Patient quotes by Hans Eysenck
#1. In our tabulation of psychoanalytic results, we have classed those who stopped treatment together with those not improved. This appears to be reasonable; a patient who fails to finish his treatment, and is not improved, is surely a therapeutic failure. #Quote by Hans Eysenck
Patient quotes by Warren W. Wiersbe
#2. God is not in a hurry. He kept Abraham and Sarah waiting twenty-five years before Issac was born, and Issac and Rebekah waited twenty years for Esau and Jacob, Jacob had to wait fourteen years to get the bride he really wanted, and then he had to serve six more years to build up his flocks so he could be independent, a total of twenty years. Twenty-two years passed between Joseph's betrayal by his brothers and the brothers' reconciliation in Egypt. God is not in a hurry because all His works are done in love. "Love is patient, love is kind" (1 Cor.13:4). Let's be grateful that God takes His time. #Quote by Warren W. Wiersbe
Patient quotes by Emo Philips
#3. I've been at stand-up for years: after a while, you get as jaded as the proverbial gynecologist who no longer enjoys drugging and violating his patients. #Quote by Emo Philips
Patient quotes by Patricia A. Murphy
#4. Total seizure control for your goal may not always be wise. Sometimes it is better to contend with an occasional mild seizure than to have the constant debilitating side effects of too much medication. To the best of our knowledge, brief seizures do no brain damage." She stresses the need for the patient to share in the decision and for the physician to remember his oath: "First do no harm. #Quote by Patricia A. Murphy
Patient quotes by Nelson DeMille
#5. Basically, all women are nurturers and healers, and all men are mental patients to varying degrees. #Quote by Nelson DeMille
Patient quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#6. 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
Patient quotes by Florence King
#7. The American way of stress is comparable to Freud's 'beloved symptom', his name for the cherished neurosis that a patient cultivates like the rarest of orchids and does not want to be cured of. Stress makes Americans feel busy, important, and in demand, and simultaneously deprived, ignored, and victimized. Stress makes them feel interesting and complex instead of boring and simple, and carries an assumption of sensitivity not unlike the Old World assumption that aristocrats were high-strung. In short, stress has become a status symbol. #Quote by Florence King
Patient quotes by Karen Salmansohn
#8. Stop bragging about your lack of sweat and effort in achieving your goals. Start bragging about how hard you work, how patient you've become. #Quote by Karen Salmansohn
Patient quotes by Isabel Allende
#9. Love is a condition that tends to cloud men's reason, but it is not fatal. Usually all the patient needs is to have his love returned, and he will snap out of it and begin to sniff the air in search of new prey #Quote by Isabel Allende
Patient quotes by Jenny McCarthy
#10. Google is one of the most incredible breakthroughs that we have today. Yes, it can scare a lot of patients, thinking we're all dying because we look up something on Google. But there's also a lot of anecdotal information from parents, firsthand accounts of what they did for their own child. #Quote by Jenny McCarthy
Patient quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#11. With patience endurance, you can survive any storm. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Patient quotes by Mark W. Boyer
#12. I am not smart, I pay attention.
I am not considerate, I listen.
I am not patient, I make time.
I'm not lucky, I work hard. #Quote by Mark W. Boyer
Patient quotes by Amy Dickinson
#13. This is a tough situation. But it is what it is, and time has an amazing way of knitting together solutions as long as everybody stays calm and resolves to be as gentle and patient as possible. #Quote by Amy Dickinson
Patient quotes by Atul Gawande
#14. Even worse than losing self-confidence, though, is reacting defensively. There are surgeons who will see faults everywhere except in themselves. They have no questions and no fears about their abilities. As a result, they learn nothing from their mistakes and know nothing of their limitations. As one surgeon told me, it is a rare but alarming thing to meet a surgeon without fear. "If you're not a little afraid when you operate," he said, "you're bound to do a patient a grave disservice. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Patient quotes by Henny Youngman
#15. The patient says, "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." "Then don't do that!" #Quote by Henny Youngman
Patient quotes by Rumi
#16. Be patient where you sit in the dark. The dawn is coming #Quote by Rumi
Patient quotes by Hudson Taylor
#17. There are three indispensable requirements for a missionary: 1. Patience 2. Patience 3. Patience. #Quote by Hudson Taylor
Patient quotes by John Greenleaf Whittier
#18. Through the dark and stormy night Faith beholds a feeble light Up the blackness streaking; Knowing God's own time is best, In a patient hope I rest For the full day-breaking! #Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier
Patient quotes by Charles Dickens
#19. Mr Pickwick awoke the next morning, there was not a symptom of rheumatism about him; which proves, as Mr Bob Sawyer very justly observed, that there is nothing like hot punch in such cases; and that if ever hot punch did fail to act as a preventive, it was merely because the patient fell in to the vulgar error of not taking enough of it. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Patient quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#20. You can ask God for anything. He will answer you. Be patient to wait and expect the answer. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Patient quotes by Melody Grace
#21. My mom always said, there are two kinds of love in this world: the steady breeze, and the hurricane.
The steady breeze is slow and patient. It fills the sails of the boats in the harbor, and lifts laundry on the line. It cools you on a hot summer's day; brings the leaves of fall, like clockwork every year. You can count on a breeze, steady and sure and true.
But there's nothing steady about a hurricane. It rips through town, reckless, sending the ocean foaming up the shore, felling trees and power lines and anyone dumb or fucked-up enough to stand in its path. Sure, it's a thrill like nothing you've ever known: your pulse kicks, your body calls to it, like a spirit possessed. It's wild and breathless and all-consuming.
But what comes next?
"You see a hurricane coming, you run." My mom told me, the summer I turned eighteen. "You shut the doors, and you bar the windows. Because come morning, there'll be nothing but the wreckage left behind."
Emerson Ray was my hurricane.
Looking back, I wonder if mom saw it in my eyes: the storm clouds gathering, the dry crackle of electricity in the air. But it was already too late. No warning sirens were going to save me. I guess you never really know the danger, not until you're the one left, huddled on the ground, surrounded by the pieces of your broken heart.
It's been four years now since that summer. Since Emerson. It took everything I had to pull myself back together, to crawl out of the empty wreckage #Quote by Melody Grace
Patient quotes by Sigmund Freud
#22. We have long observed that every neurosis has the result, and therefore probably the purpose, of forcing the patient out of real life, of alienating him from actuality. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Patient quotes by Edward Forbes
#23. Who that has ever visited the borders of this classic sea, has not felt at the first sight of its waters a glow of reverent rapture akin to devotion, and an instinctive sensation of thanksgiving at being permitted to stand before these hallowed waves? All that concerns the Mediterranean is of the deepest interest to civilized man, for the history of its progress is the history of the development of the world; the memory of the great men who have lived and died around its banks; the recollection of the undying works that have come thence to delight us for ever; the story of patient research and brilliant discoveries connected with every physical phenomenon presented by its waves and currents, and with every order of creatures dwelling in and around its waters. The science of the Mediterranean is the epitome of the science of the world. #Quote by Edward Forbes
Patient quotes by Thomas Fuller
#24. Slight small injuries, and they will become none at all. #Quote by Thomas Fuller
Patient quotes by Joanne Greenberg
#25. I once had a patient who used to practice the most horrible tortures on himself, and when I asked him why he did such things, he said, 'Why, before the world does them.' I asked him then, 'Why not wait and see what the world will do?' and he said, 'Don't you see? It always come at last, but this way at least I am master of my own destruction. #Quote by Joanne Greenberg
Patient quotes by H. Burke Peterson
#26. Listening is an essential part of praying. Answers from the Lord come quietly - ever so quietly. In fact, few hear his answers audibly with their ears. We must be listening so carefully or we will never recognize them. Most answers from the Lord are felt in our heart as a warm comfortable expression, or they may come as thoughts to our mind. They come to those who are prepared and who are patient. #Quote by H. Burke Peterson
Patient quotes by Mary Pierce
#27. Sometimes things aren't clear right away. That's where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead. #Quote by Mary Pierce
Patient quotes by Joanne Harris
#28. It was one of those red-gold early October days, the air crisp and tart as heady as applejack, and even at dawn the sky was the clear, purplish blue that only the finest of autumn days brings. There are maybe three such days in a year. I sang as I lifted my traps, and my voice bounced off the misty banks of the Loire like a challenge. It was the mushroom season, so after I had brought my catch back to the farm and cleaned it out, I took some bread and cheese for breakfast and set out into the woods to hunt for mushrooms. I was always good at that. Still am, to tell the truth, but in those days I had a nose like a truffle pig's. I could smell those mushrooms out, the gray chanterelle and the orange, with its apricot scent, the bolet and the petit rose and the edible puffball and the brown-cap and the blue-cap. Mother always told us to take our mushrooms to the pharmacy to ensure we had not gathered anything poisonous, but I never made a mistake. I knew the meaty scent of the bolet and the dry, earthy smell of the brown-cap mushroom. I knew their haunts and breeding grounds. I was a patient collector. #Quote by Joanne Harris
Patient quotes by Tessa Bailey
#29. If you really want me, you need to be patient. I can't change overnight." She took a deep breath. "I know I'm a colossal pain in the ass, but try not to give up on me."

