Marliere Hospice quotes by Lisa J. Shultz
#1. When I reflect on the stories of death supported by hospice care and contrast it with our story depicting an absence of support, I find myself dealing with envy and anger. I have channeled those emotions into this book with the hope that hearing our story might give someone else a chance to create a better ending to the life of a loved one. #Quote by Lisa J. Shultz
Marliere Hospice quotes by Robert L. Wise
#2. If we listen and observe carefully the dying can teach us important things that we need to learn in preparing for the end of our own life's journey. #Quote by Robert L. Wise
Marliere Hospice quotes by Atul Gawande
#3. A nurse has five seconds to make a patient like you and trust you. It's in the whole way you present yourself. I do not come in saying, 'I'm so sorry.' Instead, it's: 'I'm the hospice nurse, and here's what I have to offer you to make your life better. And I know we don't have a lot of time to waste. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Marliere Hospice quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#4. I used to work as a volunteer in a hospice, but I don't have any nursing skills or cooking skills or anything, so I was what they call an escort. I would take people to the support groups every night, and I would have to sit sort of on the sidelines so I could take them back to hospice at the end of the meeting. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Marliere Hospice quotes by Ann McLane Kuster
#5. From routine hospital visits and prescription drugs, to emergencies and hospice care, Medicare covers the full range of health services that our nation's seniors rely on every single day. #Quote by Ann McLane Kuster
Marliere Hospice quotes by Brent Green
#6. I felt great empathy for my friend, as one form of cancer after another emerged to challenge him. I felt sympathy for his suffering that surely clawed at his daily routines, always active and busy, but he rarely verbalized complaints while courageously challenging his archenemy. He met pain and physical decline with 600-calorie workouts; he discarded anxieties somewhere along innumerable running trails; he faced death by running through life at full stride. #Quote by Brent Green
Marliere Hospice quotes by Erykah Badu
#7. My work as a doula also extends all the way to the end of life. I sit at the bedsides of people who are passing on in hospices or nursing homes, for the people and families who want that kind of thing. #Quote by Erykah Badu
Marliere Hospice quotes by Christine Cowgill
#8. Death should not be viewed as a medical failure but as a natural conclusion to life. #Quote by Christine Cowgill
Marliere Hospice quotes by Joe Niemczura
#9. To transport this way along bouncy mountain roads is not the way to die. Every woman deserves the simple dignity of dying in a bed with clean sheets and an electric light at hand. They wanted me to participate in a horrible abomination. I simply will not countenance the lack of respect for the poor mother of those boys. Imagine how she would feel if she woke up and saw her sons piled at her side.
-spoken by Sara to Matt regarding a victim of Amanita Phalloides [poisoning #Quote by Joe Niemczura
Marliere Hospice quotes by Meredith Monk
#10. My partner sometimes liked to go into the studio and improvise voice things just for fun. When I returned from England I transcribed one of her melodies, and had some of the hospice participants sing it, because they said they liked to sing. Their singing is very raw, but I'm going to use it for the final work. #Quote by Meredith Monk
Marliere Hospice quotes by Brent Green
#11. My encounter with desperation while witnessing the death of a precious child changed me, teaching me that although we will have sad times, we can move on, chastened and changed but resilient and hopeful. Laurel showed me one way to live with hope as well as cancer as she thrived even when tumors grew within her small body. She exhibited how a child can push aside despair and appreciate as many moments as possible, to believe in the power of resurrection, both the human spirit and in a Biblical sense. #Quote by Brent Green
Marliere Hospice quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#12. I saw the apartment almost as a sanatorium, a hospice clinic for my own recovery. I painted the walls in the warmest colors I could find and bought myself flowers every week, as if I were visiting myself in the hospital. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Marliere Hospice quotes by Christopher Moore
#13. Another hospice worker - another of the amazing women that Charlie had seen in the homes of the dying, helping to deliver them into the next world with as much comfort and dignity and even joy as they could gather - benevolent Valkyries, midwives of the final light, they were - and as Charlie watched them at work, he saw that rather than become detached from, or callous to their job, they became involved with every patient and every family. They were present. He'd seen them grieve with a hundred different families, taking part in an intensity of emotion that most people would feel only a few times in their lives. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Marliere Hospice quotes by Molly Friedenfeld
#14. The kindness sent from one compassionate soul to another during the time of loss of one held so dear allows the sorrow-filled heart to open wide, filling the space of emptiness that grief may have created with a renewed sense of peace, compassion, and love. #Quote by Molly Friedenfeld
Marliere Hospice quotes by Debee Sue
#15. If your Doctor cannot prove they are the Creator, what right do they have to give you an expiration date? None fight for your right to live. Been on hospice almost 16 years now. No 'man' has any right to say you have less then 6 months to live, no matter what the pages on the wall say. Fight its your right. #Quote by Debee Sue
Marliere Hospice quotes by Molly Friedenfeld
#16. Spending moments with another in earnest presence is one of the simple ways we can show unconditional love. It is the memories created from these impressions that survive after all else passes. #Quote by Molly Friedenfeld
Marliere Hospice quotes by Abby Osman
#17. I just finished reading it [Tanner's Grief] and found it showed many sides of grief...often never talked about. Shared it with two friends has a friend that has been grieving many losses but too busy to stop and feel it. Personally I have believed unresolved grief is what's behind all of the anger, mass killings, hate etc.. So many are crying out but not allowing themselves to really cry through the inner pain and anguish as we are created to do as humans. I have seen this working with kids in schools...with hospice patients as chaplain, in spiritual direction one-on-one and pastoring a church. This is the first novelook I have ever read Abby that deals with grief
in a way that can help those reading it have hope they can do this...and not believe they have to do it alone or with those in their family or friends. Getting the help they need isn't being unfaithful to anyone.

