The word is perseverance: 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 perseverance: Some days life is easy like driving down a free-flowing interstate highway. Many other days, that same life-drive is filled with potholes, speed breakers, and numerous other obstacles. Use perseverance as a “GPS-life-device” to more easily navigate your daily life drive. “You just keep pushing. You just keep pushing. I made every mistake that could be made. But I just kept pushing.” Rene Descartes

Life with Parkinson’s requires perseverance: If you have Parkinson’s, you will need perseverance. What was once routine is now a chore, what was easy is now hard, and what used to be quick now takes longer. These once accessible life-events are still accomplished with perseverance and with Parkinson’s. “Your perseverance in the presence of Parkinson’s is persistence and tenacity. Your perseverance in the presence of Parkinson’s is the effort required to do something and keep doing it till the end, even if it’s hard.” Frank C. Church

From the Journey with Parkinson’s: With an incurable, progressive neurodegenerative disorder like Parkinson’s, your health priority works best by incorporating perseverance into living with this process from minute-by-minute.” Frank C. Church

“For everything this disease has taken, something with greater value has been given–sometimes just a marker that points me in a new direction that I might not otherwise have traveled. So, sure, it may be one step forward and two steps back, but after a time with Parkinson’s, I’ve learned that what is important is making that one step count; always looking up.” Michael J. Fox
