艾米·穆林斯(Aimee Mullins)名言

For me, I never ever felt the ownership or any identity with any community of disabilities. I didn't grow up being told that I was a disabled child.

对我来说,我从来没有感觉到任何残疾人社区的所有权或身份。 我从没被告知自己是个残疾的孩子。

I've had journalists asking me, 'What do we call you - is it handicapped, are you disabled, physically challenged?' I said, 'Well hopefully you could just call me Aimee. But if you have to describe it, I'm a bilateral below-the-knee amputee.'

我有记者问我,'我们怎么称呼你-残障人士,您是否有残障,身体残障? 我说,'希望您能叫我艾米。 但是,如果您必须描述一下,我是一位双边膝盖以下截肢者。 '

I'm not an advocate for disability issues. Human issues are what interest me. You can't possibly speak for a diverse group of people. I don't know what it's like to be an arm amputee, or have even one flesh-and-bone leg, or to have cerebral palsy.

我不是残疾问题的拥护者。 人的问题使我感兴趣。 您不可能代表各种各样的人。 我不知道成为手臂截肢者,什至没有一条肉骨腿或脑瘫是什么感觉。

People presume my disability has to do with being an amputee, but that's not the case; our insecurities are our disabilities, and I struggle with those as does everyone.

人们认为我的残疾与被截肢者有关,但事实并非如此。 我们的不安全感就是我们的残疾,我和每个人一样都与他们作斗争。

Giving up is conceding that things will never get better, and that is just not true. Ups and downs are a constant in life, and I've been belted into that roller coaster a thousand times.

放弃就是让事情永远不会好起来,那是不对的。 跌宕起伏是生活中的永恒,而我已经被带入那座过山车一千次了。

I have found great power in taking my 'difference' out for a spin in a very public way. And usually, the worst, most personally embarrassing thing you imagine in your mind is often not anywhere near as bad in real life.

我发现了以公开的方式消除我的“差异”的强大力量。 通常,您在脑海中想象到的最糟糕,最个人尴尬的事情在现实生活中常常没有那么糟糕的地方。

The idea of prosthetics is a tool. Most people's cell phones are prosthetics. If you leave your cell phone at home, you feel impacted by not having it. It's an important part of your daily function and what you can do in a day.

假肢的想法是一种工具。 大多数人的手机都是假肢。 如果您将手机留在家中,那么您会因为没有手机而受到影响。 这是您日常工作的重要组成部分,也是您一天中可以做的事情。

I'm not an advocate for disability issues. Human issues are what interest me.
