Medicine quotes by Wanda Buckner
#1. Healing is about choices - choices to treat or not to treat, to
choose one type of intervention over another, or to choose one
method of treatment in conjunction with another. One choice does not eliminate all other possibilities.
You can choose and choose again. The most important
choice is the decision to heal; all else follows. #Quote by Wanda Buckner
Medicine quotes by Sivananda
#2. Money can help you to get medicines but not health. Money can help you to get soft pillows, but not sound sleep. Money can help you to get material comforts, but not eternal bliss. Money can help you to get ornaments, but not beauty. Money will help you to get an electric earphone, but not natural hearing. Attain the supreme wealth, wisdom; you will have everything. #Quote by Sivananda
Medicine quotes by Rosemary Sutcliff
#3. 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
Medicine quotes by Ron Paul
#4. Some people charge that Obama is a socialist. He isn't a socialist in the precise sense of the word. He supports corporate medicine, central banking and international banking elites, the military-industrial complex, and, with great exuberance, the surveillance-industrial complex. #Quote by Ron Paul
Medicine quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay
#5. My youngest brother had a wonderful schtick from some time in high school, through to graduating medicine. He had a card in his wallet that read, 'If I am found with amnesia, please give me the following books to read …' And it listed half a dozen books where he longed to recapture that first glorious sense of needing to find out 'what happens next' … the feeling that keeps you up half the night. The feeling that comes before the plot's been learned. #Quote by Guy Gavriel Kay
Medicine quotes by Jeanie Jenny Cameron
#6. Honest listening is one of the best medicines we can offer the dying and the bereaved. #Quote by Jeanie Jenny Cameron
Medicine quotes by Antonio Iturbe
#7. But those who believe that flowers grow in vases don't understand anything about literature. The library has now become her first-aid kit, and she's going to give the children a little of the medicine that helped her recover her smile when she thought she'd lost it forever. #Quote by Antonio Iturbe
Medicine quotes by Erin Hunter
#8. Do you think I'm never wrong? You must trust your own judgement. Believe me, Leafpaw, one day you will make a wonderful medicine cat
perhaps even as good as Spottedleaf. #Quote by Erin Hunter
Medicine quotes by Franklin Raines
#9. So from the housing standpoint, steady as you go, I think, would be the best medicine. #Quote by Franklin Raines
Medicine quotes by Atul Gawande
#10. In a sense, the advances of modern medicine have given us two revolutions: we've undergone a biological transformation of the course of our lives and also a cultural transformation of how we think about that course. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Medicine quotes by Ovid
#11. The art of medicine in the season lies:
Wine given in season oft will benefit,
Which out of season injures. #Quote by Ovid
Medicine quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#12. 'There's no need for fiction in medicine,' remarks Foster ... 'for the facts will always beat anything you fancy.' #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Medicine quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#13. With my renewed focus, informed consent - the ritual by which a patient signs a piece of paper, authorizing surgery - became not a juridical exercise in naming all the risks as quickly as possible, like the voiceover in an ad for a new pharmaceutical, but an opportunity to forge a covenant with a suffering compatriot: Here we are together, and here are the ways through - I promise to guide you, as best as I can, to the other side. #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Medicine quotes by Joanna Russ
#14. That not all men are piggy, only some; that not all men belittle me, only some; that not all men get mad if you won't let them play Chivalry, only some; that not all men write books in which women are idiots, only most; that not all men pull rank on me, only some; that not all men pinch their secretaries' asses, only some; that not all men make obscene remarks to me in the street, only some; that not all men make more money than I do, only some; that not all men make more money than all women, only most; that not all men are rapists, only some; that not all men are promiscuous killers, only some; that not all men control Congress, the Presidency, the police, the army, industry, agriculture, law, science, medicine, architecture, and local government, only some.
I sat down on the lawn and wept. #Quote by Joanna Russ
Medicine quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#15. A man may esteem himself happy when that which is his food is also his medicine. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Medicine quotes by Ruth Rendell
#16. It looks as if the NHS will gradually fade away, and we shall go back to a great deal of private medicine. #Quote by Ruth Rendell
Medicine quotes by Rajneesh
#17. If you become silent after your laughter, one day you will hear God also laughing, you will hear the whole existence laughing - trees and stones and stars with you. #Quote by Rajneesh
Medicine quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#18. Somewhere I lost myself.
I lost the beat of my heart as my own drum.
I have a sense that it was the same time I lost Medicine Woman.
One day my soul slipped out of my body.
Or maybe it was pulled too hard. Or shocked away. I don't know.
But I know that I lost Her.
And have been sick ever since.
An orphaned child
In a world that does not feel like home. #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Medicine quotes by Charles Bukowski
#19. they simply couldn't tell me that they didn't have a cigarette. they had to give me their pitch, their religion: cigarettes were for cubes. they were going to Malibu, to some seeming loose and easy shack in Malibu and burn a bit of grass. they remind me, in a sense, of old ladies standing on a corner selling "The Watchtower." the whole LSD, STP, marijuana, heroin, hashish, prescription cough medicine crowd suffers from the "Watchtower" itch: you gotta be with us, man, or you're out, you're dead. this pitch is a continual and seeming MUST with those who use the stuff. it's no wonder they keep getting busted – they can't use the stuff quietly for their pleasure; they have to make it KNOWN that they are members. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Medicine quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#20. I don't like medicine. There's an old Irish proverb that goes, "If I knew where I was going to die, I wouldn't go there." I suspect that I'm going to die in a hospital, so every time I go past one, I drive really quickly to get away from those things. So I spend a lot of money on health: gyms, I go to naturopaths, acupuncturists; anybody else who's almost the alternative to medicine. I think by the time you need medicine, it's too late. That's my belief. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Medicine quotes by Derek Hough
#21. AN ALKALINE DIET

