Cancer quotes by Tamsin Greig
#1. When I was 17, a neighbour I knew well died of cancer, and I became au pair to her three little girls. In circumstances like that, when you can't really help, I think it's a human response to do something beyond oneself. So I did a sponsored parachute jump for Cancer Research. It was exciting and ridiculous. #Quote by Tamsin Greig
Cancer quotes by Chris Hedges
#2. The poison that is war does not free us from the ethics of responsibility. There are times when we must take this poison - just as a person with cancer accepts chemotherapy to live. We can not succumb to despair. Force is and I suspect always will be part of the human condition. There are times when the force wielded by one immoral faction must be countered by a faction that, while never moral, is perhaps less immoral.
We in the industrialized world bear responsibility for the world's genocides because we had the power to intervene and did not. We stood by and watched the slaughter in Chechnya, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Rwanda where a million people died. The blood for the victims of Srebrenica- a designated UN safe area in Bosnia- is on our hands. The generation before mine watched, with much the same passivity, the genocides of Germany, Poland, Hungary, Greece, and the Ukraine. These slaughters were, as in, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's book Chronical of a Death Foretold, often announced in advance #Quote by Chris Hedges
Cancer quotes by Jenny Downham
#3. I wish it was possible to smear cancer cells onto his arse. #Quote by Jenny Downham
Cancer quotes by Tony Parsons
#4. Sometimes the fog in his eyes would clear, that fog caused by the pain and the killers of pain, and when it cleared, I saw regret and fear in those eyes swimming with tears and I was convinced that this was it, this was the end, this was surely the end. #Quote by Tony Parsons
Cancer quotes by Anonymous
#5. Romance has killed more people than cancer. #Quote by Anonymous
Cancer quotes by Octavia E. Butler
#6. My relative examined you, observed a few of your normal body cells, compared them with what it had learned from other humans most like you, and said that you had not only a cancer, but a talent for cancer. #Quote by Octavia E. Butler
Cancer quotes by Bill Vaughan
#7. A cancer is not only a physical disease, it is a state of mind. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Cancer quotes by Jim Valvano
#8. Now I'm fighting cancer, everybody knows that. People ask me all the time about how you go through your life and how's your day, and nothing is changed for me. #Quote by Jim Valvano
Cancer quotes by Mr. T
#9. My mother told me, 'Son, nobody else but God knows.' And that's what I'm about - reaching out to the people, crying with them, giving them hope. Visiting the hospital, visiting the kids with cancer, visiting the adults, and stuff like that. That's what I do. #Quote by Mr. T
Cancer quotes by Philip K. Dick
#10. You know what the doctor said to me to cheer me up?" Fat said. "There are worse diseases than cancer."
"Did he show you slides?"
We both laughed. When you are nearly crazy with grief, you laugh at what you can. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Cancer quotes by April Winchell
#11. Like every aspect of cancer I've weathered thus far, today's experience was not at all demoralizing, expensive or humiliating. No, it was just plain fun. #Quote by April Winchell
Cancer quotes by Frazer Hines
#12. I would've loved to have children and I'm really good with kids, but I just didn't want to commit to anything when I had cancer. I didn't want to plan for the future. #Quote by Frazer Hines
Cancer quotes by Richard Peto
#13. Researchers linked smoking to cancer in the 1950s. Doctors believed them in the 1960s, but it was not until journalists believed the doctors in the 1970s that the public took notice. #Quote by Richard Peto
Cancer quotes by Ike Skelton
#14. Better treatment and detection methods have also improved the survival rate for people with cancer, and for the first time in history, this year the absolute number of cancer deaths in the U.S. has decreased. #Quote by Ike Skelton
Cancer quotes by Gary Weiss
#15. One problem with the focus on speculation is that it tends to promote the growth of the great intellectual cancer of our times: conspiracy theories. #Quote by Gary Weiss
Cancer quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#16. There is no hope unmingled with fear, and no fear unmingled with hope. #Quote by Baruch Spinoza
Cancer quotes by Helen Bynum
#17. Experience with tubercular patients would then help to train a new generation of specialist chest surgeons. In the second half of the 20th century, as the number of tuberculosis patients continued to decline and facilities were freed up, they were able to transfer their skills to other serious conditions within the thoracic cavity such as lung cancer, but that lay in the future. #Quote by Helen Bynum
Cancer quotes by John Green
#18. Just deleting vandalism on the Chuck Norris page," Radar said. "For instance, while I do think that Chuck Norris specializes in the roundhouse kick, I don't think it's accurate to say, 'Chuck Norris's tears can cure cancer, but unfortunately he has never cried. #Quote by John Green
Cancer quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#19. He had carte blanche to eat whatever he wanted. No amount of broccoli and vitamin D kills ten lung tumors and I know not how many brain tumors. Have the tiramisu. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
Cancer quotes by Jane Brody
#20. In 1966 the ACS formulated a State Model Cancer Act which was instrumental in the enactment of anti-quackery laws now enforced in 9 states ... In California (it is a) felony ... The use of unproven methods is also a criminal offense in Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. #Quote by Jane Brody
Cancer quotes by Hayley Mills
#21. It doesn't make sense that there is only one way of dealing with cancer. #Quote by Hayley Mills
Cancer quotes by Denis Johnson
#22. I wandered over across the hall where they were showing a short movie about vasectomies. Much later I told her that I'd actually gotten a vasectomy a long time ago, and somebody else must have gotten her pregnant. I also told her once that I had inoperable cancer and would soon be passed away and gone, eternally. But nothing I could think up, no matter how dramatic or horrible, ever made her repent or love me the way she had at first, before she really knew me. #Quote by Denis Johnson
Cancer quotes by V.K. McAllister
#23. The all-encompassing cure for cancer, heartbreak, irrationality, drug addiction, and every other ailment that plagues humanity?

