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 Edward Kasner on danger, home, logic, mathematics, order, progress, seriousness, and suffering

When the mathematician says that such and such a proposition is true of one thing, it may be interesting, and it is surely safe. But when he tries to extend his proposition to everything, though it is much more interesting, it is also much more dangerous. In the transition from one to all, from the specific to the general, mathematics has made its greatest progress, and suffered its most serious setbacks, of which the logical paradoxes constitute the most important part. For, if mathematics is to advance securely and confidently, it must first set its affairs in order at home.

A Quote by Edith Virginia Eradt on children, fatherhood, gifts, justice, life, love, planning, rest, suffering, trust, understanding, and path

Just why I suffer loss I cannot know, I only know my Father wills it so. He leads in paths I cannot understand; But all the way I know is wisely planned. My life is only mine that I may use The gifts he length me as he may choose; And if in love some boon he does recall, I know that unto him belongeth all. I am his child and I can safely trust; He loves me and I know that he is just. Within his love I can scarcely rest, Assured that what he does for me is best.

A Quote by Dr. Rufus E. Clement on education, force, opportunity, potential, power, and suffering

Race tensions thrive on the restricted educational opportunities for Southern Negroes. When earning power is limited or foreshortened by lack of education, whole populations suffer. A potential great producing force, as well as a large possible market for goods, is thus being ignored.
