Terminal Illness quotes by Esther Perel
#1. Because I believe that some good can come out of the crisis of infidelity, I have often been asked, "So, would you recommend an affair to a struggling couple?" My response? A lot of people have positive, life-changing experiences that come along with terminal illness. But I would not recommend having an affair than I would recommend getting cancer. #Quote by Esther Perel
Terminal Illness quotes by Stellah Mupanduki
#2. There is complete hope for terminal illness in the power of the Almighty God. The hands of Jesus are healing hands...the hands of Jesus are saving hands. Jesus brought peace and restoration, reconciliation, power, purpose, love, understading, purity and compatibility with him and the world we live in. we are healed through him. He mends brokenness and gives us back our lives which are stollen by the trials and suffering of this dark world. He is the light and life giving God. We ought to pray in our daily lives to receive from God, his help, upholding power and healing in the Name of Jesus Christ his one and only Son. When we ask from him...then we receive healing, relief from suffering, we stop living in fear of death. Read these books and experience the real presence of the supernatural, almighty sovereign and loving God. #Quote by Stellah Mupanduki
Terminal Illness quotes by Pauline Boss
#3. From those women I also learned that a terminal illness is less distressful when it is attributed to the natural cycle of life rather than to failure. The secret to coping with the pain of an uncertain loss, regardless of culture or personal beliefs, is to avoid feeling helpless. This is accomplished by working to change what we can and accepting what we cannot. #Quote by Pauline Boss
Terminal Illness quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#4. Missing Alina was worse than a terminal illness. At least when you were terminal you knew the pain was going to end eventually. But there was no light at the end of my tunnel. Grief was going to devour me, day into night, night into day, and although I might feel like I was dying from it, might even wish I was, I never would. I was going to have to walk around with a hole in my heart forever. I was going to hurt for my sister until the day I died. If you don't know what I mean or you think I'm being melodramatic, then you've never really loved anyone. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Terminal Illness quotes by Amy Andrews
#5. Scarlett lived by the (thankfully) ancient medical creed: If it tastes awful and smells worse, it's probably good for you.
Julia wasn't so sure about that. She lived by the edict: If it tastes awful and smells worse, leave it the hell alone. On the other hand, if it tasted good and smelled better, you either ate it, squirted it on your neck or fucked it.
It hadn't led her wrong so far. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Terminal Illness quotes by Ros Baxter
#6. Quentin flicked a quick glance back at her again. Poppy. This girl had the wrong name. She should have been Rose. Great face, lots of prickles. #Quote by Ros Baxter
Terminal Illness quotes by Stellah Mupanduki
#7. We must love the Holy Spirit who breathed his healing books through a mortal vessel for all people of all race and gender to be healed and saved from demise. We must do away with hate, discrimination, abuse, malice, dissension, fraud and all injustice. This will enable sound healing for all people and this world will be healed from terminal, chronic and rare diseases, the Lord God Almighty, will remove all natural disasters and atrocities from happening. Other than that, there is no peace and salvation in this world. #Quote by Stellah Mupanduki
Terminal Illness quotes by Anya Krugovoy Silver
#8. Letter to Myself, in Remission, from Myself, Terminal"

You'll come to hate your own poems,
read them as pretty wisps of colorful thinking,
all those images just a splash of colored oil
sloshed over a pool gone rancid. Admit it.
Atheists always scared you. And no wonder.
Those nights you switched on the fan so no one
could hear you scream into your pillow, weeping
and biting your own hands like a motherless
monkey,banded to a body that despised you,
a suit of coals with a jammed-shut zipper.
Instead of the truth, you took refuge in stories
and souls, wore the word survivor like a pink nimbus.