Fire. #Quote by V.K. McAllister
Cancer quotes by Jim Jefferies
#24. I think only things that are personal to us offend us. It's always bizarre when people who would normally laugh at an AIDS joke won't laugh at a cancer joke, but far more people know somebody who's died from cancer. #Quote by Jim Jefferies
Cancer quotes by Danielle Esplin
#25. It's as if everyone got cancer the day I was diagnosed, except I'm their tumor. #Quote by Danielle Esplin
Cancer quotes by Gail Konop Baker
#26. I want to be brave. I want to be big. I want to be gracious and cool. I want to be the Audrey Hepburn of cancer. #Quote by Gail Konop Baker
Cancer quotes by Erma Bombeck
#27. The words of young Ted Kennedy, Jr., who lost his leg to cancer. "People are taught we should look perfect," he said. "I wondered who would ever go out with a kid with one leg. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Cancer quotes by Scott Abel
#28. If you work and do pure research in this industry as long as I have – and you actually pay attention and do your homework, then this naked and raw truth stands out -> The supplement world of cancer-fighters, CAD-preventers, health-promoters, magic-water – AND/OR - muscle-builders, fat-burners and weight-loss agents – all of them – already have an over-crowded mass grave-yard of previous magic bullets that would supposedly make your life and/or body better – Yes, so promising and heavily promoted "this" era – but so dead and gone the next – leaving in their wake a trail of mass-consumer confusion – but also leaving their actual intention -> a new generation of passive consumers – those who can't differentiate the sizzle from the steak. Or as W.C. Fields put it so long ago – "There's a sucker born every minute." -> There isn't a supplement on the planet that marks the difference between 'health or ill-health' – or between 'fit or fat.' - or between 'results and stagnation. #Quote by Scott Abel
Cancer quotes by Steve Maraboli
#29. A sense of entitlement is a cancerous thought process that is void of gratitude and can be deadly to our relationships. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Cancer quotes by Bill Gates
#30. There are more people dying of malaria than any specific cancer. #Quote by Bill Gates
Cancer quotes by Tanya Masse
#31. Laughter IS the BEST medicine! It's FREE! You can overdose on it! It helps you embrace the insanities of life! It reduces stress, heals your body and relieves pain! It fights disease and cancer and strengthens the immune system! It eases your mind, it protects your heart and soothes your soul! #Quote by Tanya Masse
Cancer quotes by John Gofman
#32. My estimate is that about 94,000 cancer fatalities for the future are being induced with each year of medical diagnostic X-rays (in US). #Quote by John Gofman
Cancer quotes by Kate Bowler
#33. A lot of Christians like to remind me that heaven is my true home, which makes me want to ask them if they would like to go home first. #Quote by Kate Bowler
Cancer quotes by Amelia Gray
#34. Remain Healthy All Day: Drink a spoonful of oil every morning. Reach up with your arms and extend your body to its full height. Use a warm towel to dry the cat. Consider a philosophical idea larger than your area of expertise. Avoid getting cancer. Chalk up bad decisions to outside influences. Don't take your father too seriously. Play a game where you close your eyes very tightly, and when you open your eyes, you have amnesia and you must draw the details of your life from your surroundings. Give up smoking, drinking, and poetic verse. Remind yourself how important you are to your friends or at least your animals. Wax the floor in socks. Enter into a healthy, monogamous relationship. Consider briefly the idea of a soulmate. Light an entire box of matches and throw it into the sink. Hold a metal rod to the heavens and beg for whatever comes next. #Quote by Amelia Gray
Cancer quotes by Bryant McGill
#35. There is nothing worse than fear. Fear is worse than cancer, fear is worse than torture, fear is worse than betrayal and fear is even worse than death. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Cancer quotes by Simon Wood
#36. Shame was one of those things that had to be excised like a cancer, but it was a hard thing to remove when it was wrapped around your heart. #Quote by Simon Wood
Cancer quotes by Jenna Morasca
#37. Why are cancer patients so hard to buy for? This question always puzzles me. When people are healthy, things are so simple, including gift buying. A jaunt to the local mall or a day in front of the TV watching QVC can be just enough for all the loved ones on your list. #Quote by Jenna Morasca
Cancer quotes by Neil Shubin
#38. In a perfectly designed world - one with no history - we would not have to suffer everything from hemorrhoids to cancer. #Quote by Neil Shubin
Cancer quotes by K.J. McPike
#39. See, this is why I hate Google. You come across one site, match one symptom, and all of a sudden you're dying of carbon monoxide poisoning or cancer of the big toe. #Quote by K.J. McPike
Cancer quotes by Anita Moorjani
#40. Dying to be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing. #Quote by Anita Moorjani
Cancer quotes by Michael Lam
#41. The failure to accept cancer as a systemic disease is one of the greatest failures in modern medicine. #Quote by Michael Lam
Cancer quotes by Ally Condie
#42. All of the things that were shown in early studies to be good for longevity - happy marriages, healthy bodies - are ours to have. We live long,
good lives. We die on our eightieth birthdays, surrounded by our families, before dementia sets in. Cancer, heart disease, and most debilitating
illnesses are almost entirely eradicated. This is as close to perfect as any society has ever managed to get. #Quote by Ally Condie
Cancer quotes by Barry Lynes
#43. It is important to emphasize again and again and again that finding a cure is not the problem The cures for many cancers, if not most cancers, exist. But they are not being offered to the patient who has cancer ... Being legally permitted to use an alternative cancer therapy is the problem #Quote by Barry Lynes
Cancer quotes by Malala Yousafzai
#44. I might have been calm, but my dear father was near tears. 'Are you all right, jani?' he said. 'Aba,' I said, trying to reassure him. 'Everybody knows they will die someday. No one can stop death. It doesn't matter if it comes from a Talib or from cancer. #Quote by Malala Yousafzai
Cancer quotes by Paul Davies
#45. You've got to get away from the idea cancer is a disease to be cured. It's not a disease really. The cancer cell is your own body, your own cells, just misbehaving and going a bit wrong, and you don't have to cure cancer. You don't have to get rid of all those cells. Most people have cancer cells swirling around inside them all the time and mostly they don't do any harm, so what we want to do is prevent the cancer from gaining control. We just want to keep it in check for long enough that people die of something else. #Quote by Paul Davies
Cancer quotes by Jeff Corwin
#46. Many of the medicines we use today, to fight everything from AIDS to cancer, originate as a toxin in an amphibian skin. When we lose these animals, we lose resources. We lose keystone species in the environments where they live. #Quote by Jeff Corwin
Cancer quotes by Henry Miller
#47. Boris has just given me a summary of his views. He is a weather prophet. The weather will continue bad, he says. There will be more calamities, more death, more despair. Not the slightest indication of a change anywhere. The cancer of time is eating us away. Our heroes have killed themselves, or are killing themselves. The hero, then, is not Time, but Timelessness. We must get in step, a lock step, toward the prison of death. There is no escape. The weather will not change. #Quote by Henry Miller
Cancer quotes by Eve Ensler
#48. Look, you do everything in stages, right? I don't think everything happens at once. There are so many layers we are constantly chipping away at, down and down and down, closer and closer to what would be the body. I think what happened with cancer, was that I woke up out of nine hours of surgery and I was body. I was just body. #Quote by Eve Ensler
Cancer quotes by Michelle Hodkin
#49. Do not find peace. Find passion. Find something you want to die for more than something you want to live for. If it is your children, then fight not just for your own but for orphans who have no one else. If it is for medicine, then do not just seek out a cure for cancer but search for a cure for AIDS as well. Fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Speak for them. Scream for them. Live and die for them. You life will not always be a happy one, but it will have meaning. #Quote by Michelle Hodkin
Cancer quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#50. Apart from Christ, we cannot stand against our own hearts. The verses above presume that we will struggle with sin, but they warn us not to declare any sin a "sanctifiable" character quality, even if through it we may learn valuable lessons about life. Learning lessons is not God's first priority for his children. Transformed character is. I learned here that God may, in his providence, bring good from my past, but the good that comes is not because of the sin, but in spite of it. It is very tempting to see "good" in those things that tempt us to sin or lead us to sin because then we don't seem nearly as corrupt as Original Sin renders us. According to God, sinful temptations are inclinations to do something or become something that cost Jesus his life for my sake. We are not to try to ransom it on our own terms. Suggesting that our sin is good or produces good is tantamount to calling cancer good health. #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Cancer quotes by Olivia Newton-John
#51. Fight each round take it on the chin. And never never never ever give in. #Quote by Olivia Newton-John
Cancer quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#52. I'm not resigned, but I'm realistic too. The statistics in my case are very poor. Not many people come through esophageal cancer and live to talk about it, or not for long. And the other wager is, the part of the wager, it's a certainty you'll have a terrible time and you may wish you were dying because it's an awful process. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Cancer quotes by Vikrmn
#53. Curing cancer affects good cells too in the short run but makes a life flourish in the long term. Curing corruption affects good people too in the short run but makes a nation flourish in the long term. #Quote by Vikrmn
Cancer quotes by Dan Brown
#54. One does not need to have cancer to analyze its symptoms. #Quote by Dan Brown
Cancer quotes by Bill Bryson
#55. Science has been quite embattled. It's the most important thing there is. An arts graduate is not going to fix global warming. They may do other valuable things, but they are not going to fix the planet or cure cancer or get rid of malaria. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Cancer quotes by James Houston Turner
#56. I will not be defined by the marks left on me by the world, but by the mark I leave on the world (referring to the facial scars he still carries from his successful 1991 battle against cancer, which caused him to be turned down for a customer service job because he was "too ugly"). #Quote by James Houston Turner
Cancer quotes by Juan Williams
#57. While Planned Parenthood provides abortions at some of their clinics, it also provides healthcare services for poor women, including checkups, mammograms, cervical cancer screenings and contraceptives. #Quote by Juan Williams
Cancer quotes by Charlie Kaufman
#58. My leg hurts, I wonder if it's cancer? There's a bump. I'm starting to sweat. Stop sweating. I've got to stop sweating.
