Doctors quotes by Adepero Oduye
#1. The reason why I found acting is because my father passed away. He passed away really young. I was going to go to med school. My father's dream was that all of his kids become doctors. I realized in school I didn't like it. When he died, it was like a wake-up call. Life is too short to do something you don't want to do. #Quote by Adepero Oduye
Doctors quotes by Rosemary Sutcliff
#2. But against sandfly fever one could be inoculated, and I have another, hideously vivid picture of a great menacing brute of a doctor sticking a Thing that ended in a vicious needle into my mother's arm. Mad to defend my own, I scrambled off my father's knee, and flew to her rescue. I fixed my teeth in the doctor's horrible hairy wrist and hung on like a terrier, until my father succeeded in prising me away. Afterwards, everybody said how wonderful the doctor had been, because he continued calmly giving the inoculation while I was prised off him, instead of breaking the needle in my mother's arm. But nobody said how brave it was of me, only three years old, when all is said and done, and gone in the legs at that, to take on such fearful odds for the sake of love. #Quote by Rosemary Sutcliff
Doctors quotes by Harvey Milk
#3. I cannot prevent anyone from getting angry, or mad, or frustrated. I can only hope that they'll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects I hope that every professional gay will say 'enough', come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help. #Quote by Harvey Milk
Doctors quotes by Eve Zibart
#4. The Missouri of his childhood was theoretically the inspiration for Main Street, U.S.A., though only in its halcyon summer vacation months and stripped of any dismal memories: no blizzards, no doctor's office, and no school-house. Almost no one has a dismal experience in Walt Disney's America, as a matter of fact, at least not that Walt noticed. #Quote by Eve Zibart
Doctors quotes by Ty Cobb
#5. When two doctors pass each other on the street they wink at each other. #Quote by Ty Cobb
Doctors quotes by Laura Ingalls Wilder
#6. Oh no, I never do much ironing, except the outside clothes. We must not iron out the fresh air and sunshine, you know. It is much more healthful not to, the doctors say. Seriously, there is something very refreshing about sheets and pillow slips just fresh from the line, after being washed and dried in the sun and air. Just try them that way and see if your sleep is not sweeter. #Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Doctors quotes by William Julius Wilson
#7. But the person who scored well on an SAT will not necessarily be the best doctor or the best lawyer or the best businessman. These tests do not measure character, leadership, creativity, perseverance. #Quote by William Julius Wilson
Doctors quotes by Diane Duane
#8. Doctors couldn't be everywhere, so the Lord invented Vulcans. I thought you knew. #Quote by Diane Duane
Doctors quotes by Thom Mayne
#9. In architecture, you arrive so late. I look at doctors, lawyers I know, and they're all buying boats and bailing out at 62. My career is just getting started. #Quote by Thom Mayne
Doctors quotes by Anton Chekhov
#10. Doctors are just the same as lawyers; the only difference is that lawyers merely rob you, whereas doctors rob you and kill you too. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Doctors quotes by Sanjeev Bhaskar
#11. I am officially a doctor, and believe it or not, I can save lives and tune certain instruments and can beat peasants with a stick. #Quote by Sanjeev Bhaskar
Doctors quotes by Philip K. Dick
#12. 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
Doctors 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
Doctors quotes by Stewart Stafford
#14. The coronavirus outbreak feels like an episode of The Twilight Zone. I went to see a doctor the other day, and they told me to wear a face mask. Then they said how much it would cost to see the doctor and I told them THEY were the ones who should be wearing masks! #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Doctors quotes by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
#15. I get that you have a huge ego and probably don't want to admit you're a disgusting, shallow bastard, but don't hide behind a doctor's note. #Quote by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
Doctors quotes by Margaret Clitherow
#16. The Church is that one wherein the true word of God is preached, which Christ left to His Apostles, which the same Church hath always observed, the doctors preached, and Martyrs and confessors witnessed. This is the Church I believe to be true. #Quote by Margaret Clitherow
Doctors quotes by Charles Dickens
#17. It may, at first sight, be matter of surprise to the thoughtless few that Mr Brass, being a professional gentleman, should not have legally indicted some party or parties, active in the promotion of the nuisance, but they will be good enough to remember, that as Doctors seldom take their own prescriptions, and Divines do not always practise what they preach, so lawyers are shy of meddling with the Law on their own account: knowing it to be an edged tool of uncertain application, very expensive in the working, and rather remarkable for its properties of close shaving, than for its always shaving the right person. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Doctors quotes by Vandana Shiva
#18. Nobody defines it as something women shouldn't be doing. In a way, there are more mathematicians, more doctors, more scientists in India than there are in this country. We even had a woman head of state, and that's something the United States has yet to catch up with. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
Doctors quotes by Ann Romney
#19. I think we identify ourselves by labels or things that we are able to do: I am this. I am a good cook. I am a good mother. I am a good this. I am a good doctor. I am a good lawyer. When you can't do those things anymore, you wonder where your identity is. #Quote by Ann Romney
Doctors quotes by Seth Godin
#20. If you took organic chemistry in college, you've experienced the Dip. Academia doesn't want too many unmotivated people to attempt medical school, so they set up a screen. Organic chemistry is the killer class, the screen that separates the doctors from the psychologists. If you can't handle organic chemistry, well, then, you can't go to med school. #Quote by Seth Godin
Doctors quotes by Carl Jung
#21. Medicines cure diseases, but only doctors can cure patients. #Quote by Carl Jung
Doctors quotes by Andrew McMahon
#22. I'm Doctor McMahon with a Ph.D. in sweet-ass rock with an emphasis in set list creation. #Quote by Andrew McMahon
Doctors quotes by Alice Tisdale Hobart
#23. Every theory in medicine, if medicine is to remain healthy, must be beaten out on the anvil of skepticism. So do we weed out charlatanism. #Quote by Alice Tisdale Hobart
Doctors quotes by Conor Oberst
#24. I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said, 'There's nothing that I can do for you that you can't do for yourself.' He said, 'Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that that would help.' So I sat with him a while then I asked him how he felt. He said, 'I think I'm cured.' #Quote by Conor Oberst
Doctors quotes by Denis Parsons Burkitt
#25. Western doctors are like poor plumbers. They treat a splashing tube by cleaning up the water. These plumbers are extremely apt at drying up the water, constantly inventing new, expensive, and refined methods of drying up water. Somebody should teach them how to close the tap. #Quote by Denis Parsons Burkitt
Doctors quotes by Juan Enriquez
#26. The housing crisis may not be the worst thing that's happened to New York City because it was becoming impossible for some of the young doctors, for some of the young artists, for some of the people that make the city so special to be able to live here. #Quote by Juan Enriquez
Doctors quotes by Rachel Naomi Remen
#27. Dieter said softly, 'My doctor's love is as important to me as his chemotherapy, but he does not know.' Dieter's statement meant a great deal to me. I had not known either. For a long time, I had carried the belief that as a physician my love didn't matter and the only thing of value I had to offer was my knowledge and skill. My training had argued me out of my truth. Medicine is as close to love as it is to science, and its relationships matter even at the edge of life itself. #Quote by Rachel Naomi Remen
Doctors quotes by Aeschylus
#28. Don't you know this, that words are doctors to a diseased temperment? #Quote by Aeschylus
Doctors quotes by Max Porter
#29. Perfect devices: doctors, ghosts and crows. We can do things other characters can't, like eat sorrow, un-birth secrets and have theatrical battles with language and God. #Quote by Max Porter
Doctors quotes by Jay Leno