The pH level measures how acid or alkaline something is. Your blood is slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45, and your stomach is very acidic, with a pH of 3.5 or below, so it can break down food. Most of the foods we eat release either an acid or an alkaline base in the blood. Acidified body cells become weak, which can lead to unhealthy conditions and diseases. They are robbed of the oxygen and energy needed to support a strong and healthy immune system.
I incorporate alkaline foods into my diet every day, and I feel like my energy is soaring. Food literally acts like a battery for the body. Every living thing on this planet is made up of energy, and this includes your food. This energy can be measured in megahertz. Chocolate cake only provides 1 to 3 MHz of energy, while raw almonds have 40 to 50 MHz and green vegetables have 70 to 90 MHz. So if you need 70 MHz of energy on a daily basis to function and you live off junk food and soda, you are creating an energy-deficit crisis in your body.
People say it's expensive to eat healthily. Here's how I see it: you're going to pay either way. Either you're going to pay now for the good foods and feel alive and have a clear mind. Or you'll save some money now and pay for medicine and hospital bills later. I used to make excuses: I'm getting older, that's why I feel so tired all the time. But now I know it doesn't have to be that way. You have to make the conscious decision to nour #Quote by Derek Hough
Medicine quotes by Wright Patman
#22. There are many reasons why the general public doesn't really understand our monetary system. In the first place, money is something that people tend to get emotional about. After all, money involves, and always has involved, something closely akin to faith-which probably explains why in many past societies the money system has been in the hands of a priesthood, the subject of magical rites, and the ceremonial services of the tribe's medicine man. #Quote by Wright Patman
Medicine quotes by Carl Jung
#23. Medicines cure diseases, but only doctors can cure patients. #Quote by Carl Jung
Medicine quotes by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
#24. Medicine is the keystone of the arch of socialism. #Quote by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Medicine quotes by Alice Tisdale Hobart
#25. 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
Medicine quotes by Denis Parsons Burkitt
#26. 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
Medicine quotes by Nick Trout
#27. Here was my lesson in the reach of veterinary medicine, in how an animal doctor may not be the one standing up when disaster strikes and someone shouts, 'Is there a doctor in the house?' but occasionally, if he or she is lucky, a vet can help heal a sick loved one. #Quote by Nick Trout
Medicine quotes by Rachel Naomi Remen
#28. 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
Medicine quotes by Tanya Masse
#29. 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
Medicine quotes by Bruce Lee
#30. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, but I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel. #Quote by Bruce Lee
Medicine quotes by Atul Gawande
#31. Endings matter, not just for the person but, perhaps even more, for the ones left behind. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Medicine quotes by Hippocrates
#32. Those diseases which medicines do not cure, iron cures; those which iron cannot cure, fire cures; and those which fire cannot cure, are to be reckoned wholly incurable. #Quote by Hippocrates
Medicine quotes by Naomi Judd
#33. For many people, managing pain involves using prescription medicine in combination with complementary techniques like physical therapy, acupuncture, yoga and massage. I appreciate this because I truly believe medical care should address the person as a whole - their mind, body, and spirit. #Quote by Naomi Judd
Medicine quotes by Alicia Suskin Ostriker
#34. Wanting All

Husband, it's fine the way your mind performs
Like a circus, sharp
As a sword somebody has
To swallow, rough as a bear,
Complicated as a family of jugglers,
Brave as a sequined trapeze
Artist, the only boy I ever met
Who could beat me in argument
Was why I married you, isn't it,
And you have beaten me, I've beaten you,
We are old polished hands.

Or was it your body, I forget, maybe
I foresaw the thousands on thousands
Of times we have made love
Together, mostly meat
And potatoes love, but sometimes
Higher than wine,
Better than medicine.
How lately you bite, you baby,
How angels record and number
Each gesture, and sketch
Our spinal columns like professionals.