Can she see it dripping down my forehead? She looked at my hair line. She thinks I'm bald. #Quote by Charlie Kaufman
Cancer quotes by Sanchita Pandey
#59. Believe in your prayers. Believe in the power of your faith and blessings of your near and dear ones. Their love serves as a balm, soothes your heart and heals your body. #Quote by Sanchita Pandey
Cancer quotes by Ann Voskamp
#60. The act of sacrificing thank offerings to God - even for the bread and cup of cost, for cancer and crucifixion - this prepares the way for God to show us His fullest salvation from bitter, angry, resentful lives and from all sin that #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Cancer quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#61. Let us say that you might have become a telepathic cancer, a malignant mentality which in its inevitable dissolution would have poisoned other and greater minds. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Cancer quotes by Michael Shermer
#62. Mind is just a word we use to describe neural activity in the brain. No brain, no mind. We know this because if a part of the brain is destroyed through stroke or cancer or injury or surgery, whatever that part of the brain was doing is now gone. If the damage occurs in early childhood when the brain is especially plastic, or in adulthood in certain parts of the brain that are conducive to rewiring, then that brain function - that "mind" part of the brain - may be rewired into another neural network in the brain. But this process just further reinforces the fact that without neural connections in the brain there is no mind. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Cancer quotes by Vicki Pettersson
#63. I love the cancer spoon! #Quote by Vicki Pettersson
Cancer quotes by Arlene J. Chai
#64. Watch it ... people who keep things inside them develop all sorts of disease ... all that emotional gunk's got to find an outlet. Angry people develop cysts; stubborn people get arthritis; resentful people die of cancer. #Quote by Arlene J. Chai
Cancer quotes by Donald Hall
#65. IT IS SENSIBLE of me to be aware that I will die one of these days. I will not pass away. Every day millions of people pass away - in obituaries, death notices, cards of consolation, e-mails to the corpse's friends - but people don't die. Sometimes they rest in peace, quit this world, go the way of all flesh, depart, give up the ghost, breathe a last breath, join their dear ones in heaven, meet their Maker, ascend to a better place, succumb surrounded by family, return to the Lord, go home, cross over, or leave this world. Whatever the fatuous phrase, death usually happens peacefully (asleep) or after a courageous struggle (cancer). Sometimes women lose their husbands. (Where the hell did I put him?) Some expressions are less common in print: push up the daisies, kick the bucket, croak, buy the farm, cash out. All euphemisms conceal how we gasp and choke turning blue. #Quote by Donald Hall
Cancer quotes by Kathryn Joosten
#66. Cancer will be with me for the rest of my life, be it as a nodule, tumor or cell someplace, or in my fears and anxieties. #Quote by Kathryn Joosten
Cancer quotes by Regina Spektor
#67. Well, you're part of the human fabric of experience. You don't have to have cancer to write about cancer. You don't have to have somebody close to you die to understand what death is. Definitely, the more you live, the more experiences fall into your spectrum, but I have songs like "Chemo Limo," or "Ode to Divorce" - I wrote that when I was 18. And I remember having people come up to me and be like, "You totally described what it feels like to get divorced!" As a writer, you must have been told: Write about what you know. But Kafka didn't. Gogol didn't. Did Shakespeare write only what he knew? Did Camus? Our own selves are limitless.And our capacity for empathy is giant. That's why we're able to feel sympathy for, you know, a dog who has a puppy in its litter that died; we can feel for that, and write about that. I've never seen that, I just see things sometimes in my mind's eye.I guess it sounds sort of hippie, and probably is, but I do feel that we're all part of the experience. So in that way, I guess you don't have to compartmentalize. You could just kind of let it all be. #Quote by Regina Spektor
Cancer quotes by Jo Nesbo
#68. Everyone knew that fat had become the new cancer, yet they bellyached about the dieting hysteria and applauded the "real" women's body. As though doing no exercise and being overfed was some kind of sensible mold. #Quote by Jo Nesbo
Cancer quotes by John Stossel
#69. Any money the government spends must be taxed, borrowed or conjured out of thin air by the Federal Reserve, and that will reduce sound private investment. Obama has no real wealth to inject into the economy. He can only move around existing money while inflation robs us of purchasing power. Meanwhile, private investors who might have produced a better engine, battery, computer, cancer treatment or other wealth-creating and life-enhancing innovations hold back for fear that big government will undermine productive efforts. #Quote by John Stossel
Cancer quotes by Vikrmn
#70. Cancer can touch you, but not your soul; neither your thoughts, nor your heart. #Quote by Vikrmn
Cancer quotes by Rob Brezsny
#71. The average American child sees 20,000 murders in TV before reaching age 18. This is considered normal. Every community has video rental stores filled with multimillion-dollar films that depict people doing terrible things to each other. If you read newspapers, you have every right to believe that Bad Nasty Things compose 90 percent of the human experience. But you will be hard-pressed to find more than a few novels, films, news stories, and TV shows that dare to depict life as a gift whose purpose is to enrich the human soul. #Quote by Rob Brezsny
Cancer quotes by Jon Porter
#72. We must work to ensure that the Nevada Cancer Institute continues to receive the dollars necessary to make it a vibrant source of research and clinical assistance for cancer victims throughout the state of Nevada and the nation. #Quote by Jon Porter
Cancer quotes by D. Nichole King
#73. I was strong because cancer is resolute, and I didn't want the beast to win. #Quote by D. Nichole King
Cancer quotes by Nalo Hopkinson
#74. We are all here, all the powers of the Ginen lives for all the centuries that they have been in existence, and we all fight. We change when change is needed. We are a little different in each place that the Ginen have come to rest, and any one of is already many powers. No cancer can fell us all, no blight cover us completely. #Quote by Nalo Hopkinson
Cancer quotes by Levon Helm
#75. I had throat cancer, and I had to have radiation treatments, and I couldn't sing for a long time; and this was in '97. I had 28 radiation treatments. I didn't die, thank God. #Quote by Levon Helm
Cancer quotes by Truman Capote
#76. It's a bore, but the answer is good things only happen to you if you're good. Good? Honest is more what I mean. Not lawtype honest
I'd rob a grave, I'd steal two-bits off a dead man's eyes if I thought it would contribute to the day's enjoyment
but unto-thyself-type honest. Be anything but a coward, a pretender, an emotional crook, a whore: I'd rather have cancer than a dishonest heart. Which isn't being pious. Just practical. Cancer may cool you, but the other's sure to. #Quote by Truman Capote
Cancer quotes by Noel Ignatiev