#30. Before they went on vacation, Congress voted to exempt themselves from Obamacare. They gave themselves a special exemption because they thought it was too expensive. So the people who voted for Obamacare for us voted to exempt themselves from it. You know how doctors take the Hippocratic Oath. Congress apparently takes the 'Hypocritic Oath.' #Quote by Jay Leno
Doctors quotes by Lois Lowry
#31. I've always been interested in medicine and was pleased when my brother became a doctor. But after thinking seriously about that field, I realized that what intrigued me was not the science, not the chemistry or biology of medicine, but the narrative - the story of each patient, each illness. #Quote by Lois Lowry
Doctors quotes by Tommy Lasorda
#32. I walk into the clubhouse today and it's like walking into the Mayo Clinic. We have four doctors, three therapists and five trainers. Back when I broke in, we had one trainer who carried a bottle of rubbing alcohol, and by the 7th inning he'd already drunk it. #Quote by Tommy Lasorda
Doctors quotes by Henny Youngman
#33. A Polish man had a bandage on each ear. What happened? "I was ironing, and the phone rang!" "What about the other ear?" "Had to call the doctor!" #Quote by Henny Youngman
Doctors quotes by Fatih Akin
#34. I shot many scenes of Hamburg, albums full of postcard motifs, and I discarded almost all of them. I ride my bike through Hamburg every day. I go shopping here, I go to the doctor - and yet I no longer have the eye for telling stories about this damn city, even though I love it. #Quote by Fatih Akin
Doctors quotes by Rae Foley
#35. The doctor will persist in laboring under the delusion that patients want common sense instead of magic. #Quote by Rae Foley
Doctors quotes by Jimmy Carter
#36. (Doctors) collectively have done more to block adequate medical care for people of this country than any other single group. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Doctors quotes by Ray Bradbury
#37. But three, now, Christ three A.M.! Doctors say the body's at low tide then. The soul is out. The blood moves slow. You're the nearest to dead you'll ever be save dying. Sleep is a patch of death, but three in the morn, full wide-eyed staring, is living death! You dream with your eyes open. God, if you had strength to rouse up, you'd slaughter your half-dreams with buckshot! #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Doctors quotes by Natasha Richardson
#38. On the day we filmed the scene, a bee stung me. I screamed and cried so much they called a doctor, and my father said, "It can't hurt that badly!" But it wasn't the pain that upset me, it was the thought that I mightn't be in the film. Already the little professional. #Quote by Natasha Richardson
Doctors quotes by Charles Sorel
#39. Music and Dancing, not only give great pleasure but have the honour of depending on Mathematics, for they consist in number and in measure.....Therefore, whatever the old doctors may say, to employ oneself at all this is to be a Philosopher and a Mathematician. #Quote by Charles Sorel
Doctors quotes by Eric Thomas
#40. I've never wanted to be a doctor, I've never wanted to be an engineer, I've never had that goal, but when you're around people who are successful, you kind of feel some type of way like, I don't want to be a doctor or lawyer but I do want to be successful. #Quote by Eric Thomas
Doctors quotes by Aristotle.
#41. It is well said, then, that it is by doing just acts that the just man is produced, and by doing temperate acts the temperate man; without doing these no one would have even a prospect of becoming good. #Quote by Aristotle.
Doctors quotes by Susannah Cahalan
#42. How many people throughout history suffered from my disease and others like it but went untreated? This question is made more pressing by the knowledge that even though the disease was discovered in 2007, some doctors I spoke to believe that it's been around at least as long as humanity has. #Quote by Susannah Cahalan
Doctors quotes by Graham Swift
#43. I had a fear of becoming anything, a fear of becoming a specialist. I might have become a doctor, but if you become a doctor, that's your specialty in life and you are defined by it. One of the attractions of being a writer is that you're never a specialist. Your field is entirely open; your field is the entire human condition. #Quote by Graham Swift
Doctors quotes by Steven Van Zandt
#44. C-17s should be ready to go at various military bases around the world packed with water, food, medical supplies, sleeping bags and tents, all prepared to be air dropped in alongside soldiers and doctors to begin relief efforts. #Quote by Steven Van Zandt
Doctors quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#45. No matter what your profession – doctor, lawyer, architect, accountant – if you are an American, you better be good at the touchy-feely service stuff, because anything that can be digitized can be outsourced to either the smartest or the cheapest producer. #Quote by Thomas L. Friedman
Doctors quotes by Henny Youngman
#46. When I told my doctor I couldn't afford an operation, he offered to touch-up my X-rays. #Quote by Henny Youngman
Doctors quotes by Richard Rodriguez
#47. The popular idea of a role model implies that an adult's influence on a child is primarily occupational, and that all a black child needs is to see a black doctor, and then this child will think, "Oh, I can become a doctor too." #Quote by Richard Rodriguez
Doctors quotes by David Ogilvy
#48. The relationship between a manufacturer and his advertising agency is almost as intimate as the relationship between a patient and his doctor. Make sure that you can life happily with your prospective client before you accept his account. #Quote by David Ogilvy
Doctors quotes by Justin Chambers
#49. I would not be able to retain all the information, all the medical jargon these doctors do. I'm not really intelligent enough is what I'm saying. #Quote by Justin Chambers
Doctors quotes by Denis Johnson
#50. I know they argue about whether or not it's right, whether or not the baby is alive at this point or that point in its growth inside the womb. This wasn't about that. It wasn't what the lawyers did. It wasn't what the doctors did, it wasn't what the woman did. It was what the mother and father did together. #Quote by Denis Johnson
Doctors quotes by Edward Everett Hale
#51. In the name of Hypocrites, doctors have invented the most exquisite form of torture ever known to man: survival. #Quote by Edward Everett Hale
Doctors quotes by Ruth Brandon
#52. Obduracy can be overcome by determination. More insidious, and far harder to destroy, was women's internalizing of the notion that they were somehow inferior to men, a complementary species designed (in W.R. Greg's words) to 'complet[e], sweeten, and embellish the existence of others'. [Women] still chose to become nurses rather than doctors, secretaries rather than bosses: to be ill-paid facilitators for people no more talented nor, in many cases, better educated than themselves, but who simply happened to be men. The notion that they might be their bosses' equals penetrated only very slowly; the possibility that they might even be their superiors, though accepted in theory, has perhaps still not wholly sunk in. #Quote by Ruth Brandon
Doctors quotes by Bruce Kovner
#53. Fundamentalists who say they are not going to pay any attention to the charts are like a doctor who says he's not going to take a patient's temperature. #Quote by Bruce Kovner
Doctors quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#54. It is nearly 50 years since I was assured by a conclave of doctors that if I did not eat meat I should die of starvation. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Doctors quotes by Dana Perino
#55. I think, certainly, in history, if you look back, a lot of people would go through their careers, build a business, or be a doctor, lawyer, and then they would go and do public service later on in their careers. #Quote by Dana Perino
Doctors quotes by Andrew Weil
#56. Millions of Americans today are taking dietary supplements, practicing yoga and integrating other natural therapies into their lives. These are all preventive measures that will keep them out of the doctor's office and drive down the costs of treating serious problems like heart disease and diabetes. #Quote by Andrew Weil
Doctors quotes by Philip Ziegler
#57. Fourteenth-century men seemed to have regarded their doctor in rather the same way as the twentieth-century men are apt to regard their priest, with tolerance for someone who was doing his best and the respect due to a man of learning but also with a nagging and uncomfortable conviction that he was largely irrelevant to the real and urgent problems of their lives. #Quote by Philip Ziegler
Doctors quotes by Sarah Kane
#58. - I won't be able to think. I won't be able to work.
