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 Dr. Walter Modell on death, disease, drugs, and helpful

When will they realize that there are too many drugs? No fewer than 150,000 preparations are now in use. About 15,000 new mixtures and dosages hit the market each year, while about 12,000 die off...We simply don't have enough diseases to go around. At the moment the most helpful contribution is the new drug to counteract the untoward effect of other new drugs.

Half of the modern drugs could well be thrown out of the window, except that the birds might eat them.

A Quote by Dorothy Parker on drugs and pain


Razors pain you; Rivers are damp; Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give; Gas smells awful; You might as well live.

A Quote by Daniel Goldman on chance, children, crisis, disease, drugs, giving, life, logic, needs, pregnancy, problems, skill, teenage, trouble, and violence

Over the last decade or so 'wars' have been proclaimed, in turn, on teen pregnancy, dropping out, drugs, and most recently violence. The trouble with such campaigns, though, is that they come too late, after the targeted problem has reached epidemic proportions and taken firm root in the lives of the young. They are crisis intervention, the equivalent of solving a problem by sending an ambulance to the rescue rather than giving an inoculation that would ward off the disease in the first place. Instead of more such 'wars,' what we need is to follow the logic of prevention, offering our children the skills for facing life that will increase their chances of avoiding any and all of these fates.

A Quote by Courtney Love on creation, drugs, facts, kindness, and music

Drugs have nothing to do with the creation of music. In fact, drugs are dumb and self-indulgent. Kind of like sucking your thumb.