All the while, my dear, I waited, knowing
you'd catch up to me one day. I'm holding the black-
backed mirror to your face. Look into it. #Quote by Anya Krugovoy Silver
Terminal Illness quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#9. Tell that incurable disease "Even if you refuse to leave me alone, when I am thrown to the fires, we will be destroyed together, and what will you have gained by not leaving me alone #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Terminal Illness quotes by Dennis Potter
#10. I did not fully understand the dread term 'terminal illness' until I saw Heathrow for myself. #Quote by Dennis Potter
Terminal Illness quotes by Kevin Roose
#11. All week, we've heard pep talks like this one from Scott at last night's post-Razzle's debrief: "To me, here's the motivation to evangelize: If I'm a doctor, and I find the cure for a terminal illness, and if I care about people, I'm going to spread that cure as widely as possible. If I don't, people are going to die."

Leave the comparison in place for a second. If Scott had indeed found the cure to a terminal illness and if this Daytona mission were a vaccination campaign instead of an evangelism crusade, my group members would be acting with an unusually large portion of mercy - much more, certainly, than their friends who spent the break playing Xbox in their sweatpants. And if you had gone on this immunization trip, giving up your spring break for the greater good, and had found the sick spring breakers unwilling to be vaccinated, what would you do? If a terminally ill man said he was "late for a meeting," you might let him walk away. But - and I'm really stretching here - if you really believed your syringe held his only hope of survival, and you really cared about him, would you ignore the rules of social propriety and try every convincement method you knew? #Quote by Kevin Roose
Terminal Illness quotes by Ros Baxter
#12. She frowned, and the effect was so pretty he wondered if he was going mad. Why did he find this cranky, kooky woman so damned appealing? He knew for a fact he could go out tonight and drag home some hot, willing chick who would stroke his ego and never argue with him about anything. He closed his eyes and remembered just how good that felt. Willing women; god bless them. #Quote by Ros Baxter
Terminal Illness quotes by Amy Andrews
#13. Look,' she said, sidling a little closer to him in the lift. 'I understand this wasn't what you bargained for when some cute girl at the café dared you to jump out of a plane with her. You were in it for thrills and sex and you got breast-cancer girl, her terrifying friend and her flaky mother. That's above and beyond. And I totally get you're here because you'd feel like some louse if you left her now, but it's okay, she's going to be fine, I'm going to take good care of her. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Terminal Illness quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#14. Whether we are basically healthy at the moment or have a terminal illness, none of us knows how long we have to live. Life only unfolds in moments. The healing power of mindfulness lies in living each of those moments as fully as we can, accepting it as it is as we open to what comes next - in the next moment of now. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Terminal Illness quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#15. Like the experience of warfare, the endurance of grave or terminal illness involves long periods of tedium and anxiety, punctuated by briefer interludes of stark terror and pain. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Terminal Illness quotes by Amy Andrews
#16. We'll make a wellness altar, I think … have some incense burn¬ing, fresh flowers every day and string some lights around it …'
Poppy rolled her head to the side. 'Still think it's a good idea?'
Julia blanched at the tackiness of a wellness altar with fairy lights and a water feature, but what the hell, she already had a three-metre girly snake ruining the ambience. 'Sure,' she said. If it made Scarlett happy.
Poppy laughed. 'I'm going to remind you of this conversation when your apartment looks like a Chinese brothel. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Terminal Illness quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#17. Death may be a one-time event, but living with terminal illness is a process. #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Terminal Illness quotes by Anthony Marra
#18. We all know to feel sympathy for those who've suffered from drug addiction, child abuse, and terminal illness, so the set up elicits an emotional response that the story itself very well may not earn. Energy generated by the fiction itself is likely to produce more light. #Quote by Anthony Marra
Terminal Illness quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#19. Dear Whoever-that-just-found-out-that-they-have-a-terminal-illness, don't let that put you down. Technically, we are all dying. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Terminal Illness quotes by Megan Crewe
#20. Spoilers follow
I started reading the third act of Hamlet, and I got about two pages in when I realized there's no point.
I am never going back to school.
I am never going to the university.
