    Criss Jami, Healology

    Criss Jami
    “Quiet people always know more than they seem. Although very normal, their inner world is by default fronted mysterious and therefore assumed weird. Never underestimate the social awareness and sense of reality in a quiet person; they are some of the most observant, absorbent persons of all.”
    Criss Jami, Healology

    Thomas Mann
    “Order and simplification are the first steps towards mastery of a subject”
    Thomas Mann

    John Steinbeck
    “It’s a hard thing to leave any deeply routine life, even if you hate it.”
    John Steinbeck, East of Eden

    Vilayat Inayat Khan
    “The human spirit lives on creativity and dies in conformity and routine.”
    Vilayat Inayat Khan

  • #7
    Bruce Lee
    “If you follow the classical pattern, you are understanding the routine, the tradition, the shadow -- you are not understanding yourself.”
    Bruce Lee, Tao of Jeet Kune Do

  • #8
    Sylvia Plath
    “Life was not to be sitting in hot amorphic leisure in my backyard idly writing or not-writing, as the spirit moved me. It was, instead, running madly, in a crowded schedule, in a squirrel cage of busy people. Working, living, dancing, dreaming, talking, kissing — singing, laughing, learning. The responsibility, the awful responsibility of managing (profitably) 12 hours a day for 10 weeks is rather overwhelming when there is nothing, noone, to insert an exact routine into the large unfenced acres of time — which it is so easy to let drift by in soporific idling and luxurious relaxing. It is like lifting a bell jar off a securely clockwork-like functioning community, and seeing all the little busy people stop, gasp, blow up and float in the inrush, (or rather outrush,) of the rarified scheduled atmosphere — poor little frightened people, flailing impotent arms in the aimless air. That's what it feels like: getting shed of a routine. Even though one had rebelled terribly against it, even then, one feels uncomfortable when jounced out of the repetitive rut. And so with me. What to do? Where to turn? What ties, what roots? as I hang suspended in the strange thin air of back-home?”
    Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

  • #9
    “People just don't seem to get me. Don't understand that I need my space. Always telling me what to do. They think rules and routines and clean hands and your p's and q's will make everything all right. They haven't got a clue.”
    Rachel Ward, Numbers

  • #10
    “I want to caution you against the idea that balance has to be a routine that looks the same week in and week out.”
    Kevin Thoman

  • #11
    Robert G. Ingersoll
    “The grandest ambition that any man can possibly have, is to so live, and so improve himself in heart and brain, as to be worthy of the love of some splendid woman; and the grandest ambition of any girl is to make herself worthy of the love and adoration of some magnificent man. That is my idea. There is no success in life without love and marriage. You had better be the emperor of one loving and tender heart, and she the empress of yours, than to be king of the world. The man who has really won the love of one good woman in this world, I do not care if he dies in the ditch a beggar, his life has been a success.”
    Robert G. Ingersoll, The Liberty of Man, Woman and Child

  • #12
    Edward de Bono
    “We may have a perfectly adequate way of doing something, but that does not mean there cannot be a better way. So we set out to find an alternative way. This is the basis of any improvement that is not fault correction or problem solving.”
    Edward De Bono, Six Thinking Hats

  • #13
    Jaachynma N.E. Agu
    “Don't call yourself discouraged anymore;it's no longer your name.”
    Jaachynma N.E. Agu, The Prince and the Pauper

  • #14
    Criss Jami
    “The humble ones are always learning and improving, and their secret is always that it's a secret.”
    Criss Jami, Killosophy

  • #15
    Arthur Quiller-Couch
    “We make our discoveries through our mistakes: we watch one another's success: and where there is freedom to experiment there is hope to improve.”
    Sir Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch

  • #16
    Michael J. Fox
    “It’s all about control. Control is illusory. No matter what university you go to, no matter what degree you hold, if your goal is to become master of your own destiny, you have more to learn. Parkinson’s is a perfect metaphor for lack of control. Every unwanted movement in my hand or arm, every twitch that I cannot anticipate or arrest, is a reminder that even in the domain of my own being, I am not calling the shots. I tried to exert control by drinking myself to a place of indifference, which just exacerbated the sense of miserable hopelessness.”
    Michael J. Fox, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future...: Twists and Turns and Lessons Learned

  • #17
    Criss Jami
    “With no positivity, there is no hope; with no negativity, there is no improvement.”
    Criss Jami, Healology

  • #18
    Michael Bassey Johnson
    “No matter how tiny you look, you can lead huge men if you have what the huge men don't have.”
    Michael Bassey Johnson

  • #19
    Marcus Buckingham
    “In the minds of great managers, consistent poor performance is not primarily a matter of weakness, stupidity, disobedience, or disrespect. It is a matter of miscasting.”
    Marcus Buckingham

  • #20
    Marcus Buckingham
    “Talent is the multiplier. The more energy and attention you invest in it, the greater the yield. The time you spend with your best is, quite simply, your most productive time.”
    Marcus Buckingham, First, Break All the Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently

  • #21
    Peter F. Drucker
    “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.”
    Peter F. Drucker

  • #22
    Robert Conquest
    “The behavior of any bureaucratic organization can best be understood by assuming that it is controlled by a secret cabal of its enemies.”
    Robert Conquest

  • #23
    John C. Maxwell
    “Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.”
    John C Maxwell

  • #24
  • #25
    Guy de Maupassant
    “A sick thought can devour the body's flesh more than fever or consumption.”
    Guy de Maupassant, Le Horla et autres contes fantastiques

  • #26
    Alison G. Bailey
    “I’ve been sick for so long I don’t
    remember a time when I wasn’t.”
    Alison G. Bailey, Present Perfect

    “THE MAXIMS OF MEDICINE

    Before you examine the body of a patient,
    Be patient to learn his story.
    For once you learn his story,
    You will also come to know
    His body.
    Before you diagnose any sickness,
    Make sure there is no sickness in the mind or heart.
    For the emotions in a man’s moon or sun,
    Can point to the sickness in
    Any one of his other parts.
    Before you treat a man with a condition,
    Know that not all cures can heal all people.
    For the chemistry that works on one patient,
    May not work for the next,
    Because even medicine has its own
    Conditions.
    Before asserting a prognosis on any patient,
    Always be objective and never subjective.
    For telling a man that he will win the treasure of life,
    But then later discovering that he will lose,
    Will harm him more than by telling him
    That he may lose,
    But then he wins.


    THE MAXIMS OF MEDICINE by Suzy Kassem”
    Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

  • #28
    Martin Luther King Jr.
    “All this is simply to say that all life is interrelated. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality; tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. As long as there is poverty in this world, no man can be totally rich even if he has a billion dollars. As long as diseases are rampant and millions of people cannot expect to live more than twenty or thirty years, no man can be totally healthy, even if he just got a clean bill of health from the finest clinic in America. Strangely enough, I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be.”
    Martin Luther King Jr.

  • #29
    Criss Jami
    “Hypocrisy versus authenticity among men is not always so black and white, and as is righteousness, humility is often self-proclaimed. The Church is most definitely supposed to be a hospital for the spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically sick, hurting, and broken individual, yet ironically, many of its critics are those who ran away and permanently denounced its members after they visited and felt that they were sneezed on.”
    Criss Jami, Killosophy

  • #30
    Bruce Lee
    “It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.”
    Bruce Lee