#77. If you are a white male, you don't deserve to live. You are a cancer, you're a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He's good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others! #Quote by Noel Ignatiev
Cancer quotes by Jose Saramago
#78. The chronicler would abandon any idea of making a detailed report of all the other ills that are afflicting most of the nearly three hundred inmates being kept in this inhumane quarantine, but he could not fail to mention at least two cases of fairly advanced cancer, for the authorities had no humanitarian scruples when rounded up the blind and confining them here, they even stated that the laws once made is the same for everyone and that democracy is incompatible with preferential treatment. As cruel fate would have it, amongst all these inmates there is only one doctor, and an ophthalmologist at that, the last thing we need. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Cancer quotes by Imran Khan
#79. India is using troops in Kashmir. They are losing the battle of heart and minds. It's like treating cancer with dispirin. #Quote by Imran Khan
Cancer quotes by M. Starks
#80. It is the first time I realize just how much this has taken a toll on my parents. Not the toll of recovering from cancer, or worrying about the bills. The toll paid with fear. A way of life altered completely. Our lives are now on display for those in the community to judge.

I imagine there is a before and after for my parents as well. Before the girls went missing and our lives were normal. After one of the kids is found and the other isn't. #Quote by M. Starks
Cancer quotes by Mindy Sterling
#81. I know it was harder for me taking care of my dad during his cancer than it was going through my own. You feel more helpless as a caregiver. #Quote by Mindy Sterling
Cancer quotes by Olivia Newton-John
#82. I used homeopathy, acupuncture, yoga and meditation in conjunction with my chemotherapy to help me get stronger again after the cancer. I also chanted with Buddhist friends and prayed with Christian friends. I covered all my bases. #Quote by Olivia Newton-John
Cancer quotes by Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
#83. What really got me focused on cancer was when my best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer, and even though she was a well-to-do person, I found that her treatment costs were crippling. #Quote by Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
Cancer quotes by David Pilling
#84. Only in economics is endless expansion seen as a virtue. In biology it is called cancer. #Quote by David Pilling
Cancer quotes by Giuliana Rancic
#85. I started realizing I could be an example for women to not just be aware of breast cancer but to act on it, to make an appointment, to give themselves an exam. #Quote by Giuliana Rancic
Cancer quotes by Jonathan Ames
#86. It was another sunny day, good for skin cancer and playing tennis. #Quote by Jonathan Ames
Cancer quotes by Charles Bukowski
#87. I couldn't get myself to read the want ads. The thought of sitting in front of a man behind a desk and telling him that I wanted a job, that I was qualified for a job, was too much for me. Frankly, I was horrified by life, at what a man had to do simply in order to eat, sleep, and keep himself clothed. So I stayed in bed and drank. When you drank the world was still out there, but for the moment it didn't have you by the throat. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Cancer quotes by William S. Burroughs
#88. Listen to my last words anywhere. Listen to my last words any world. Listen all you boards syndicates and governments of the earth. And you powers behind what filth consummated in what lavatory to take what is not yours. To sell the ground from unborn feet forever -
"Don't let them see us. Don't tell them what we are doing -"
Are these the words of the all-powerful boards and syndicates of the earth?
"For God's sake don't let that Coca-Cola thing out - "
"Not The Cancer Deal with The Venusians - "
"Not The Green Deal - Don't show them that - "
"Not The Orgasm Death - "
"Not the ovens - "
Listen: I call you all. Show your cards all players. Pay it all pay it all pay it all back. Play it all pay it all play it all back. For all to see. In Times Square. In Picadilly.
"Premature. Premature. Give us a little more time."
Time for what? More lies? Premature? Premature for who? I say to all these words are not premature. These words may be too late. Minutes to go. Minutes to foe goal -
"Top Secret - Classified - For The Board - The Elite - The Initiates -
Are these the words of the all-powerful boards and syndicates of the earth? These are the words of liars cowards collaborators traitors. Liars who want time for more lies. Cowards who can not face your "dogs" your "gooks" your "errand boys" your "human animals" with the truth. Collaborators with Insect People with Vegetable People. With any people anywhere who offer you a b #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Cancer quotes by Mango Wodzak
#89. Selling cakes and pies to raise money for research into cancer or any other health related issue, is like selling meat at a campaign to raise awareness about the environment. #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Cancer quotes by Paul Douglas
#90. It's a terrible thing that we cannot really trust the FDA or NCI (National Cancer Institute). We need, therefore, an independent scientific investigation. #Quote by Paul Douglas
Cancer quotes by Kelvin Ogilvie
#91. With regard to testimony from various experts, there was pro and con. The argument was very articulately made that many provinces allow mature minors - minors capable of making the decision - to make decisions on their own treatment in very serious cases, including cancer. They are given the right to ask for medical treatment to be withheld, so long as they understand. #Quote by Kelvin Ogilvie
Cancer quotes by Richard A. Muller
#92. THIS book is radioactive. And so are you. Unless you are dead, in which case we can tell how long ago you died by how much of your radioactivity is left. That's what radiocarbon dating is - the measurement of the reduction of radioactivity of old bones to deduce the time of death. Alcohol is radioactive too - at least the kind we drink. Rubbing alcohol usually isn't, unless it was made organically - that is, from wood. In fact, the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tests wine, gin, whiskey, and vodka for radioactivity. A fifth of whiskey must emit at least 400 beta rays every minute or the drink is considered unfit for human consumption. Biofuels are radioactive. Fossil fuels are not. Of those killed by the Hiroshima atomic bomb, the best estimate is that fewer than 2% died of radiation-induced cancer. These statements are all true. They are not even disputed, at least by experts. Yet they surprise most people. #Quote by Richard A. Muller
Cancer quotes by Chelsea Handler
#93. There's tons of information on the Internet, so if you type in cancer, they'll give you 15, 000 different options to get involved with cancer. It's very easy to get involved if you want to get involved, especially to volunteer your time. #Quote by Chelsea Handler
Cancer quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#94. There is no point treating a depressed person as though she were just feeling sad, saying, 'There now, hang on, you'll get over it.' Sadness is more or less like a head cold- with patience, it passes. Depression is like cancer. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Cancer quotes by Stephanie McMahon
