Disability Quotes

Are you suffering from a disability since birth, caused by illnesses or accidents? There is no reason to feel lonely and hopeless. There have been many several celebrities, including singers, world leaders and scientists who have contributed immensely to our society and have gained recognition, despite their disability. Of course, there are also millions of people around the world who have been struggling each day, due to their disabilities.

 Researchers have found several instances of people born with disability not regretting their physical condition. For instance, blind people who have never seen lush green hills or a waterfall would probably seldom complain about not being able to see one. On the other hand, people who become disabled due to mishaps like accidents can go through a lot of depression and even commit suicide. Disability, on many occasions, also triggers feelings of inferiority and confidence issues in certain people. Many such individuals also dislike the sympathy showered on them by the society and detest being treated differently.

However, according to a few surveys, many disabled people have been found to thrive harder for a better life, as compared to their healthier peers.
