A Quote by Rob Brezsny on media, news, tv, movies, books, newspapers, bad news, publishing, murder, addiction, self-hatred, sexual pathology, shame, betrayal, extortion, robbery, cancer, arson, torture, life, and meaning

The average American child sees 20,000 murders in TV before reaching age 18.  This is considered normal.  Every community has video rental stores filled with multimillion-dollar films that depict people doing terrible things to each other.  If you read newspapers, you have every right to believe that Bad Nasty Things compose 90 percent of the human experience.  The authors of thousands of books pu

But you will be hard-pressed to find more than a few novels, films, news stories, and TV shows that dare to depict life as a gift whose purpose is to enrich the human soul.

A Quote by Margaret Atwood on life, death, cancer, suspension, and truth

Either I'm alive or I'm dying, she said to Daniel. Please don't feel you can't tell me. Which is it?
Which does it feel like? said Daniel. He patted her hand. You're not dead yet. You're a lot more alive than many people.
This isn't good enough for Rennie. She wants something definite, the real truth, one way or the other. Then she will know what she should do next. It's this suspension, hanging in a void, this half-life she can't bear. She can't bear not knowing. She doesn't want to know.

Margaret Atwood (1939 -)

A Quote by Laura Evans on cancer, breast cancer, and survivor

(I’ve learned) how important it is to really evaluate your own life…to pay attention to what’s going on in your own head, and to know that this is (your) life…and make conscious decisions about how you want to live it.

A Quote by Laura Evans on cancer, breast cancer, and survivor

There is a lot of focus on TV, in magazines…about being skinny and rich. I don’t think those are that important. It’s much more important for us to be good, honest people that try to help others and live the best life we can. That’s where you get your satisfaction ultimately.

A Quote by Joel Fuhrman on child, health, pregnancy, nutrition, plant-based, vegan, vegetarian, prevention, cancer, diabetes, and wellness

Yesterday I saw a child wearing a T-shirt that said, "If you love me, don't feed me junk food."  I was delighted to see this, but I also know how difficult it can be to feed our children well, particularly when the foods that are most convenient and the most heavily advertised are often the ones we should avoid.  Joel Fuhrman's new book is a blessing, because it makes it so much easier.  It is excellent, and full of clarity, wisdom, and guidance you can trust.  It can indeed give you the power to shape your child's health destiny - John Robbins