Husband, it's fine how we cook
Dinners together while drinking,
How we get drunk, how
We gossip, work at our desks, dig in the garden,
Go to the movies, tell
The children to clear the bloody table,
How we fit like puzzle pieces.
The mind and body satisfy
Like windows and furniture in a house.
The windows are large, the furniture solid.
What more do I want then, why
Do I prowl the basement, why
Do I reach for your inside
Self as you shut it
Like a trunkful of treasures? Wait,
I cry, as the lid slams on my fingers. #Quote by Alicia Suskin Ostriker
Medicine quotes by Joe E. Lewis
#35. They had me on the operating table all day. They looked into my stomach, my gall bladder, they examined everything inside of me. Know what they decided? I need glasses. #Quote by Joe E. Lewis
Medicine quotes by Lois Lowry
#36. 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
Medicine quotes by Groucho Marx
#37. A hospital bed is a parked taxi with the meter running. #Quote by Groucho Marx
Medicine quotes by Erin Hunter
#38. Birchfall lapped at his wound "You're not very sympathetic for a medicine cat" "I'm here to HEAL you. If you want sympathy, go to the nursery" Jaypaw mewed #Quote by Erin Hunter
Medicine quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#39. Because the Romans did in these instances what all prudent princes ought to do, who have to regard not only present troubles, but also future ones, for which they must prepare with every energy, because, when foreseen, it is easy to remedy them; but if you wait until they approach, the medicine is no longer in time because the malady has become incurable; for it happens in this, as the physicians say it happens in hectic fever, that in the beginning of the malady it is easy to cure but difficult to detect, but in the course of time, not having been either detected or treated in the beginning, it becomes easy to detect but difficult to cure. This it happens in affairs of state, for when the evils that arise have been foreseen (which it is only given to a wise man to see), they can be quickly redressed, but when, through not having been foreseen, they have been permitted to grow in a way that every one can see them, there is no longer a remedy #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Medicine quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#40. The law of miracles is operable by any man who has realized that the essence of creation is light. A master is able to employ his divine knowledge of light phenomena to project instantly into perceptible manifestation the ubiquitous light atoms. The actual form of the projection (whatever it be: a tree, a medicine, a human body) is determined by the yogi's wish and by his power of will and of visualisation. At #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Medicine quotes by Deane Juhan
#41. Touching hands are not like pharmaceuticals or scalpels. They are like flashlights in a darkened room. The medicine they administer is self-awareness. And for many of our painful conditions, this is the aid that is most urgently needed. #Quote by Deane Juhan
Medicine quotes by Michael Lam
#42. The failure to accept cancer as a systemic disease is one of the greatest failures in modern medicine. #Quote by Michael Lam
Medicine quotes by Euripides
#43. The gods have sent medicines for the venom of serpents, but there is no medicine for a bad woman. She is more noxious than the viper, or than fire itself. #Quote by Euripides
Medicine quotes by Jack Kornfield
#44. Embodied courage chooses not to wait until illness or notice of death demands attention. #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Medicine quotes by Heidi DuPree
#45. When we take on responsibility for others, or make them wrong so we can feel right, we get in the way of spirit. #Quote by Heidi DuPree
Medicine quotes by Terry Eagleton
#46. Equally serious is the complaint that psychoanalysis as a medical practice is a form of oppressive social control, labelling individuals and forcing them to conform to arbitrary definitions of 'normality'. This charge is in fact more usually aimed against psychiatric medicine as a whole: as far as Freud's own views on 'normality' are concerned, the accusation is largely misdirected. Freud's work showed, scandalously, just how 'plastic' and variable in its choice of objects libido really is, how so-called sexual perversions form part of what passes as normal sexuality, and how heterosexuality is by no means a natural or self-evident fact. It is true that Freudian psychoanalysis does usually work with some concept of a sexual 'norm'; but this is in no sense given by Nature. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Medicine quotes by Atul Gawande
#47. Medicine was just another a tool you could try, no different from a healing ritual or a family remedy and no more effective. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Medicine quotes by Jesse Torrey
#48. Coffee, though a useful medicine, if drunk constantly will at length induce a decay of health , and hectic fever. #Quote by Jesse Torrey
Medicine quotes by Shana Alexander
#49. The difficulty with becoming a patient is that as soon as you get horizontal, part of your being yearns, not for a doctor, but for a medicine man. #Quote by Shana Alexander
Medicine quotes by Michelle Hodkin
#50. 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
Medicine quotes by Erin Hunter
#51. If Nightcloud were a gentle, loving cat like Leafpool, or feisty and warmhearted like Squirrelflight, it would be easier to feel sorry for her. After all, Crowfeather took her as a mate to prove he was loyal to WindClan in spite of everything of trying to run off with the ThunderClan medicine cat. But she's a difficult she-cat to like, with her short temper and her possessivness over Crowfeather and her son, Breezepaw. #Quote by Erin Hunter
Medicine quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#52. That he survived, and indeed returned to government, was one of man's occasional triumphs over medicine. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Medicine quotes by Moliere
#53. A shoemaker, in making a pair of shoes, cannot spoil a scrap of leather without having to bear the loss; but in our business we may spoil a man without its costing us a farthing. The blunders are never put down to us, and it is always the fault of the fellow who dies. The best of this profession is, that there is the greatest honesty and discretion among the dead; for you never find them complain of the physician who has killed them. #Quote by Moliere
Medicine quotes by Dorothea Dix
#54. I may be too craving of that rich gift, the power of sharing other minds. I have drunk deeply, long, and oh! how blissfully at this fountain in a foreign clime. Hearts met hearts, minds joined with minds; and what were the secondary trials of pain to the enfeebled, suffering body when daily was administered the soul's medicine and food! #Quote by Dorothea Dix
Medicine quotes by Philippe Pinel
#55. It is an art of no little importance to administer medicines properly: but, it is an art of much greater and more difficult acquisition to know when to suspend or altogether to omit them. #Quote by Philippe Pinel
Medicine quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#56. We are taught that curiosity is a thing to be feared. But our first trains came from curious minds. As did medicine, and clocks, and first kisses. #Quote by Lauren DeStefano
Medicine quotes by George Presbury Rowell
#57. I have always understood that money made in the patent medicine business is a practical bar to social success. #Quote by George Presbury Rowell
Medicine quotes by Giorgio Baglivi
#58. The two fulcra of medicine are reason and observation. Observation is the clue to guide the physician in his thinking. #Quote by Giorgio Baglivi
Medicine quotes by Sergei Lavrov
#59. A second opinion never hurts, not only in medicine, but also in politics. #Quote by Sergei Lavrov
Medicine quotes by Atul Gawande
#60. There is a saying about surgeons, meant as a reproof: "Sometimes wrong; never in doubt." But this seemed to me their strength. Each day surgeons are faced with uncertainties. Information is inadequate; the science is ambiguous; one's knowledge and abilities are never perfect. Even with the simplest operation, it cannot be taken for granted that a patient will come through better off - or even alive. Standing at the table my first time, I wondered how the surgeon knew that he would do this patient good, that all the steps would go as planned, that the bleeding would be controlled and infection would not take hold and organs would not be injured. He didn't, of course. But still he cut. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Medicine quotes by Sir Robert Hutchison, 1st Baronet
#61. From inability to let well alone; from too much zeal for the new and contempt for what is old; from putting knowledge before wisdom, science before art and cleverness before common sense; from treating patients as cases; and from making the cure of the disease more grievous than the endurance of the same, Good Lord, deliver us. #Quote by Sir Robert Hutchison, 1st Baronet
Medicine quotes by Richard Shusterman
#62. Improved perception of our somatic feelings not only gives us greater knowledge of ourselves but also enables greater somatic skill, facility, and range of movement that can afford our sensory organs greater scope in giving us knowledge of the world. Besides augmenting our own possibilities of pleasure , such improved somatic functioning and awareness can give us greater power in performing virtuous acts for the benefit of others, since all action somehow depends on the efficacy of our bodily instrument. #Quote by Richard Shusterman
Medicine quotes by Ted Koppel
#63. Our society finds truth too strong a medicine to digest undiluted. In its purest form, truth is not a polite tap on the shoulder. It is a howling reproach. #Quote by Ted Koppel
Medicine quotes by Atul Gawande
#64. I think we are faced in medicine with the reality that we have to be willing to talk about our failures and think hard about them, even despite the malpractice system. I mean, there are things that we can do to make that system better. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Medicine quotes by Debi Thomas
#65. I am not really sure how I got interested in medicine. #Quote by Debi Thomas
Medicine quotes by Andrew Weil
#66. 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
