15 Quotes by Claudius Galen

I’ve always been a sucker for a good quote and I have a fairly comprehensive knowledge of all the most inspirational and influential philosophers in history, worthy of my attention.

Naturally I thought that I was really well-acquainted with the wisdom of the ancients. Well now, how wrong could I possibly be?

Just recently I was introduced to someone I should have known about, whom for whatever reason had never quite gotten on to my radar screen. That person was Claudius Galen and so I just had to go searching for some of his quotes.

Today I offer you 15 of the quotes by Claudius Galen that I discovered in the process.

In case he’s new to you too dear reader, Claudius Galen, also known as Claudius Galenus or Aelius Galenus, is believed to have been born around 131 AD. Known for being a gifted intellect, he was a Greek physician and a writer on medicine and philosophy.

He went to Rome and revived the ideas of Hippocrates and other Greek doctors. His theories dominated European medicine for well over a millennium. The Romans had shown little interest in the work of Hippocrates and it took Galen to push it forward in Rome.

That his ideas live on says much about his contribution to philosophical thinking. So here are today’s quotes. What do you think?

Quotes by Claudius Galen:

  1. Who are you? What do you want? Where are you going? ~Claudius Galen
  2. Who do you serve and who do you trust? ~Claudius Galen
  3. The physician is Nature’s assistant. ~Claudius Galen
  4. The best physician is also a philosopher. ~Claudius Galen
  5. That which is, grows, while that which is not, becomes. ~Claudius Galen
  6. Look to the nervous system as the key to maximum health. ~Claudius Galen
  7. If sometimes dreams come true, what of our nightmares? ~Claudius Galen
  8. Employment is nature’s physician and is essential to human happiness. ~Claudius Galen
  9. That physician will hardly be thought very careful of the health of others who neglects his own. ~Claudius Galen
  10. Those who are enslaved to their sects are not merely devoid of all sound knowledge, but they will not even stop to learn. ~Claudius Galen
  11. The reason that I keep writing is that all my most powerful messages about the fates of wild places that I care about need to have words as well as images. ~Claudius Galen
  12. The combination of pictures and words together can be really effective, and I began to realise in my career that unless I wrote my own words, then my message was diluted. ~Claudius Galen
  13. The chief merit of language is clearness, and we know that nothing detracts so much from this as do unfamiliar terms. ~Claudius Galen
  14. He who has two cakes of bread, let him dispose of one of them for some flowers of the narcissus; for bread is the food of the body, and the narcissus is the food of the soul. ~Claudius Galen
  15. When we tune in to an especially human way of viewing the landscape powerfully, it resonates with an audience. ~Claudius Galen

21 thought-provoking quotes about sex

Quotes about sex Few subjects can be more controversial than sex, wouldn’t you agree dear reader?

Increasingly less so nowadays possibly, but even today sex is guaranteed to attract peoples’ attention and get them talking.

And everyone has a different opinion as to what is right and wrong when it comes to the subject of sex.

Let’s not forget that sex is a useful marketing tool for anyone seeking to sell almost anything. As the old business saying goes, “Sex sells!”

The truth is we’re all fascinated by sex and we’re driven by a need for sex. The instinct for procreation is within us all.

Men and women may look at sex differently but Nature has programmed us all with the urge to procreate.

We all have needs in that direction. Men just need the opportunity to be ready for sex, whilst women above all need to feel secure.

Nevertheless, given favourable circumstances, both men and women are capable of enjoying sex. Which is reasonable given that it is, after all, quite natural, isn’t it?

However, the obvious question for me is, “Can there be anything more absurd than two people uncontrollably engaged in the act of sex?” It’s as if God has played a joke on us all. What do you think?

Here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about sex to help you form an opinion, if you haven’t got one already.

