இ When Life Hands You A Lemon..

These two inspiring people have two things in common besides having the same passion and burning desire for what they do best in their hobby which starts with the letter 'P'. One being the first women Pilot and the other a Pianist but they do it with style although they never had the chance to get involved in hands-on operations, pulling levers, pushing buttons or striking the piano keys. They are not the ordinary type of pilot but for Jessica who grips the nose wheel of an aircraft with her toes and for Liu Wei who strikes the piano keys with his amazing nimble wiggling toes.

Quotation by Jessica Cox ~ "Never let your fear to stand in your way of an opportunity"


Quotation by Liu Wei ~ "I think there are only two choices for my life; either to just die quickly or to live a wonderful life. Nobody says piano have to be played with hands". "精彩地活下去" [jīngcǎi de huó xià qu].

Cannot think of another quotation regarding hands but would quote Denis Waitley's ~ "I had the blues because I had no shoes until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet". Basically both Jessica Cox & Liu Wei are extraordinary people who are the perfect example of the adage ‘When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade'. "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt.

Brave people when faced with adversities can do impossible things. They are such a great inspiration and gives us no more 'excuses' not to do our very best. They remind me of Helen Keller.

I know that girl pilot. They inspire people. The chinese girl quote is very true.

Um, i don't know the name of the man, he also dont have hands, i also saw him i dont know if it's on TV or at youtube. He some kinda saying that " It's the matter of how you adapt of what have given to you, it's how you live of what you have and how you use it to live" something like that!.

Bananazஇ said...

stevevhan இ you are right 'adapt' is the keyword..tQ

RoseBelle said...

You have people who are normal but don't try to reach their potentials because they fear failure and then you have people who try so hard and don't give up despite their disabilities. Adversities do bring the best out of people. This is such an inspiring post.

HappySurfer said...

Whoa! Those bananas sure look inviting!

HappySurfer said...

I just met an old colleague after 2 decades and he crawls on the floor with 2 arms coz his legs are very useless. He scolded and woke me up when I was his intern, to help others with my normal limbs. Now your blog reminds me again.
