Christopher Reeves Inspiring Quotes

By
Home Builder with Long Island Cash Home Buyer

Some people are walking around with full use of their bodies and they're more paralyzed than I am.

What I do is based on powers we all have inside us; the ability to endure; the ability to love, to carry on, to make the best of what we have... and you don't have to be a 'Superman' to do it.

I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.

When we have hope, we discover powers within ourselves we may have never known-the power to make sacrifices, to endure, to heal, and to love. Once we choose hope, everything is possible.

To be able to feel the lightest touch really is a gift.

We all have many more abilities and internal resources than we know. My advice is that you don't need to break your neck to find out about them.

Never accept ultimatums, conventional wisdom, or absolutes. accept.

If I can laugh I can live.

 

 

Unfortunately, in 1995 Reeve suffered a spinal cord injury during an equestrian competition. Falling from his horse left him quadriplegic, but not without hope. He never stopped believing that one day he would be able to hold his family in his arms again.

    Reeves left Earth at age 52

Wow.....very powerful quotes Beth. Something to really think about when one is feeling 'bummed' or whatever about some silly thing that is nothing like what Christopher dealt with for a long time.  Wow....amazing man.

His story was tragic for him and his family.  He was truly a Superman for the way he accepted the tragedy and the strength he demonstrated while alive

I echo what Ed Silva said. Christopher Reeve survived with dignity and was an inspiration to many, but it was a sad story. It's hard to believe he's been gone close to 20 years.

Hi Beth and Richard Witt - he certainly exemplified courage.  I heard him speak just before his death.  It is amazing what he did to overcome.

Wonderful quotes from a strong hero. He actually spoke at our graduation at Ohio State back in 2004. Very powerful.

Christopher Reeve's story is certainly an inspiration in spite of the tragic outcome.  We should all live with such hope while we are on this Earth.