I am never going to watch wolves stalk through the northern forests or elephants graze on the savanna. I am never going to have sex or get married or raise a family. I'm never going to have a first apartment, a first house, a first car. I'm never #Quote by Megan Crewe
Terminal Illness quotes by Jenny Downham
#21. If I learnt anything at all about terminal illness in my research, it's that the experience is different for everyone. I do believe that life becomes concentrated when it's boundaried and that death is the biggest boundary of all. #Quote by Jenny Downham
Terminal Illness quotes by Anna Quindlen
#22. Consider the lilies of the field. Look at the fuzz on a baby's ear. Read in the backyard with the sun on your face. Learn to be happy. And think of life as a terminal illness because if you do you will live it with joy and passion, as it ought to be lived. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Terminal Illness quotes by Atul Gawande
#23. In 2008, the national Coping with Cancer project published a study showing that terminally ill cancer patients who were put on a mechanical ventilator, given electrical defibrillation or chest compressions, or admitted, near death, to intensive care had a substantially worse quality of life in their last week than those who received no such interventions. And, six months after their death, their caregivers were three times as likely to suffer major depression. Spending one's final days in an I.C.U. because of terminal illness is for most people a kind of failure. You lie on a ventilator, your every organ shutting down, your mind teetering on delirium and permanently beyond realizing that you will never leave this borrowed, fluorescent place. The end comes with no chance for you to have said goodbye or "It's O.K." or "I'm sorry" or "I love you."

People have concerns besides simply prolonging their lives. Surveys of patients with terminal illness find that their top priorities include, in addition to avoiding suffering, being with family, having the touch of others, being mentally aware, and not becoming a burden to others. Our system of technological medical care has utterly failed to meet these needs, and the cost of this failure is measured in far more than dollars. The hard question we face, then, is not how we can afford this system's expense. It is how we can build a health-care system that will actually help dying patients achieve what's most important to them #Quote by Atul Gawande
Terminal Illness quotes by Ros Baxter
#24. Quentin wasn't stupid, despite living what his father called 'a lifestyle unworthy of yourself'. #Quote by Ros Baxter
Terminal Illness quotes by Stephen Hawking
#25. I think those who have a terminal illness and are in great pain should have the right to choose to end their own life, and those that help them should be free from prosecution. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Terminal Illness quotes by Ed Dobson
#26. God, thank you for waking me up this morning. I want to embrace every day, however limited my day may be, as a gift from God. I want to live this day to its fullest. I know there are things I can no longer do. I know I am facing daily limitations. But I want to focus on what I can do, not on what I cannot do. So help me God. I know this day will never be repeated. I know I cannot live it over again. Help me to live it to its fullest. #Quote by Ed Dobson
Terminal Illness quotes by Amy Andrews
#27. Julia had been angry most of her life. She may have grown up in wealth and privilege but she'd had to fight to be heard and seen. To be validated. To be something other than a piece to be moved around her parents' Monopoly board. Rage had given her a voice against their manipulations and the guts to walk away. But it had also become ingrained.
There were times when she'd contemplated therapy for it. Right now, she was pleased she hadn't.
If anything could kill this cancer it would be the weight of Julia's wrath. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Terminal Illness quotes by Dan Millman
#28. Wake up! If you knew for certain you had a terminal illness
if you had little time left to live
you would waste precious little of it! Well, I'm telling you ... you do have a terminal illness: It's called birth. You don't have more than a few years left. No one does! So be happy now, without reason
or you will never be at all. #Quote by Dan Millman
Terminal Illness quotes by Judy LaMarsh
#29. I had, in my legal practice, often encountered really shocking examples of the devastating impact of the costs of long-term medical care on meagre incomes. And, just before I was elected, I had my own personal experience in paying very considerable bills for my mother's terminal illness. #Quote by Judy LaMarsh
Terminal Illness quotes by Atul Gawande
#30. You don't have to spend much time with the elderly or those with terminal illness to see how often medicine fails the people it is supposed to help. The waning days of our lives are given over to treatments that addle our brains and sap our bodies for a sliver's chance of benefit. They are spent in institutions - nursing homes and intensive care units - where regimented, anonymous routines cut us off from all the things that matter to us in life. Our reluctance to honestly examine the experience of aging and dying has increased the harm we inflict on people and denied them the basic comforts they most need. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Terminal Illness quotes by Kevin Rudd
#31. Having a go at kids with a terminal illness is really beyond the pale, absolutely beyond the pale. #Quote by Kevin Rudd
Terminal Illness quotes by James Luceno
#32. Consider the mind-set of the anarchist who plans to sacrifice himself for a cause.
