Some Quotes on Healing

Contemplative Activist tagged me to come up with five favourite quotations. Having heard a great one about healing yesterday, I decided to share five quotes on healing.

It has been said that time heals all wounds.
The truth is that time does not heal anything.
It merely passes.
it is what we do during the passing of time that helps or hinders the healing process.
-Jay Marshall

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.
-Hubert H. Humphrey

Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.
-Tori Amos

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings and something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
-Albert Einstein

We need, in every community, a group of angelic troublemakers. Our power is in our ability to make things unworkable.
-Bayard Rustin

Now I tag five people with the charge to share on your blog five favorite quotes on any topic.
Elliot, Pam, Jerry, Eugene and Diana!

    Almost any mention of Tori Amos has the potential to make my day. Thanks, Peterson. 😉

    anna hp and jonathan, so glad you got inspired. I’m going right now to read your quotes.

    jay, I once saw Tori in concert in CT. It was the perfect concert. Rufus Wainwright opened for her! I got him to sign a T-Shirt for me and then I proposed. He said, Yes!

    jerry, not only did you do it, but you did it in like 4 minutes!

    Peterson, I love the first quote. I really do. I get so tired of hearing people say “but that was years ago, get over it.” What if its been sitting there on your shoulder weighing you down your whole life? What if no one ever showed you how to get it off of you, or at even, god forbid, helped steady your gait when it made you stumble.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Will do, Peterson. I have lots of time to think about it right now, as well — four blocks of free periods, baby!