- Nothing will interfere with your work like suicide.
- I dreamt that I went to the doctor's and she gave me eight minutes to live. I'd been sitting in the fucking waiting room for half an hour.
(A long silence)
- Okay, let's do it, let's do the drugs, let's do the chemical lobotomy, let's shut down the higher functions of my brain and perhaps I'll be a bit more fucking capable of living.
Let's do it. #Quote by Sarah Kane
Doctors quotes by Sally Field
#59. When I was born, the doctor looked at my mother and said, 'Congratulations, you have an actor!' #Quote by Sally Field
Doctors quotes by Andrew Schneider
#60. As a doctor, as a man of science, I can tell you there is no such thing as curses Everything just happens as a question of probability. The statistical likelihood of a specific event. #Quote by Andrew Schneider
Doctors quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#61. The south produced statesmen and soldiers, planters and doctors and lawyers and poets, but certainly no engineers and mechanics. Let Yankees adopt such low callings. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Doctors quotes by Jose Saramago
#62. She's dead, said the doctor's wife, and her voice was expressionless, if it were possible for such a voice, as dead as the word it had spoken, to have come from a living mouth. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Doctors quotes by John F. Kennedy
#63. And a revolution of automation finds machines replacing men in the mines and mills of America, without replacing their incomes or their training or their needs to pay the family doctor, grocer and landlord. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Doctors quotes by Andrew Weil
#64. I tried to change the conventional paradigm, for example, by insisting on the reality of mind-body interaction, by stressing the importance of natural therapies, by focusing attention on lifestyle issues, by looking at worthwhile aspects of alternative medicine. Many people have been threatened by that. Doctors especially tend to think that they know everything about the human body, and don't realize that medical education has really omitted many very important subjects. #Quote by Andrew Weil
Doctors quotes by Richard M. Schulze
#65. Doctors said 'go home and enjoy what little is left of your life'. He recovered. #Quote by Richard M. Schulze
Doctors quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#66. The doctors are busy with the repulsive but beneficent work of amputation. You see the sharp, curved knife enter the healthy, white body, you see the wounded man suddenly regain consciousness with a piercing cry and curses, you see the army surgeon fling the amputated arm into a corner, you see another wounded man, lying in a litter in the same apartment, shrink convulsively and groan as he gazes at the operation upon his comrade, not so much from physical pain as from the moral torture of anticipation. - You behold the frightful, soul-stirring scenes; you behold war, not from its conventional, beautiful, and brilliant side, with music and drum-beat, with fluttering flags and galloping generals, but you behold war in its real phase - in blood, in suffering, in death. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Doctors quotes by Mary Brock Jones
#67. He slept still in the induced coma his doctors had kept him in since he arrived. She could see the bruises, see the healing wound of the burn that stretched over his side. She reached out a hand, hovered just above the field and traced the path of the yellow, black and angry red of his healing flesh.
She had done that to him. #Quote by Mary Brock Jones
Doctors quotes by Natalie Portman
#68. I've wanted to be an astronaut, a doctor, a vet - these are things I've said in interviews. Before that, I wanted to be a mermaid and a fairy #Quote by Natalie Portman
Doctors quotes by Julia Roberts
#69. Your face tells a story and it shouldn't be a story about your drive to the doctor's office. #Quote by Julia Roberts
Doctors quotes by Vernon Coleman
#70. Now, if doctors were aware that medicine was not a science and that they were pulling what is undoubtedly the largest and most successful confidence trick ever tried the damage would be fairly minimal. But the problem is compounded by the fact that the vast majority of doctors believe the lie that they are taught; they believe that they are scientists, practising an applied science. #Quote by Vernon Coleman
Doctors quotes by Jennifer Latham
#71. Well, if 'exciting means drama and people dying and doctors and nurses rushing around like in the movies, then no, it wasn't. But if it means doing something that seems small now but can make a big difference in the long run, then it was. #Quote by Jennifer Latham
Doctors quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#72. If a doctor assists you in your suicide, it is called manslaughter, while if a tobacco company does, it is called commerce. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Doctors quotes by Marissa Mayer
#73. I really wanted to be a doctor, until my freshman year of college when I realized that while I was good at chemistry and biology, I really wasn't feeling challenged by it. #Quote by Marissa Mayer
Doctors quotes by Brent Schlender
#74. It was quite a collection of people: Hindus and Buddhists, rockers and doctors, all accomplished, all gathered in the United Church of Christ's Garden of Allah. #Quote by Brent Schlender
Doctors quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#75. As people, we have forgotten to be people. We know how to be doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers, we know what to do, we know what to buy, but how do I just sit with you in your pain? How do I sit with you in your vulnerability and not betray you, not abuse you? We do not know how to do that, even in our homes. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Doctors quotes by Brian Regan
#76. I don't sit down with a goal of writing. I read books or magazines. I watch TV. I go to the doctor. I get on airplanes. I live a normal life and sometimes I'll notice something or read things or experience things. #Quote by Brian Regan
Doctors quotes by Uzo Aduba
#77. My mother is a fighter. After she battled polio and learned to walk again, the doctors told her she would be a cripple her entire life. Instead of accepting defeat, she refused this fate and went on to become the West African Women's Singles tennis champion in college. #Quote by Uzo Aduba
Doctors quotes by Sherry Stringfield
#78. I'm a terrible patient, and I find that doctors can be very condescending. #Quote by Sherry Stringfield
Doctors quotes by Ryan Reynolds
#79. I finally had my prostate checked. And I was super-thankful that I taught my asshole to whistle before the doctor stuck his finger in there. The look on his face was priceless. #Quote by Ryan Reynolds
Doctors quotes by John Wooden
#80. In spite of all that doctors know, and their studies never end, the best cure of all when spirits fall is a kind note from a friend. #Quote by John Wooden
Doctors quotes by Stella Chess
#81. Four- and five-year-olds' play is permeated with the rankest sexism. No matter what their parents do and say, they play their momand pop roles in ultraconventional style. We've seen little girls whose mothers are doctors absolutely refuse to take the doctors' parts in their play, insisting that "only boys can be doctors," against all reason. Girls do more washing and drying of clothes, dishes, and babies than they've ever seen their own mothers do, and they turn their play husbands into TV-watching drones who do nothing but talk about money. #Quote by Stella Chess
Doctors quotes by Mike Bartos
#82. The old joke is that psychiatrists are doctors who can't stand the sight of blood. Maybe they can't stand it, but if they work where I work, they damn well better get used to it.