He supported her face in his hands, promises and a touch of humor in his expression. "Hey. You're my colossal pain in the ass. And I'm not going anywhere. #Quote by Tessa Bailey
Patient quotes by Sue Kelly
#30. As a former professional patient advocate, I believe prescription drugs are an essential part of high-quality medical treatment, and I supported enactment of the Medicare Prescription Drug and Modernization Act. #Quote by Sue Kelly
Patient quotes by Allan Lokos
#31. Patience lives in the gap between our experience of an event and our response to that experience. #Quote by Allan Lokos
Patient quotes by Frithjof Schuon
#32. The annoyances or adversities that come to man always have three causes: man himself, the world, God. Depending on the point of view adopted, we may take into consideration one or another of these causes, but we cannot deny any of them.
Man is the author of his misfortune to the extent it is experienced as suffering; the world is its author to the extent the misfortune seeks to keep man in cosmic illusion; and God is the Author to the extent the misfortune comes to man as a sanction, though also as a purification, hence a trial.
The same thing is true mutatis mutandis of happy events: we can never say they do not come from God or that they do not come from the cosmic surroundings or that they do not result from our own nature. These events are also trials in their character of temptation; the corresponding virtue is renunciation or detachment (zuhd). The spiritual "traveler" (sālik) should be not only "patient" (sabūr) but also "detached" (zāhid). #Quote by Frithjof Schuon
Patient quotes by Mimi Novic
#33. Everyone we meet has wounds upon their heart.
Everyone is waiting for someone to scatter the seeds of love amongst their tears and to be patient enough to wait for their beautiful fragrance of dreams to awaken once more. #Quote by Mimi Novic
Patient quotes by John Boyle O'Reilly
#34. How shall I a habit break? As you did that habit make, As you gathered, you must lose; As you yielded, now refuse, Thread by thread the strands we twist Till they bind us neck and wrist, Thread by thread the patient hand Must untwine ere free we stan #Quote by John Boyle O'Reilly
Patient quotes by Arthur W. Page
#35. Remain calm, patient, and good humored. #Quote by Arthur W. Page
Patient 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
Patient quotes by Adam Kay
#37. Tuesday, 9th Novermber 2004
Bleeped awake at 3AM from my first half hour shut-eye in three shifts to prescribe a sleeping pill to a patient whose sleep is evidently much more important than mine. My powers are greater than I realised; I arrive on the ward to find the patient is asleep. #Quote by Adam Kay
Patient quotes by Paulo Coelho
#38. Mouse was always depressed because he was afraid of cats. A great wizard took pity on him and turned him into a cat. Then he started to be afraid of dogs, and so the wizard turned him into a dog. Then he began to fear tigers. The wizard, who was very patient, used his powers to turn him into a tiger. Then he was afraid of hunters. Finally, the wizard gave up and turned him back into a mouse, saying: Nothing I do will help you, because you never understood your growth. You are better being what you always were. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Patient quotes by Florence Nightingale
#39. People say the effect is only on the mind. It is no such thing. The effect is on the body, too. Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by color, and light, we do know this, that they have an actual physical effect. Variety of form and brilliancy of color in the objects presented to patients, are actual means of recovery. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Patient quotes by Rae Foley
#40. The doctor will persist in laboring under the delusion that patients want common sense instead of magic. #Quote by Rae Foley
Patient quotes by Doris Lessing
#41. She was thinking - for, since she had been formed by literature, she could think in no other way - that all this had been described in Dickens, Tolstoy, Hugo, Dostoevsky, and a dozen others. All that noble and terrific indignation had done nothing, achieved nothing, the shout of anger from the nineteenth century might as well have been silent - for here came the file of prisoners, handcuffed two by two, and on their faces was that same immemorial look of patient, sardonic understanding. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Patient quotes by Merritt Tierce
#42. Someone told me - maybe it was the ugly one, unafraid to bash his own kind - that spine surgeons are weak among surgeons, that you can't really fix a back so you go in there and fuck around and bill the shit out of the insurance company and refer the patient to pain management. #Quote by Merritt Tierce
Patient quotes by Maya Banks
#43. I've been patient. I've let you run. But I'm not letting you run any longer. #Quote by Maya Banks
Patient quotes by Barry Lynes
#44. It is important to emphasize again and again and again that finding a cure is not the problem The cures for many cancers, if not most cancers, exist. But they are not being offered to the patient who has cancer ... Being legally permitted to use an alternative cancer therapy is the problem #Quote by Barry Lynes
Patient quotes by John Roberts
#45. There is a risk of death associated with donating a piece of liver. It's about one in 500 for the risk of death. The risk of death of donating a kidney is about one in 3000, so this is a riskier operation than donating a kidney. The stakes are usually higher for the recipient of the transplant because unlike kidney failure, where you have a dialysis machine, in liver failure we don't have that kind of machine that allows a patient to survive until they can get a cadaver organ. #Quote by John Roberts
Patient quotes by Tony Snow
#46. When politicians rush to fix things, it's a sure sign that either the intended patient is dead or fully healed. #Quote by Tony Snow
Patient quotes by Aristotle.
#47. 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.
Patient quotes by Tim LaHaye
#48. First, God doesn't count time the way we do. With the Lord, a thousand years is like one day. But more important is the reason God is waiting until the last minute to command His Son's second coming to earth. Peter says this: 'The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance. #Quote by Tim LaHaye
Patient 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
Patient quotes by E. Nesbit
#50. She had been to her Great-Aunt Willoughby's before, and she knew exactly what to expect. She would be asked about her lessons, and how many marks she had, and whether she had been a good girl. I can't think why grownup people don't see how impertinent these questions are. Suppose you were to answer:
"I'm the top of my class, auntie, thank you, and I am very good. And now let us have a little talk about you, aunt, dear. How much money have you got, and have you been scolding the servants again, or have you tried to be good and patient, as a properly brought up aunt should be, eh, dear?"
Try this method with one of your aunts next time she begins asking you questions, and write and tell me what she says. #Quote by E. Nesbit
Patient quotes by Jack Kevorkian
#51. How can you regret helping a suffering patient? #Quote by Jack Kevorkian
Patient quotes by Tyler Knott Gregson
#52. Somewhere
someone
thinks they love
someone else
exactly like
I
love you.
Somewhere
someone shakes
from the ripple
of a thousand butterflies
inside a
single stomach.
Somewhere
someone
is packing their
bags
to see the world
with someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is reaching through
the most
terrifying few
feet of space
to hold the
hand
of someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is watching
someone else's
chest
rise and fall
with the
breath
of slumber.
Somewhere
someone
is pouring
ink like blood
onto pages
fighting
to say the truth
that has
no words.
Somewhere
someone
is waiting
patient
but exhausted
to just
be
with someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is opening
their eyes
to a sunrise
in someplace
they have never
seen.
Somewhere
someone
is pulling out
the petals
twisting the
apple stem
picking up
the heads up penny
rubbing the
rabbits foot
knocking on
wood
throwing
coins into
fountains
hunting for
the only clover
with only 4 leaves
skipping over
the cracks
snapping the
wishbone
crossing their
fingers
blowing out
the candles

