"The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the causes and prevention of disease."

“To rise at six, dine at ten, sup at six and go to bed at ten, makes one live ten times ten." 
~ 16th century proverb


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