At least surgeons and prizefighters get to wear gloves #Quote by Mike Bartos
Doctors quotes by Heidi Julavits
#83. To believe you're being psychically attacked gives you an understanding of your illness that no Western doctor can provide; this can be reassuring when you've exhausted the Western doctor tool kit, and the doctors are sending you to acupuncturists for pain relief. #Quote by Heidi Julavits
Doctors quotes by William Hall
#84. Given the central place that technology holds in our lives, it is astonishing that technology companies have not put more resources into fixing this global problem. Advanced computer systems and artificial intelligence (AI) could play a much bigger role in shaping diagnosis and prescription. While the up-front costs of using such technology may be sizeable, the long-term benefits to the health-care system need to be factored into value assessments.
We believe that AI platforms could improve on the empirical prescription approach. Physicians work long hours under stressful conditions and have to keep up to date on the latest medical research. To make this work more manageable, the health-care system encourages doctors to specialize. However, the vast majority of antibiotics are prescribed either by generalists (e.g., general practitioners or emergency physicians) or by specialists in fields other than infectious disease, largely because of the need to treat infections quickly. An AI system can process far more information than a single human, and, even more important, it can remember everything with perfect accuracy. Such a system could theoretically enable a generalist doctor to be as effective as, or even superior to, a specialist at prescribing. The system would guide doctors and patients to different treatment options, assigning each a probability of success based on real-world data. The physician could then consider which treatment was most appropriate. #Quote by William Hall
Doctors quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#85. Disease increases in proportion to the increase in the number of doctors in a place. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Doctors quotes by Richard Di Natale
#86. I've obviously come from a health background. I was a doctor before I became a pollie and one of the things I'd like to do is to really build on the world-class health system we've got. I'm passionate about climate change because it's also a health issue. Things like extreme weather impact on people's health, the ability of our hospitals to cope, the impact on mental health, on farmers in regional areas - they're all serious health concerns. #Quote by Richard Di Natale
Doctors quotes by Pat Conroy
#87. Isn't it a shame military doctors couldn't be as good as military sunglasses? #Quote by Pat Conroy
Doctors quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#88. At any innocent tea-table we may easily hear a man say, "Life is not worth living." We regard it as we regard the statement that it is a fine day; nobody thinks that it can possibly have any serious effect on the man or on the world. And yet if that utterance were really believed, the world would stand on its head. Murderers would be given medals for saving men from life; firemen would be denounced for keeping men from death; poisons would be used as medicines; doctors would be called in when people were well; the Royal Humane Society would be rooted out like a horde of assassins. Yet we never speculate as to whether the conversational pessimist will strengthen or disorganize society; for we are convinced that theories do not matter. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Doctors quotes by Melvin Konner
#89. Intern is not just a gripping tale of becoming a doctor. It's also a courageous critique, a saga of an immigrant family living (at times a little uneasily) the American dream, and even a love story. A great read and a valuable addition to the literature - and I use the word advisedly - of medical training. #Quote by Melvin Konner
Doctors quotes by Rodney Dangerfield
#90. I told my doctor I think my wife has VD. He gave himself a shot of penicillin. #Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
Doctors quotes by David Letterman
#91. When Martha gets out she'll be under house arrest in her big $40 million mansion in Bedford. Boy, that'll teach her. She's only allowed out of the house for doctors visits, grocery shopping, or to dump more stock. #Quote by David Letterman
Doctors quotes by Karl Kraus
#92. One of the most widespread diseases is diagnosis. #Quote by Karl Kraus
Doctors quotes by Sam Levenson
#93. Democracy means doing whatever you want without asking permission of anybody but your boss, your doctor, your lawyer, your landlord, your bank, your city, your state and federal authorities, and your wife and children. #Quote by Sam Levenson
Doctors quotes by Rami Malek
#94. My sister is an ER doctor, and my brother is a teacher. #Quote by Rami Malek
Doctors quotes by William Osler
#95. We doctors have always been a simple trusting folk. Did we not believe Galen implicitly for 1500 years and Hippocrates for more than 2000? #Quote by William Osler
Doctors quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#96. Our civilized world is nothing but a great masquerade. You encounter knights, parsons, soldiers, doctors, lawyers, priests, philosophers and a thousand more: but they are not what they appear - they are merely masks ... Usually, as I say, there is nothing but industrialists, businessmen and speculators concealed behind all these masks. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Doctors quotes by Keshia Knight Pulliam
#97. 'The Cosby Show' - no one thought there's doctors and lawyers who are married and live in brownstones! Back then no one would have thought we would have an African-American president. They would have laughed in your face. #Quote by Keshia Knight Pulliam
Doctors quotes by Mark Hatfield
#98. For the Christian man to reason that God does not want him involved in politics because there are too many evil men in government is as insensitive as for a Christian doctor to turn his back on an epidemic because there are too many germs there. #Quote by Mark Hatfield
Doctors quotes by Finley Peter Dunne
#99. I wonder why you can always read a doctor's bill and you can never read his prescription. #Quote by Finley Peter Dunne
Doctors quotes by Stan Lee
#100. What did Doctor Doom really want? He wanted to rule the world. Now, think about this. You could walk across the street against a traffic light and get a summons for jaywalking, but you could walk up to a police officer and say "I want to rule the world," and there's nothing he can do about it, that is not a crime. Anybody can want to rule the world. So, even though he was the Fantastic Four's greatest menace, in my mind, he was never a criminal! #Quote by Stan Lee
Doctors quotes by Celia Imrie
#101. My mother Diana was a true-blue aristocrat, descended from William the Conqueror and listed in 'Burke's Peerage.' My father David, from a poor Scottish family, was a doctor. #Quote by Celia Imrie
Doctors quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#102. Please don't wait until the doctors tell you that you are going to have a baby to begin to take care of it. It is already there. Whatever you are, whatever you do, your baby will get it. Anything you eat, any worries that are on your mind will be for him or her. Can you tell me that you cannot smile? Think of the baby, and smile for him, for her, for the future generations. Please don't tell me that a smile and your sorrow just don't go together. It's your sorrow, but what about your baby? It's not his sorrow, its not her sorrow. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Doctors quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#103. When trouble is sensed well in advance it can easily be remedied; if you wait for it to show itself any medicine will be too late because the disease will have become incurable. As the doctors say of a wasting disease, to start with it is easy to cure but difficult to diagnose;after a time, unless it has been diagnosed and treated at the outset, it becomes easy to diagnose but difficult to cure. So it is in politics. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Doctors quotes by Unarine Ramaru