Medicine quotes by H.L. Mencken
#67. The true aim of medicine is not to make men virtuous; it is to safeguard and rescue them from the consequences of their vices. The physician does not preach repentance; he offers absolution. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Medicine quotes by Richard M. Schulze
#68. Doctors said 'go home and enjoy what little is left of your life'. He recovered. #Quote by Richard M. Schulze
Medicine quotes by Sean Penn
#69. Sacrificing American soldiers or innocent civilians in an unprecedented preemptive attack on a separate sovereign nation may well prove itself a most temporary medicine. #Quote by Sean Penn
Medicine quotes by Paul Shepard
#70. All around us, aspects of the modern world - diet, exercise, medicine, art, work, family, philosophy, economics, ecology, psychology - have begun a long circle back toward their former coherence. Whether they can arrive before the natural world is damaged beyond repair and madness destroys humanity, we cannot tell. #Quote by Paul Shepard
Medicine quotes by Joseph Auslander
#71. This is an extremely ambitious book. In addition to science and mathematics, Byers brings to bear insights from literature, philosophy, religion, history, anthropology, medicine, and psychology. The Blind Spot breaks new ground, and represents a major step forward in the philosophy of science. The book is also a page-turner, which is rare for this topic. #Quote by Joseph Auslander
Medicine quotes by Michele Bachmann
#72. I think people have no idea what's coming down the pike. This is the crown jewel of socialism. And we only have next week to stop it ... This is socialized medicine and like I said Sean this is the crown jewel of socialism ... It's unconstitutional. #Quote by Michele Bachmann
Medicine quotes by John Doolittle
#73. Developments in medical technology have long been confined to procedural or pharmaceutical advances, while neglecting a most basic and essential component of medicine: patient information management. #Quote by John Doolittle
Medicine quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#74. Words began to feel as weightless as the breath that carried. Stepping back, I realized that I was merely confirming what I already knew: I wanted that direct experience. It was only in practicing medicine that I could pursue a serious biological philosophy. Moral speculation was puny compared to moral action. #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Medicine quotes by Graham Hancock
#75. An Ojibwa tradition seems relevant. It speaks of a comet that 'burned up the earth' in the remote past and that is destined to return:
'The star with the long, wide tail is going to destroy the world some day when it comes low again. That's the comet called Long-Tailed Heavenly Climbing Star. It came down here once, thousands of years ago. Just like the sun. It had radiation and burning heat in its tail ...
Indian people were here before that happened, living on the earth. But things were wrong with nature on the earth, and a lot of people had abandoned the spiritual path. The Holy Spirit warned them a long time before the comet came. Medicine men told everyone to prepare. ... The comet burnt everything to the ground. There wasn't a thing left ...
There is a prophecy that the comet will destroy the earth again. But it's a restoration. The greatest blessing this island [Turtle Island/America] will ever have. People don't listen to their spiritual guidance today. There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars when the comet comes down again. #Quote by Graham Hancock
Medicine quotes by Sandor Marai
#76. We have done everything within the scope of modern medicine.' Those are just words. They apparently did everything within their erratic knowledge and the limits of their vanity. #Quote by Sandor Marai
Medicine quotes by Vernon Coleman
#77. 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
Medicine quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#78. There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Medicine quotes by Amber Dermont
#79. The idea of getting high on someone else's dime sounded like the right and necessary medicine. #Quote by Amber Dermont
Medicine quotes by Finis Mitchell
#80. A mountain is the best medicine for a troubled mind. Seldom does man ponder his own insignificance. He thinks he is master of all things. He thinks the world is his without bonds. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Only when he tramps the mountains alone, communing with nature, observing other insignificant creatures about him, to come and go as he will, does he awaken to his own short-lived presence on earth. #Quote by Finis Mitchell
Medicine quotes by Walter Gilbert
#81. I am afraid that those comments go back to the late 80's. At that time I was a skeptic - the argument based on Koch's postulates to try to distinguish between cause and association. ... Today I would regard the success of the many antiviral agents which lower the virus titers (to be expected) and also resolve the failure of the immune system (only expected if the virus is the cause of the failure) as a reasonable proof of the causation argument. #Quote by Walter Gilbert
Medicine quotes by Deepak Chopra
#82. Before the art of medicine comes the art of belief. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Medicine quotes by Aaron Ciechanover
#83. Towards the end of the military service, I had to make what I assume has been the most important decision in my career: to start a residency in clinical medicine, in surgery, which was my favorite choice, or to enroll into graduate school and start a career in scientific research. It was clear to me that I was heading for graduate school. #Quote by Aaron Ciechanover
Medicine quotes by Esther Hicks
#84. The very best approach to medicine is, "Well, I see your physical body is sick, what's been bothering you? What are you worried about? What are you angry about? What are you frustrated about?" Because that is what is at the root of all of this. And then say, "Let it go, let it go, let it go." That's the message, and if they could hear you and do that, then they would all be well right away. #Quote by Esther Hicks
Medicine quotes by Arthur Miller
#85. Nobody dast blame this man. You don't understand: Willy was a salesman. And for a salesman, there's no rock bottom to the life. He don't put a bolt to a nut, he don't tell you the law or give you medicine. He's a man way out there in the blue riding on a smile and a shoeshine. And when they start not smiling back - that's an earthquake. And then you get yourself a couple spots on your hat and your finished. Nobody dast blame this man. A salesman is got to dream boy, it comes with the territory. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Medicine quotes by Dr. Sherwin Nuland
#86. There is no way to deter old age from its grim duty, but a life of accomplishments makes up in quality for what it cannot add in quantity. #Quote by Dr. Sherwin Nuland
Medicine quotes by Abraham Verghese
#87. I was temperamentally better suited to a cognitive discipline, to an introspective field - internal medicine, or perhaps psychiatry. The sight of the operating theater made me sweat. The idea of holding a scalpel caused coils to form in my belly. (It still does.) Surgery was the most difficult thing I could imagine.
And so I became a surgeon. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Medicine quotes by Richard Selzer
#88. Cutting for Stone is nothing short of masterful -a riveting tale of love, medicine, and the complex dynamic of twin brothers. It is beautifully conceived and written. The settings are wonderfully pictorial. There is no doubt in my mind that Cutting for Stone will endure in the permanent literature of our time. #Quote by Richard Selzer
Medicine quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#89. Laughter is the only medicine, without side effects. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Medicine quotes by Amar Chandel
#90. Wrong eating is the disease.
Right eating is the medicine. #Quote by Amar Chandel
Medicine quotes by Severo Ochoa
#91. Among the great names that adorn the roll of Nobel prize-winners in Medicine is that of Otto Meyerhof, my admired teacher and friend, to whose inspiration, guidance and encouragement I owe so very much. #Quote by Severo Ochoa
Medicine quotes by Vincent Gallo
#92. I don't drink any coffee or take any drugs and I don't smoke cigarettes and I don't eat sugar and I don't take any medicine at all. I eat a lot of fish, vegetables, and I stay away from starches. #Quote by Vincent Gallo
Medicine quotes by Anton Chekhov
#93. Since Samoylenko had left Dorpat, where he had studied medicine, he had rarely seen a German and had not read a single German book, but, in his opinion, every harmful idea in politics or science was due to the Germans. Where he had got this notion he could not have said himself, but he held it firmly. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Medicine quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#94. I love it here in Boston and I love studying medicine. But
it's not home. Dublin is home. Being back with you felt like home. I miss my
best friend.
I've met some great guys here, but I didn't grow up with any of them
playing cops and robbers in my back garden. I don't feel like they are real
friends. I haven't kicked them in the shins, stayed up all night on Santa
watch with them, hung from trees pretending to be monkeys, played hotel,
or laughed my heart out as their stomachs were pumped. It's kind of hard to
beat that. #Quote by Cecelia Ahern
Medicine quotes by Chris Kilham
#95. We are destroying the world's greatest pharmacy. It is very important that we protect the rainforest in everything that we do. #Quote by Chris Kilham
Medicine quotes by Richard Whately
#96. Eloquence is relative. One can no more pronounce on the eloquence of any composition than the wholesomeness of a medicine, without knowing for whom it is intended. #Quote by Richard Whately
Medicine quotes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
#97. If not for the success that medicine has made, I might be part of a much different story right now. #Quote by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Medicine quotes by B. J. Palmer
#98. Medicine is about disease and what makes people die. Chiropractic is about life and what makes people live. #Quote by B. J. Palmer

