Life and Healing

Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
William Wallace

Everything has been figured out, except how to live.
Jean-Paul Sartre

Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.
Richard Bach

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
George Bernard Shaw

Healthy people are those who live in healthy homes on a healthy diet; in an environment equally fit for birth, growth work, healing, and dying… Healthy people need no bureaucratic interference to mate, give birth, share the human condition and die.
Ivan Illich

It is reasonable to expect the doctor to recognize that science may not have all the answers to problems of health and healing.
Norman Cousins

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.
Hubert H. Humphrey

The wish for healing has always been half of health.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
Marianne Williamson

There are so many ways to heal. Arrogance may have a place in technology, but not in healing. I need to get out of my own way if I am to heal.
Anne Wilson Schaef

Time is not a great healer. It is an indifferent and perfunctory one. Sometimes it does not heal at all. And sometimes when it seems to, no healing has been necessary.
Ivy Compton-Burnett

    Considering the question – what is health? – I am sending this link to share a moment of true being and connection with nature. Reminds me to get outside every day and I watch it often. Enjoy!