Quotes about sex:

  1. Sex is emotion in motion. ~Mae West
  2. Sex is God’s joke on human beings. ~Bette Davis
  3. Sex without love is merely healthy exercise. ~Robert A. Heinlein
  4. Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature. ~Marilyn Monroe
  5. I would rather have a cup of tea than sex. ~Boy George
  6. Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place. ~Billy Crystal
  7. Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go it’s pretty damn good. ~Woody Allen
  8. Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets. ~Andy Warhol
  9. The big difference between sex for money and sex for free is that sex for money usually costs a lot less. ~Brendan Behan
  10. Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power. ~Oscar Wilde
  11. Sex is always about emotions. Good sex is about free emotions; bad sex is about blocked emotions. ~Deepak Chopra
  12. Everything is about sex and that’s fine for me. I’m not saying I don’t like it. But I don’t think it should be everywhere, where kids are exposed to everything sexual. Because they have to have some innocence; there’s just no innocence left. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  13. There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain. ~Audrey Hepburn
  14. An intellectual is a person who’s found one thing that’s more interesting than sex. ~Aldous Huxley
  15. I haven’t trusted polls since I read that 62% of women had affairs during their lunch hour. I’ve never met a woman in my life who would give up lunch for sex. ~Erma Bombeck
  16. I blame my mother for my poor sex life. All she told me was ‘the man goes on top and the woman underneath.’ For three years my husband and I slept in bunk beds. ~Joan Rivers
  17. Sex appeal is fifty per cent what you’ve got and fifty per cent what people think you’ve got. ~Sophia Loren
  18. To me, it’s not the end of the world if I end up not being with someone. I love romance. I love sex. I love men’s company, but I don’t feel I have to be married. Men are a wonderful part of life, like chocolate. But my life goes on whether they’re there or not. ~Jerry Hall
  19. In my day we didn’t have sex education, we just picked up what we could off the television. ~Victoria Wood
  20. I don’t know what sex appeal is. I don’t think you can have sex appeal knowingly. The people who seduce me personally are the people who seem not to know they’re seductive, and not to know they have sex appeal. ~Omar Sharif
  21. AIDS obliges people to think of sex as having, possibly, the direst consequences: suicide or murder. ~Susan Sontag

15 Quotes by Muhammad Ali

Many people imagine they’re famous but few experience genuine fame and the universal recognition that it brings with it.

One such person is the legendary, three-time world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali.

Born Cassius Clay, he rose above his humble beginnings to become one of the most recognizable and respected faces on the planet. He was also an inspiration to us all.

As well as being a respected sportsman he was also a respected thinker.

Consequently, the many memorable and thought-provoking quotes he left us, continue to offer an insight into the personal philosophy that drove Muhammad Ali to become such a great champion.

I believe the 15 quotes by Muhammad Ali included here today prove my point.

Muhammad Ali was driven to become a champion and if his philosophy worked for him, then it can work for you too.

  3. He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. ~Muhammad Ali
  4. Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~Muhammad Ali
  5. Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which colour does the hating. It’s just plain wrong. ~Muhammad Ali
  6. Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even. ~Muhammad Ali
  7. It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe. ~Muhammad Ali
  8. I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion. ~Muhammad Ali

7 inspirational quotes about marriage

Inspirational quotes about marriageMarriage can be a thorny subject for some and the source of great pleasure for others. If a successful marriage is your aim then you’ll need to master the art of compromise, as well as choosing a life partner for whom you have the greatest respect and whose company you enjoy.

Friendship is at the heart of any successful marriage and friendship is a relationship of equals.

That means the power dynamic in your relationship must be balanced. Both parties must feel that their needs are being met.

You’re a team and as with all teams, each of you has a role to play. One person cannot be expected to bear the burden of doing everything whilst the other person does nothing. That’s not fair, nor is it sustainable.

A successful marriage can be your greatest investment. Choose your partner wisely and a successful relationship can be yours; fail to choose carefully and it could prove to be painful for all concerned.

So today I offer you seven inspirational quotes about marriage to help you reflect on what is one of life’s great institutions.

Remember this; choose well and nurture your relationship and it can last a lifetime.

Find the right partner and you’ll appreciate their presence in your life with each passing year and much more so as you get older.

Inspirational quotes about marriage:

  1. By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher. ~Socrates
  2. Happy is the man who finds a true friend and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife. ~Franz Schubert
  3. It is not a lack of love but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
  4. My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me. ~Winston Churchill
  5. Don’t marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can’t live without. ~James Dobson
  6. The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they’re right if you love to be with them all the time. ~Julia Child
  7. Every good relationship, especially marriage, is based on respect. If it’s not based on respect, nothing that appears to be goodwill last very long. ~Amy Grant

15 Quotes by Moms Mabley

I must confess that until relatively recently I was not familiar with the work of African American comedienne Jackie “Moms” Mabley.

