Family is not an important thing. It's everything.

I have no choice about whether or not I have Parkinson's. I have nothing but choices about how I react to it. In those choices, there's freedom to do a lot of things in areas that I wouldn't have otherwise found myself in.
My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.
I can't always control my body the way I want to, and I can't control when I feel good or when I don't. I can control how clear my mind is. And I can control how willing I am to step up if somebody needs me.

The more I expect, the more unhappy I am going to be. The more I accept, the more serene I am.
Discipline is just doing the same thing the right way whether anyone's watching or not.

Acceptance doesn't mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there's got to be a way through it.