--A Retired Minister #Quote by Abby Osman
Marliere Hospice quotes by Art Buchwald
#18. So far things are going my way. I am known in the hospice as The Man Who Wouldn't Die. I don't know if this is true or not, but I think some people, not many, are starting to wonder why I'm still around. #Quote by Art Buchwald
Marliere Hospice quotes by Joe Niemczura
#19. Every woman deserves the simple dignity of dying in a bed with clean sheets and an electric light at hand.'
-spoken by Sara, the missionary doctor, during a moment of indignation. #Quote by Joe Niemczura
Marliere Hospice quotes by Atul Gawande
#20. The evidence is that people who enter hospice don't have shorter lives. In many cases they are longer. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Marliere Hospice quotes by Roz Chast
#21. My father was in terrible pain towards the end because of his bed sores, and he did go into hospice, and I think that was better in some ways. You know, I think his death was peaceful, and it was all right. He was just in terrible pain. #Quote by Roz Chast
Marliere Hospice quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#22. The bullet hit Lady right between her eyes, in the middle of her white star, exactly where we hoped it would. She bolted so hard her leather halter snapped into pieces and fell away from her face, and then she stood unmoving, looking at us with a stunned expression.
"Shoot her again," I gasped, and immediately Leif did, firing three more bullets into her head in quick succession. She stumbled and jerked, but she didn't fall and she didn't run, though she was no longer tied to the tree. Her eyes were wild upon us, shocked by what we'd done, her face a constellation of bloodless holes. In an instant I knew we'd done the wrong thing, not in killing her, but in thinking that we should be the ones to do it. I should have insisted Eddie do this one thing, or paid for the veterinarian to come out. I'd had the wrong idea of what it takes to kill an animal. There is no such thing as one clean shot. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
Marliere Hospice quotes by Deb Olin Unferth
#23. Howard's enchanting Hospice obeys its own magical inner logic with excellent prose and a sadness that will split open hearts. You have in your hands a story that is inquisitive, gripping, and triumphant. #Quote by Deb Olin Unferth
Marliere Hospice quotes by Robbie Fowler
#24. I do a fair bit for children's charities. The big ones I support in Liverpool are Zoe's Place Baby Hospice, and Claire House Children's Hospice. I donate money and time but the time is what they value the most. If my inclusion at any event they're doing, helps them to raise more money, then of course I'll be there. #Quote by Robbie Fowler
Marliere Hospice quotes by Rachel Joyce
#25. Queenie Hennessy - "I am here to die."
Sister Mary Inconnue - "Pardon me but you are here to live until you die. There is a significant difference. #Quote by Rachel Joyce
Marliere Hospice quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#26. It hadn't occurred to me that my mother would die. Until she was dying, the thought had never entered my mind. She was monolithic and insurmountable, the keeper of my life. She would grow old and still work in the garden. This image was fixed in my mind, like one of the memories from her childhood that I made her explain so intricately that I remembered it as if it were mine. She would be old and beautiful like the black-and-white photo of Georgia O'Keeffe I'd once sent her. I held fast to this image for the first couple of weeks after we left the Mayo Clinic, and then, once she was admitted to the hospice wing of the hospital in Duluth, that image unfurled, gave way to the others, more modest and true. I imagined my mother in October; I wrote the scene in my mind. And then the one of my mother in August and another in May. Each day that passed, another month peeled away. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
Marliere Hospice quotes by Robert Martensen
#27. There is one essential requirement for being close with a dying person: the letting go of self-concern. #Quote by Robert Martensen
Marliere Hospice quotes by Eleanor Brownn
#28. Never take life for granted. Savor every sunrise, because no one is promised tomorrow…or even the rest of today. #Quote by Eleanor Brownn
Marliere Hospice quotes by Alissa Nutting
#29. Maybe lifelike mannequins were the way to go in terms of hospice. They could be tailor-made for this purpose - Diane's full breasts could lactate morphine, for example. #Quote by Alissa Nutting
Marliere Hospice quotes by Ron Wyden
#30. I've written and passed laws to give Medicare beneficiaries access to life saving cancer drugs and to ensure that seniors don't have to give up the prospect of a cure when they go into hospice care. #Quote by Ron Wyden
Marliere Hospice quotes by Robert L. Wise
#31. Istening means learning to hear someone's inner world and deepest feelings with far greater attention in order that we don't let our own assumptions get in the way. The dying may speak in images far more akin to dreamland than the world of everyday reality. In order to understand them we have to make adjustments to comprehend a poetic form of expression that is sometimes elusive but actually far more expressive than the world of facts. #Quote by Robert L. Wise