Patient quotes by Robert Baden-Powell
#53. "Softly, softly, catchee monkey," is the West African rendering of a very valuable precept. An awful lot of men fail through lack of patient persistence. #Quote by Robert Baden-Powell
Patient quotes by David Ogilvy
#54. 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
Patient quotes by Joe Murray
#56. Post-operatively the transplanted kidney functioned immediately with a dramatic improvement in the patient's renal and cardiopulmonary status. #Quote by Joe Murray
Patient quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#57. We must be ever courteous and patient with those who do not see eye to eye with us. We must resolutely refuse to consider our opponents as enemies. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Patient quotes by Booker T. Washington
#58. Those who have accomplished the greatest results are those ... who never grow excited or lose self-control, but are always calm, self-possessed, patient and polite. #Quote by Booker T. Washington
Patient quotes by Bruce Kovner
#59. 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
Patient 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
Patient quotes by Laurie Glimcher
#61. The key to HIV/AIDS was to say let's give a patient multiple different therapies at the same time and that makes the virus much less likely to mutate. #Quote by Laurie Glimcher
Patient quotes by Warwick Middleton
#62. It's been very interesting over the years just how many of those psychiatrists that were openly incredulous and dismissive have become stalwart admitants to the [trauma and dissociation] unit. In fact I can remember one psychiatrist ... this is going back more than a decade and a half ... it says something about the ambivalence about this area ... who rang me saying he doesn't believe that DID exists but nevertheless he's got a patient with it that he'd like to refer. That's called Psychiatrist Multiple Reality Disorder.

Patient quotes by Ben Hewitt
#63. Many parents aren't all that accustomed to being patient and present for their kids anymore, if only because they're simply not given the opportunity to be patient and present. Jobs get in the way. School gets in the way. After-school activities get in the way. As I have learned - as I am still learning - patience and presence are muscles that must be developed and exercised regularly. #Quote by Ben Hewitt
Patient quotes by Sally Brampton
#64. This is not really me. I am not like this. I am like you. I am not a patient from a mental hospital. I am just an ordinary woman whose mind has gone temporarily wrong. #Quote by Sally Brampton
Patient quotes by Julia Klatt Singer
#65. Tsundoku

(Japanese) Buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up on shelves or floors or nightstands.

