Crazy how you gotta wait until it's dark out to see who really with you.
Extraordinary people survive under the most terrible circumstances and they become more extraordinary because of it.
We are all in this world together, and the only test of our character that matters is how we look after the least fortunate among us. How we look after each other, not how we look after ourselves. That's all that really matters, I think.
It took cancer to realize that being self-centered is not the way to live.
The answer is to try and help others.
Life is like a confused teacher...first she gives the test and then teaches the lesson
There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.
There is a crack, a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.

There is no such thing as a model or ideal Canadian.
What could be more absurd than the concept of an "all Canadian" boy or girl? A society which emphasizes uniformity is one which creates intolerance and hate.
Never forgetting from where I came and no matter where I'm headed I promise to stay the same
Family is not an important thing. It's everything.
When you look ahead and darkness is all you see, faith and determination will pull you through.
If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers, we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats, we call her nuts.

The night before my amputation, my former basketball coach brought me a magazine with an article on an amputee who ran in the New York Marathon.

There were moments when I really just thought, I don't need anything and I don't need anyone. I just want to go away and disappear.
The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.
We walk the same path, but got on different shoes, live in the same building, but we got different views
Happiness is like a cloud, if you stare at it long enough, it evaporates.
My friends, love is better than anger.
Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world.
Bad decisions, good intentions.
An error does not become a mistake, until you refuse to correct it.
Be calm and strong and patient. Meet failure and disappointment with courage. Rise superior to the trials of life, and never give in to hopelessness or despair. In danger, in adversity, cling to your principles and ideals. Aequanimitas!
Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnosis.

We want women leaders today as never before.
Leaders who are not afraid to be called names and who are willing to go out and fight. I think women can save civilization. Women are persons.
Love doesn't mean doing extraordinary or heroic things.
It means knowing how to do ordinary things with tenderness.
Each person is sacred, no matter what his or her culture, religion, handicap, or fragility. Each person is created in God’s image; each one has a heart, a capacity to love and to be loved.
Depression is when you have lots of love, but no one's taking.
Hoes want attention, women want respect.

The smell of moist earth and lilacs hung in the air like wisps of the past and hints of the future.
My dream is for people around the world to look up and to see Canada like a little jewel sitting at the top of the continent.
How can there be peace without people understanding each other;
and how can this be if they don't know each other?
The hardest conviction to get into the mind of a beginner is that the education upon which he is engaged is not a college course, not a medical course, but a life course, for which the work of a few years under teachers is but a preparation.
A country, after all, is not something you build as the pharaohs built the pyramids, and then leave standing there to defy eternity. A country is something that is built every day out of certain basic shared values.
Happy people don't worry about what other people think of them.
