Text Quotes
Death belongs to the dying and those who love them  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) I think when you think of death as being part of the life cycle and recognize that death is an inevitability for our species because the world has to be renewed with each death, then the hope becomes when it is renewed it will be renewed by people on whom I have had some influence for good.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Death with dignity’ is our society’s expression of the universal yearning to achieve a graceful triumph over the stark and often repugnant finality of life’s last sputterings. But the fact is, death is not a confrontation. It is simply an event in the sequence of nature’s ongoing rhythms.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Though moral axioms to guide the conduct of the practitioner have existed since the beginnings of the profession of healing, Western doctors are most likely to view the Hippocratic Oath of approximately two-and-a-half millennia ago as the first codified set of statements to which they can look for guidance.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) I have not seen much dignity in the process by which we die. The quest to achieve true dignity fails when our bodies fail.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) You know, ever since man had any notion that some of his other people, his colleagues, could be different, could be strange, could be severely depressed or what we now recognize as schizophrenia, he was certain that this kind of illness had to come from evil spirits getting into the body.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) The dignity we seek in dying is not to be found in our final weeks, days or moments but in the way we live and how we are seen by those people whose lives we affect.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) The more personal you are willing to be and the more intimate you are willing to be about the details of your own life, the more universal you are. Everybody needs to be understood. And out of that comes every form of love.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) The growing professional disciplines of medical ethics and bioethics have had a profound impact on researchers, bedside doctors, associations of physicians, and government.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Medical judgment can be taught - laboriously, in long periods of training - but it cannot be neatly handed over as the occasion demands it. It is the irreplaceable and untransferable contribution that the healer makes to the suffering individual who would be healed.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) The dignity we seek in dying must be found in the dignity with which we have lived our lives  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) If we cannot heal in one way, we must learn to heal in another  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Being someone who had had a very difficult childhood, a very difficult adolescence - it had to do with not quite poverty, but close. It had to do with being brought up in a family where no one spoke English, no one could read or write English. It had to do with death and disease and lots of other things. I was a little prone to depression.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) The life sciences contain spiritual values which can never be explained by the materialistic attitude of present day science  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) There is, to be sure, sometimes only a small difference between being alert to possible danger and allowing oneself to become terrified to the point of paralysis by seeming or imagined portents  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) For aging is an art. The years between its first intimations and the time of the ultimate letting go of all earthly things can-if the readiness and resolve are there-be the real harvest of our lives  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) At times, morality can be dismissed as a matter of personal conscience, no matter how widespread its acceptance. Ethics, on the other hand, arises from societal or group commitments to principia of behavior  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Once the notion of depression had begun to dominate the diagnostic armamentarium, it became but a matter of time before patients with relatively mild disorders of mood or anxiety would be entered into it.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) I was, in the 1960s, in a marriage. To use the word ‘bad’ would be perhaps the understatement of the year. It was dreadful.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Both individual fulfillment and the ecological balance of life on this planet are best served by dying when our inherent biology decrees that we do.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Not death but disease is the real enemy; disease, the malign force that requires confrontation. Death is the surcease that comes when the exhausting battle has been lost.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Every hope of successive generations of scholars that order might be constructed from the chaotic mess of medical nomenclature has been frustrated. Even diseases recognized in the same historical period have been given names based on characteristics that have no relation to one another, and thus no common criteria.  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) Death is the surcease that comes when the exhausting battle has been lost  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes) To become comfortable with uncertainty is one of the primary goals in the training of a physician  (Sherwin B Nuland Quotes)
