Inspirational Quote of the Week

“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.”

-Michael J. Fox

Michael J. Fox has always been one of my favorite actors. He didn’t become one of my favorite people until I learned of his courage in the face of Parkinson’s. I encourage anyone who is feeling in need of perspective or inspiration to read his memoir: Lucky Man. I’d loan it to you, but I’m pretty sure both of my copies are loaned out already.



PS. As always, please post some of your favorite inspirational quotes in the comment section here. You never know when the words you share will make all the difference to someone who has stumbled across the blog.



  1. “Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things” – Robert Brault.

    Yesterday we had a family dinner with Connecticut’s snow-frosted trees outside the window as a backdrop. My son, Ben, was well enough to not only attend, but participate fully in the teasing, laughter, reminiscing, and discussions. Both my nephews and my daughter have graduated college and are are starting their first real jobs. Ben may never work, and we have accepted that – but then again maybe he will. And in the meantime he has a life with meaning, and has his family’s love just the way be is. I don’t have to look back “someday” to realize that yesterday was a “big thing” – and beautiful. Just good to stop and notice.
