Quotations about Health 3

Healing comes when the individual remembers his or her identity—the purpose chosen in the world of ancestral wisdom—and reconnects with that world of Spirit. ~Malidoma Patrice Somé

Confidence and hope do more good than physic. ~Galen

Live in rooms full of light
Avoid heavy food
Be moderate in the drinking of wine
Take massage, baths, exercise, and gymnastics
Fight insomnia with gentle rocking or the sound of running water
Change surroundings and take long journeys
Strictly avoid frightening ideas
Indulge in cheerful conversation and amusements
Listen to music.
~A. Cornelius Celsus

The miracle of self-healing occurs when the inner patient yields to the inner physician. ~Vernon Howard, 1967

Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use only the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place. ~Susan Sontag, Illness as Metaphor, 1977

Doctors don't know everything really. They understand matter, not spirit. And you and I live in the spirit. ~William Saroyan

Half the modern drugs could well be thrown out the window, except that the birds might eat them. ~Martin H. Fischer

How sickness enlarges the dimension of a man's self to himself! ~Charles Lamb,Last Essays of Elia

Our illness is often our healing. ~Mooji

The great majority of us are required to live a life of constant duplicity. Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike, and rejoice at what brings you nothing but misfortune. Our nervous system isn't just a fiction, it's a part of our physical body, and our soul exists in space, and is inside us, like the teeth in our mouth. It can't be forever violated with impunity. ~Boris Pasternak

The existence of illness in the body may no doubt be called a shadow of the true illness which is held by man in his mind. ~Hazrat Khan

Doctors are always working to preserve our health and cooks to destroy it, but the latter are the more often successful. ~Denis Diderot

Sickness is poor-spirited, and cannot serve anyone; it must husband its resources to live. But health or fullness answers its own ends, and has to spare, runs over, and inundates the neighborhoods and creeks of other men's necessities. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you wish to keep as well as possible, the less you think about your health the better. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Over the Teacups, 1891

After these two, Dr. Diet and Dr. Quiet, Dr. Merriman is requisite to preserve health. ~James Howell

Illness is the result of imbalance. Imbalance is a result of forgetting who you are. Forgetting who you are creates thoughts and actions that lead to an unhealthy lifestyle and eventually to illness.... Illness can thus be understood as a lesson you have given yourself to help you remember who you are. ~Barbara Brennan

First need in the reform of hospital management? That's easy! The death of all dietitians, and the resurrection of a French chef. ~Martin H. Fischer

In the face of such overwhelming statistical possibilities hypochondria has always seems to me to be the only rational position to take on life. ~John Diamond

Health and disease don't just happen to us. They are active processes issuing from inner harmony or disharmony, profoundly affected by our states of consciousness, our ability or inability to flow with experience. This recognition carries with it implicit responsibility and opportunity. ~Marilyn Ferguson

He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything. ~Arabic Proverb

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. ~Proverbs 17:22 (Bible: King James Version)

A bodily disease, which we look upon as whole and entire within itself, may, after all, be but a symptom of some ailment in the spiritual part. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter

To live without love, compassion, or any other spiritual value creates a state of such severe imbalance that every cell yearns to correct it. Ultimately, that is what lies behind the onset of disease; the body is sending a message that something lacking in the present—an imbalance existing somewhere—has given rise to highly visible, unarguable, physical symptoms. ~Deepak Chopra

Happiness lies, first of all, in health. ~George William Curtis, Lotus-Eating

If you resolve to give up smoking, drinking and loving, you don't actually live longer; it just seems longer. ~Clement Freud, The Observer, 27 December 1964

Healing comes only from that which leads the patient beyond himself and beyond his entanglements with ego.... ~Carl Jung

If you start to think about your physical or moral condition, you usually find that you are sick. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Proverbs in Prose

When an illness knocks you on your ass, you should stay and relax for a while before trying to get back up. ~Terri Guillemets

A great many sick persons are allowed to drift into a critical condition when ill—from which many never rally, because they are not fed—not furnished with such nutritive material as their enfeebled powers can digest. ~King Chambers, quoted by John Milner Fothergill in A Manual of Dietetics, 1886

If you do everything you should do, and do not do anything you should not do, you will, according to the best available statistics, live exactly eighteen hours longer than you would otherwise. ~Logain Clendening

Health is a relationship between you and your body. ~Terri Guillemets

The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd druther not. ~Mark Twain

The great secret of medicine, known to doctors but still hidden from the public, is that most things get better by themselves. ~Lewis Thomas

It's no longer a question of staying healthy. It's a question of finding a sickness you like. ~Jackie Mason

Sometimes a headache is all in your head. Relax. ~Terri Guillemets

Health is merely the slowest way someone can die. ~Author Unknown

May you live as long as you are fit to live, but no longer! or, may you rather die before you cease to be fit to live than after! ~Philip Dormer Stanhope, 1749

