For those of us who have lived or are currently living with the challenge of cancer, you might find inspiration from these quotes:

When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: You haven’t. (Thomas Edison)

When it rains, look for rainbows When it’s dark, look for stars. (I Had Cancer)

It is often in the darkest skies that we see the brightest stars. (I Had Cancer)

Your illness does not define you. Your strength and courage does. (Unknown)

Many people are suffering from abuse, poverty, addiction, and other social issues. I encourage everyone to find strength, guidance, and peace with these quotes:

Love and peace of mind do protect us. They allow us to overcome the problems that life hands us. They teach us to survive… to live now… to have the courage to confront each day. Bernie Siegel

Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourself a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Helen Keller

It’s not whether you get knocked down. It’s whether you get up again. Vince Lombardi 

One of the things I love about books, is what I learn from them. There is always a lesson even if it is a mystery, paranormal, erotica, or other genre. Here are quotes from my book Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit, it’s when things seem worse that you musn’t quit. (Joe O’Keefe)

The more you praise and celebrate life, the more there is in life to celebrate. (Oprah Winfrey)

There is an answer to the suffering you see, and though it isn’t easy, it’s still as simple as you and me.” (Author Unknown)
