Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love – for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you from misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.” – Max Ehrmann

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
  • One can live as though nothing is a miracle. One can live as though everything is a miracle.  It’s your choice…………..
  • Patients forget what I say. Patients forget what I do. But patients never forget how I make them feel. This is the art of medicine.
  • I always forgive my enemies. Nothing annoys them more.
  • A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you
  • I’m glad I am a man who has once danced naked in uptown Charlotte at midnight.
  • This morning, I was standing naked in front of the mirror and thinking to myself, “I’m going to get thrown out of this IKEA soon.”