Medicine quotes by Vilayanur S. Ramachandran
#100. Without ducking responsibility, what's wrong with medicine today is that it is predicated on providing treatment, not on reducing suffering. Not on solving problems. #Quote by Vilayanur S. Ramachandran
Medicine quotes by Samuel Smiles
#101. Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance or medicine, but lost time is gone forever. #Quote by Samuel Smiles
Medicine quotes by Charles Portis
#102. On his deathbed he asked for a priest and became a Catholic. That was his wife's religion. It was his own business and none of mine. If you had sentenced one hundred and sixty men to death and seen around eighty of them swing, then maybe at the last minute you would feel the need for some stronger medicine than the Methodists could make. #Quote by Charles Portis
Medicine quotes by Nicholas Carr
#103. Bruce Friedman, who blogs about the use of computers in medicine, has also described how the Internet is altering his mental habits. "I now have almost totally lost the ability to read and absorb a longish article on the web or in print," he says.4 A pathologist on the faculty of the University of Michigan Medical School, Friedman elaborated on his comment in a telephone conversation with me. His thinking, he said, has taken on a "staccato" quality, reflecting the way he quickly scans short passages of text from many sources online. #Quote by Nicholas Carr
Medicine quotes by Fanny Fern
#104. You are taken sick; you send for a physician; he comes in, stays ten minutes, prescribes for you a healing medicine, and charges you three or four dollars. You call this 'extortionate' - forgetting the medical books he must have waded through, the revolting dissections he must have witnessed and participated in, and the medical lectures he must have digested, to have enabled him to pronounce on your case so summarily and satisfactorily. #Quote by Fanny Fern
Medicine quotes by A.E. Samaan
#105. The vitriol and viciousness is the inevitable result of a government increasingly deciding the vital aspects of people's lives. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Medicine quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#106. Life in These United States. Laughter Is the Best Medicine. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Medicine quotes by Anne Wojcicki
#107. As the knowledge around personalized medicine continues to grow, consumers should expect their healthcare providers to begin to incorporate genetic information into their treatments and preventative care. #Quote by Anne Wojcicki
Medicine quotes by Alberto Villoldo
#108. In the West we have a disease-care system, and medicine recognizes thousands of ailments and myriad remedies. One Spirit Medicine, on the other hand, is a health-care system that identifies only one ailment and one cure. The ailment is alienation from our feelings, from our bodies, from the earth, and from Spirit. The cure is the experience of primeval Oneness with all, which restores inner harmony and facilitates recovery from all maladies, regardless of origin. #Quote by Alberto Villoldo
Medicine quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#109. Chemistry ... is like the maid occupied with daily civilisation; she is busy with fertilisers, medicines, glass, insecticides ... for she dispenses the recipes. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Medicine quotes by Helen Thomas
#110. Don't let the politicians chip away at the New Deal and the Great Society programs like Social Security and Medicare, that puts a floor beyond which the elderly, the sick, the powerless do not starve or lack for medicine or shelter. #Quote by Helen Thomas
Medicine quotes by David A. Cooper
#111. A spiritual retreat is medicine for soul starvation. Through silence, solitary practice, and simple living, we begin to fill the empty reservoir. This lifts the veils, dissolves the masks, and creates space within for the feelings of forgiveness, compassion, and loving kindness that are so often blocked. #Quote by David A. Cooper
Medicine quotes by Erich Segal
#112. He had spent most of his lifetime studying the art of medicine and realized now that he would never really understand its mysteries.
For medicine is an eternal quest for reasons - causes that explain effects.
Science cannot comprehend a miracle. #Quote by Erich Segal
Medicine quotes by Muhammad Ali
#113. I hospitalized a rock, killed a brick ... I'm so bad I make medicine sick! #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Medicine quotes by Nicolas Chamfort
#114. We gild our medicines with sweets; why not clothe truth and morals in peasant garments as well? #Quote by Nicolas Chamfort
Medicine quotes by Carl Sagan
#115. Advances in medicine and agriculture have saved vastly more lives than have been lost in all the wars in history. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Medicine quotes by Albert Pike
#116. The universal medicine for the Soul is the Supreme Reason and Absolute Justice; for the mind, mathematical and practical Truth; for the body, the Quintessence, a combination of light and gold. #Quote by Albert Pike
Medicine quotes by Pierre Charles Alexandre Louis
#117. Without the aid of statistics nothing like real medicine is possible. #Quote by Pierre Charles Alexandre Louis
Medicine quotes by Laura Innes
#118. And it's sort of an old-fashioned ER, in that it's very much about the medicine, and how these people cope. There's very little about the personal lives of the characters. #Quote by Laura Innes
Medicine quotes by Alan Bennett
#119. The longer I practise medicine, the more convinced I am there are only two types of cases: those that involve taking the trousers off and those that don't. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Medicine quotes by Konosuke Matsushita
#120. In order to do a good job a person must like what he or she is doing ... 'Love thy work', and you will be successful ... If you do things just because you have to, then you will never enjoy work. Nor will you do a good job if you do it simply out of a sense of duty. stress is often a by-product of such passive or negative attitudes toward work. Paradoxically as it may sound, love of work can be the best medicine for workaholism. #Quote by Konosuke Matsushita
Medicine quotes by Heather Demetrios
#121. Love is medicine and dreams are oxygen. #Quote by Heather Demetrios
Medicine quotes by Hieromonk Tihon
#122. What do you have in here?" [the Archbishop] asked, pointing to one of the little bottles. "Quinine, Vladika," answered the father confused. "Preparation against fever… How often must one take it per day and for how many days?" "Three, four times a day, depending on the gravity of the illness. One should take it until the fever breaks down." "Therefore, in order to get rid of such a disease that, in fact, is a just trifle, one has to take this medicine three or four times a day and pay the doctor a few visits. Do the same with the Great Medicine that our Lord gave us. The Apostles and the first Christians would commune daily, spending their time in love and continuous praying. And we, the haters, the flatterers, always ready to trip someone, come to our Heavenly Doctor once a year and want immediate cure from all diseases, distresses and sufferings inherited from our ancestors; we want nature, which deteriorated over thousands of years, to instantly revive and we want ourselves to become new people. [Chapter IX] #Quote by Hieromonk Tihon