#104. Learning from others is primary to your success, even doctors seek advice from specialists. #Quote by Unarine Ramaru
Doctors quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#105. The medical profession (is) a conspiracy to hide its own shortcomings. No doubt the same may be said of all professions. They are all conspiracies against the laity ... (U)ntil there is a practicable alternative to blind trust in the doctor, the truth about the doctor is so terrible that we dare not face it. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Doctors quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#106. He liked fishing and seemed to take pride in being able to like such a stupid occupation. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Doctors quotes by Kin Hubbard
#107. There's another advantage to being poor - a doctor will cure you faster. #Quote by Kin Hubbard
Doctors quotes by Marion Nestle
#108. If you're sick, first you have to associate your sickness with a food. Then you have to report it to your doctor. Then the doctor reports it to some state authority. The state authority reports it to the federal authority. By the time all that happens, two weeks have gone by. #Quote by Marion Nestle
Doctors quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
#109. You know, I look to myself mainly as a creative writer all my life and a medical doctor. #Quote by Nawal El Saadawi
Doctors quotes by Willie Parker
#110. To the point: A woman who wants to terminate her pregnancy has to make her decision in the context of a culture that shames her, and increasingly, within the constraints of laws that dramatically inconvenience her. They demean her humanity by presuming to know better than she does what her best interests are. They limit her access to clinics and doctors and they convey to her false information. The underlying assumption of all the new laws is that women can't be trusted to make their own health decisions; their doctors can't be trusted to tell them the truth; and scientific knowledge must be subverted in the name of religious truth. #Quote by Willie Parker
Doctors quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#111. To the SICK the doctors wisely recommed a change of air and scenery #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Doctors quotes by Harriet Ann Jacobs
#112. Are doctors of divinity blind or are they hypocrites? #Quote by Harriet Ann Jacobs
Doctors quotes by Jonathan Michel Metzl
#113. Mental illness is a real thing. It has real material consequences for people who suffer from it and at the time even the most biological finding reflects social context in very important ways, and so I think psychiatry is better off looking both at biology and at social context and really trying to think of the relationship between these and I think doctors and patients are better off that way. #Quote by Jonathan Michel Metzl
Doctors quotes by Louis Armstrong
#114. Musicians in my day had nicknames. My name was "Satchel Mouth," like a doctor's satchel. When I went to England this fellow was strictly English, and he was editor of the newspaper there. He shook my hand after I got off the train and said, "Hello, Satchmo." So right away my trombone player said, "Mmm, the man thinks you have mo' mouth than Satchel Mouth." So I was stuck with it, and it turned out all right. #Quote by Louis Armstrong
Doctors quotes by Marie Dressler
#115. There are very few persons who would think of inquiring into the private life of the newspaper dealer at the corner, or the druggist, or the doctor, or even a Mah Jong partner, but the moment one belongs to the theatrical profession, the public usually feels cheated unless it knows one's inmost thoughts of love. #Quote by Marie Dressler
Doctors quotes by Ted Cruz
#116. First of all, we have seen now in six years of Obamacare that it has been a disaster. It is the biggest job-killer in this country. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, have been forced into part-time work, have lost their health insurance, have lost their doctors, have seen their premiums skyrocket. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Doctors quotes by Adeline Yen Mah
#117. Alcenith Crawford (a divorced ophthalmologist): We women doctors have un-happy marriages because in our minds we are the superstars of our families. Having survived the hardship of medical school we expect to reap our rewards at home. We had to assert ourselves against all odds and when we finally graduate there are few shrinking violets amongst us. It takes a special man to be able to cope. Men like to feel important and be the undisputed head of the family. A man does not enjoy waiting for his wife while she performs life-saving operations. He expects her and their children to revolve around his needs, not the other way. But we have become accustomed to giving orders in hospitals and having them obeyed. Once home, it's difficult to adjust. Moreover, we often earn more than our husbands. It takes a generous and exceptional man to forgive all that. #Quote by Adeline Yen Mah
Doctors quotes by Holly Bourne
#118. Well, look at the other characters in Winnie the Pooh. They all actually demonstrate that Pooh is the most mentally balanced. There's Tigger, I mean, that tiger just can't stay in the moment and enjoy it. He's too much of a hedonist; he always wants the next adventure. That's not healthy, he'll burn out." I started properly laughing. "And what about Eeyore?" "Well he's a depressive, isn't he? If Eeyore walked into my doctor's office he'd be prescribed with a lifetime supply of antidepressants. And not just because US doctors dole them out like candy canes at Christmas." The music stopped and I found myself clapping without even looking. "But Pooh?" "Pooh lives in the moment. He doesn't fret about the past, or freak about the future. He's an expert at mindfulness." Kyle #Quote by Holly Bourne
Doctors quotes by Noam Chomsky
#119. In my own professional work I have touched on a variety of different fields. I've done work in mathematical linguistics, for example, without any professional credentials in mathematics; in this subject I am completely self-taught, and not very well taught. But I've often been invited by universities to speak on mathematical linguistics at mathematics seminars and colloquia. No one has ever asked me whether I have the appropriate credentials to speak on these subjects; the mathematicians couldn't care less. What they want to know is what I have to say. No one has ever objected to my right to speak, asking whether I have a doctor's degree in mathematics, or whether I have taken advanced courses in the subject. That would never have entered their minds. They want to know whether I am right or wrong, whether the subject is interesting or not, whether better approaches are possible… the discussion dealt with the subject, not with my right to discuss it.
But on the other hand, in discussion or debate concerning social issues or American foreign policy…. The issue is constantly raised, often with considerable venom. I've repeatedly been challenged on grounds of credentials, or asked, what special training do I have that entitles you to speak on these matters. The assumption is that people like me, who are outsiders from a professional viewpoint, are not entitled to speak on such things.