#95. Whether you're a mother or father, or a husband or a son, or a niece or a nephew or uncle, breast cancer doesn't discriminate. #Quote by Stephanie McMahon
Cancer quotes by Kate Bowler
#96. I can't reconcile the way that the world is jolted by events that are wonderful and terrible, the gorgeous and the tragic. Except that I am beginning to believe that these opposites do not cancel each other out. I see a middle aged woman in the waiting room of the cancer clinic, her arms wrapped around the frail frame of her son. She squeezes him tightly, oblivious to the way he looks down at her sheepishly. He laughs after a minute, a hostage to her impervious love. Joy persists somehow and I soak it in. The horror of cancer has made everything seem like it is painted in bright colors. I think the same thoughts again and again. Life is so beautiful. Life is so hard. #Quote by Kate Bowler
Cancer quotes by Barbara Marx Hubbard
#97. "Christ" states that those who see themselves as "separate" and not "divine" hinder humanity's ability to spiritually evolve. Those who deny their own "divinity" are like "cancer cells" in the body of God. #Quote by Barbara Marx Hubbard
Cancer quotes by Kate Del Castillo
#98. I've always wanted my own fragrance; Avon pairs with the way I think: what they do and represent, what they do for women, and the good causes such as domestic violence, and breast cancer. #Quote by Kate Del Castillo
Cancer quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#99. I am not afraid to die; I am only afraid of saying goodbye to you forever. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Cancer quotes by Hadiqa Kiani
#100. Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre is a genuine project and a living proof of generosity of the people of Pakistan. #Quote by Hadiqa Kiani
Cancer quotes by Jim Stynes
#101. If you don't have cancer, cherish life. If you do, cherish it even more #Quote by Jim Stynes
Cancer quotes by Drica Pinotti
#102. I've been able to make totally insane associations. I can transform a simple toothache into maxillary cancer. An itchy elbow becomes an urticarial eruption, and a simple sneeze, pneumonia. That's why I have already thought about joining a help group, like HA – Hypochondriacs Anonymous" Amanda Loeb #Quote by Drica Pinotti
Cancer quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#103. Our life alternates between billets and the front. We have almost grown accustomed to it; war is the cause of death like cancer and tuberculosis, like influenza and dysentery. The deaths are merely #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Cancer quotes by John Green
#104. My cancer is me. The tumors are made of me. They're made of me as surely as my brain and my heart are made of me. It is a civil war with a predetermined winner #Quote by John Green
Cancer quotes by Mindy Sterling
#105. It is so important to talk about your cancer and the feelings you have about it. #Quote by Mindy Sterling
Cancer quotes by Richard Condon
#106. Although the paranoiacs make the great leaders, it's the resenters who make their best instruments because the resenters, those men with cancer of the psyche, make the great assassins. #Quote by Richard Condon
Cancer quotes by Lori Lansens
#107. Before she closed her eyes tonight, Rose said she regretted that she has not done something heroic in her life. Well, it's not like she can suddenly climb a tree and save a cat, or go to medical school and begin some important cancer research. But Rose has been my sister. I think that's heroic. #Quote by Lori Lansens
Cancer quotes by Maya Angelou
#108. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats ... #Quote by Maya Angelou
Cancer quotes by Grete Waitz
#109. Another inspiration that has helped me get through has been Lance Armstrong's story. My cancer is not nearly as bad as his, but I believe in staying motivated and keeping as fit as you can. #Quote by Grete Waitz
Cancer quotes by Kelly Corrigan
#110. Cancer is a growth hormone for empathy, and empathy makes us useful to each other in ways we were not, could not have been, before. #Quote by Kelly Corrigan
Cancer quotes by Michael B. Jones
#111. Living's hard," Doris said. "I got three kids with different daddies. I'm fat, can't stop smoking, and I've worked in this cave since God was in diapers. My momma scrubbed toilets most her life, worked sunup to sundown until she got the cancer. When I tried to sell the TV and get her some chemo, she said, 'Don't you dare, Doris. Don't you dare drag this thing out. #Quote by Michael B. Jones
Cancer quotes by Amy Hoggart
#112. My father, Simon Hoggart, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June 2010. By this point, it had spread to his spleen and metastasised in his lungs and so was pronounced terminal. #Quote by Amy Hoggart
Cancer quotes by Charles Duhigg
#113. In 1980, a woman promised her dying sister to change how Americans thought about breast cancer. Thirty years later, the result - the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation - is one of the nation's largest non-profits, and one of the most successful triumphs in public health marketing and changing health habits. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Cancer quotes by T. Colin Campbell
#114. Population studies begun forty to fifty years ago show that when people migrate from one country to another, they acquire the cancer rate of the country to which they move, despite the fact their genes remain the same. #Quote by T. Colin Campbell
Cancer quotes by Alex Berenson
#115. The difference between microeconomics and macroeconomics is a bit like the difference between biology and medicine. Knowing that certain genes increase the risk of cancer is relatively easy. Figuring out exactly which people will get sick, or how to cure them, is a lot more complicated. #Quote by Alex Berenson
Cancer quotes by Warsan Shire
#116. Apathy is the same as war, it all kills you, she says. Slow like cancer in the breast or fast like a machete in the neck. #Quote by Warsan Shire
Cancer quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#117. Every generation of cancer cells creates a small number of cells that is genetically different from its parents. When a chemotherapeutic drug or the immune system attacks cancer, mutant clones that can resist the attack grow out. #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Cancer quotes by Amy Hoggart
#118. The thing with cancer is that it's usually the chemo rather than the disease itself that makes the patient feel so ill, particularly at the start. #Quote by Amy Hoggart
Cancer quotes by Susan Barbara Apollon
#119. Focusing on thoughts or images that make you feel good will enable you to be at a higher level energetically and, consequently, will draw to you a higher level of vibrational experience. In other words, positive thoughts will attract positive experiences. The reverse is also true. If you've fallen into the habit of negative obsessing and/or fear-based thinking, you need to know that you can shift to a healthier, happier mindset. #Quote by Susan Barbara Apollon
Cancer quotes by Clint Eastwood
#120. Movies are fun, but they are no cure for cancer. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Cancer quotes by Kevin Whately
#121. With something like cancer, there is a feeling that you can fight it in some way or control your response to it, but with dementia there is the fear of losing control of your mind and your life. #Quote by Kevin Whately
Cancer quotes by Randy Pausch
