"When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen, there will be something solid for you to stand upon, or you will be given wings to fly."

- Patrick Overton

"Life is fragile and I now know it is also unpredictable.

- Marsha Cooper (Faces of Hope)

"Nothing missed and no regrets. Live on in peace, health and happiness. Look for meaning where you can and cherish the mystery when you can’t."

"I have come to terms with the diagnosis and don’t let it affect my self-worth. Its not any different than any other illness that can cause a chemical imbalance such as high blood pressure or diabetes. When it’s our brain, it's just a little harder to understand."

- Marilyn Hogan (Faces of Hope)

"You might feel that nobody can understand what you’re going through, and I believe you are right. Nobody else can really understand what you’re thinking or why you’re feeling a certain way. But I think its important to know that you are loved."

- Marilyn Hogan (Faces of Hope)

"There is help out there – you just need to ask for help first and truly seek and accept the help that is offered, even if you don’t really understand how you are going to get better. But have the faith that you will."

- Marilyn Hogan (Faces of Hope)