My parents used to joke about making furniture out of them; instead of being coffee table books, they could be the coffee table. Ditto on nightstands, counters, roofs. When we were kids, my brother and I, teased about always reading, built a wall. Right through the middle of the neighborhood, protected ourselves with fiction and with facts. I loved the encyclopedias best; the weight of them, how my grandmother made me walk with one on my head to practice being a lady. It wasn't until college that I built a grand stairway out of them; their glossy blue jackets looked like marble in the moonlight. I climbed it, to the top of the wall. Peering over, I found you, on the other side, alone in your bed, asleep. That was the first time you dreamed me. In your dream, you told me not to jump. But to be patient. (We were young then, it would be years before we'd meet) and then this morning, I found you in my bedroom. In your hands, How to Rope and Tie a Steer, a mug of coffee, a piece of slightly burned toast. I took The Sun Also Rises from the wall, made the first window into your heart. #Quote by Julia Klatt Singer
Patient quotes by Hamilton Wright Mabie
#66. All the queens of my acquaintance have children, some three, some seven, and some as many as twelve; and my queen has not one. I feel ill-used." So he made up his mind to be cross with his wife about it. But she bore it all like a good patient queen as she was. #Quote by Hamilton Wright Mabie
Patient quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#67. Cam paused, staring down at her with dilated eyes, the irises bright gold rims around circles of fathomless midnight. "Amelia, love…" His kiss tasted of salt and intimacy. "Can you take a little more of me?"
She fought to think above the confusion of pleasure, and shook her head jerkily.
The corners of his lips deepened with a smile. He whispered, "I think you can."
His hands played over her, solicitous fingertips sliding to the place they were joined. He pressed inside her, a low rhythmic movement, and his fingers were astonishingly gentle, almost delicate, as they stroked in time to the patient thrusts. Gasping, she arched to take him deeper, and deeper still.
Every time he pushed, his body rubbed hers in exactly the right way. She began to lift eagerly, anticipating each invasion, panting for it, sensation building on sensation until it culminated in a blinding swell of delight … and another … another … she felt him begin to withdraw and she moaned and twined her legs around his hips.
"Amelia," he gasped, "no, let me … I've got to…" Shuddering, he spent helplessly inside her, while her body gripped and stroked the hard length of him.
Still locked together, Cam rolled Amelia to her side. He muttered something in Romany. Although she didn't understand a word, it sounded highly complimentary. Limp with pleasure and exhaustion, Amelia rested her head on the solid curve of his biceps, her breath catching as she felt the occasional twitch and #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Patient quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#68. I always imagined that you might write something about me. I wanted to leave an imprint on your life. I don't want to be "just another patient". I wanted to be "special". I want to be something, anything. I feel like nothing, no one. If I left an imprint on your life, maybe I would be someone, someone you wouldn't forget. I'd exist then. (Marge's letter to Yalom) #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Patient quotes by Webb Simpson
#69. I felt the Lord telling me just to be patient all year. Whether it happened this year, next, or never, everything was going to be okay. #Quote by Webb Simpson
Patient quotes by Carol O'Connell
#70. In my view, madness is a place. You go. You come back. And I think we all take turns being the mental patient. Without a touch of crazy, literature can be a desolate place. In the current climate of careful speech, even fearful speech, smoke-free film scripts, thought-free songs, and child-proof locks on American minds, the oft-repeated lament of the arts is "Where have all those wonderful madmen gone?" #Quote by Carol O'Connell
Patient quotes by Virginia Postrel
#71. The United States government approaches patient choice in medication as Singapore does free speech: its pronouncements sound reasonable and tolerant until you threaten its prerogatives. #Quote by Virginia Postrel
Patient quotes by Louise Penny
#72. One of the elders told him that when he was a boy his grandfather came to him one day and said he had two wolves fighting inside him. One was gray, the other black. The gray one wanted his grandfather to be courageous, and patient, and kind. The other, the black one, wanted his grandfather to be fearful and cruel. This upset the boy, and he thought about it for a few days then returned to his grandfather. He asked, 'Grandfather, which of the wolves will win?'
The abbot smiled slightly and examined the Chief Inspector. 'Do you know what his grandfather said?'
Gamache shook his head ...
'The one I feed,' said Dom Philippe. #Quote by Louise Penny
Patient 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
Patient quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#74. But I do know that about ten times as many people find their lives dull, and unnecessarily dull, as ever admit it; and I do believe that if we busted out and admitted it sometimes, instead of being nice and patient and loyal for sixty years, and then nice and patient and dead for the rest of eternity, why, maybe, possibly, we might make life more fun. #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
Patient quotes by Ivan Goncharov
#75. Ah! This is retribution for Promethean fire! Besides being patient, you must also love this sadness and respect your doubts and questions. They are an abundant excess, a luxury of life, and they appear more at the summits of happiness, when you have no crude desires. They are not born in the midst of mundanity. They have no place where there is grief and want. The masses go along without knowing the fog of doubts or the anguish of questions. But for anyone who has encountered them at the right time they are dear visitors, not a hammer.'

'But there's no coping with them. They bring anguish and indifference to nearly everything.' she added indecisively.

'But for how long? Afterward they refresh life,' he said. 'They lead to an abyss from which nothing can be gained, and they force you to look again at life, with even greater love. They summon up your tested powers to struggle with it, as if expressly to let them sleep afterward.'

'This fog and these specters torment me!' she complained. 'Everything is bright and all of a sudden a sinister shadow is cast over life! Are there no means against this?'

'What do you mean? Your buttress is in life! Without it, life is sickening, even without any questions!'

p. 508 #Quote by Ivan Goncharov
Patient quotes by Judy Melinek
#76. (I)f you try to treat the medical problem you *think* you see without fully exploring the differential diagnosis -- call(ed) "speculation on a foundation of assumption" -- you can kill your patient. #Quote by Judy Melinek
Patient quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#77. The journey of unknown is life journey of graduate students. There are many mountains to be overcome. With hope, patient and courage you can soar high above the mountains and achieve your goals. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Patient quotes by Stephen King
#78. It was a table that could seat six, but Ben was the only one there. She had never seen Ben with any of the other boys. It was too bad, because she believed Ben Hanscom had treasures buried inside. He would yield them up to a kind and patient prospector...if one ever came along. #Quote by Stephen King
Patient quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#79. What would you call this patient – schizophrenic or schizoaffective?" He paused and stroked his chin, apparently in deep thought. "I think I'd call him Michael McIntyre," he replied. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Patient quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#80. I was so sad for the children. I was so angry and irritable at home. It took nothing for me to tell Heidi off, nothing to shout at her. And Vanja, Vanja ... When she had her bouts of defiance and not only said no to everything but also shouted and screamed and punched, I shouted back, grabbed her and threw her onto the bed. I was completely out of control. Then came the remorse afterwards, the attempts to be patient, kind, nice, friendly, good. Good. And that was what I wanted to be, all I wanted to be, to be a good father to the three of them.
Wasn't I a good father? #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard

Patient quotes by Leeza Gibbons
#83. Caring for an Alzheimer's patient is a situation that can utterly consume the lives and well-being of the people giving care, just as the disorder consumes its victims. #Quote by Leeza Gibbons
Patient quotes by Sherry Stringfield
#84. I'm a terrible patient, and I find that doctors can be very condescending. #Quote by Sherry Stringfield
Patient quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#85. We can drink soup with a fork, it will only take long time! As long as we are patient, we can drink it even with a tiny pin! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Patient quotes by Stanley Unwin
#86. To write books is easy, it requires only pen and ink and the ever-patient paper. To print books is a little more difficult, because genius so often rejoices in illegible handwriting. To read books is more difficult still, because of a tendency to go to sleep. But the most difficult task of all that
a mortal man can embark on is to sell a book. #Quote by Stanley Unwin
Patient quotes by Kobe Bryant
#87. You just stay patient, that's all. #Quote by Kobe Bryant
Patient quotes by Michael Lewis
#88. Once very smart people are paid huge sums of money to exploit the flaws in the financial system, they have the spectacularly destructive incentive to screw the system up further, or to remain silent as they watch it being screwed up by others. The cost, in the end, is a tangled-up financial system. Untangling it requires acts of commercial heroism - and even then the fix might not work. There was simply too much more easy money to be made by elites if the system worked badly than if it worked well. The whole culture had to want to change. "We know how to cure this," as Brad had put it. "It's just a matter of whether the patient wants to be treated. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Patient quotes by Elizabeth Montagu
#89. I endeavor to be wise when I cannot be merry, easy when I cannot be glad, content with what cannot be mended and patient when there be no redress. #Quote by Elizabeth Montagu