Medicine quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#123. 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
Medicine quotes by Wilhelm Wundt
#124. The attitude of physiological psychology to sensations and feelings, considered as psychical elements, is, naturally, the attitude of psychology at large. #Quote by Wilhelm Wundt
Medicine quotes by Roger Bannister
#125. I wanted to be a neurologist. That seemed to be the most difficult, most intriguing, and the most important aspect of medicine, which had links with psychology, aggression, behavior, and human affairs. #Quote by Roger Bannister
Medicine quotes by Paul Gitwaza
#126. Compassion‬ is medicine to a wounded heart. When we show compassion to those who are suffering we preach Jesus in another way. #Quote by Paul Gitwaza
Medicine quotes by Hippocrates
#127. Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also a love of Humanity. #Quote by Hippocrates
Medicine quotes by Stephen Fry
#128. Alternative medicine people call themselves "holistic" and say it's the "whole" approach. Well, if it's the whole approach, let it be the mind as well. Use logic, use sense, use the incredible five wits you were given by creation. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Medicine quotes by Russ Ramsey
#129. With all due respect to my surgeon, in a perfect world he would be out of a job. #Quote by Russ Ramsey
Medicine quotes by Alex Berenson
#130. 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
Medicine quotes by Sam Harris
#131. Anyone being flown to a distant city for heart-bypass surgery has conceded, tacitly at least, that we have learned a few things about physics, geography, engineering, and medicine since the time of Moses. #Quote by Sam Harris
Medicine quotes by Richard Preston
#132. The Ebola war wasn't won with modern medicine. It was a medieval war, and it went down as a brutal engagement between ordinary people and a life form that was trying to use the human body as a means of survival through deep time. In order to win this war against an inhuman enemy, people had to make themselves inhuman. They had to suppress their deepest feelings and instincts, tear down the bonds of love and feeling, isolate themselves from or isolate those they loved the most. Human beings had to become like monsters, in order to save their human selves. #Quote by Richard Preston
Medicine quotes by Andrew Weil
#133. Whenever I write about mental health and integrative therapies, I am accused of being prejudiced against pharmaceuticals. So let me be clear - integrative medicine is the judicious application of both conventional and evidence-based natural therapies. #Quote by Andrew Weil
Medicine quotes by Cynthia Hand
#134. He leaned in. This was it. His first kiss. His first k -
"BOY!" yelled a distant voice. "WHERE ARE YOU, BOY!"
Grace drew back abruptly. "Your granny is calling you."
"She can wait," he said.
"IT'S TIME FOR YOUR MEDICINE!" Gran called out.
Gracie jumped to her feet. "You should go in."
"BOY!"
She hastily brushed off her trousers. "Besides, I just remembered some chores your sister wanted me to get done. Some very important chores. Full of ... tasks."
"Tasks?" Edward said, doubtful.
"Yes, tasks. Lots of them."
"Gracie," he started as she backed away from him. "Wait."
"GET IN HERE, BOY!"
He watched helplessly as Gracie set off toward the keep, almost at a run.
"BOY!"
At the moment we should confess that Edward briefly considered murdering his dear sweet grandmother. And he might have gotten away with it too, on account of the rest of the world thinking the old lady was already dead. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Medicine quotes by Samuel Shem
#135. To do nothing for the gomers was to do something, and the more conscientiously I did nothing the better they got. #Quote by Samuel Shem
Medicine quotes by Frank Chodorov
#136. The more subsidized it is, the less free it is. What is known as 'free education' is the least free of all, for it is a state-owned institution; it is socialized education - just like socialized medicine or the socialized post office - and cannot possibly be separated from political control. #Quote by Frank Chodorov
Medicine quotes by Jim Butcher
#137. You've never been a peasant in medieval France, Harry," Bob said. "Life was hard for those people. Never enough food, shelter, medicine. If you could give yourself a fur coat and the ability to go out and hunt your own meat, you would have jumped at the chance, too. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Medicine quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#138. The Saint is a medicine because he is an antidote. Indeed that is why the saint is often a martyr; he is mistaken for a poison because he is an antidote. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Medicine quotes by Adeline Yen Mah
#139. 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
Medicine quotes by Oliver Sacks
#140. What could we do? What should we do? 'There are no prescriptions,' Luria wrote, 'in a case like this. Do whatever your ingenuity and your heart suggest. There is little or no hope of any recovery in his memory. But a man does not consist of memory alone. He has feeling, will, sensibilities, moral being - matters of which neuropsychology cannot speak. And it is here, beyond the realm of an impersonal psychology, that you may find ways to touch him, and change him. [...] Neuropsychologically, there is little or nothing you can do; but in the realm of the Individual, there may be much you can do. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Medicine quotes by Samuel Hopkins Adams
#141. 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
Medicine quotes by Adele Langlois
#142. In short, bioethics investigates ethical issues arising in the life sciences (medicine, health care, genetics, biology, research, etc) by applying the principles and methods of moral philosophy to these problems. #Quote by Adele Langlois
Medicine quotes by Robin McKinley
#143. I advise those who want to become writers to study veterinary medicine, which is easier. You don't want to be a writer unless you have no choice - and if you have no choice, good luck to you. #Quote by Robin McKinley
Medicine quotes by Norman Cousins
#144. The marvelous pharmacy that was designed by nature and placed into our being by the universal architect produces most of the medicines we need. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Medicine quotes by Antonio Tripodoro
#145. 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
Medicine quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#146. Because all the sick do not recover, therefore medicine is not an art. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Medicine quotes by V.S. Ramachandran
#147. One of the first things we teach medical students is to listen to the patient by taking a careful medical history. Ninety percent of the time, you can arrive at an uncannily accurate diagnosis by paying close attention, using physical examination and sophisticated lab test to confirm your hunch (and to increase the bill to the insurance company). #Quote by V.S. Ramachandran
Medicine quotes by Nicolas Cage
#148. Snakes are sometimes perceived as evil, but they are also perceived as medicine. If you look at an ambulance, there's the two snakes on the side of the ambulance. The caduceus, or the staff of Hermes, there's the two snakes going up it, which means that the venom can also be healing. #Quote by Nicolas Cage
Medicine quotes by Philip K. Dick
#149. John Isidore said, "I found a spider."

