Margaret Atwood
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

“Be patient and open-minded in your interactions with others; find the positive attributes that they possess.”
Roy T. Bennett

“Watching my parents I've learnt a lesson many do not recognize. True love is not signaled by romantic, candle light dinners, red roses glistening with dew, or even Valentine's day celebrations. While these things may accompany our feelings, love is truly more than all those! Love is being with your spouse even when its not pleasing. Sometimes, love is walking down the hall, with your spouse hanging onto your shoulders and walking at a turtle's pace down the hall, just because surgery made life a burden. Love is patient, love is kind, love is Jesus! May we always remember love is not always tied in bows!”
Mary Kate

Francis de Sales
“The truly patient man neither complains of his hard lot nor desires to be pitied by others. He speaks of his sufferings in a natural, true, and sincere way, without murmuring, complaining, or exaggerating them.”
St. Francis de Sales


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
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.

Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“When we are fairly observant and overly patient, a vibration of happiness might crop up unwittingly, as we capture the “timelessness” of a lucky moment and a sparkle of a stray instant, unexpectedly, enraptures our life in a blaze of color and splendor. ( "Happy days are back again" )”
Erik Pevernagie

Melissa Cady
“The erosion of an effective patient-physician relationship has no place when dealing with chronic pain. Worst of all, dismissing the patient's pain is as devastating as crushing a patient's hope.”
Melissa Cady, Paindemic: A Practical and Holistic Look at Chronic Pain, the Medical System, and the antiPAIN Lifestyle

“As individuals, we hardly have any control over the world. At best, what we can do is try controlling ourselves.”
Dr Prem Jagyasi

“Dr. Talbon was struck by another very important thing. It all hung together. The stories Cheryl told — even though it was upsetting to think people could do stuff like that — they were not disjointed They were not repetitive in terms of "I've heard this before". It was not just she'd someone trying consciously or unconsciously to get attention. really processed them out and was done with them. She didn't come up with them again [after telling the story once and dealing with it]. Once it was done, it was done. And I think that was probably the biggest factor for me in her believability. I got no sense that she was using these stories to make herself a really interesting person to me so I'd really want to work with her, or something. Or that she was just living in this stuff like it was her life. Once she dealt with it and processed it, it was gone. We just went on to other things. 'Throughout the whole thing, emotionally Cheryl was getting her life together. Parts of her were integrating where she could say,"I have a sense that some particular alter has folded in with some basic alter", and she didn't bring it up again. She didn't say that this alter has reappeared to cause more problems. That just didn't happen. The therapist had learned from training and experience that when real integration occurs, it is permanent and the patient moves on.”

“If someone slaps you on one cheek,
offer the other cheek also...
but of course if you were able
to stand soberly
after the first slap.”

“Don't be in a hurry. Everything arise in the due time.”

Anne McCarthy Strauss
“A Medical Affair is more than compelling fiction. It also is a powerful narrative about how relationships between physicians and patients can evolve in unethical, even unlawful ways. And as a medical ethicist and educator, I was delighted to see Strauss deftly weave important information about sexual misconduct by physicians into her story line.”
David Orentlicher
Professor of law, medicine and ethics at Indiana University. Oversaw drafting of American Medical Association's ethical guidelines on intimate relationships between physicians and their patients”
Anne McCarthy Strauss, A Medical Affair

Siri Hustvedt
“Worries about the power of a doctor's suggestions to influence and shape his patient's mind, whether they are made under hypnosis or not, are still with us.”
Siri Hustvedt, The Shaking Woman, or A History of My Nerves

Beth O'Leary
“I wake with a jolt that sends a shock of pain through my ankle. Crying out, I look around me. Floral wallpaper. Am I at home? Who's that man in the chair by the door, reading .... "Twilight?" Leon blinks at me, putting the book down in his lap. 'You went from unconscious to judgemental very quickly there.”
Beth O'Leary, The Flatshare

Abhijit Naskar
“You do not need to be able to diagnose a patient's condition right at sight unless you are in the OR, but you must be able to genuinely recognize and realize the worry and weakness in the patient's mind right from the very beginning. Remember, you will never be a first-class doctor until you learn to have some regard for human frailty.”
Abhijit Naskar, Time to Save Medicine

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“One of the best ways to start being impatient is to stop meditating.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Jules Montague
“In the two decades since starting at medical school, I have never heard the word 'identity' spoken. Grand rounds, the very heartbeat of medical learning, are not a place for philosophical musings or profound emotional questions. Diagnostic labels gathered there speak more to the patient and less to the person. We talk about loss of blood and loss of lung function but we do not contemplate the loss of person and the loss of self.”
Jules Montague, Lost and Found: Memory, Identity and Who We Become When We're No Longer Ourselves

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Most of the people who are striving to be great often compare the demands of their goal with those of that of people who are striving to remain average.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“The creative being knows that there is harassment in his house, and so he continues on his path, ‘cause he keeps going when there is any harassment around. He is patient when there is tribulation, being a devoted family father, he grows hope with his experiences”
Alan Maiccon

“A spark is just a lighted bulb for patient men. The eminent failures of a family man, both in life and in business, is a sign of medium and long term sucess. Current studies show that impatience, sadness and irritation occur through conflicts and adversities that happen behind the scenes. When you decide to be a superhuman in and out of the field of life, be clear and cordial, honest and understanding. Those who so choose, remove the crust from the mountain, while they become rare pearls for God; He wears them with the new and, for impatient men, the mystery continues as an ancient secret.”
Alan Maiccon

Rehan Khan
“You strike me as one who is patient, so you will know that things don’t always happen in the sequence you want them to”
Rehan Khan, A Tudor Turk

Awdhesh Singh
“A good doctor should not avoid performing surgery or prescribing a bitter pill if it is in the interest of the patient. Similarly, a wise person must not avoid taking unpleasant and difficult decisions, if they are in the interest of the people and the organisation.”
