I recently joined “The Psychology Network” on LinkedIn and have been enjoying the discussion among mental health professionals (since I’m not really one, but pretend to be all the time).
Especially intriguing was the discussion thread called “What are some of your favorite quotes that have motivated and inspired you?” They are quotes that they share with patients or with each other, or that they just think are cool and sound good. Here are just 15 from the 70 or so responses:
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” –Hilary Cooper
“If you can keep your wits about you while others are losing theirs and blaming you, the world will be yours.” –Rudyard Kipling
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” –Attributed to Confucius