Compare mathematics and the political sciences… it's quite striking. In mathematics, #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Doctors quotes by George Mallory
#120. For the stone from the top for geologists, the knowledge of the limits of endurance for the doctors, but above all for the spirit of adventure to keep alive the soul of man. #Quote by George Mallory
Doctors quotes by Oliver Sacks
#121. There is among doctors, in acute hospitals at least, a presumption of stupidity in their patients. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Doctors quotes by Tig Notaro
#122. 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
Doctors quotes by Samuel Hopkins Adams
#123. Printer's ink, when it spells out a doctor's promise to cure, is one of the subtlest and most dangerous of poisons. #Quote by Samuel Hopkins Adams
Doctors quotes by Meg Cabot
#124. Look, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking I said no because the whole thing would just be too
Dirty Dancing , right? Summer fling at the resort, only with the roles reversed: you know, the poor
working girl and the rich doctor's son, nobody puts Baby in the corner, blah blah blah. That kind of thing. #Quote by Meg Cabot
Doctors quotes by Barack Obama
#125. If you have health insurance, then you don't have to do anything. If you've got health insurance through your employer, you can keep your health insurance, keep your choice of doctor, keep your plan. #Quote by Barack Obama
Doctors quotes by Antonio Tripodoro
#126. Remember that in pursuing medicine you have assumed responsibility for a sublime mission. Persever, with God in your heart, with the teachings of your father and your mother always in your memory, with love and devotion for the abandoned, with faith and enthusiasm, deaf to praises and criticisms, steadfast against envy, and inclined only to do good. (St. Joseph Moscati to a young doctor, p. 140) #Quote by Antonio Tripodoro
Doctors quotes by Malala Yousafzai
#127. Perhaps that's because I do not remember a thing about the shooting. Not a single thing. The doctors and nurses offered complicated explanations for why I didn't recall the attack. They said the brain protects us from memories that are too painful to remember. Or, they said, my brain might have shut down as soon as I was injured. I love science, and I love nothing more than asking question upon question to figure out the way things work. But I don't need science to figure out why I don't remember the attack. I know why: God is kind to me. #Quote by Malala Yousafzai
Doctors quotes by Billy Eckstine
#128. If you want to be a doctor, a lawyer you must go to college. But if you want to be a musician or such, study your craft. Study music. #Quote by Billy Eckstine
Doctors quotes by Ehud Olmert
#129. My doctors say I am very healthy. #Quote by Ehud Olmert
Doctors quotes by John Cleese
#130. It's a plastic surgeon you need, not a doctor #Quote by John Cleese
Doctors quotes by Jeff Sessions
#131. All the kids that I grew up with, in an almost idyllic environment - I've got to tell you, it was so wonderful - they've gone on and they're doctors and Ph.D.'s and everybody has a four-year college degree. None of our parents, I think, had a four-year degree. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Doctors quotes by Aldo Leopold
#132. Every region should retain representative samples of its original or wilderness condition, to serve science as a sample of normality. Just as doctors must study healthy people to understand disease, so must the land sciences study the wilderness to understand disorders of the land-mechanism. #Quote by Aldo Leopold
Doctors quotes by Herbie Brennan
#133. If your doctor has warned you to avoid excitement, do not turn to exploring your past lives as a soothing and sedentary occupation ... #Quote by Herbie Brennan
Doctors quotes by Henry Marsh
#134. Few people outside medicine realize that what tortures doctors most is uncertainty, rather than the fact they often deal with people who are suffering or who are about to die. It is easy enough to let somebody die if one knows beyond doubt that they cannot be saved - if one is a decent doctor one will be sympathetic, but the situation is clear. This is life, and we all have to die sooner or later. It is when I do not know for certain whether I can help or not, or should help or not, that things become so difficult. #Quote by Henry Marsh
Doctors quotes by Sophia Bush
#135. Acting has been my passion from the minute I started. I was pretty young when I wanted to be a doctor, but when I started doing theater work as a freshman in high school, the first time I hit the stage I was like, If I can do this every day, life won't get any better! #Quote by Sophia Bush
Doctors quotes by Clive Owen
#136. The medical operations are so challenging because they're so technical, as well. I assumed before we started that we would do the classic thing, when it comes to the operations, that we would do all of these inserts with real doctors. #Quote by Clive Owen
Doctors quotes by Edward V. Long
#137. I think every doctor should know the shocking state of affairs ... We discovered they (the FDA) failed to effectively regulate the large manufacturers and powerful interests while recklessly persecuting the small manufacturers ... (The FDA is) harassing (small) manufacturers and doctors ... (and) betrays the public trust. #Quote by Edward V. Long
Doctors quotes by Emma Chase
#138. Avoid doctors like the bubonic plague. On some level I know it's ignorant, but I think the stress of knowing you have a fatal disease kills faster than the disease itself. #Quote by Emma Chase
Doctors quotes by George Eliot
#139. Mrs. Renfrew, the colonel's widow, was not only unexceptionable in point of breeding, but also interesting on the ground of her complaint, which puzzled the doctors, and seemed clearly a case wherein the fulness of professional knowledge might need the supplement of quackery. #Quote by George Eliot
Doctors quotes by J.G. Ballard
#140. I guessed that he was one of those ambitious young physicians who more and more fill the profession, opportunists with a fashionable hoodlum image, openly hostile to their patients. My brief stay at the hospital had already convinced me that the medical profession was an open door to anyone nursing a grudge against the human race. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Doctors quotes by Robertson Davies
#141. Men have this climacteric, you know, like women. Doctors deny it, but I have met some very menopausal persons in their profession. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Doctors quotes by Toni Morrison
#142. What was taken by outsiders to be slackness, slovenliness or even generosity was in fact a full recognition of the legitimacy of forces other than good ones. They did not believe doctors could heal
for them, none ever had done so. They did not believe death was accidental
life might be, but death was deliberate. They did not believe Nature was ever askew
only inconvenient. Plague and drought were as 'natural' as springtime. If milk could curdle, God knows robins could fall. The purpose of evil was to survive it and they determined (without ever knowing they had made up their minds to do it) to survive floods, white people, tuberculosis, famine and ignorance. They knew anger well but not despair, and they didn't stone sinners for the same reason they didn't commit suicide
it was beneath them. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Doctors quotes by Vivian Gornick
#143. Women occupy, in great masses, the 'household tasks' of industry. They are nurses but not doctors, secretaries but not executives, researchers but not writers, workers but not managers, bookkeepers but not promoters. #Quote by Vivian Gornick
Doctors quotes by Warren E. Burger
#144. Doctors still retain a high degree of public confidence because they are perceived as healers. Should lawyers not be healers? Healers, not warriors? Healers, not procurers? Healers, not hired guns? #Quote by Warren E. Burger
Doctors quotes by Dan Quayle
#145. Lookit, I've done it their way this far and now it's my turn. I'm my own handler. Any questions? Ask me ... There's not going to be any more handler stories because I'm the handler ... I'm Doctor Spin. #Quote by Dan Quayle
Doctors quotes by Irwin Stone
#146. All patients reported a loss of craving for drugs while taking large doses of Vitamin C, during detoxification. Of the first 30 carefully monitored heroin addicts, 30 successfully withdrew from their addiction with no more than minor discomfort. None of the 30 were reported to have relapsed ... Similar results have been reported by other doctors ... :Archie Kalokerinos ... #Quote by Irwin Stone
Doctors quotes by Anton Chekhov
#147. Those who take an official, business-like attitude towards other people's suffering, like judges, policemen, doctors, from force of habit, as time goes by, become callous to such a degree that they would be unable to treat their clients otherwise than formally even if they wanted to; in this respect they are no different from the peasant who slaughters sheep and calves in his backyard without noticing the blood. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Doctors quotes by Lindsay Wagner
#148. If I was not an actress, I would be a homeopathic doctor. #Quote by Lindsay Wagner
Doctors quotes by Cate Tiernan
#149. Sorry." he said, rubbing his temples. "Do you have any Tylenol?"
"Nope, sorry. Your doctor's appointment is today right?"
"Here take this." Jenna rummaged in her purse and took out two tablets.
Robbie squinted at them, then tossed them down with the rest of his soda. "What was that?"
"Cyanide." said Sharon, and we laughed.
"Actually, it was Midol." Jenna said.
Matt whooped with laughter as Robbie gaped at her in dismay.
"It'll really help." Jenna insisted. "It's what I take for my headaches."
"Oh man." Robbie shook his head. I was almost doubled over with laughter.
"Look at it this way," said Cal brightly. "You won't get that awful bloated feeling."
