Quotation Saturday ~ Healing, Health, Faith

Pss. 143:1 (KJV) "Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness."


“Don't destroy yourself by allowing negative people to add gibberish and debris to your character, reputation, and aspirations. Keep all dreams alive but discreet, so that those with unhealthy tongues won't have any other option than to infect themselves with their own diseases.” 
― Michael Bassey Johnson

“The physician should not treat the disease but the patient who is suffering from it” 
― Maimonides

“In examining disease, we gain wisdom about anatomy and physiology and biology. In examining the person with disease, we gain wisdom about life.” 
― Oliver Sacks

“Today we fight. Tomorrow we fight. The day after, we fight. And if this disease plans on whipping us, it better bring a lunch, 'cause it's gonna have a long day doing it.” 
― Jim Beaver


“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” 
― Hippocrates

“Top 15 Things Money Can’t Buy
Time. Happiness. Inner Peace. Integrity. Love. Character. Manners. Health. Respect. Morals. Trust. Patience. Class. Common sense. Dignity.”

“The individual who says it is not possible should move out of the way of those doing it.” 
― Tricia Cunningham

“The First wealth is health.” 
― Ralph Waldo Emerson


“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” 
― Jalaluddin Rumi

“Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”

“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation -- either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“Listen to God with a broken heart. He is not only the doctor who mends it but also the father who wipes away the tears.” 
― Criss Jami


“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.” 
― Søren Kierkegaard

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.” 
― C. JoyBell C. 

“As the disease washes over me, I look at my health and discover a healing path through my faith; a road I’m willing to take.”
~ Joni Zipp

"What good is the dawn
That grows into day
The sunset at night
Or living this way

For I have the warmth of the sun
(Warmth of the sun)
Within me at night
(Within me at night)" ~ The Beach Boys
