A Quote by Ellen Gould Harmon White on body, death, disease, doctors, drugs, family, health, ignorance, majorities, mind, suffering, and work

The majority of the diseases which the human family have been and still are suffering under, they have created by ignorance of their own organic health, and work perseveringly to tear themselves to pieces, and when broken down and debilitated in body and mind, send for the doctor and drug themselves to death.

A Quote by Eli Stanley Jones on death, doctors, facts, faith, fear, god, mind, needs, reality, simplicity, soul, and worry

A Johns Hopkins doctor says that "we do not know why it is that the worriers die sooner than the non-worriers, but that is a fact." But I, who am simple of mind, think I know; we are inwardly constructed, in nerve and tissue and brain cell and soul, for faith and not for fear. God made us that way. Therefore, the need of faith is not something imposed on us dogmatically, but it is written in us intrinsically. We cannot live without it. To live by worry is to live against Reality.

A Quote by Edmund Burke on ability, doctors, execution, imagination, leisure, meditation, military, nature, peace, planning, politics, society, study, time, and war

"War," says Machiavelli, "ought to be the only study of a prince;" and by a prince he means every sort of state, however constituted. "He ought," says this great political doctor, "to consider peace only as a breathing-time, which gives him leisure to contrive, and furnishes ability to execute military plans. "A meditation on the conduct of political societies made old Hobbes imagine that war was the state of nature.

A Quote by Dr. Frank Crane on best friend, doctors, enemies, faith, friendship, good, and thought

Our best friends and our worst enemies are our thoughts. A thought can do us more good than a doctor or a banker or a faithful friend. It can also do us more harm than a brick.

Dr. Frank Crane

A Quote by David Garrick on books, choice, contentment, cooking, devil, doctors, good, heaven, and poets

Are these the choice dishes the Doctor has sent us? Is this the great poet whose works so content us? This Goldsmith's fine feast, who has written fine books? Heaven sends us good meat, but the Devil sends cooks?
