Brief Description: Drawing on his own experiences of coping with disability, D. Martyn Heath presents a selection of thought-provoking, one-line quotations, intended to inspire, motivate and encourage those who are facing obstacles in life, as well as to challenge our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us, and nurture positive attitudes that reach beyond the confines of physical disability and individual circumstances.
Everyone’s path in life is unique; so don’t expect these quotations to provide quick-fix solutions to life’s problems. They sow the seeds, but life is an individual journey of learning and self-discovery, for delving into the hidden riches of our inner self and drawing on the manifold hidden resources that lay undiscovered within us.
The quotations are to the point, stand alone in their own right and will speak to each individual in a personal and pertinent way, their very succinctness magnifying their impact. The overall message is clear: we only get one shot at this life, whatever our circumstances or disabilities, so let’s make the most of the time we’ve been given and meet our challenges head on.
There’s more to each of us... than our mere bodies suggest.

About the Author: D. Martyn Heath was born with a rare pectus excavatum deformity, which constricts his upper body movements and his breathing. In 2002, at the age of 26, he suffered his fourth stroke. He lives in South Ockendon where he is the editor of a small poetry magazine, The Once Orange Badge Poetry Supplement, for disabled writers.
