“No doctor knows everything. There's a reason why it's called "practising" medicine.”

Anne Ursu
“I’ve seen middle grade books criticized by adult readers for leaving things for the reader to figure out, for not having perfect happily-ever-after endings. They get knocked for being too depressing, for using too many big words, for featuring parental characters who are too clueless. Girl protagonists are “too angry” or “too self-absorbed.” The issues raised are “too heavy,” the books “too earnest,” “too quiet,” “too hard,” “too far-reaching,” “too strange,” and it is all too too much for the reader.

Except it’s never the readers themselves saying these things.

Our critical discourse in middle grade is sometimes much more about what the reviewer believes children’s books should be rather than about engaging with the book itself and the literature as a whole. When we say a book is “too sad,” “too scary,” “too complicated;” when we demand that endings are perfectly happy and all tied up; when we demand that the themes not be too weighty or the characters not face too much hardship; we are projecting our own biases onto the book, and using them to prescribe what books for this age range can or cannot do. This is nannying, not literary criticism—and it doesn’t give kids much credit.”
Anne Ursu

“Love is a chemical reaction, but it cannot be fully understood or defined by science. And though a body cannot exist without a soul, it too cannot be fully understood or defined by science. Love is the most powerful form of energy, but science cannot decipher its elements. Yet the best cure for a sick soul is love, but even the most advanced physician cannot prescribe it as medicine.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“I’m now ‘Doctor’ to the patients and I have to cover my ignorance by waving my arms and looking grave.”

Larry Dossey
“People say I have created things. I have never created anything. I get impressions from the Universe at large and work them out, but I am only a plate on a record or a receiving apparatus — what you will. Thoughts are really impressions that we get from outside.”
Larry Dossey, One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

“Unhealthy behavior is actually common among doctors, who tend to know a lot about medicine but very little about health.”
Sol Luckman, Snooze: A Story of Awakening
