It has often appeared, while I have been soothing my patients, as if there was a singular property in my hands to pull and draw away from the affected parts aches and diverse impurities, by laying my hand upon the place, and extending my fingers toward it. Thus it is known to some of the learned that health may be implanted in the sick by certain gestures, and by contact, as some diseases may be communicated from one to another. ~ Hippocrates #quote

Trade is much superior to piracy. You can rob and kill a man but once, but you can cheat him again and again. ~ Louis L'Amour #quote, The Walking Drum

A woman can look both moral and exciting... if she also looks as if it was quite a struggle. ~ Edna Ferber #quote

In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dulled and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well oiled in the closet, but unused. ~ Ernest Hemingway #quote

The medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium - that is, of any extension of ourselves - result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology. ~ Marshall McLuhan #quote

What we have inherited from our fathers and mothers is not all that 'walks in us.' There are all sorts of dead ideas and lifeless old beliefs.

Ghosts must be all over the country, as thick as the sands of the sea. ~ Henrik Ibsen #quote, Ghosts
