The word is courage: For the remainder of April, as part of Parkinson’s Awareness Month, the theme will showcase inspirational quotes. The goal is to offer you a quote that helps to reinforce your daily approach to life with Parkinson’s. Alternatively, use these quotes to bolster the resolve of your life-Coach/Care Partner. Every life-step with Parkinson’s is a balancing act that is slowly evolving, subtly changing, but it is always present. May these quotes support your daily walk in the presence of Parkinson’s.

Life is better lived with courage: The strength of your courage is not how physically strong you are; by contrast, it’s forging ahead to confront a life-circumstance, challenge or dilemma with your personal strength of conviction. You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.” Thomas Merton

Life with Parkinson’s requires courage: If you have Parkinson’s, you have courage. If you are living with Parkinson’s, every time you do something, every feat you accomplish, every breath you take, you do it with a significant amount of courage. “It takes courage to be the author of your life.” Nicholas Lore

From the Journey with Parkinson’s: Living with Parkinson’s takes courage because your enemy is within you, and you always feel its presence. Thus, your hourly-daily-effort to live-fully is a measure of your courage.” Frank C. Church

“Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine.” Roy T. Bennett
