Ten Lines From Literature For World Mental Health Day 2020

10th October 2020 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 ten beautiful quotes from literature to inspire, encourage and comfort. After all, words are 'our most inexhaustible source of magic.'
