Medicine quotes page 2

No medicine can cure a vulgar man.
Chinese proverb

The whole LSD, STP, marijuana, heroin, hashish, prescription cough medicine crowd suffers
from the Watchtower itch: you gotta be with us, man, or you're out, you're dead. This pitch
is a continual and seeming MUST with those who use the stuff. It's no wonder they keep
getting busted.
Charles Bukowski

Bitter pills may have wholesome effects.
English proverb

Attempting to debate with a person who has abandoned reason is like giving medicine to the
dead.
Thomas Paine

The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved,
and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for
loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a
piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a
different kind of poverty - it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's
a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.
Mother Teresa

Medicine as a science of disease has increased disease; religion as a science of sin has
promoted sin, and economics as a study of poverty will fill the world with wretchedness and
want.
Wallace D. Wattles

Without measure medicine will become poison.
Polish proverb

Medicine sometimes snatches away health, sometimes gives it.
Ovid

There is no medicine to cure hatred.
African proverb, Ashanti

Empathetic listening is an awesome medication for the hurting heart.
Gary Chapman

Medicines be not meat to live by.
English proverb

If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their
bodies will soon be in as a sorry state as the souls who live under tyranny.
Thomas Jefferson

No matter how love-sick a woman is, she shouldn't take the first pill that comes along.
Joyce Brothers

We have bigger houses but smaller families; We have more degrees but less sense;
more knowledge but less judgements; more experts but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness. We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but we have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever,
but we have less communication. We have become long on quantity
but short on quality. These are times of fast foods, but slow digestion;
tall man, but short character; steep profits, but shallow relationships.
It is a time when there is much in the window but nothing in the room.
Dalai Lama

For lovesickness there is no medicine.
Japanese proverb

Pills must be swallowed, not chewed.
German proverb

Comfort is a disease. And it's what the media wants you to do. It's definitely what the big
pharmaceutical companies want you to do. They want you to get comfortable. All the big
money on this planet actually wants you to get comfortable so you just sit back and become
a passive spectator in the game of life.
Grant Cardone

It is easy to get a thousand prescriptions but hard to get one single remedy.
Chinese proverb

To array a man's will against his sickness is the supreme art of medicine.
Henry Ward Beecher

Medicine is my lawful wife, and literature is my mistress. When I get fed up with one, I spend
the night with the other.
Anton Chekhov

A hypochondriac is one who has a pill for everything except what ails him.
Mignon McLaughlin

It would be a service to mankind if the pill were available in slot machines and the cigarette
were placed on prescription.
Malcolm Potts

It is very expensive to give bad medical care to poor people in a rich country.
Paul Farmer

Disease is the biggest money maker in our economy.
John H. Tobe

In the sick room, ten cents' worth of human understanding equals ten dollars' worth of
medical science.
Martin H. Fischer

Drugs are not always necessary. Belief in recovery always is.
Norman Cousins

Always laugh when you can, it is cheap medicine.
George Gordon Byron

150 people die every year from being hit by falling coconuts. Not to worry, drug makers are
developing a vaccine.
Jim Carrey