Marliere Hospice quotes by Joan N. Berzoff

Marliere Hospice quotes by Jill Alexander Essbaum
#33. Grief. The first is anticipatory. This is hospice grief. Prognostic grief. This is the grief that comes when you drive your dog to the vet for the very last time. This is the death row inmate's family's grief. See that pain in the distance? It's on its way. This is the grief that it is somewhat possible to prepare for. You finish all business. You come to terms. Goodbyes are said and said again. Anguish stalks the chambers of your heart and you steel yourself for the impending presence of an everlasting absence. This grief is an instrument of torture. It squeezes and pulls and presses down. Grief that follows an immediate loss comes on like a stab wound. This is the second kind of grief. It is a cutting pain and it is always a surprise. You never see it coming. It is a grief that can't be #Quote by Jill Alexander Essbaum
Marliere Hospice quotes by Eleanor Clift
#34. Hospice means end-of-life care. The admission ticket is a diagnosis from a doctor that you have six months or less to live. #Quote by Eleanor Clift
Marliere Hospice quotes by Rachel Joyce
#35. All these years I thought a piece of my life was missing. But it was there all along. It was there when I sat beside you in your car and you began to drive. It was there when I sang backwards and you laughed or I made a picnic and you ate every crumb. It was there when you told me you liked my brown suit, when you opened the door for me, when you asked once if I would like to take the long road home. It came later in my garden. When I looked at the sun and saw it glow on my hands. When a rosebud appeared where there had not been one before. It was in the people who stopped and talked of this and that over the garden wall. And just when I thought my life was done, it came time and time again at the hospice. It has been everywhere, my happiness – when my mother sang for me to dance, when my father took my hand to keep me safe – but it was such a small, plain thing that I mistook it for something ordinary and failed to see. We expect our happiness to come with a sign and bells, but it doesn't. #Quote by Rachel Joyce
Marliere Hospice quotes by Harmon Killebrew
#36. Hospice is such a tremendous thing. Patients seem to reach an inner peace. #Quote by Harmon Killebrew
Marliere Hospice quotes by Tom Rachman
#37. Xavi never did see the end of the Iraq War; he died at the peak of the pandemonium there, though he'd stopped caring, having receded from the world in stages: aware of just the hospice, then just his room, then his bed, then his body, then nothing. #Quote by Tom Rachman
Marliere Hospice quotes by Elizabeth Alexander
#38. My mother-in-law's last night on earth, a fox crossed our path in Branford, Connecticut, as we left the hospice. We knew somehow that it was her, as I now know the ravenous hawk came to take Ficre. Do I believe that? Yes, I do. Poetic logic is my logic. I do not believe she was a fox. But I believe the fox was a harbinger. I believe that it was a strange enough occurrence that it should be heeded. Zememesh Berhe, the quick, red fox, soon passed from this life to the next. #Quote by Elizabeth Alexander
Marliere Hospice quotes by Alexandra Robbins
#39. California nurse Jared Axen was holding a dying hospice patient's hand when he began to sing an old hymn. The woman, who didn't speak English, hadn't been responsive in days. But when Axen sang to her, she squeezed his hand, a response that soothed the woman's family. Six years later, Axen, a classically trained musician, sings to some of his patients every day. "It gives them their humanity back," he said. "Music is a common language that helps me connect with my patients." Many patients also claim to feel better and to need fewer pain medications, Axen said. "It's become a vital tool for my patients and their families. #Quote by Alexandra Robbins
Marliere Hospice quotes by Abby Osman
#40. I was genuinely surprised to read a novel that shows many sides of grief experienced by the main characters...that just is not acknowledged in real life today. So many are crying out but not allowing themselves to actually cry through the inner pain and anguish as we are created to do as humans beings. I have seen this working with schoo!s...with hospice patients as a chaplain, in one-on-one spiritual direction and in ministering a church. This is the first novelook I have read that deals with grief in a way that can help those reading it...and not believe they have to do it alone or with those closest to them without feeling they are being unfaithful to them. An inspirational truth-centered read! --- A Retired Minister #Quote by Abby Osman
Marliere Hospice quotes by Brent Green
#41. Suffering can precipitate creativity, liberating the creator through inspiration and then many available channels of human communication, and therefore there is value in suffering. #Quote by Brent Green
