Words That Heal, And Others that …

Healing Words – Part Four

Majid Ali, M.D.

* My breath is my own. So I own it. Your breath is your own. You might as well own it.

* Slow breathing lungs are kind to the heart, as a slow beating heart is kind to the brain.

* If it is true, as some ancient sage declared, that everyone is born with a finite number of breath, then I want to breathe slow – for a self-evident reason.

* May your breath be your own.


* We are not what we eat. We are what we converse. Eating is a small part of one’s being, or must be if it is not so. What shall s convrse about? That’s work of a life time.


* It is hard to think for oneself, but is a load of fun when it begins.

* I celebrate my ADHD. I never know how I will surprise myself. I do count my blessings though. My ADHD is not associated with depression, at least not yet.


* The bliss of drug companies is that doctors are eager to prescribe their drugs but reluctant to think about what they prescribe.

* Aeschylus said, “Call no man happy till he is dead.” How did he know that dead are happy?, I wonder.

* Beyond every bad is badder. Beyond every badder there is good. Or is it the other way around. Let’s go and ask some silent river.


* Albert Einstein, I read somewhere, was not good at counting. How could that be? I wondered. Years later, I read these words by him: “Many of the things you can count don’t count. Many of the things you can’t count really count.” Count me among those who count him among the counted few.

Thomas Jefferson said, “Never spend money before you have it.” How can anyone spend money that he does not have?, I wondered years ago when I first read Tom’s words. He had so much to learn from President Obama, didn’t he?