#122. I think that we all stand on the dartboard of life. Roughly 30,000 people a year are going to catch a dart labeled pancreatic cancer, and that's unfortunate. It's not what I would have chosen. But I in no way feel like I deserved it. #Quote by Randy Pausch
Cancer quotes by Heather Choate Davis
#123. We love Christmas presents but not Christ; Easter baskets but not crosses. We want to tell our friends with cancer that we will pray for them (we don't) and our puddle-eyed children that their goldfish have gone to heaven (doubtful). When we lose our jobs we want to take comfort in the idea that God doesn't give us more than we can handle, but really, how can we? We have absolutely no idea what God has given us or what it might be for. We haven't talked to Him in ages. #Quote by Heather Choate Davis
Cancer quotes by Esther Perel
#124. Because I believe that some good can come out of the crisis of infidelity, I have often been asked, "So, would you recommend an affair to a struggling couple?" My response? A lot of people have positive, life-changing experiences that come along with terminal illness. But I would not recommend having an affair than I would recommend getting cancer. #Quote by Esther Perel
Cancer quotes by Wayne Swan
#125. The word 'cancer' carries with it enormous fear, fear for the future, fear for family. #Quote by Wayne Swan
Cancer quotes by Kelvin Ogilvie
#126. If you could read some of the stories that we had before us of parents of children dying of, let's say, bone cancer. Or people who dealt with family members drowning in their own bodies, in the end, suffering without any hope of modern medical science easing their pain or offering any comfort. With the absolute knowledge that they were going to die anyway. I can't quite comprehend how we could want those people to continue to suffer that extreme agony on the understanding that it is the will of a creator or some other philosophical concept. #Quote by Kelvin Ogilvie
Cancer quotes by Kevin Devine
#127. You were a cancer and I've carved you out, and I never feel so sick now. #Quote by Kevin Devine
Cancer quotes by Janet Evanovich
#128. My son never eats baloney. He says the stuff in baloney will kill you. I say when? I've got cataracts, high blood pressure, enlarged prostate, skin cancer, hemorrhoids, an artificial hip, false teeth, and gas. Every day I take eleven different pills and a stool softener. And now I'm supposed to worry about baloney. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Cancer quotes by Jim Valvano
#129. But try if you can to support, whether it's AIDS or the cancer foundation, so that someone else might survive, might prosper, and might actually be cured of this dreaded disease. #Quote by Jim Valvano
Cancer quotes by David Wolfe
#130. Chaga is the most powerful cancer-fighting herb known and fights all kinds of radiation damage to healthy tissue. #Quote by David Wolfe
Cancer quotes by Tig Notaro
#131. It's almost embarrassing how much support I have. I mean, I always tell people I feel like I'm perfectly set up to have cancer. I have great health insurance, I have a savings account. I have work lined up. I have friends and family. I have the best doctors I can get. #Quote by Tig Notaro
Cancer quotes by Richard J. Foster
#132. Overconsumption is a "cancer eating away at our spiritual vitals." It cuts the heart right out of our compassion. It distances us from the great masses of broken bleeding humanity. It converts us into materialists. We become less able to ask moral questions. For example, just because we have the economic muscle to buy up vast amounts of the world's oil, does that give us the right to do so? When the poor farmer of India is unable to buy a gallon of gasoline to run his simple water pump because the world's demand has priced him out of the market, who is to blame? #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Cancer quotes by Albert A. Bartlett
#133. We must realize that growth is but an adolescent phase of life which stops when physical maturity is reached. If growth continues in the period of maturity it is called obesity or cancer. Prescribing growth as the cure for the energy crisis has all the logic of prescribing increasing quantities of food as a remedy for obesity. #Quote by Albert A. Bartlett
Cancer quotes by Robert Irvine
#134. When you first get into television it is a big deal, then you realize you are no better than anyone else, we just have a platform to use, to help other people. I use that platform for the work I do in the military, the work I do with cancer because I was fortunate enough to get that platform. #Quote by Robert Irvine
Cancer quotes by Paul Stamets
#135. The virus-to-cancer connection is where medicinal mushrooms offer unique opportunities for medical research. #Quote by Paul Stamets
Cancer quotes by D.B.C. Pierre
#136. Imagine the spirit as a mansion. You'll guess we don't use many rooms. Apart from a few moments in childhood we don't dance around it in sunlight. But there's a traffic of things in and out, and what happens is that unwanted bulks can gather inside. Gather and gather, menacing us. Unable to shift them, we hide in ever-smaller spaces. And in our last hole, life offers a choice: to play out our demise in parallel theatres - psychosis, zealotry, religion, cancer, addiction - or to bow quietly out. But beware: life doesn't ask these high questions when we're confident and fresh - it waits for hopelessness. #Quote by D.B.C. Pierre
Cancer quotes by Jenna Morasca
#137. My mother did not want cancer to interfere with my life, as she knew it would eventually end hers. #Quote by Jenna Morasca
Cancer quotes by Joel Osteen
#138. The cancer wasn't a stumbling block. #Quote by Joel Osteen
Cancer quotes by Neil Gaiman
#139. Czernobog snorted and woke, sitting up slowly. "I dreamed a strange dream," he said. "I dreamed that I am truly Bielebog. That forever the world imagines that there are two of us, the light god and the dark, but that now we are both old, I find it was only me all the time, giving them gifts, taking my gifts away." He broke the filter from a Lucky Strike, put it between his lips and lit it with his lighter. Shadow wound down his window. "Aren't you worried about lung cancer?" he said. "I am cancer," said Czernobog. "I do not frighten myself. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Cancer quotes by Haruki Murakami
#140. The majority of people dismiss those things that lie beyond the bounds of their own understanding as absurd and not worth thinking about. I myself can only wish that my stories were, indeed, nothing but incredible fabrications. I have stayed alive all these years clinging to the frail hope that these memories of mine were nothing but a dream or a delusion. I have struggled to convince myself that they never happened. But each time I tried to push them into the dark, they came back stronger and more vivid than ever. Like cancer cells, these memories have taken root in my mind and eaten into my flesh. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Cancer quotes by Meg Rosoff
#141. My younger sister Debby had died of cancer, which started me writing - the sense of life being short. Cancer focuses your mind. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Cancer quotes by Aime Cesaire
#142. Prospero, you are the master of illusion.
Lying is your trademark.
And you have lied so much to me
(Lied about the world, lied about me)
That you have ended by imposing on me
An image of myself.
Underdeveloped, you brand me, inferior,
That s the way you have forced me to see myself
I detest that image! What's more, it's a lie!
