Memorable Quotes

“I could be miserable and bitter, I could hate these other women, I could hate my husband, I could spend the rest of my life telling this story about this horrific thing that had been done to me, and where I was entitled to be a victim, I could test that story for the rest of my life, or I could actually start living for me.” – Lora Cheadle

“Living for me means I am the only one that is going to advocate on my own behalf. Nobody else is ever going to come in and say, ‘Oh, you look tired. Why don’t you go take a nap? I’m going to make you a cup of tea and hand you this book. Will you sit here and read?’ That’s up to me to determine what I need and to create that space and those boundaries to get it.” – Lora Cheadle
