The power of words to motivate is beyond question. I can still remember when my daughter whispered in my ear the first time, "I love you, my Mamaw," and the first time I heard the doctor say, "You can do it!" Then she said, "It's a girl!" My life changed—and yes, everyone's life has changed with words, especially if they are motivational words and meant to inspire.

In this article, I gathered some motivational and inspirational quotes for people with disabilities so that they will be propelled to be what they want to be. Of course, my favorite is: "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me".

Motivational and Inspirational Quotes for People with Disabilities

1. "New information and communications technologies can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, but only if such technologies are designed from the beginning so that everyone can use them.

2. "Limitations only go so far." —Robert M. Hensel

3. "Placing one foot in front of the other, I've climbed to higher lengths. Reaching beyond my own limitations, to show my inner strength. No obstacle too hard, for this warrior to overcome. I'm just a man on a mission, to prove my disability hasn't won." —Robert M. Hensel

4. "Continuous effort—not strength or intelligence—is the key to unlocking your potential." —Winston Churchill

11. "We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey." —Kenji Miyazawa

      Continuous effort not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking your potential. This gonna be my favorite thought for this year. I really agree to you, inspirational word makes people boost their ambitions and take it to the highest level they never thought they could have.

      NEVER give up! My disability denial attorney Marc Whitehead told me this at a time when I needed to hear it. Now I tell myself those 3 words everyday. As simple as it sounds, it helps!

      Hello Maita, Great hub here. It strikes the right note on disability. Edison gets to have some of the best quotes, I love the one about never giving up being our biggest flaw as people. He is right!