Those obsessed with health are not healthy; the first requisite of good health is a certain calculated carelessness about oneself. ~Sydney J. Harris

My fat scares me - it's a ticking time bomb. ~Carrie Latet

I refuse to spend my life worrying about what I eat. There is no pleasure worth forgoing just for an extra three years in the geriatric ward. ~John Mortimer

Personal healing on all levels—physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual—comes when we get in touch with our disowned energies.... Through integrating all aspects of ourselves, we become whole. ~Shakti Gawain

So many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health. ~A.J. Reb Materi, Our Family

If the physician comes from a far land and speaks in a strange and unintelligible language, the common people think him clever, gather around him, and seek his advice. The physician does not work the cure. He does but prepare and clear the path for nature, the real healer.... If you can carry out your treatment effectively with diet or with healing foods, then do not use drugs, for most of them are enemies and antagonists of nature, especially the purgatives.... Do not despise any cure of which you hear, for often results may be achieved by simple means which you could not accomplish with a multiplicity of prescriptions and medicines.... Reassure and encourage the patient with the prospect of recovery, even if you are not sure of it, for thus you will strengthen his nature. ~Isaac Israeli ben Solomon, translated, quoted in A Middle East Mosaic: Fragments of Life, Letters and History by Bernard Lewis, 2000

Our Creator has given us five senses to help us survive threats from the external world, and a sixth sense, our healing system, to help us survive internal threats. ~Bernie Siegel

Nothing is more fatal to Health, than an over Care of it. ~Benjamin Franklin

One thing is certain: the time will come when the opinions of priests and doctors must give way to the science of life; for their opinions lead to death and misery, and the science of life is health and happiness. ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, March 1861

Human misery universally arises from some error that man admits as true. We confound our fears with the idea feared, and place the evil in the thing seen or believed. Here is a great error, for we never see what we are afraid of. ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, 1861

Now, I stand alone on this rock, fighting the errors of this world, and establish the science of life by my works. What is my mode of warfare? With the axe of truth I strike at the root of every tree of error and hew it down, so that there shall not be one error in man showing itself in the form of disease. ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, March 1861

Every one is made of matter, and matter is continually going through a chemical change. This change is life, not wisdom, but life, like vegetable or mineral life. Every idea is matter, so of course it contains life in the name of something that can be changed. Motion, or change, is life. Ideas have life. A belief has life, or matter; for it can be changed. Now, all the aforesaid make up man; and all this can be changed. ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, 1861

After I found that mind was matter, I found that ideas were matter condensed into a solid called disease, and that this, like a book, contained all the wisdom of its author. Seeing the book,—for sight with Wisdom embraces all the senses,—I open it, and see through it. To the patient it is a sealed book; but to Wisdom there is nothing hid which cannot be revealed or seen, nor so far off that it cannot be reached. So I read the contents of the book to the patient, and show that it is false. Then, as the truth changes his mind, light takes the place of the darkness, till he sees through the error of disease. The light of Wisdom dissipates the matter, or disease, the patient once more finds himself freed of opinions, and happiness is restored. ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, August 1861

Disease is the misery of our belief, happiness is the health of our wisdom, so that man's happiness or misery depends on himself. Now, as our misery comes from our belief, and not from the thing believed, it is necessary to be on the watch, so as not to be deceived by false guides. Sensation contains no intelligence or belief, but is a mere disturbance of the matter, called agitation, which produces mind, and is ready to receive the seed of error. Ever since man was created, there has been an element called error which has been busy inventing answers for every sensation. ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, September 1861

Man is made of opinions,—of truth and error; and his life is a warfare like all other lives before him.... Man goes on developing error upon error till he is buried in his own belief.... It is the office of wisdom to explain the phenomena in man called disease, to show how it is made, and how it can be unmade. This is as much a science as it is to know how to decompose a piece of metal. ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, December 1861

It may seem strange to those in health that our beliefs affect us. The fact is, there is nothing of us but belief. It is the whole capital and stock in trade of man. It is all that can be changed, and embraces everything man has made or ever will make. ~Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, 1865

Meditation allows us to directly participate in our lives instead of living life as an afterthought. ~Stephen Levine

A jeweler could meditate by envisioning that everything is as pure and radiant as shimmering gold; a winemaker might picture herself as distilling bliss from the grapes of experience; a shoemaker could imagine that he was sewing the leather of passion with the thread of freedom to produce shoes of enlightenment. ~Miranda Shaw

The stars swirl downward from the blissful heavens, energy of the universe heals around me, exploding into life, drifting into calmness, and nothing else matters. ~Terri Guillemets

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life. ~Buddha
