Over the last couple of weeks I've heaped praise on the paralympic games. Now that it's drawing to a close, I'll let some of the participants have the last word...

 "I'm just who I am and if I wasn't disabled then I wouldn't be Hannah and just not being me wouldn't be fun" - Hannah Cockcroft

"If someone asks me 'Would you like your legs back?' the answer would still always be 'No' because fifteen years later I'm probably in one of the best places I've been" - Nathan Stephens

"My parents didn't give me any scope to feel sorry for myself. They were just like 'go play with your brother, go climb a tree, go fall off your motorbike, do whatever you want. Don't come crying to us when you get scratched. You've got prosthetic legs - that's very nice.' " - Oscar Pistorius

"Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet"  - Stephen Hawking
