How True

I'm checking out the new dLife Diabetes Timeline and came across a wonderful quote:

"Our characters are strengthened by a perpetual self-control; we have come to detest the pasty and the saccharine in thought, word and deed. We shall be plain and fine with each other. Formerly diabetics died, but now I shall begin to look for the diabetic influence in every aspect of life, in art, science, conduct, a new delicate strength, a restraint and a clearness."

--H.G. Wells, 1934

Amazing to think he got it, even then. Somehow I think this is what the Diabetes OC has become too. I wonder what Wells would have thought of all of us being 'plain and fine with each other'?

What inspiring words lift you up when diabetes gets you down?