But now I know you, you old cancer,
And I know myself as well. #Quote by Aime Cesaire
Cancer quotes by Marion Coutts
#143. Maintaining the thinnest facade of a functioning family that tries to act as others do - plan ahead, drive somewhere, go on holiday, relax - is beyond us. We are smashed. Insecurity jams the gears on every action. Each time we are toppled. I feel a fool over and over again for trying. #Quote by Marion Coutts
Cancer quotes by Paul Davies
#144. Cancer is like another form of life. It's closely related to healthy life. A healthy body is one form of life. Cancer is in a way nature's experiment with life. #Quote by Paul Davies
Cancer quotes by Skloot
#145. A book that I would recommend for everyone: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. #Quote by Skloot
Cancer quotes by Sherwin B. Nuland
#146. In the community of living tissues, the uncontrolled mob of misfits that is cancer behaves like a gang of perpetually wilding adolescents. They are the juvenile delinquents of cellular society. #Quote by Sherwin B. Nuland
Cancer quotes by Tom Rath
#147. I'm a researcher, so I'm realistic that there's nothing I'm doing that's going to prevent me from getting cancer in the future. But I can slow it down. #Quote by Tom Rath
Cancer quotes by Rebecca Yarros
#148. I'm twenty-five years old, trying to run a growing business, raise twins on my own, and in the middle of…" My hands flailed, motioning to everything on my desk "…cancer. I don't' have time to go chasing romance. I don't care how good-looking he is." Or how massive his arms were. None of that mattered. #Quote by Rebecca Yarros
Cancer quotes by Chris Kilham
#149. Mistletoe, the same plant you kiss under at holiday time, may be an effective aid against certain types of cancer. #Quote by Chris Kilham
Cancer quotes by Anthony Warlow
#150. When I had my cancer, the chemotherapy took my hair away. So then I decided I would just keep it short, and this is my signature now. The great thing about it is that I am a bit of a chameleon, so you can put a wig on me and I look totally different. #Quote by Anthony Warlow
Cancer quotes by Amy Robach
#151. Having cancer is one thing; looking like you have cancer is another thing. It's a disease that already takes so much. #Quote by Amy Robach

#152. (They) were found guilty of continuing to promote the merits of Laetrile in cancer therapy in violation of terms of probation they had originally secured following their 1973 conviction. #Quote by Ernst T. Krebs
Cancer quotes by Kelly Corrigan
#153. It's clear to you immediately that you can have anything you want when you have cancer. #Quote by Kelly Corrigan
Cancer quotes by Jerry Bridges
#154. Uncontrolled temper is soon dissipated on others. Resentment, bitterness, and self-pity build up inside our hearts and eat away at our spiritual lives like a slowly spreading cancer. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Cancer quotes by Cancercenter
#155. Cancer Center specialists will be experts in the conclusion and treatment of kidney and diverse ailments. We apply a multi-disciplinary approach to manage tolerant thought. #Quote by Cancercenter
Cancer quotes by Joe Eszterhas
#156. Anyone I think who - that would go through a cancer ward and would see the result of what smoking does, would never, ever think of smoking is sexy again. #Quote by Joe Eszterhas
Cancer quotes by James Hansen
#157. Chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to [should] be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature; [Hansen] accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming in the same way that tobacco companies blurred the links between smoking and cancer. #Quote by James Hansen
Cancer quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#158. I have refused to believe that Mother will die. And by denying her cancer, even her death, I deny her life. Denial stops us from listening. I cannot hear what Mother is saying. I can only hear what I want. But denial lies. It protects us from the potency of a truth we cannot yet bear to accept. It takes our hands and leads us to places of comfort. Denial flourishes in the familiar. It seduces us with our own desires and cleverly constructs walls around us to keep us safe. #Quote by Terry Tempest Williams
Cancer quotes by Barack Obama
#159. Hope
Hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of uncertainty. The audacity of hope! In the end, that is God's greatest gift to us ... A belief in things not seen. A belief that there are better days ahead. #Quote by Barack Obama
Cancer quotes by Shirley Corder
#160. There's only one way to become an eagle, and that's to be born an eagle. #Quote by Shirley Corder
Cancer quotes by David Fairchild
#161. Never to have seen anything but the temperate zone is to have lived on the fringe of the world. Between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Tropic of Cancer live the majority of all the plant species, the vast majority of the insects, most of the strange ... quadrupeds, all of the great and most of the poisonous snakes and large lizards, most of the brilliantly colored sea fishes, and the strangest and most gorgeously plumaged of the birds. #Quote by David Fairchild
Cancer quotes by Louise L. Hay
#162. The mental thought patterns that cause the most dis-ease in the body are CRITICISM, ANGER, RESENTMENT and GUILT. For instance, criticism indulged in long enought will often lead to dis-eases such as arthritis. Anger turns into things that boil and burn and infect the body. Resentment long held festers and eats away at the self and ultimately can lead to tumors and cancer. Guilt always seeks punishment and leads to pain. #Quote by Louise L. Hay
Cancer quotes by Chang-rae Lee
#163. Our tainted world looms within us, every one. #Quote by Chang-rae Lee
Cancer quotes by David Hewson
#164. Perhaps," he continued, "this capacity for evil is in all of us, then, and it's largely down to fortune whether we encounter the circumstance that breathes life into it or not. Just as it's luck that determines when or if that faulty gene breaks and gives you cancer or Marfan or the physique of an Olympian. #Quote by David Hewson
Cancer quotes by Jane Mayer
#165. As scientists linked smoking to cancer, the tobacco industry was under particularly pointed attack, which might have heightened Powell's alarmism. As a director at Philip Morris from 1964 until he joined the Supreme Court, Powell was an unabashed defender of tobacco, signing off on a series of annual reports lashing out at critics. The company's 1967 annual report, for instance, declared, "We deplore the lack of objectivity in so important a controversy ... Unfortunately the positive benefits of smoking which are so widely acknowledged are largely ignored by many reports linking cigarettes and health, and little attention is paid to the scientific reports which are favorable to smoking." Powell took umbrage at the refusal by the Federal Communications Commission to grant the tobacco companies "equal time" to respond to their critics on television and argued that the companies' First Amendment rights were being infringed. #Quote by Jane Mayer
Cancer quotes by Lucia Berlin
#166. Sally wasn't crying about their dead mother or her cancer. She was crying because her husband, Alfonso, had left her after twenty years for a young woman. It seemed a brutal thing to do, just after her mastectomy. She was devastated, but no, she wouldn't ever divorce him, even though the woman was pregnant and he wanted to marry her.

