here
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others"....Nelson Mandela.

And others found here.
