Alice Tisdale Hobart

  • Affection was not the flower of his spirit but its rootage.

  • There was bondage in love; no one had told her that love took away freedom.

  • ... nothing is so binding as pity.

  • Giving up her home had been a much greater wrench than she had expected. ... She had a curious sense of her own roots twined around the house, as she had once seen a tree's roots around an old shrine. In time the roots had grown into every crevice until shrine and tree were one indestructible entity.

  • Every theory in medicine, if medicine is to remain healthy, must be beaten out on the anvil of skepticism. So do we weed out charlatanism.

  • ... we've got to find a better way to handle the expense of disease. Odd as it may seem, the more efficient we become in eliminating disease, the more our services are out of reach of the people.

  • How much ... did the volume of disease in a nation account for its spirit? If so, the eradication of sickness, as far as it was possible, was a responsibility a democracy must assume for its people.

  • Now she bombarded the soft underbelly of his mind ...

  • We are fast moving toward an aristocracy of health.

  • What is memory for if not to fortify and sustain?

  • To lose faith in oneself is to cease to create; to cease to create is to cease to exist.