"You'll feel pretty all day." suggested Matt, laughing so hard, he had to wipe his eyes. #Quote by Cate Tiernan
Doctors quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#150. An intense temperament has convinced me to teach not only from books but from what I have learned from experience. So I try to impress upon young doctors and graduate students that tumultuousness, if coupled to discipline and a cool mind, is not such a bad sort of thing. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Doctors quotes by Martin J. Blaser
#151. We think that cutting routine office visits to twenty minutes, fifteen minutes, even ten minutes will save money when in fact, with less time for doctors to examine and less time to think, we are incurring far greater costs through excessive testing and needless treatment. #Quote by Martin J. Blaser
Doctors quotes by Robert S. Mendelsohn
#152. Mothers, Grandmothers, and Mother Nature are the best doctors around. #Quote by Robert S. Mendelsohn
Doctors quotes by Andrew Pyper
#153. What's the problem? In a nutshell?"

Doctors quotes by Steven Moffat
#154. The Doctor: Doctor Song, you've got that face on again.
River: What face?
The Doctor: The "He's hot when he's clever" face.
River: This is my normal face.
The Doctor: Yes it is.
River: Oh, shut up.
The Doctor: Not a chance. #Quote by Steven Moffat
Doctors quotes by Anne Rice
#155. But even those people, cops, lawyers, doctors, learned what they learned from the aftermath. They weren't there when the killer tore at his victim; they didn't smell the scent of evil; they didn't hear the cries to heaven for something, someone, to intervene. #Quote by Anne Rice
Doctors quotes by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
#156. Open the "book of life" and you will see a "text" of about 3 billion letters, filling about 10,000 copies of the new York Times Sunday edition. Each line looks something like this:
These letters, abbreviations of the molecules making up the DNA, could easily mean that the anonymous donor whose genome has been sequenced will be bald by the age of fifty. Or they could reveal that he will develop Alzheimer's disease by seventy. We are repeatedly told that everything from our personality to future medical history is encoded in this book. Can you read it? I doubt it. Let me share a secret with you: Neither can biologists or doctors. #Quote by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
Doctors quotes by Cecile Richards
#157. At Planned Parenthood, we see the impact of abortion stigma firsthand, in the women who delay getting reproductive health care because they fear they'll be labeled and judged. We see the effect of stigma on doctors, health center staffers, and others who help provide abortion services. And we see the impact in laws that regulate and restrict abortion in ways that would never happen with any other medical procedure. #Quote by Cecile Richards
Doctors quotes by John Grisham
#158. There had been so many. He had hired young ones because they were more plentiful and worked cheaper. The better of those got married and pregnant and wanted six months off. The bad ones flirted, wore tight miniskirts, and made suggestive comments. He had hired more mature women to negate any physical temptation, but, as a rule, they had been bossy, maternal, menopausal, and they had more doctors' appointments, as well as aches and pains to talk about and funerals to attend. #Quote by John Grisham
Doctors quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#159. Gentlemen ... Do you not see that so long as society says a woman is incompetent to be a lawyer, minister or doctor, but has ample ability to be a teacher, that every man of you who chooses this profession tacitly acknowledges that he has no more brains than a woman? #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Doctors quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#160. Taking all the round of professions and occupations, you will find that every man is the worse for being poor; and the doctor is a specially dangerous man when poor. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Doctors quotes by Atul Gawande
#161. Most people are squeamish about saying how much they earn, but in medicine the situation seems especially fraught. Doctors aren't supposed to be in it for the money, and the more concerned a doctor seems to be about making money the more suspicious people become about the care being provided. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Doctors quotes by Cybill Shepherd
#162. And if doctor says that you don't have IBS with constipation, you might want to get a second opinion, because I had doctors that were telling me ... of course, a lot of this has to do with science - progressing. #Quote by Cybill Shepherd
Doctors quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#163. She is a walking weapon in society, is what the teachers said. We've never seen anything like it, is what the doctors said. She should be removed from your home, is what the police officers said.
No problem at all, is what my parents said. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Doctors quotes by Percival Everett
#164. Everybody should read fiction ... I don't think serious fiction is written for a few people. I think we live in a stupid culture that won't educate its people to read these things. It would be a much more interesting place if it would. And it's not just that mechanics and plumbers don't read literary fiction, it's that doctors and lawyers don't read literary fiction. It has nothing to do with class, it has to do with an anti-intellectual culture that doesn't trust art. #Quote by Percival Everett
Doctors quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#165. Every doctor will allow a colleague to decimate a whole countryside sooner than violate the bond of professional etiquette by giving him away. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Doctors quotes by Rodney Dangerfield
#166. With my doctor, I don't get no respect. I told him I want a vasectomy. He said with a face like mine, I don't need one. #Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
Doctors quotes by Hemant Mehta
#167. Radical Muslims fly planes into buildings. Radical Christians kill abortion doctors. Radical Atheists write books. #Quote by Hemant Mehta
Doctors quotes by Victoria Gotti
#168. 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
Doctors quotes by Jimmy Carter
#169. I think doctors care very deeply about their patients, but when they organize into the AMA, their responsibility is to the welfare of doctors, and quite often, these lobbying groups are the only ones that are heard in the state capitols and in the capitol of our country. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Doctors quotes by Jacques Derrida
#170. No one can deny seriously any more, or for very long, that men do all they can in order to dissimulate this cruelty or to hide it from themselves; in order to organize on a global scale the forgetting or misunderstanding of this violence, which some would compare to the worst cases of genocide (there are also animal genocides: the number of species endangered because of man takes one's breath away). One should neither abuse the figure of genocide nor too quickly consider it explained away. It gets more complicated: the annihilation of certain species is indeed in process, but it is occurring through the organization and exploitation of an artificial, infernal, virtually interminable survival, in conditions that previous generations would have judged monstrous, outside of every presumed norm of a life proper to animals that are thus exterminated by means of the continued existence or even their overpopulation. As if, for example, instead of throwing a people into ovens and gas chambers (let's say Nazi) doctors and geneticists had decided to organize the overproduction and overgeneration of Jews, gypsies, and homosexuals by means of artificial insemination, so that, being continually more numerous and better fed, they could be destined in always increasing numbers for the same hell, that of the imposition of genetic experimentation, or extermination by gas or by fire. #Quote by Jacques Derrida
Doctors quotes by Steven Spielberg
#171. The world would be a poorer place without Doctor Who. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Doctors quotes by Jacqueline Rayner
#172. Husband and I are preparing ourselves for the new Doctor by watching - well, mainly rewatching - Mr. Capaldi's back catalogue, we've just finished The Crow Road in which he is utterly drop-dead gorgeous and actually I'd better stop there as husband is probably reading this so just let me point out that of course I'm only excited about upcoming Doctor Who because of the stories and it's definitely not because I fancy the new Doctor. #Quote by Jacqueline Rayner
