Welcome to Truth in Quotes

I have been collecting quotes for years and decided to share them on this website. I am a follower of Jesus Christ, a Clinical Pharmacist, a College of Pharmacy faculty member, and a passionate travel addict. I have only included quotes I agree with (or at least mostly agree with). Regarding drug therapy, I believe we are an overmedicated society and I like to say I perform drug-ectomies for a living. As Einstein said, I believe Religion without Science is blind and Science without Religion is lame. I hope you enjoy my collection at least half as much as I do !

But know also, man has an inborn craving for medicine. Generations of heroic dosing have given his tissues such a thirst for drugs. As I once before remarked, the desire to take medicine is one feature which distinguishes man, the animal, from his fellow creatures. It is really one of the most serious difficulties with which we have to contend. Even in minor ailments, which would yield to dieting or to simple home remedies, the doctor's visit is thought to be complete without the prescription.