Patient quotes by Morgan Matson
#91. In all the medical dramas I'd ever seen, there was always some solution, some last-minute, miraculously undiscovered remedy. Nobody ever just gave up on a patient. But it seemed like in real life, they did. #Quote by Morgan Matson
Patient quotes by John Zande
#92. Is this not precisely how the universe should look if fantasied by a defiled overmind? Is this not exactly how the universe should be presented if shaped by the careful hand of pure but unforgivingly patient malevolence? Who but the immaculate embodiment of malice would design such a contemptible thing? Indeed, is not the vulgarity of scale proof of an Omnimalevolent Creator, greater even than the finely tuned universe itself? Only a thoroughly corrupted, wicked mind could conceive of such impossible proportions and be in possession of the boorish inclination needed to then dangle such an offense to all reasonableness in front of the eyes of a curious explorer - a tiny, living, thinking organic vessel whom through tuning and coercion the Creator had ensured would one day rise to stare out longingly from the shores of their home-world prison. #Quote by John Zande
Patient quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#93. My task as a therapist (not unlike that of a parent) is to make myself obsolete - to help a patient become his or her own mother and father #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Patient quotes by Laura Ingalls Wilder
#94. He knew you could never teach an animal anything if you struck it, or even shouted at it angrily. He must always be gentle, and quiet, and patient, even when they made mistakes. Star #Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Patient quotes by Mark Epstein
#95. It is always true to say when reviewing one of this patient's sessions that if she could scream she would be well," wrote Winnicott. "The great non-event of every session is screaming."6 The Burmese master who counseled Sharon was making much the same point. In encouraging her to cry her heart out, he was countering her inclination to make crying the "great non-event" of every meditation session. Like the Burmese teacher, Winnicott felt that if his patient could cry her heart out, her psyche would grow. #Quote by Mark Epstein
Patient quotes by Suzy Kassem
#96. Always praise your kid even if he/she is unresponsive to learning. By insulting them and putting them down, you will only push them away and make them feel inadequate around other kids. Have faith that your child's brain is an evolving planet that rotates at its own speed. It will naturally be attracted to or repel certain subjects. Be patient. Just as there are ugly ducklings that turn into swans, there are rebellious kids that turn into serious innovators and hardcore intellectuals. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Patient quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke

Patient quotes by Charles C. Mann
#100. Scientists have established huge numbers of links between particular diseases and snippets of DNA, but in the great majority of cases, this has not yet been translated into treatments that can help cure patients. These treatments will come - tomorrow, or the day after. #Quote by Charles C. Mann
Patient quotes by Charles Bukowski

Patient quotes by Ernest Hemingway
#102. He watched Richard Gordon lurching down the street until he was out of sight in the shadow from the big trees whose branches dipped down to grow into the ground like roots. What he was thinking as he watched him was not pleasant. It is a mortal sin, he thought, a grave and deadly sin and a great cruelty, and while technically one's religion may permit the ultimate result, I cannot pardon myself. On the other hand, a surgeon cannot desist while operating for fear of hurting the patient. But why must, all operations in life be performed with out an anesthetic? If I had been a better man I would have let him beat me up. It would have been better for him. The poor stupid man. The poor homeless man. I ought to stay with him, but I know that is too much for him to bear. I am ashamed and disgusted with myself and I hate what I have done. It all may turn out badly too. But I must not think about that. I will now return to the anesthetic I have used for seventeen years and will not need much longer. Although it is probably a vice now for which I only invent excuses. Though at least it is a vice for which I am suited. But I wish I could help that poor man who I am wronging. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway
Patient quotes by Lynda Resnick
#103. When people affected by epilepsy are reluctant to expose their condition, the public remains in the dark about it - a tragic irony that has made patient care and raising funds for research more than challenging. #Quote by Lynda Resnick
Patient quotes by Martha Beck
#104. A designated patient 'carries' the group's dysfunction. A designated issue performs the same service for an individual, dominating our psyches so that other troubles can go unnoticed. #Quote by Martha Beck

Patient quotes by Ezekiel Emanuel
#107. Patients who are being kept alive by technology and want to end their lives already have a recognized constitutional right to stop any and all medical interventions, from respirators to antibiotics. They do not need physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia. #Quote by Ezekiel Emanuel
Patient quotes by Charity Shumway
#108. We get so used to thinking success means on thing,' she said. 'Like you can take a snapshot and see if you have it. It's not like that. It's your whole life, and you have years and years to work with. I always wants to tell young people, don't be so hard on yourself. Life is long. Be patient. #Quote by Charity Shumway
Patient quotes by Paul David Tripp
#109. The Bible doesn't tell you that he abounds in anger, but it is quick to reassure you that he is abounding in love. Be thankful today that God is not like us, because if he were, you and I would be damned. Be thankful that he is incredibly patient and eternally kind. Be thankful that he is tender, gentle, and gracious. Be thankful that he does not treat you as your sins deserve. Be thankful that because of the work of Jesus, he will respond to you with lovingkindness even on your worst day. "The LORD is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, forgiving iniquity and transgression" (Num. 14:18). #Quote by Paul David Tripp

