Nine Lines From Literature For World Mental Health Day

10th October 2018 marks World Mental Health Day. We are huge advocates of pushing for the conversation around mental health to always be open and kind. I suppose this blog post is one of the small ways in which we are able to contribute towards that.

Here are nine beautiful quotes from literature to inspire, encourage and comfort. After all, words are 'our most inexhaustible source of magic.'

"No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another." - Dickens. 

 "I'm not afraid of storms. I am learning how to sail my ship." - Louisa May Alcott.

 "The world breaks everyone. Afterwards many are strong at the broken places."   -  Ernest Hemingway.

 "Beware; I am fearless, and therefore powerful." - Mary Shelley.

"We need never be ashamed of our tears." - Dickens.

"Well now that we have seen each other, said the unicorn. If you believe in me, I'll believe in you." - Lewis Carroll.
