Hey everyone,

I need a quote for my yearbook. Can you believe I'm a senior!? Because I was diagnosed in 10th grade and have been through so much in the past few years, I would like the quote to reflect what I've been through and how strong I am because of it. It doesn't have to discuss UC or surgery. Looking for something about overcoming obstacles, strength and perseverance. It can't be too long. A quote, a part of a song or whatever you guys can come up with.

Thanks!

Congrats on being a senior and med-free!!
 
Here are a couple of good quotes ~
 
The best way out is through.
 
Rise above the storm and you will see the sunshine.
 
Smooth seas don't make skillful sailors.
 
By perseverence, even the snail reached the ark.
 
He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything.  smilewinkgrin

I'd say..."what a long strange trip it's been". But, I think it's been quoted in every yearbook since the 70's.

flchurchlady - I really like your last quote idea...

He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything.

I am too tired to come up with one right now, but I will think about it over the weekend.

When do you have to have your final choice?

Peggy-I officially need to submit my information online by October 24, but as soon as that is submitted it is one less thing to think about.


So far I'm really loving all these quotes and it's making it harder to choose. Keep them coming!!!

Someone here on this board has a quote in their signature, can't remember who right now, that says,
"I'm not a complete idiot - parts of me are missing"

I know that isn't exactly a yearbook quote, but it makes me smile everytime I read it. I'll continue to think on this request.

hey bratcat...
Congrats on almost being done!!  You must be soo excited!  I dont know if any of these will help you but I thought they were interesting..

Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.

It is better to wear out than to rust out.

Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.

this isn't really anything to do with ostomies, but one of my fav quotes is.

"if you don't expect to much from me, you might not be let down"

I also like
"why not tip over the apple cart, the apples will rot anyway"

Peggy, that's Shaz's quote. It's a good one. I also like, "What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger."

Thanks, flchurchlady!  I just couldn't remember who's quote that was while I was responding to the message.

I like "What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger" a lot too.

I had Chinese food for dinner last night, and my fortune cookie message said:

"Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors"

(We all went through a lot with our health, but I am sure think we learned a lot from it!)




Or, "Happiness is good health and a bad memory"

My daughter is also a senior.  She had her colostomy surgery in April and another in June.  She found a t-shirt and the doctors love it.  It says......."NO COLON AND STILL ROLLIN"

Hi.

I ended up finding a quote in my searches by Christopher Reeve.

Here it is...

A hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
— Christopher Reeve

I just felt it was me. Thanks everyone for helping me decide. I really liked so many of your ideas and will always remember them in my daily life.

I've always liked  "If you don't like the way something looks, change the way you look at it".....I find it so applicable when faced with things over which I have no control yeah
