The nearer any disease approaches to a crisis, the nearer it is to a cure. Danger and deliverance make their advances together, and it is only the last push that one or the other takes the lead.
When a man lies dying, he does not die from disease alone. He dies from his whole life.
I personally have experienced the power of prayer to heal the most devastating disease of them all - the power of prayer to heal fear!
Deal firmly, yet tenderly, with evil, as if it were a disease in your own person, and the people will entirely put away their faults.
[Neurosis] is the disease of a bad conscience.
The symptoms of disease are marked by purpose, and the purpose is beneficent. The processes of disease aim not at the destruction of life, but at the saving of it.
Many will receive great help, and many will be entirely healed by a practice somewhat after the following nature: Wit a mind at peace, and with a heart going out in love to all, go into the quiet of your own interior self, holding the thought - I am one with the Infinite Spirit of Life, the life of my life. I then as spirit, I a spiritual being, can in my own real nature admit of no disease. I now open my body, in w2hich disease has obtained a foothold, I open it fully to the inflowing tide of this Infinite Life, and it now, even now, is pouring in and coursing through my body, and the healing process is going on. Realize this so fully that you begin to feel a quickening and a warming glow imparted by the life forces to the body. Believe the healing process is going on. Believe it, and hold continually to it. Many people greatly desire a certain thing but expect something else. They have greater faith in the power of evil than in the power of good, and hence they remain ill.
No disease can enter into or take hold of our bodies unless it finds therein something corresponding to itself which makes it possible. And in the same way, no evil or undesirable condition of any kind can come into our lives unless there is already in them that which invites it and so makes it possible for it to come. the sooner we begin to look within ourselves for the cause of whatever comes to us, the better it will be, for so much sooner will we begin to make conditions within ourselves such that only good may enter.
Duty becomes a disease with us; it drags us ever forward... This duty, this idea of duty is the midday summer sun which scorches the innermost soul of mankind... The only true duty is to be unattached and to work as free beings, to give up all work unto God.
He who has got rid of the disease "Tomorrow" has the possibility to attain what he is here for.
Select the lucky and avoid the unlucky. Ill-luck is generally the penalty of folly, and there is no disease so contagious.
The disease is often made worse by the remedy.
I know no disease of the Soul, but Ignorance… Knowledge is the activity of the soul.
It doesn't matter what the disease is. There is always room for hope. I'm not going to die because of statistics. I hope you won't either.
While there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world quite so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.
No company is preferable to bad, because we are more apt to catch the vices of others than their virtues, as disease is far more contagious than health.
Taking medicine is often only making a new disease to cure or hide the old one.
To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level with those who have not yet reached the age of reason.
Life is a disease; and the only difference between one man and another is the stage of the disease at which he lives.
Alcohol produces artificial happiness, artificial courage, artificial gaiety, artificial self-satisfaction, thus making life bearable for millions who would otherwise be unable to endure their condition. To them alcohol is a blessing. Unfortunately, as it acts by destroying conscience, self-control, and the normal functioning of the body, it produces crime, disease and degradation.
