|"Disability is not a 'brave struggle' or 'courage in the face of adversity'... disability is an art. It's an ingenious way to live."
-- Neil Marcus (poet)
"It is you, not the astronauts, who are the true pioneers at the frontier of human being."
-- Justin Dart (advocate)
Education & Employment
"No other set of laws so entreats academia to take its own temperature, examine its traditions, and thoughtfully deliberate about which of its standards are essential and which are merely unexamined habits. Whether from the insights we achieve from integration or from self-reflection, the unconventional, nontraditional, innovative ways in which individuals with disabilities accomplish tasks place us on new paths that benefit us all."
-- Paul D. Grossman (Attorney & Law Faculty)
"We must create a culture that focuses the full force of science and free enterprise on the individualized empowerment of every person, with or without disabilities.
Justin Dart (advocate)
Rights and Responsibilities:
"As social movements mature, they begin to look beyond the 'letter of the law', which emphasizes ethics and values, and promulgate systemic changes in attitudes, behaviors and institutional structures."
-- Leslie Kanes Weisman (Architect & Author)
Access By Design:
"The intent of universal design is to simplify life for everyone by making products, communications, and the built environment more usable by more people at little or no extra cost."
-- Ron Mace (Architect & Designer)