Patient quotes by Shelby Harris
#111. Some patients are still having insomnia, but it's seems worse to them than actually it is. So, if they say they're sleep deprived, they haven't slept at all in three days; if we actually take them into a lab, most of the time we actually do see they're sleeping on and off here and there. #Quote by Shelby Harris
Patient quotes by Alyssa Day
#112. Friends and family argue and fight, but it means nothing. It's human nature. Love isn't perfectly patient or kind or sunny. Love is volatile and tempestuous and forgiving. #Quote by Alyssa Day
Patient quotes by Debra Anastasia
#113. She'd made the best decision of her life when she convinced the easy-going David that, yes, he really did want to take her on a date. One year later they were inseparable.
He would make a patient, persistent father. He clearly adored Eve, but he also refused to put up with any of her drama. They solved their problems in quiet, respectful voices. Even Eve's father had seemed convinced that Eve and David would be together until they were old and forgetful. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
Patient quotes by Stuart M. Goldman
#114. The majority of people living with chronic pain have the symptoms attributed to conditions that are not fully understood, including Spinal Stenosis, Fibromyalgia, Diabetic Neuropathy, Arthritis, and Restless Leg Syndrome. These diagnoses provide a label allowing the patient to be classified and guiding physicians to treat, but often do not reflect the true cause of symptoms. Using approaches presented in Walking Well Again, both patients and clinicians are guided to recognizing and treating the hidden causes of pain, which often results in relief in just one or two days. #Quote by Stuart M. Goldman
Patient quotes by Liz Faublas
#115. Be patient" does not mean relax and stop working. Your time is coming but in the meantime, keep building! #Quote by Liz Faublas
Patient quotes by William Osler
#116. The doctor who treats himself has a fool for a patient. #Quote by William Osler
Patient quotes by Christopher G. Nuttall
#117. Do not confuse "duty" with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfil obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect. -Robert A. Heinlein #Quote by Christopher G. Nuttall
Patient quotes by George Eliot
#118. After all, people may really have in them some vocation which is not quite plain to themselves, may they not? They may seem idle and weak because they are growing. We should be very patient with each other, I think. #Quote by George Eliot
Patient quotes by Henry Parry Liddon
#119. The life of man is made up of action and endurance; the life is fruitful in the ratio in which it is laid out in noble action or in patient perseverance. #Quote by Henry Parry Liddon
Patient quotes by Timothy Keller
#120. While we want doubts to give way to faith, we should be merciful and patient with those who are still in a doubt-troubled place. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Patient quotes by Shelby Harris
#121. So, it's not every patient that I see, but I'd say a good 70% to 80% of the patients when they go to bed it's like a stereo is playing at an 11 or 12 and they can't turn it down, at all. So it makes it very hard for their body to down regulate to be able to go to bed at night. #Quote by Shelby Harris
Patient quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#122. Impatience has ruined many crowns; it had lured people to give up when they have just few minute to win, just few millimeters to touch the winning carpet! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Patient quotes by Elizabeth F. Howell
#123. Patients with complex trauma may at times develop extreme reactions to something the therapist has said or not said, done or not done. It is wise to anticipate this in advance, and perhaps to note this anticipation in initial communications with the patient. For example, one may say something like, "It is likely in our work together, there will be a time or times when you will feel angry with me, disappointed with me, or that I have failed you. We should except this and not be surprised if and when it happens, which it probably will." It is also vital to emphasize to the patient that despite the diagnosis and experience of dividedness, the whole person is responsible and will be held responsible for the acts of any part. p174 #Quote by Elizabeth F. Howell
Patient quotes by Carrot Quinn
#124. I love you", says the doug-fir. "I love you so much." I can feel the tree there, the tree underneath me the tree all
around me, the tree inside of me. The trees holding each other holding the soil holding me. The trees more patient than
anything, save the ocean. The trees with the long view. I can feel their pity- "Little mammal", they say, "with your two legs.
Running around saying Where Do I Belong. Making value judgments on the wind, the flowers in the springtime, the
shapes of the stars. Little mammal with your trembling heart. I am your home and I love you and I will always be here. #Quote by Carrot Quinn
Patient quotes by Amy Hoggart
#125. The thing with cancer is that it's usually the chemo rather than the disease itself that makes the patient feel so ill, particularly at the start. #Quote by Amy Hoggart
Patient quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#126. Tillich says about grace: "It happens; or it does not happen. And certainly it does not happen if we try to force it upon ourselves." This stuck with me. "Grace happens. Grace happens." In other words, be patient, be strong, keep going, and let grace come when it can. #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton

Patient quotes by Mehreen Ahmed
#129. If one were to typify a place, then these are snapshots that need to be captured. Brazen realities frozen in time; progress impeded because of a tradition of cultural sloth. The world goes by without a moment's reproach and I retire for the day; however, a line drones mindlessly in paradox.

"Let us go then, you and I, when the evening is spread out against the sky, like a patient etherized on a table (The Love-Song of J. Alfred Prufrock T.S Eliot, 1920)."

Splendidly juxtaposed, I chuckle."

Patient quotes by Liberty Hyde Bailey
#130. A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. #Quote by Liberty Hyde Bailey
Patient quotes by Dean Kamen
#131. I think in our lifetime, that level of acceptance of "well, we couldn't do any better," won't be tolerated. We're going to start to see individual therapies customized for individual patients, and it's going to change the way people get healthcare. #Quote by Dean Kamen
Patient quotes by William Styron
#132. In depression this faith in deliverance, in ultimate restoration, is absent. The pain is unrelenting, and what makes the condition intolerable is the foreknowledge that no remedy will come- not in a day, an hour, a month, or a minute. If there is mild relief, one knows that it is only temporary; more pain will follow. It is hopelessness even more than pain that crushes the soul. So the decision-making of daily life involves not, as in normal affairs, shifting from one annoying situation to another less annoying- or from discomfort to relative comfort, or from boredom to activity- but moving from pain to pain. One does not abandon, even briefly, one's bed of nails, but is attached to it wherever one goes. And this results in a striking experience- one which I have called, borrowing military terminology, the situation of the walking wounded. For in virtually any other serious sickness, a patient who felt similar devistation would by lying flat in bed, possibly sedated and hooked up to the tubes and wires of life-support systems, but at the very least in a posture of repose and in an isolated setting. His invalidism would be necessary, unquestioned and honorably attained. However, the sufferer from depression has no such option and therefore finds himself, like a walking casualty of war, thrust into the most intolerable social and family situations. There he must, despite the anguish devouring his brain, present a face approximating the one that is associated with ordinary event #Quote by William Styron
Patient quotes by Steven Price

Patient quotes by Colin Cotterill
#134. More panic. More emergencies and disasters. Soon, emergencies fell into a sort of natural ranking: drop-everything emergencies, do-what-you-can emergencies, and you'll just-have-to-wait emergencies. Disasters, too, had their own ratings: unavoidable, did-the-best-we-could, my fault/your fault. Then there were godlike moments when a decision had to be made as to who most deserved to die. By the afternoon of her second day, Dtui wondered whether her heart had shrunk. She felt less. People had become less human. Death had become less of a tragedy. Her patients weren't blacksmiths or housewives, they were percentages. "With this little skill and this little pharmaceutical backup, this patient - let's call her number seven - has a forty percent chance of survival." It amazed and saddened her that, in order to do her job properly, she had to stop caring. #Quote by Colin Cotterill
Patient quotes by Ron Paul

Patient quotes by Michael Crichton
#136. We have created a man with not one brain but two ... This new brain is intended to control the biological brain ... The patient's biological brain is the peripheral terminal
the only peripheral terminal
for the new computer ... And therefore the patient's biological brain, indeed his whole body, has become a terminal for the new computer. We have created a man who is one single, large, complex computer terminal. The patient is a read-out device for the new computer, and is helpless to control the readout as a TV screen is helpless to control the information presented on it. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Patient quotes by Shannon L. Alder

Patient quotes by Lee Harris
#138. You will not always be joyous every moment of everyday, but you will never again feel the pit as quite so dark, quite so helpless, for you have identified who you are and you have found your hearts. That is a great gift both for you and the world.