For the weeks, months, possibly years leading up to the day he straps a thermal detonator to his chest and executes his task, he has lived in and strengthened by the secret he carries, knowing the toll his act will take. So it has been for the Sith, residing in a secret, sacred place of knowledge for one thousand years, and knowing the toll our acts will take. This is power, Sidious. Where the Jedi, by contrast, are like beings who, as they move among the healthy, keep secret the fact that they are dying of a terminal illness. The true power needn't bare claws or fangs, or announce itself with snarls and throaty barks, Sidious. It can subdue with manacles of shimmer silk, purposeful charisma and political astuteness"
-Darth Plagueis #Quote by James Luceno
Terminal Illness quotes by Dylan Moore
#33. Life, by nature, is a terminal illness. #Quote by Dylan Moore
Terminal Illness quotes by Rahul Bijlaney
#34. We perceive our circumstances as good or bad. The circumstances in themselves are powerless unless we attach our emotions to them.

A boyfriend and girlfriend witnessing the sunset together find it so very romantic. But if they are forced to stay separately, the same sunset causes pain since they are apart.
A man dying of terminal illness finds it as a signal of death.
A depressed man finds it as "one more day gone".
A poet finds poetry in the sunset.
A painter finds beautiful shades in it.
It's the same sunset but the perceptions are different.
Learn to see a situation as just a situation. Neither good nor bad. Then there is no pain. No ecstasy.
Learn to just BE. Don't try to BE.

Love and Peace to All!!! #Quote by Rahul Bijlaney
Terminal Illness quotes by Nina Riggs
#35. I am reminded of an image...that living with a terminal disease is like walking on a tightrope over an insanely scary abyss. But that living without disease is also like walking on a tightrope over an insanely scary abyss, only with some fog or cloud cover obscuring the depths a bit more -- sometimes the wind blowing it off a little, sometimes a nice dense cover. #Quote by Nina Riggs
Terminal Illness quotes by M.T. Anderson
#36. It sometimes strikes me that there is only one taboo left in young adult literature. By and large, no one complains any more when we write about drugs or sex. We can write about masturbation; terminal illness; the horrors of war; illegal organ transplants; matricide; the chilly delights of necrophilia; scenes of locker-room bukkake – none of this raises an eyebrow. No, the one thing which still causes people pause – the final hurdle – the last frontier – the one element which still gets a few adult readers up in arms about whether a book is appropriate for kids – is intelligence. Some adults still balk at the assumption that our readers, the teenagers of this country, are smart, and curious, and get a kick out of knowing things.

One of the great things about writing YA today is that this is changing. #Quote by M.T. Anderson
Terminal Illness quotes by Connie Kerbs
#37. Three, 300, or 3,000 - these are the number of unknown days, a week, a year, or a decade, each far too precious little and yet, poignantly too much at the same time, to see an irrevocably declined loved one languish and suffer. That fear-ridden, irreversible release lingers in the doorway, but hesitates for reasons we don't understand, leaving us to weep with a mixture of angst and gratitude all at the same time. It is finally ushered all the way in, to comfort and carry our loved one to that Better Place. When the time finally comes, we can be enveloped in a warm cloak of long-awaited acceptance and peace that eases our own pain. It quiets the grief which has moaned inside of us, at least some, every single one of those bittersweet days, weeks... or years. #Quote by Connie Kerbs
Terminal Illness quotes by Paula Hawkins
#38. On the train, the tears come, and I don't care if people are watching me; for all they know, my dog might have been run over. I might have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. I might be a barren, divorced, soon-to-be-homeless alcoholic. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
Terminal Illness quotes by Amy Andrews
#39. She'd never met someone so young who was so damn cocky. Most twenty-year-old guys she knew were either gauche or monosyllabic in her presence, but not Spike. There was a directness, a confidence in his inky-blue eyes that a lot of men never mastered.
