Don’t accept that having HIV or AIDS is a death sentence. Question the medical knowledge and scientific accuracy of all AIDS data you have been presented with. Find out what people living healthily with HIV/AIDS are doing with their lives. Only have in your life that which supports and celebrates your aims and purposes, and detach immediately from everything that doesn’t.’

‘For all those who have condemned us to die, the following message: LIVING IS THE BEST REVENGE!’