Doctors quotes by Jeremy Irons
#173. I envy children who know that they're going to become doctors, know they're going to go into the forces or whatever. I think choice is one of the hardest things, but that's what I try to give my children, to say you can do anything. #Quote by Jeremy Irons
Doctors quotes by Terry Gross
#174. I think there's always an expectation when you're a first generation, especially a first-generation Nigerian, of sort of being a doctor or a lawyer or an engineer. And so, you know, sort of my initial pursuits into the arts and that I was going to pursue film as a career didn't confuse them, but it was definitely something that they were scared about. #Quote by Terry Gross
Doctors quotes by Rose Macaulay
#175. He felt about books as doctors feel about medicines, or managers about plays
cynical but hopeful. #Quote by Rose Macaulay
Doctors quotes by Fwah Storm
#176. 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 when I saw the chance to make a difference, I was determined to get it right! #Quote by Fwah Storm
Doctors quotes by Polly Toynbee
#177. My mother begged doctors to end her life. She was beyond the physical ability to swallow enough of the weak morphine pills she had around her. When she knew she was dying I promised to make sure she could go at a time of her choosing, but it was impossible. I couldn't help. #Quote by Polly Toynbee
Doctors quotes by Ken Follett
#178. Fitz must not know in advance, for he would try to stop her. He might simply lock her in her room. He could even get her committed to a lunatic asylum. A wealthy upper-class man could have a female relative put away without much difficulty. All Fitz would have to do was to find two doctors willing to agree with him that she must be mad to want to marry a German. #Quote by Ken Follett
Doctors quotes by Philip Roth
#179. Dreams? If only they had been! But I don't need dreams, Doctor, that's why I hardly have them - because I have this life instead. With me it all happens in broad daylight! #Quote by Philip Roth
Doctors quotes by Atul Gawande
#180. Equally worrying, and far less recognized, medicine has been slow to confront the very changes that it has been responsible for - or to apply the knowledge we have about how to make old age better. Although the elderly population is growing rapidly, the number of certified geriatricians the medical profession has put in practice has actually fallen in the United States by 25 percent between 1996 and 2010. Applications to training programs in adult primary care medicine have plummeted, while fields like plastic surgery and radiology receive applications in record numbers. Partly, this has to do with money - incomes in geriatrics and adult primary care are among the lowest in medicine. And partly, whether we admit it or not, a lot of doctors don't like taking care of the elderly. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Doctors quotes by Andrew Taylor Still
#181. To find health should be the object of the doctor. Any one can find disease. #Quote by Andrew Taylor Still
Doctors quotes by Sam Kean
#182. Despite the disreputable company it keeps, bismuth is harmless. In fact, it's medicinal: Doctors prescribe it to soothe ulcers, and it's the 'bis' in hot-pink Pepto-Bismol. Overall, it seems like the most out-of-place element on the periodic table, a gentleman among scoundrels. #Quote by Sam Kean
Doctors quotes by Ina May Gaskin
#183. The problem is that doctors today often assume that something mysterious and unidentified has gone wrong with labor or that the woman's body is somehow "inadequate" - what I call the "woman's body as a lemon" assumption. For a variety of reasons, a lot of women have also come to believe that nature made a serious mistake with their bodies. This belief has become so strong in many that they give in to pharmaceutical or surgical treatments when patience and recognition of the normality and harmlessness of the situation would make for better health for them and their babies and less surgery and technological intervention in birth. Most women need encouragement and companionship more than they need drugs. #Quote by Ina May Gaskin
Doctors quotes by Terrell Owens
#184. Like I have said all along, I have the best doctor of all, and that is God. You can't argue with a guy like that. #Quote by Terrell Owens
Doctors quotes by James Goss
#185. How are you, Rory?' [the Doctor] asked.
I [Rory] ... answered him. 'It's been odd being you.'
'Isn't it?' The Doctor's smile didn't quite reach his eyes.
'How do you cope?'
'Ah ... ' The Doctor picked away at a scrap of loose paint on the door. 'Well, I just get as close as I can to a happy ending, then I shut the door behind me and move on.'
I nodded.
We shut the door behind us and moved on. #Quote by James Goss
Doctors quotes by Lacey Sturm
#186. We should teach our kids that they're blessing and not a burden and that they're valuable beyond what they can imagine - in God's eyes, in the world's eyes - that they're purpose is so important to fulfill and it's gonna make a difference in the world. And they're the only ones that can make the difference that they can make, in the way that they can make it. That's why we all have different fingerprints. And I feel like the message is not clear enough. It's not clear because they go to school and they get challenged and they're bombarded with the idea that abortion is okay, that we can just go ahead and, you know, if we're not ready to have a kid we can just take care of that problem. But kids are not a problem, they're not a mistake, they're not a burden. They're blessing from God and that's what we don't understand. My mom was sixteen when she had me and we both almost died, I was a second kid, she had my brother when she was fifteen. And we both almost died and the doctors told her to abort me and I think that a lot of people gave her that advice. So when I grew up I think I had a sense of being a burden. And I think a lot of kids actually have that sense. #Quote by Lacey Sturm
Doctors quotes by Benjamin Carson
#187. Occasionally I talk with people who see doctors as people who do nothing but give of themselves and never receive from anyone else - especially not from their patients. That is totally
false. The longer I remain in my profession, the more I realize how much I receive from those who come to me for help. #Quote by Benjamin Carson
Doctors quotes by Jochen Zeitz
#188. I was actually accepted into medical school in Italy. But then I wanted to come back and learn medicine in Germany. And while waiting, I decided to join a business school. I figured it would be useful for doctors to know some business as well! #Quote by Jochen Zeitz
Doctors quotes by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
#189. The number one reason knitters knit is because they are so smart that they need knitting to make boring things interesting. Knitters are so compellingly clever that they simply can't tolerate boredom. It takes more to engage and entertain this kind of human, and they need an outlet or they get into trouble.
... knitters just can't watch TV without doing something else. Knitters just can't wait in line, knitters just can't sit waiting at the doctor's office. Knitters need knitting to add a layer of interest in other, less constructive ways. #Quote by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Doctors quotes by Robert Fulghum
#190. You will continue to read stories of crookedness and corruption - of policemen who lie and steal, doctors who reap where they do not sew, politicians on the take. Don't be misled. They are news because they are the exceptions. #Quote by Robert Fulghum

Doctors quotes by Don Alias
#192. Mom did not want me to have anything to do with playing music. Being from a middle-class Black family in that particular era, everybody wanted you to have a profession

Doctors quotes by Ally Carter
#197. She thought she kept seeing him because she wanted to see him," Macey explained.

Doctors quotes by Hermann Hesse
#200. Perhaps I was mad, as I thought at moments; perhaps I was not like other men? But I was able to do the same things the others did; with a little effort and industry I could read Plato, was able to solve problems in trigonometry or follow a chemical analysis. These was only one thing I could not do: wrest the dark secret goal from myself and keep it before me as others did who knew exactly what they wanted to be- professors, lawyers, doctors, artists, however long this would take them and whatever difficulties and advantages this decision would bear in its wake. This I could not do. Perhaps I would become something similar but how was I to know? Perhaps I would have to continue my search for years on end and would not become anything, and would not reach a goal. Perhaps I would reach this goal but it would turn out to be an evil, dangerous, horrible one? #Quote by Hermann Hesse
