Favorite The Human Body And Medicine Quotes

1. "Your body does not eliminate poisons by knowing their names. To try to control fear or depression or boredom by calling them names is to resort to superstition of trust in curses and invocations. It is so easy to see why this does not work. Obviously, we try to know, name, and define fear in order to make it "objective," that is, separate from "I."
Author: Alan Wilson Watts

I could summon no great concern for anything, including the fate of Lev Beniov."
Author: David Benioff

"If everything that is happening in the world is traceable to our inability to understand what is happening in the world.  If there is such a thing as original sin, it's the human capacity to get everything wrong, right from the beginning and all the way up to now, and that's what the old storytellers have been telling us, including the Creek Indians who told this story along with every other tribe on earth."
Author: Gerald Hausman

I know it's not possible for me to gain a noticeable amount of weight overnight, so I will go no further than that. I move on with my day without skipping a beat—and definitely without missing a meal."
Author: Jenni Schaefer

Finally it tilted its massive head, raised its trunk, and roared into the empty landscape."
Author: Lois Lowry
