For those with lung disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), it is a constant battle on two fronts happening in the body and mind.

On the physical side, the patient finds ways to prevent symptom flare-ups. On the mental side, the patient deals with psychological challenges such as thoughts of depression, helplessness, and fear.

Each week, the Lung Institute posts motivational quotes to remind those dealing with lung disease that they are not alone. Throughout history, people have dealt with various forms of adversity and found ways to accomplish their goals, or to not allow adversity to control their lives.

Below is a collection of motivational quotes for those who need some encouragement to help them with whatever they’re going through.

Booker T. Washington

“You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you had to overcome to reach your goals.” – Booker T. Washington

Eleanor Roosevelt

“Remember no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Arthur Ashe

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” – Arthur Ashe

John Lennon

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” – John Lennon