Cleary Spike was getting laid far too easily. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Terminal Illness quotes by Anthony Marra
#40. From personal experience, I completely agree that it is often easier to go for monotone sadness. When I was starting out, I wrote a gazillion short stories that ran the gamut of human suffering - drug addiction, child abuse, terminal illness, loved ones dying by all manner of misfortune, etc. In hindsight, it's clear that I mistook the power of the situation for the power of the story. #Quote by Anthony Marra
Terminal Illness quotes by Ros Baxter
#41. Quentin Carmody didn't do early mornings, heights or bossy women. #Quote by Ros Baxter
Terminal Illness quotes by Amit Ray
#42. Indian System of Medicine is not just traditional Ayurveda, unani, or yoga but also a vast field of ancient oral and family medicine traditions. Especially nadi based gut-brain axis modulation medicines are most effective for terminal illness. #Quote by Amit Ray
Terminal Illness quotes by Amy Andrews
#43. I bet if cancer of the penis was more prevalent there'd be a cure for this fucker. I bet if dicks were being amputated or dropping off left, right and centre there'd have been a cure decades ago. There'd be a whole fucking government dick department dedicated to it. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Terminal Illness quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#44. We are not meditating to make anything go away, any more than we are meditating to attain some special state or feeling. Whether we are basically healthy at the moment or have a terminal illness, none of us knows how long we have to live. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Terminal Illness quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#45. People witness the end of their small worlds every day: when somebody's marriage ends, when his only son dies, when a husband/wife dies, when he is diagnosed with a terminal illness, when your party is erased from the political map, when a leader faces a coup, when your town is bombed and your house is hit... #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Terminal Illness quotes by Magda Szabo
#46. The simple, rational garb of terminal illness had translated her into an aristocrat. A truly great lady lay there before us, pure as the stars. It #Quote by Magda Szabo
Terminal Illness quotes by Barbara Brennan
#47. All suffering is caused by the illusion of separateness, which generates fear and self-hatred, which eventually causes illness. You are the master of your life. You can do much more than you thought you could, including cure yourself of a "terminal illness". #Quote by Barbara Brennan
Terminal Illness quotes by Therese De Lisieux
#48. It's true, I suffer a great deal
but do I suffer well? That is the question. #Quote by Therese De Lisieux
Terminal Illness quotes by Jenna Morasca
#49. My family and high school friends were the only people who were with me every step of the way through my mothers' illness. They sat by my side year after year and consoled me. If they ever sent me a bill, I would be paying them off for the rest of my life. #Quote by Jenna Morasca
Terminal Illness quotes by Rick Riordan
#50. That split second I thought about the days when my mom used to work at the Grand Central Terminal candy shop. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Terminal Illness quotes by M. Scott Peck
#51. It has been further suggested that the absence of love is the major cause of mental illness and that the presence of love is consequently the essential healing element in psychotherapy. This #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Terminal Illness quotes by Studs Terkel
#52. One day I visited a guy who had made a fortune as a broker. He was sitting in his office with his computer. I hire people from here and make deals from this room, he told me. Then he took me to the trading room. Nobody was talking to anybody else, the place was silent as a tomb, they were all sitting there watching their terminals - a great word, terminal. I tell you, it scares the crap out of me. #Quote by Studs Terkel
Terminal Illness quotes by Liezi
#53. There was a man whose only son died of a sudden illness. He did not mourn for his son, nor was he sad about it. His friends were curious about his behavior, so they asked him, "Your only son is dead. You should be heartbroken. Why do you act as if nothing had happened?"

The man replied, "Before my son came, I had no son. I was certainly not heartbroken back then. Now I have no son. Why should I be heartbroken now? #Quote by Liezi
Terminal Illness quotes by Shannon Mullen
#54. She can't worry. She can't 'fix.' She can't love. #Quote by Shannon Mullen
Terminal Illness quotes by Roland Barthes
#55. People tell you to keep your "courage" up. But the time for courage is when she was sick, when I took care of her and saw her suffering, her sadness, and when I had to conceal my tears. Constantly one had to make a decision, put on a mask and that was courage.

