Ive had tons of bullies who would call me retarded, even on my Facebook page. Its sad and it really hurts. I want to tell people not to use the word. Dont say your friends retarded when they do something foolish. If you have a disability, keep working hard. Whatever it takes, do it, and dont be mean to people. </br>(Lauren Potter)For me, disability is a way of getting some extremity, some kind of very difficult situation, that throws an interesting light on people. </br>(Mark Haddon)We all have a natural instinct to protect children from harm. Its never fun to see a child hurt, even if its just a scraped knee. But on the other hand, children need to take on physical challenges to learn and grow, and scraped knees and other bumps and bruises teach them valuable lessons about their own limits. </br>(Darell Hammond)Labor should not be about creating monuments on hills or statues in parks. Labors monuments and statues are when a young person can find a job, when a person with disability can get access to the ordinary life that others take for granted. </br>(Bill Shorten)These days the technology can solve our problems and then some. Solutions may not only erase physical or mental deficits but leave patients better off than able-bodied folks. The person who has a disability today may have a superability tomorrow. </br>(Daniel H. Wilson)When you hear the word disabled, people immediately think about people who cant walk or talk or do everything that people take for granted. Now, I take nothing for granted. But I find the real disability is people who cant find joy in life and are bitter. </br>(Teri Garr)My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesnt prevent you doing well, and dont regret the things it interferes with. Dont be disabled in spirit as well as physically. </br>(Stephen Hawking)Employers have recognized for some time that its smart business to have a diverse workforce - one in which many views are represented and everyones talents are valued. Well, disability is part of diversity. </br>(Thomas Perez)
