Insel

  • The real truth is that the Obama administration is professional at bullying, as we have witnessed with ACORN at work during the presidential campaign. It seems to me they are sending down their bullies to create fist fights among average American citizens who don’t want a government-run health care plan forced upon them. – Jon Voight
  • Mental health is such a complex thing and so difficult to diagnose. What is a mental problem? Who does have mental problems? What’s the difference between mental problems and depression and sadness? – Tom Sturridge
  • There’s nothing more important than our good health – that’s our principal capital asset. – Arlen Specter
  • I’m exhausted trying to stay healthy. – Steve Yzerman

  • Attention to health is life’s greatest hindrance. – Plato

  • It’s like, hmm, there’s people with $2000 weaves that could have bought health care with that weave money. They don’t have insurance. People want what they want. And I guess that is a reason we have this big credit card problem and a lot of these foreclosures. – Chris Rock
  • Well, here’s what I think. I mean, the people are saying, ‘We don’t want it,’ and the Democrats are saying, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to pass it anyway.’ And so for the next three months, Washington will be consumed with the Democrats trying to jam this through in a very messy procedure an unpopular health care bill. – Lamar Alexander

  • If bringing up the next generation is important, why aren’t they the best qualified, the best paid? Why aren’t we as concerned about their career progression as we are about those who work in the education or health services? – Estelle Morris
  • I always am a firm believer in you compensate people for their job, and so I did give them bonuses. We accomplished a lot in Congress, we passed health care reform.

  • The carrying power of a bridge is not the average strength of the pillars, but the strength of the weakest pillar. I have always believed that you do not measure the health of a society by GNP but by the condition of its worst off. – Zygmunt Bauman
  • If we can get people to focus on fruits and vegetables and more healthy foods, we’ll be better in terms of our healthcare situation. – Tom Vilsack
  • The most common objection that I hear to walking as exercise is that it’s too easy, that only sweaty, strenuous activity offers real benefits.

  • Looking at affordable health care, I think it is important that we look not only at prescription drugs, but also make sure that there is a major focus on health care. – Kendrick Meek

  • It is time to end the discrimination against people who need treatment for chemical addiction. It is time for Congress to deal with our Nation’s number one public health problem. – Jim Ramstad
  • I am not against all forms of high-tech medicine. Drugs and surgeries have a secure place in the treatment of serious health conditions. But modern American medicine treats almost every health condition as if it were an emergency. – Andrew Weil
  • It’s easier to lecture women on sexual morality than it is to explain why all Americans shouldn’t have comprehensive, fair, and equal health care coverage. – Martha Plimpton
  • My personal goals are to be happy, healthy and to be surrounded by loved ones. – Kiana Tom
  • I hope for your help to explore and protect the wild ocean in ways that will restore the health and, in so doing, secure hope for humankind. Health to the ocean means health for us. – Sylvia Earle

  • AIDS is a plague – numerically, statistically and by any definition known to modern public health – though no one in authority has the guts to call it one. – Larry Kramer
  • Measles is probably the best argument for why there needs to be global health, and why we have to think about it as a global public good. Because in a sense, measles is the canary in the coal mine for immunization. It is, you know, highly transmissible. The vaccine costs 15 cents, so it’s not – you know, shouldn’t be an issue in terms of cost. – Seth Berkley
  • So I can’t show you how, exactly, health care is a basic human right. But what I can argue is that no one should have to die of a disease that is treatable. – Paul Farmer
  • True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. – William Penn