Be patient with your hearts. Be patient with yourselves. It will not always be a sunny day, but it can always be a beautiful day. And you can always find the beauty in a day even if it is in the 24th hour. Remember that. Remember your connection. You have this connection now. Use it. It is your access. Why would you deny yourself this? Simply open your heart and ask for help if you are feeling lonely or in struggle. Open your heart and ask for love to enter it and it will. It truly will. #Quote by Lee Harris
Patient quotes by Oliver Sacks
#139. There is among doctors, in acute hospitals at least, a presumption of stupidity in their patients. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Patient quotes by Leslie Jamison
#140. In Madame Bovary, Félicité the maid is always scuttling away from some new abuse at the hands of her self-involved mistress. She seeks sweetness as consolation: "since Madame always left the key in the sideboard, Félicité took a small supply of sugar every night and ate it when she was all alone in her bed, after she had said her prayers." How could sugar still be necessary after prayer? It offers salve to the physical body, immediate comfort, something the flesh can trust while the spirit is being patient. Think of the sadness of two women living in the same house, both hungry for stolen increments of different pleasures - text and lust and sugar - both keeping these pleasures secret because they are ashamed to admit their hungers. #Quote by Leslie Jamison
Patient quotes by Terry Pratchett
#141. Nanny just tended to put a hot poultice on everything and recommend a large glass of whatever the patient liked best on the basis that since you were going to be ill anyway you might as well get some enjoyment out of it. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Patient quotes by Michael Pearl
#142. There was no hastiness or anger in his response. He did not take the disobedience personally. He had trained many horses and mules and knew the value of patient perseverance. In the end, the twelve-month-old submitted his will to his father, sat as he was placed, and became content - even cheerful. He was now ready to quietly sit through three hours of the most boring church service a sleeping patriarch ever attended. #Quote by Michael Pearl
Patient quotes by Taylor Jenkins Reid
#143. When you lose someone you love, it's hard to imagine that you'll ever feel better. That, one day, you'll manage to be in a good mood simply because the weather is nice or the barista at the coffee shop on the corner remembered your order.

But it does happen.

If you're patient and you work at it. #Quote by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Patient quotes by Richard Dawkins
#144. There is bound to be variation in the population of males in their predisposition to be faithful husbands. If females could recognize such qualities in advance, they could benefit themselves by choosing males possessing them. One way for a female to do this is to play hard to get for a long time, to be coy. Any male who is not patient enough to wait until the female eventually consents to copulate is not likely to be a good bet as a faithful husband. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Patient quotes by Dan Fouts
#145. When you work with a legend as I do, it's wonderful. There's so many things I've learned working with Keith. He's so patient, not only with me, but with everyone in our crew and with the audience and with the game. He has a style that is so easy and will never be copied. #Quote by Dan Fouts
Patient quotes by Patrick Soon-Shiong
#146. You'd believe that a patient with hypertension, if you know you have hypertension or diabetes, you would take your drug every day. The compliance rate is more like 30% or 40%. Which means that 60% of patients don't take their drugs, and they actually go into these crises, end up in the hospital. #Quote by Patrick Soon-Shiong

Patient quotes by Georg Trakl
#148. In an old family album
Ever again you return, Melancholy,
O meekness of the solitary soul.
A golden day glows and expires.
Humbly the patient man surrenders to pain
Ringing with melodious sound and soft madness.
Look! There's the twilight.
Night returns once more and a mortal thing laments
And another suffers in sympathy.
Shuddering under autumn stars
Yearly the head is bowed deeper.
-Georg Trakl (1887-1914) #Quote by Georg Trakl
Patient quotes by Dan Rather
#149. By more than two to one Americans do not consider what Kevorkian did, injecting a terminally ill patient with legal drugs at the patient's request, to be the same as murder. You may want to note that laws are not supposed to be enforced on the basis of public opinion polls. #Quote by Dan Rather
Patient quotes by V.S. Ramachandran
#150. 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.

#154. Note to self
Love is patient; love is kind.
Love doesn't boast or brag.
There's no arrogance in love;
it's never rude, crude, or indecent-it's not self absorbed.
Love isn't easily upset.
Love doesn't tally wrongs.
Love trusts, hopes, and endures no matter what.
Love will never become obsolete.
I'll fight for her.

Patient quotes by Dennis Mccullough
#157. 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
Patient quotes by James 1 24
#158. My brothers and sisters, you will have many kinds of trouble. But this gives you a reason to be very happy. You know that when your faith is tested, you learn to be patient in suffering.

Patient quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#160. 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

Patient quotes by Beth Pattillo
#162. I'm quiet for a long moment, and Velva just sits with me, waiting. She's good at that. Just being a companion, not pushing or prodding, but waiting as if she has all the time in the world. Why is it that a woman of 94, who probably has very little time left, can be far more patient that an woman of 30 who has a lot of years ahead of her? #Quote by Beth Pattillo
Patient quotes by Bessie Head
#163. That is, adoration was patient and waiting while love or, if you liked, plain sexual passion banged everything about. It either shouted or thought it knew too much, and it had always left him cold and had not involved his heart. Therefore, if he wanted to get involved now it would be on his own terms and at his own pace. #Quote by Bessie Head

Patient quotes by Florence Nightingale
#167. 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

Patient quotes by Arthur W. Pink
#169. Nothing but a miracle of grace can lead to the saving of any sinner. Oh, my reader, be not deceived on this vital matter; to mortify the lusts of the flesh, to be crucified unto the world, to overcome the Devil, to die daily unto sin and live unto righteousness, to be meek and lowly in heart, trustful and obedient, pious and patient, faithful and uncompromising, loving and gentle; in a word, to be a Christian, to be Christ-like, is a task far, far beyond the poor resources of fallen human nature. #Quote by Arthur W. Pink
Patient quotes by Ossian Everett Mills

