  • "The first step toward acceptance of a chronic illness is admitting that I’m powerless to make that illness go away, or to force my life back to the way it used to be. If I deny that I’m ill, or refuse to admit and adjust to my new limitations, I eliminate possibilities from my life."

  • "Why on earth is our coalition government so opposed to the introduction of a Tobin or 'Robin Hood' tax on transactions made in the world of high finance? Not of course that Cameron, Osborne and Cable are honest enough to admit that they are. Oh no, they say, we're all in favour of such a tax at a global level. But anything less than global - across Europe, say? No, no, no - quite out of the question. So we are invited to believe that they are in favour of the tax - as long as no serious attempt is made to introduce it. "