  • We cannot continue. Our pension costs and health care costs for our employees are going to bankrupt this city. – Michael Bloomberg
  • As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay. – Sallust
  • I like being a foreigner. For me, to live in California is very pleasant – I’m more comfortable not feeling a part of everything, not feeling responsible for the government or the roads or the health system. – Eric Idle
  • It is important for women to have a choice, to have an opportunity to plan their families, because if they don’t, the Republicans have said this is an ownership society. You are on your own, and they’re going to begrudge that child everything, from WIC to a Pell Grant to health insurance. – Gwen Moore
  • The importance of heart health became very real for me when my father died of heart disease seven years ago. Having experienced the loss first hand, I am inspired to do everything I can to break the cycle and prevent families from losing loved ones to this preventable disease. – Monica Potter
  • As a single-payer advocate, I believe that at the end of the day, if a state goes forward and passed an effective single-payer program, it will demonstrate that you can provide quality health care to every man, woman and child in a more cost-effective way. – Bernie Sanders
  • If workers are more insecure, that’s very ‘healthy’ for the society, because if workers are insecure, they won’t ask for wages, they won’t go on strike, they won’t call for benefits; they’ll serve the masters gladly and passively. And that’s optimal for corporations’ economic health. – Noam Chomsky
  • Women’s health needs to be front and center – it often isn’t, but it needs to be. – Cynthia Nixon
  • The aging of the U.S. population is a theme that we believe strongly in and the health care sector is really right in the bulls eye of this particular theme. – John Zimmerman
  • I believe we ought to subsidize some health care for the poor, but Medicare subsidizes everyone’s health care. – James Q. Wilson
  • If we do nothing, as the Republicans suggest, we’re going to see health care costs reach a point where small businesses can’t afford it and families can’t afford it. We’re going to see people turned down from pre-existing conditions. We’re going to find the Medicare doughnut hole – a gap in coverage that’s going to hurt a lot of seniors. – Dick Durbin
  • A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses. – Hippocrates

  • I have two main reasons for retiring. The first is I can no longer play at a level I was accustomed to in the past. That has been very, very frustrating to me throughout this past year. The second one is realizing my health, along with my family, is the most important thing in the world. – Mario Lemieux

  • Health, money. That’s what people worried about in the 14th century as much as today. I find it so much more interesting than the supposed activities of kings, queens, generals. – Peter Ackroyd
  • The groundwork of all happiness is health. – Leigh Hunt
  • Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them. – Johannes Brahms

  • If any country was a mine-shaft canary for the reintroduction of cholera, it was Haiti – and we knew it.

  • In a disordered mind, as in a disordered body, soundness of health is impossible. – Marcus Tullius Cicero
  • Redemption basically is about holistic health, if you want to translate it into modern parlance. What I suggest – based on the Christian tradition but not often preached – is that you can’t enter into the fullness of the Pascal mystery of the redemption unless there is a radical transformation of motivation within you. – Thomas Keating
  • I’ve declined every congressional benefit I could decline, federal health insurance, the retirement program, the 403(b) program, which I think is overly generous. I’ve got self-imposed term limits of six terms if I have the privilege to serve that long. – Scott Rigell

  • Lack of time is a real health killer. – Marilu Henner
  • Women know the financial, social and physical costs of not having access to basic health care. – Martha Plimpton

  • If we cannot provide excellent educational opportunities to all children, safe communities, quality health coverage, or robust and fair avenues towards wealth creation, then our nation will increasingly be in peril. – Cory Booker
  • I’m 58 years old and I just went through 8 back surgeries. They started cutting on me in February 2009, and I was basically bed ridden for almost two years. I got a real dose of reality that if you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything. – Hulk Hogan

  • No matter how old you are, no matter how much you weigh, you can still control the health of your body. – Mehmet Oz
  • I do all I can to maintain good health. I eat mostly plants, as Michael Pollan would say. I get a lot of exercise. I lead a purposeful daily life. I stay current with the dentist. I made the formative decision of where to live over thirty years ago when I settled in a ‘main street’ small town in upstate New York. – James Howard Kunstler
  • I think health care is more about love than about most other things. If there isn’t at the core of this two human beings who have agreed to be in a relationship where one is trying to help relieve the suffering of another, which is love, you can’t get to the right answer here. – Donald Berwick
  • My health is good and it’s up to me to keep it that way. – Charles Kennedy
