This week I’m sharing some quotes from the book The Choice: Embrace the Possible by Edith Eger. This is just a selection of my favourites from the book. I read this book many many years ago.
“Our painful experiences aren’t a liability—they’re a gift. They give us perspective and meaning, an opportunity to find our unique purpose and our strength.”
“We don’t know where we’re going, we don’t know what’s going to happen, but no one can take away from you what you put in your own mind.”
“Time doesn’t heal. It’s what you do with the time. Healing is possible when we choose to take responsibility, when we choose to take risks, and finally, when we choose to release the wound, to let go of the past or the grief.”
“The only place where we can exercise our freedom of choice is in the present.”
“We cannot choose to have a life free of hurt. But we can choose to be free, to escape the past, no matter what befalls us, and to embrace the possible.”
“You can live to avenge the past, or you can live to enrich the present.”
“We can’t choose to vanish the dark, but we can choose to kindle the light.”
