What are some quotes that inspire recovery?

Around the world, all religions and groups, have their mantras, prayers, and sayings. I have been seeing quotes from others and writing quotes, and others in detox are requesting more. I know in my darkest hours that I chanted, "There is no problem so big that drugs can't make it worse." What has helped or is helping you?

God,
Grant me the serenity to
Accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and
Wisdom to know the difference. - Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous

We claim spiritual progress over spiritual perfection, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities. - Alcoholics Anonymous, How it works

Humanity is an ocean. If a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. I am a born fighter who does not know failure, it is always possible by correct conduct to lessen an evil and eventually bring good out of evil. - Mahatma Gandhi

there is always hope...
keep the faith...
keep on keepin on...
keep your eye on the prize....
all good things come to those who wait....
there is a light at the end of the tunnel...
there is nothing to fear but fear itself....

Om Mani Padme Hum (108 times or any multiple of nine)

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo ( Chant ten minutes )

There is a mantra for Karma clearing that I had remarkable experience  " Thiru Neela Kantam" 108 times and slicing limes while chanting.

I know it might sound crazy... but i turned to these in desperation and now know several other mantras. You really have to just try it and see for your self. I started out skeptical but can honestly say I have tried and tested several and they do work.