"They can just wait until I die. I'll be dead soon, probably next year..." Sally wept but the ocean drowned out the sound. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Cancer quotes by Michael Greger
#167. Many people assume the diseases that kill us are pre-programmed into our genes. High blood pressure by 55, heart attacks at 60, maybe cancer at 70, and so on ... But for most of the leading causes of death, our genes usually account for only 10-20 per cent of risk. #Quote by Michael Greger
Cancer quotes by Steven Weinberg
#168. It seems a bit unfair to my relatives to be murdered in order to provide an opportunity for free will for Germans, but even putting that aside, how does free will account for cancer? Is it an opportunity of free will for tumors? #Quote by Steven Weinberg
Cancer quotes by Randolph M. Nesse
#169. If you could make male mortality rates the same as female rates, you would do more good than curing cancer. #Quote by Randolph M. Nesse
Cancer quotes by Regina Brett
#170. Cancer taught me to live only in the day I'm in. In the moment I'm in. Some moments, I simply ground myself by touching the desk, the table, the wall wherever I am and say, 'You're right here. Stay put in this moment.' #Quote by Regina Brett
Cancer quotes by Lynn Redgrave
#171. Well, right now, technically, I have no breast cancer. #Quote by Lynn Redgrave
Cancer quotes by Betty Rollins
#172. Awful things happen to an awful lot of us & it's a happy moment when you start noticing some kind of payoff. Cancer survivors for ex, notice that they're breathing in a way other people don't. And because they are breathing they are grateful in a way a lot of people aren't. And grateful is a good place to wind up in life. It beats poor me. #Quote by Betty Rollins
Cancer quotes by George McGovern
#173. The Establishment center ... has led us into the stupidest and cruelest war in all history. That war is a moral and political disaster - a terrible cancer eating away at the soul of our nation. #Quote by George McGovern
Cancer quotes by Tom Robbins
#174. The beet must have been out of the ground a week or more, for it had the ashen exterior of a cancer victim. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Cancer quotes by Olivia Newton-John
#175. I feel so fortunate and grateful to be a survivor of breast cancer. I see it as a gift. #Quote by Olivia Newton-John
Cancer quotes by Victoria Gotti
#176. The day I found out, the day I got my mammogram and the doctor told me I had breast cancer, it was mid-November. #Quote by Victoria Gotti
Cancer quotes by Jane Pauley
#177. My goal is to see that mental illness is treated like cancer. #Quote by Jane Pauley
Cancer quotes by Lance Armstrong
#178. The unwillingness to accept anything short of victory, that underlying fury, is the fundamental building block of my bottomless motivation to succeed. It is my credo in all that I do in life from battling cancer to bicycle racing. #Quote by Lance Armstrong
Cancer quotes by Joe Eszterhas
#179. I've seen Joe take on many battles, cancer being one of them, and the determination that he has, and he won't stop, he's not going to make one announcement and write one editorial and go away. #Quote by Joe Eszterhas
Cancer quotes by Jenna Morasca
#180. Very few people around the world know that cancer kills more people than HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined - until we get everyone to realize that, it will be tough to get them to act. #Quote by Jenna Morasca
Cancer quotes by Dane Cook
#181. My mom and dad passed away from cancer. Within nine months, I lost both of my folks. Immediately after that, I had a horrible betrayal where my brother, who worked for me, stole a lot of my money. He's in jail now. #Quote by Dane Cook
Cancer quotes by Daniel J. Boorstin
#182. Disagreement produces debate but dissent produces dissension. #Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin
Cancer quotes by Fwah Storm
#183. You see, when I was growing up I watched my mother battle with cancer...she died when I was 15 after going through five years of treatment...and during all that time you could see that the treatment was like torture to her...It seemed like the doctors were pumping her full of chemicals just to prolong the suffering...so when I saw the chance to make a difference, I was determined to get it right! #Quote by Fwah Storm
Cancer quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#184. The function of a writer is to call a spade a spade. If words are sick, it is up to us to cure them. Instead of that, many writers live off this sickness. In many cases modern literature is a cancer of words ... There is nothing more deplorable than the literary practice which, I believe, is called poetic prose and which consists of using words for the obscure harmonics which reosund about them and which are made up of vague meanings which are in contradiction with the clear meaning ... That is not all: we are living in an age of mystifications. Some are fundamental ones which are due to the structure of society; some are secondary. At any rate, the social order today rests upon the mystification of consciousness, as does disorder as well. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Cancer quotes by B.C. Forbes
#185. Jealousy ... is a mental cancer. #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Cancer quotes by Tyler Perry
#186. Bitterness is as toxic as stage 4 cancer. #Quote by Tyler Perry
Cancer quotes by Joe Biden
#187. One of the reasons to pick the cancer effort is to demonstrate to people that there's not much beyond our capacity. It will take time, but if we focus, if we narrow down where the bottle necks are and we move, there's never been a problem we can't solve. #Quote by Joe Biden
Cancer quotes by Cynthia Nixon
#188. Cancer is really hard to go through and it's really hard to watch someone you love go through, and I know because I have been on both sides of the equation. #Quote by Cynthia Nixon
Cancer quotes by Jack Newman
#189. Women should know the truth. They can take it; they are adults, not children. If a mother opts for formula rather than breastfeeding, there is good evidence that her baby will score lower on IQ tests and will have a higher risk of many illnesses including some cancers, diabetes, respiratory illnesses, diarrhea and ear infections. She should know that her own risk of breast, ovarian and uterine cancer will be higher, as well as her daughter's risk of breast cancer. The mother increases her own risk of diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and becoming overweight by "choosing" formula feeding. There is accumulating evidence that the risk of mental illness (alcoholism, ADHD, schizophrenia) is increased by not breastfeeding. A recent study suggested that even behaviour problems in adolescents are more likely if the child was formula fed. The longer the child is breastfed, the lower the risk both for the child and the mother. #Quote by Jack Newman
Cancer quotes by Suzanne Somers
#190. There are three types of chemotherapy that work for cancer. Testicular, like Lance Armstrong. Childhood leukemia, they're doing great things. And lymphoma and non-Hodgkin's. #Quote by Suzanne Somers
Cancer quotes by Michael McCaul
#191. Unfortunately, cancer is the number one killer of children in this country today, and it destroys not only these innocent victims, but their families as well. #Quote by Michael McCaul
Cancer quotes by Richard M. Schulze
#192. Natural healing has the power to cure pancreatic cancer. But usually, before I see the patient, medical treatments - not the disease - have destroyed the patient's body. #Quote by Richard M. Schulze
Cancer quotes by Henry Miller
#193. There will be more calamities, more death, more despair. Not the slightest indication of a change anywhere. The cancer of our time is eating us away. Our heroes have killed themselves, or are killing themselves. #Quote by Henry Miller
Cancer quotes by Steven Magee
#194. Almost everything is fixable. #Quote by Steven Magee
Cancer quotes by Sanchita Pandey
#195. Happiness is your inherent nature. In the hustle and bustle of life, you have forgotten a part of yourself, and looking for it outside. Fill this void with happiness that is sustainable, not transitory; that illuminates your life and that of others, that is life giving and so natural. #Quote by Sanchita Pandey
Cancer quotes by Jonathan Ames
#196. It's very hard not to commit cancer suicide in America. #Quote by Jonathan Ames
Cancer quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#197. Virginity is now a mere preamble or waiting room to be got out of as soon as possible; it is without significance. Old age is similarly a waiting room, where you go after life's over and wait for cancer or a stroke. The years before and after the menstrual years are vestigial: the only meaningful condition left to women is that of fruitfulness. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Cancer quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#198. Breast cancer, I can now report, did not make me prettier or stronger, more feminine or spiritual. What it gave me, if you want to call this a "gift," was a very personal, agonizing encounter with an ideological force in American culture that I had not been aware of before - one that encourages us to deny reality, submit cheerfully to misfortune, and blame only ourselves for our fate. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Cancer quotes by Wayne Muller
#199. If we do not allow for a rhythm of rest in our overly busy lives, illness becomes our Sabbath - our pneumonia, our cancer, our heart attack, our accidents create Sabbath for us. #Quote by Wayne Muller
Cancer quotes by Paul Kelly
#200. Fighting crime by building more jails is like fighting cancer by building more cemetaries. #Quote by Paul Kelly
