    My favorite "quote" -it's actually a poem, and I love it.

    This Work...

    And exhausting

    Drives me up a wall
    And opens doors I never imagined

    Lays bare a wide range of emotions
    Yet leaves me feeling numb beyond belief

    Provides tremendous satisfaction
    And leaves me feeling profoundly helpless

    Evokes genuine empathy
    And provokes a fearsome intolerance within me

    Puts me in touch with deep suffering
    And points me toward greater wholeness

    Brings me face to face with many poverties
    And enriches me encounter by encounter

    Renews my hope
    And leaves me grasping for faith

    Enables me to envision a future
    But with no ability to control it

    Breaks me apart emotionally
    And breaks me open spiritually

    Leaves me wounded
    And heals me.

    Quote from nerdtonurse?
    "When I wake up in the morning, I want alarm bells to go off in Hell and the Devil to snarl, 'Oh, crap, she's awake!'"
    I love this. I want to write it down and look at it every day to remind myself to strive to be a better person and Christian.

    Keep em coming. I woke up pretty depressed today. This thread has let loose some sweet tears, and let out some great laughs. Just what I needed in this moment.

    I used to say that my favourite quote was from Legally Blonde "exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy, happy people don't kill other people"----- BUT, only after seeing Patch Adams as a nursing student (the other 5 times it never registered) I now say my favourite quote is the same as yours ‎"You treat a disease: You win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you win. No matter the outcome."
