"Throughout all of history, human beings have been fascinated with feats of superhuman strength. We've told tales of Gods that move mountains, and men that wrestle lions with their bare hands.
But to me, the greatest stories were always the ones about the people with their backs to the wall, who had to fight tooth and nail just to make it through another day. The people with so little love and support in their lives they could barely stand, but never once let themselves fall. The people so full of anxiety they struggled to find a convincing reason to climb out of bed each morning, yet nevertheless, always found the courage to.
I never cared much for laser beams or lightening agility, invulnerability or the power of flight. To me, the most heroic acts of all tended to be the huge weights everyday people carried within themselves."

"Don't call it a fight when you know it's a war."
"I cannot stand the words
Get over it.
All of us are under such pressure to put our problems in the past tense.
Do not allow others to hurry your healing.
It is a process.
One that may take years, occasionally, even a lifetime,
and that's OK."
Get Over It by Beau Taplin
"Do what you love and love what you do."
"We are all so desperate to be understood, we forget to be understanding."