--Now, courage means the will to live and there's all too much of that. #Quote by Roland Barthes
Terminal Illness quotes by Lundy Bancroft
#56. Mental illness doesn't cause abusiveness any more than alcohol does. What happens is rather that the man's psychiatric problem interacts with his abusiveness to form a volatile combination. If he is severely depressed, for example, he may stop caring about the consequences his actions may cause him to suffer, which can increase the danger that he will decide to commit a serious attack against his partner or children. A mentally ill abuser has two separate - though interrelated - problems, just as the alcoholic or drug-addicted one does. #Quote by Lundy Bancroft
Terminal Illness quotes by George Eliot
#57. Mr. Casaubon had no second attack of equal severity with the first, and in a few days began to recover his usual condition. But Lydgate seemed to think the case worth a great deal of attention. He not only used his stethoscope (which had not become a matter of course in practice at that time), but sat quietly by his patient and watched him. To Mr. Casaubon's questions about himself, he replied that the source of the illness was the common error of intellectual men - a too eager and monotonous application: the remedy was, to be satisfied with moderate work, and to seek variety of relaxation. #Quote by George Eliot
Terminal Illness quotes by Amy Tan
#58. Among writers, if you don't have a therapist, it's like saying you don't keep a journal or use the thesaurus. It's a natural accompaniment. #Quote by Amy Tan
Terminal Illness quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#59. Your words speak louder than your actions because you love to bring me down. Your words are like a double-edged sword that cuts deep. The wounds will never heal - they are scars that I will forever remember. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Terminal Illness quotes by Rhiannon Thomas
#60. What was wrong with you?"
"Melancholy. Nothing more or less than that. I have suffered it often. Not because I do not like the court, but because... well, I do not know why. It is just one of those things... This time was particularly bad, though. It was so strong it was like a physical illness. But the doctors said it was melancholy, just melancholy, and that time away would it. 'A fragile disposition,' they called me.... As though one needs to be fragile to be sad. #Quote by Rhiannon Thomas
Terminal Illness quotes by Stephen Levine
#61. Sometimes pain and illness are not meant to be removed. You can't second-guess God. Rather than praying for it to go away, it's often wiser to pray that you learn as much from it as you possibly can. #Quote by Stephen Levine
Terminal Illness quotes by Wladyslaw Reymont
#62. During my childhood, I had a long, dangerous spell of illness, and my health has always been delicate. #Quote by Wladyslaw Reymont
Terminal Illness quotes by Lois Lowry
#63. 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
Terminal Illness quotes by Julie Schumacher
#64. Depression is an illness, and no fault of the person who suffers from it #Quote by Julie Schumacher
Terminal Illness quotes by Adelle Davis
#65. As I see it every single day you do one in every of two issues: construct well being or produce illness in your self. #Quote by Adelle Davis
Terminal Illness quotes by Hannah Hart
#66. We call the illness "Annette" and the happy memories "Mom. #Quote by Hannah Hart
Terminal Illness quotes by J.P. Delaney
#67. And when I realized you had secrets too, I was glad. I thought we could be honest with each other. That we could finally rid ourselves of all the clutter from our past. Not our possessions, but the stuff we carry around inside our heads. Because that's what I've realized, living in One Folgate Street. You can make your surroundings as polished and empty as you like. But it doesn't really matter if you're still messed up inside. And that's all anyone's looking for really, isn't it? Someone to take care of the mess inside our heads? #Quote by J.P. Delaney
Terminal Illness quotes by Jamie West Zumwalt
#68. When people are suffering from mental illness, they have symptoms not character flaws. #Quote by Jamie West Zumwalt
Terminal Illness quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#69. A positive attitude enables a person to endure suffering and disappointment as well as enhance enjoyment and satisfaction. A negative attitude intensifies pain and deepens disappointments; it undermines and diminishes pleasure, happiness, and satisfaction; it may even lead to depression or physical illness. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Terminal Illness quotes by Siri Hustvedt
#70. It's almost too perfect - the poster girl for an illness in the early days of photography sees the world in black and white. #Quote by Siri Hustvedt