The three androids glanced up, momentarily moving their attention from the TV screen to him.

"Let's see it," Pris said. She held out her hand.

Roy Baty said, "Don't talk while Buster is on."

"I've never seen a spider," Pris said. She cupped the medicine bottle in her palms, surveying the creature within. "All those legs. Why's it need so many legs, J. R.?"

"That's the way spiders are," Isidore said, his heart pounding; he had difficulty breathing. "Eight legs."

Rising to her feet, Pris said, "You know what I think, J. R.? I think it doesn't need all those legs."

"Eight?" Irmgard Baty said. "Why couldn't it get by on four? Cut four off and see." Impulsively opening her purse, she produced a pair of clean, sharp cuticle scissors, which she passed to Pris.

A weird terror struck at J. R. Isidore.

Carrying the medicine bottle into the kitchen, Pris seated herself at J. R. Isidore's breakfast table. She removed the lid from the bottle and dumped the spider out. "It probably won't be able to run as fast," she said, "but there's nothing for it to catch around here anyhow. It'll die anyway." She reached for the scissors.

"Please," Isidore said.

Pris glanced up inquiringly. "Is it worth something?"

"Don't mutilate it," he said wheezingly. Imploringly.

With the scissors, Pris snipped off one of the spider's #Quote by Philip K. Dick

Medicine quotes by Mark Twain
#151. ...If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it.

"The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? #Quote by Mark Twain
Medicine quotes by Karen Witemeyer
#152. He made a glorious picture. Tall in the saddle. Valiant. Unafraid of the dangers that lurked ahead. A hero on a noble quest. A rather romantic notion for a woman who'd packed away dreams of handsome knights long ago in favor of the reality of a career in medicine. #Quote by Karen Witemeyer
Medicine quotes by J.S.B. Morse
#153. There is more mental health cure found in a pile of dirt than in all the behavioral therapy and drugs in modern medical science. #Quote by J.S.B. Morse
Medicine quotes by Sheri Fink
#154. Ever since Katrina, there has been a proliferation of efforts at the state level and among hospital administrators to come up with guidelines that would help professionals stuck in a situation like this to prioritize patients. These are questions of values much more than they are of medicine or nursing. They're the province of everybody. #Quote by Sheri Fink
Medicine quotes by Dennis Mccullough
#155. Far from the cinematic drama of hospital emergency rooms, Slow Medicine embraces the unsung work of daily attention that is the greatest need and firmest foundation for longevity and quality of life at the farthest reach of age. Excellent chronic care attends to the day-to-day needs and conditions of the patient - by offering emotional support and social stimulation, supplying better nutrition, easing chronic skin and nail conditions, and making sleeping, moving, bathing, dressing, and voiding easier. Slow Medicine is the careful practice that most reliably sustains fragile patterns of well-being. This foundation for better elder care strengthens, rather than replaces, the selective use of high-tech care. During the time of the writing of this book, I have lived the #Quote by Dennis Mccullough
Medicine quotes by Willie Nelson
#156. Marijuana is like sex. If I don't do it every day, I get a headache. I think marijuana should be recognized for what it is, as a medicine, an herb that grows in the ground. If you need it, use it. #Quote by Willie Nelson
Medicine quotes by Mark Twain
#157. If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way.

He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk.

Medicine quotes by Robert J. Wicks
#159. Critical thinking helps us to more clearly understand situations, patients, colleagues, and our agendas, negative emotions, attitudes, motivations, talents, and growing edges. This not only helps us to have a greater grasp of reality but also stops the drain of psychological energy that is necessary to be defensive or to protect our image. Because critical thinking is not natural, although we may think it is for us, it takes discipline, a willingness to face the unpleasant, and a stamina that allows one not to become unduly frustrated when we do not achieve results as quickly as we prefer with respect to our insights and growth. #Quote by Robert J. Wicks
Medicine quotes by Cardinal Richelieu
#160. Friendship is the medicine for all misfortune; but ingratitude dries up the fountain of all goodness. #Quote by Cardinal Richelieu
Medicine quotes by Henry Marsh
#161. 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
Medicine quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#162. I love the imagery of struggle. I sometimes wish I were suffering in a good cause, or risking my life for the good of others, instead of just being a gravely endangered patient. Allow me to inform you, though, that when you sit in a room with a set of other finalists, and kindly people bring a huge transparent bag of poison and plug it into your arm, and you either read or don't read a book while the venom sack gradually empties itself into your system, the image of the ardent solider is the very last one that will occur to you. You feel swamped with passivity and impotence: dissolving in powerlessness like a sugar lump in water. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Medicine quotes by David McCullough
#163. I feel very strongly that history is about everything. It isn't just about politics or the military or social issues. If art, music, engineering, science, medicine, finance, the world of architecture and technology - if those are left out, then you're not getting a full sense of the human condition. History is human and we human beings are involved in all kinds of things and that's part of our humanity. #Quote by David McCullough
Medicine quotes by Paul Farmer

Medicine quotes by Hippocrates
#169. Medicine is of all the Arts the most noble; but, owing to the ignorance of those who practice it, and of those who, inconsiderately, form a judgment of them, it is at present behind all the arts. #Quote by Hippocrates
Medicine quotes by Florence Nightingale
#170. It is often thought that medicine is the curative process. It is no such thing; medicine is the surgery of functions, as surgery proper is that of limbs and organs. Neither can do anything but remove obstructions; neither can cure; nature alone cures. Surgery removes the bullet out of the limb, which is an obstruction to cure, but nature heals the wound. So it is with medicine; the function of an organ becomes obstructed; medicine so far as we know, assists nature to remove the obstruction, but does nothing more. And what nursing has to do in either case, is to put the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon him. #Quote by Florence Nightingale

