Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn't organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.
A day spent without the sight or sound of beauty, the contemplation of mystery, or the search of truth or perfection is a poverty-stricken day; and a succession of such days is fatal to human life.
The heart of a human being is no different from the soul of heaven and earth. In your practice always keep in your thoughts the interaction of heaven and earth, water and fire, yin and yang.
The beginnings and endings of all human undertakings are untidy.
Invest in the human soul. Who knows, it might be a diamond in the rough.
Mary McLeod Bethune

Love and death are the two great hinges on which all human sympathies turn.
B. R. Hayden
War alone brings up to their highest tension all human energies and imposes the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have the courage to make it.

I think self-knowledge is the rarest trait in a human being.
There is a pride, a self-love, in human minds that will seldom be kept so low as to make men and women humbler than they ought to be.