Terminal Illness quotes by Thomas Szasz
#71. The fatal weakness of most psychiatric historiographies lies in the historians' failure to give sufficient weight to the role of coercion in psychiatry and to acknowledge that mad-doctoring had nothing to do with healing. #Quote by Thomas Szasz
Terminal Illness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#72. Madness is depressing illusion. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Terminal Illness quotes by Virginia Woolf
#73. There is a certain 'beauty' in illness - one is alone - one reads - one thinks - one sees only the people one like seeing. (27 (?)/5/1928) - From a Letter to Duncan Grant) #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Terminal Illness quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#74. I realized that it doesn't have to be your bloodline to show you, love - love is love - and it comes naturally, regardless of the role they play in your life. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Terminal Illness quotes by Julian Barnes
#75. It seemed to us philosophically self-evident that suicide was every free person's right: a logical act when faced with illness or senility; a heroic one when faced with torture or the avoidable deaths of others; a glamourous one in the fury of dissappointed love (see: Great Literature). #Quote by Julian Barnes
Terminal Illness quotes by Annie  Hartnett
#76. It's not easy to label people one illness or another. We're all different combinations of crazy. #Quote by Annie Hartnett
Terminal Illness quotes by Elizabeth Langston
#77. Why did things have to get so backwards in our house? Since she couldn't be the adult, I knew that it had to be me. But that didn't stop me from hating it--from wishing it was just over. I'd give anything to be a kid again and not to be the responsible one in the house. It was like I was trapped in a horrible virtual-reality game, except there was no way for me to quit. #Quote by Elizabeth Langston
Terminal Illness quotes by Jody Hedlund
#78. Where's Ben?" she asked after another painful swallow. The angle of the light in the room signaled morning. She'd survived the first horrible night of the illness. That was something for which to be grateful. "He didn't want to go. But your mama kicked him out yesterday." Phoebe bounded to the hearth fire and removed another pot of steaming water she had dangling from a gridiron that belonged to the kitchen. Susanna fought a wave of dizziness and frustration. "But don't you worry none." Phoebe returned to the bedside with the steaming pot, the scent of sassafras and rum drifting under the canopy of her bed. "It's gonna take a pack of wolves to keep that man from coming back to see you. #Quote by Jody Hedlund
Terminal Illness quotes by Richard Matheson
#79. She sounded angry. That was the way she'd been as long as he'd known her. If she became ill, it irritated her. She was annoyed by sickness. She seemed to regard it as a personal affront. #Quote by Richard Matheson
Terminal Illness quotes by Lisa Genova
#80. They were more than colleagues. Triumphs of discovery, promotion, and publication were celebrated, but so were weddings and births and the accomplishments of their children and grandchildren. They traveled together to conferences all over the world, and many meetings were piggybacked with family vacations. And like in any family, it wasn't always good times and yummy cheesecake. They supported one another through slumps of negative data and grant rejection, through waves of crippling self-doubt, through illness and divorce. #Quote by Lisa Genova
Terminal Illness quotes by Mary Roach
#81. Every crazy fad from the 1800s comes back or they never go away. It's like fashion, like everything's already been invented, and somebody stumbles onto it and people will always, always be looking for an answer for some vague illness they can't get a diagnosis for. #Quote by Mary Roach
Terminal Illness quotes by Armin Navabi
#82. A study of heart patients in 6 separate hospitals sought to determine whether prayers from strangers would have any effect on a person's recovery (1). After carefully following the recovery of 1,800 heart surgery patients for 30 days after the surgery, researchers found absolutely no link between prayer and recovery. However, there was a significant difference between those who were aware of the fact that they were being prayed for and those who did not know. Those who knew ended up suffering more complications, possibly due to the additional stress it caused. Being told that a high number of people are praying for your recovery might increase how severe you would perceive your illness to be and thus negatively affect your recovery. To date, there have been no reputable scientific studies showing any clear link between prayer and healing. #Quote by Armin Navabi