Patient quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
#171. God's guidance will require patience on our part. His leading is not usually a direct assurance, a revelation, but His sovereign controlling of the circumstances of our lives, with the Word of God as our rule. It is therefore, inevitable that the unfolding of His purposes will take time - sometimes a very long time. #Quote by Sinclair B. Ferguson
Patient quotes by John Owen
#172. To the sick man the physician when he enters seems to have three faces, those of a man, a devil, a god. When the physician first comes and announces the safety of the patient, then the sick man says: Behold a God or a guardian angel! #Quote by John Owen
Patient quotes by John Fante
#173. All that was good in me thrilled in my heart at that moment, all that I hoped for in the profound, obscure meaning of my existence. Here was the endlessly mute placidity of nature, indifferent to the great city; here was the desert beneath these streets, around these streets, waiting for the city to die, to cover it with timeless sand once more. There came over me a terrifying sense of understanding about the meaning and the pathetic destiny of men. The desert was always there, a patient white animal, waiting for men to die, for civilizations to flicker and pass into the darkness. Then men seemed brave to me, and I was proud to be numbered among them. All the evil of the world seemed not evil at all, but inevitable and good and part of that endless struggle to keep the desert down. #Quote by John Fante
Patient quotes by Anna Benson
#174. But marriage goes in waves. You've got to be patient. People bail and give up on their marriages way too early. They just don't put the work and the effort into it. You've got to suck up your ego a lot of times, because that can be a big downfall. #Quote by Anna Benson
Patient quotes by Heikki Kovalainen
#175. In golf, you have to stay patient and calm. On the race track you can let loose, but in golf you can't and you must be calm. #Quote by Heikki Kovalainen
Patient quotes by Ann McElhinney
#176. Gosnell turned almost no one away from the Women's Medical Society clinic. This is not meant as a compliment. Repentant Gosnell employee Adrienne Moton testified he would perform abortions on any girls or women with no concern about the age of their babies. The only times she could recall Gosnell refusing to perform an abortion was when somebody's Social Security number couldn't be verified. In those cases, Gosnell was worried that the "patient" was an undercover cop. #Quote by Ann McElhinney
Patient quotes by Rajneesh
#177. Why is it so? If live is a gift, all that belongs to and is intrinsic to life is going to be a gift. You can wait for it, you can be receptive to it, you can remain in a surrendered mood, waiting, patient, but you cannot demand, and you cannot force. #Quote by Rajneesh
Patient quotes by Christian Adam Ribeiraud
#178. History is the most patient of teachers. If Man doesn't get the lesson, it keeps repeating itself until he finally gets it. #Quote by Christian Adam Ribeiraud
Patient quotes by Nicholas Tucker
#179. Don Quixote could never manage without his patient servant Sancho Panza. #Quote by Nicholas Tucker
Patient quotes by Arthur Frederick Saunders
#180. The best practitioners give to their patients the least medicine. #Quote by Arthur Frederick Saunders
Patient quotes by Milton H. Erickson
#181. Don't ask why the patient is the way he is, ask for what he would change. #Quote by Milton H. Erickson
Patient quotes by Umar
#182. Be patient; patience is a pillar of faith. #Quote by Umar
Patient quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#183. Her face became tougher and leaner, the face Cara-vaggio would meet later. She was thin, mostly from tiredness. She was always hungry and found it a furious exhaustion to feed a patient who couldn't eat or didn't want to, watching the bread crumble away, the soup cool, which she desired to swallow fast. She wanted nothing exotic, just bread, meat. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Patient quotes by Atul Gawande
#184. When I saw him three months later, he was still despondent. "I feel as if a part of my body is missing. I feel as if I have been dismembered," he told me. His voice cracked and his eyes were rimmed red. He had one great solace, however: that she hadn't suffered, that she'd got to spend her last few weeks in peace at home in the warmth of their long love, instead of up on a nursing floor, a lost and disoriented patient. * #Quote by Atul Gawande
Patient quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#185. The physician's duty is not to stave off death or return patients to their old lives, but to take into our arms a patient and family whose lives have disintegrated and work until they can stand back up and face, and make sense of, their own existence. #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Patient quotes by Plato
#186. The physician of the soul is aware that his patient will receive no nourishment unless he has been cleaned out; and the soul of the Great King himself, if he has not undergone this purification, is unclean and impure. #Quote by Plato
Patient quotes by A. J. McLean
#187. Be very, very patient and very open-minded, and listen to what people have to say. #Quote by A. J. McLean
Patient quotes by Philip Pullman
#188. He meant the Kingdom was over, the Kingdom of Heaven, it was all finished. We shouldn't live as if it mattered more than this life in this world, because where we are is always the most important place ... We have to be all those difficult things like cheerful and kind and curious and patient, and we've got to study and think and work hard, all of us, in all our different world, and then we'll build ... The Republic of Heaven. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Patient quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#189. I'm sorry. I was just thinking of that stupid song, 'Seasons in the Sun.' You know, 'we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.' Good grief, I should be a mental patient. (Cassandra)
You have more strength than any warrior I have known. Don't ever apologize to me again for those few times when you show your fear to me, Cassandra. (Wulf) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Patient quotes by Jenny Downham
#190. Nurses never tell you what they know. They're hired for their cheeriness and the thickness of their hair. They need to look alive and healthy, to give the patients something to aim for. #Quote by Jenny Downham
Patient quotes by Heinz Kohut
#191. If there is one lesson that I have learned during my life as an analyst, it is the lesson that what my patients tell me is likely to be true - that many times when I believed that I was right and my patients were wrong, it turned out, though often only after a prolonged search, that my rightness was superficial whereas their rightness was profound. #Quote by Heinz Kohut
Patient quotes by Bryan Penberthy
#192. It could be the sound of each name he knows/curling to ash in his chest's aortic furnace one after another, year after year instructing him/in the patient work of letting go. Even still/there are things it is reluctant to unclasp./How the Osage orange trunks and bare limbs/glow in the scattered light like veins of fire. #Quote by Bryan Penberthy
Patient quotes by David Lloyd-Jones
#193. There is nothing which so certifies the genuineness of a man's faith as his patience and his patient endurance, his keeping on steadily in spite of everything. #Quote by David Lloyd-Jones
Patient quotes by Helen Garner
#194. On Melbourne summer mornings the green trams go rolling in stately progress down tunnels thick with leaves: the bright air carries along the avenue their patient chime, the chattering of their wheels #Quote by Helen Garner
Patient quotes by Andrea Lochen
#195. It was a lesson she was still learning. When she had first started nursing, she had taken every death personally, like she was losing her father all over again. Every patient lost under her care was a little piece of death she would carry around with her until the end of her own life. But the alternative seemed so unfeeling. Tina and the other nurses could crack jokes and banter back and forth about contestants on American Idol before the body of a deceased patient was even cold. It was a coping mechanism, she knew, but not necessarily one she thought she would ever adopt. There had to be something in between. Olive had been called a bleeding heart before, but her heart no longer had the same plasticity and tenderness - it was scarred and worn beyond repair #Quote by Andrea Lochen
Patient quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#196. Maybe I'll try to be more patient with morons. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Patient quotes by Ethel Lynn Beers
#197. Only a mother's heart can be
Patient enough for such as he. #Quote by Ethel Lynn Beers
Patient quotes by T. S. Eliot
#198. They know and do not know, that acting is suffering
And suffering is action. Neither does the actor suffer
Nor the patient act. But both are fixed
To an eternal action, an eternal patience
To which all must consent that it may be willed
And which all must suffer that they may will it,
That the pattern may subsist, for the pattern is the action
And the suffering, that the wheel may turn and still
Be forever still. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Patient quotes by George W. Merck
#199. We try to remember that medicine is for the patient. We try never to forget that medicine is for the people. It is not for the profits. The profits follow, and if we have remembered that, they have never failed to appear. The better we have remembered it, the larger they have been, #Quote by George W. Merck
Patient quotes by Jim Butcher
#200. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love always forgives, trusts, supports, and endures. Love never fails. When every star in the heavens grows cold, and when silence lies once more on the face of the deep, three things will endure: faith, hope, and love. #Quote by Jim Butcher