Medicine quotes by Abraham Verghese
#173. A beautiful literary collection that tells of today's country doctor, somewhat removed from our romantic black-bag image of days gone by, but still fulfilling an essential need in caring for spread-out populations. At times, with today's advances in technology, medicine in rural America looks very like it does in America's cities, but the variety of practices is enormous. The Country Doctor Revisited captures the trials and tribulations of medicine, but also the satisfaction and the extraordinary rewards that come to those who embrace such a practice. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Medicine quotes by Antonio R Damasio
#174. The distinction between diseases of "brain" and "mind," between "neurological" problems and "psychological" or "psychiatric" ones, is an unfortunate cultural inheritance that permeates society and medicine. It reflects a basic ignorance of the relation between brain and mind. Diseases of the brain are seen as tragedies visited on people who cannot be blamed for their condition, while diseases of the mind, especially those that affect conduct and emotion, are seen as social inconveniences for which sufferers have much to answer. Individuals are to be blamed for their character flaws, defective emotional modulation, and so on; lack of willpower is supposed to be the primary problem. #Quote by Antonio R Damasio
Medicine quotes by Daphne Oz

Medicine quotes by Alfred Kinsey
#176. The history of medicine proves that in so far as man seeks to know himself and face his whole nature, he has become free from bewildered fear, despondent shame, or arrant hypocrisy. As long as sex is dealt with in the current confusion of ignorance and sophistication, denial and indulgence, suppression and stimulation, punishment and exploitation, secrecy and display, it will be associated with a duplicity and indecency that lead neither to intellectual honesty nor human dignity. #Quote by Alfred Kinsey

Medicine quotes by Amy A. Bartol
#179. I look away from his eyes. Since I've met you, Brennus, my life has not been mine, I say with more honesty than I like to admit to myself. Time with you is visceral ... white-knuckle moments that make me know that I'm alive. I think I have become addicted to the rush of fear and desire you create ... the uncertainty that I was once forced to endure has now become a need, like those pills that people keep in their medicine cabinets. #Quote by Amy A.

Medicine quotes by Rick Remender
#184. It is all too easy to give ourselves over to the traumas of the past -- allowing pain to define us. There is a medicine for that -- hope and perseverance. Light brings light. And no matter what we face there is one thing we can control: our outlook. It's not about ignoring the pain, or mindlessly believing things will simply be better -- it's about finding the joy in participating. And when the weight of the past pulls us low we must find the strength to release it ... and finally give ourselves permission to start over. #Quote by Rick Remender
Medicine quotes by Atul Gawande
#185. 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
Medicine quotes by Ajay Chandan
#186. Medicine directly to the disease doesn't work, rather, the root cause needs to be diagnosed!
Similarly the evil deeds of Man can never be fixed unless the evil heart behind it, is fixed at the first place! #Quote by Ajay Chandan
Medicine quotes by Saint John Chrysostom
#187. Fasting is a medicine. #Quote by Saint John Chrysostom
Medicine quotes by Marcellus A. Walker
#188. No doubt about it, allopathic medicine (the term used to describe conventional Western medicine) is superb at dealing with trauma and bacterial infections, but it is not nearly as effective as natural medicine at managing chronic pain, autoimmune disease, and degenerative conditions. #Quote by Marcellus A. Walker

Medicine quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#190. Constant complaints were being made of incompetent attendants, and some dozen women did double duty, and then were blamed for breaking down. If any hospital director fancies this a good and economical arrangement, allow one used up nurse to tell him it isn't, and beg him to spare the sisterhood, who sometimes, in their sympathy, forget that they are mortal, and run the risk of being made immortal, sooner than is agreeable to their partial friends. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott

Medicine quotes by Henry Fuseli
#192. Our ideas are the offspring of our senses; we are not more able to create the form of a being we have not seen, without retrospect to one we know, than we are able to create a new sense. He whose fancy has conceived an idea of the most beautiful form must have composed it from actual existence. #Quote by Henry Fuseli
Medicine quotes by Black Elk
#193. They told me I had been sick twelve days, lying like dead all the while, and that Whirlwind Chaser, who was Standing Bear's uncle and a medicine man, had brought me back to life. #Quote by Black Elk
Medicine quotes by J. D. Hayworth
#194. And if you like socialized medicine, you will love this government bureaucracy under [then-Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee] Al Gore that will actually cost seniors who get $500 a year in prescription drugs right now - it will end up costing seniors more money and take away control from those seniors. #Quote by J. D. Hayworth
Medicine quotes by George Santayana
#195. Until the curtain was rung down on the last act of the drama (and it might have no last act!) he wished the intellectual cripples and the moral hunchbacks not to be jeered at; perhaps they might turn out to be the heroes of the play. #Quote by George Santayana
Medicine quotes by Jed Diamond
#196. The physical body itself is continually vibrating and resonating with other energies in the environment. While Western medicine has developed few interventions that are based in the recognition that energy is at the foundation of, or at least intimately intertwined with, physical matter, scientists from many other disciplines are working within this perspective. They are, for example, recognizing the potential explanatory power of fields that are 'totally unlike any of those presently known' in the ways they hold and transmit information, display quantum properties such as nonlocal influence, and interact with consciousness. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Medicine quotes by Jane Pauley
#197. My goal is to see that mental illness is treated like cancer. #Quote by Jane Pauley
Medicine quotes by Osho
#198. In the old days prime ministers were not chosen by the vote of the people, because how can you choose by the vote of the people? How can people choose their leaders? They would like to, but they are not capable. Democracy is just a dream, it has not happened anywhere – it cannot happen. And wherever it happens it creates trouble; the medicine proves more dangerous than the disease itself. #Quote by Osho
Medicine quotes by Wangari Maathai
#199. The people are starving. They need food; they need medicine; they need education. They do not need a skyscraper to house the ruling party and a 24-hour TV station. #Quote by Wangari Maathai
Medicine quotes by John Ortberg
#200. Jesus changed how the world thinks about science, medicine, human rights, education & more. #Quote by John Ortberg