However, I stumbled on her work by accident on YouTube and I was intrigued by her. So naturally, I went in search of some information about her, as well as some quotes by Moms Mabley.

Born Loretta Mary Aiken, she adopted the stage name Moms Mabley and she was a veteran of the Chitlin’ Circuit of African-American vaudeville.

She also appeared on legendary American television shows such as The Ed Sullivan Show and The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. In fact, she’s also one of the earliest examples of women in comedy.

Born in 1894, Moms Mabley was one of 16 children and like most African Americans of her day, particularly women, she’d had a tough early life.

At the encouragement of her grandmother, she ran away and joined a travelling minstrel show where she sang and entertained. Her stage persona was that of an older, dishevelled woman.

Certainly, she was a woman on whom life had left its mark. For instance, by age of 14, she had been raped twice (at age 11, by an elderly black man, and age 13, by a white sheriff) and had two children who were given up for adoption.

At the age of 27, she came out as a lesbian becoming one of the first openly gay comedians. That wouldn’t have been easy in the less enlightened age in which she lived and earned a living.

So if you’re not familiar with Moms Mabley, I recommend you take a closer look at her work, but not before you read these 15 quotes by Moms Mabley.

Quotes by Moms Mabley:

  1. Quit it if you can’t do nothin’ with it. ~Moms Mabley
  2. Use those brains that God put in your head. ~Moms Mabley
  3. It’s no disgrace to be old but damn if it isn’t inconvenient. ~Moms Mabley
  4. [On old age:] You wake up one morning and you got it. ~Moms Mabley
  5. [Advice to children crossing the street] Damn the lights. Watch the cars. The lights ain’t never killed nobody. ~Moms Mabley
  6. You know Moms has been accused of liking young men and I’m guilty. ~Moms Mabley
  7. Any time you see me with my arms around an old man, I’m holding him for the police. ~Moms Mabley
  8. My husband was so ugly, he used to stand outside the doctor’s office and make people sick. ~Moms Mabley
  9. Love is like playing checkers. You have to know which man to move. ~Moms Mabley
  10. Ain’t nothin’ an ol’ man can do but bring me a message from a young one. ~Moms Mabley
  11. I don’t want nothing old, but some old money. Buy me some young ideas. That’s what I’m gonna do with it. ~Moms Mabley
  12. The teenagers aren’t all bad. I love ’em if nobody else does. There ain’t nothing wrong with young people. Jus’ quit lyin’ to ’em. ~Moms Mabley
  13. Never lose your head, not even for a minute. You need your head. Your brain’s in it. ~Moms Mabley
  14. Without that basic foundation in showmanship, an act can’t remain at the top. Half of the children nowadays don’t even know how to take a bow. ~Moms Mabley
  15. Black women, white women; all of them. I’m colorblind. I don’t know the difference. I only know you’re a human being and you’re my children. ~Moms Mabley

7 inspirational quotes about happiness

Quotes about happinessIf I were to conduct a survey of readers on the question of happiness, I’m fairly sure that most people would say that whilst they want to be happy, they have yet to achieve that state of mind consistently.

Why is that do you think?

I think it’s because we’re always chasing what we haven’t got.

Being happy requires us to be content with what we’ve got. If we’re always chasing more then by definition we can’t be content with what we’ve got, can we?

So if you want to be happy, then I think the trick is to learn to enjoy whatever it is that you’ve actually got, rather than fretting about those things that you’d like to possess but don’t right now.

Take pleasure in the moment, whenever you can, and always look for the positives in any situation.

Happiness is a state of mind. You can choose to be happy or not. It’s all down to the way you choose to look at the world. You can allow things to bother you or you can say, “I’m not going to worry about stuff I can’t change, I’ll just focus on enjoying my life for what it is and make the best of it.”

Here are 7 inspirational quotes about happiness to help you think about what it all means.

Quotes about happiness:

  1. I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. ~Martha Washington
  2. It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere. ~Agnes Repplier
  3. Happiness is not something readymade. It comes from your own actions. ~Dalai Lama
  4. Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to hunt for happiness. ~William E. Gladstone
  5. Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. ~Denis Waitley
  6. There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will. ~Epictetus
  7. Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. ~Jim Rohn

How to deal with criticism in the workplace

How to deal with criticism in the workplaceHave you ever had a problem dealing with criticism in the workplace, dear reader?

If you have, you’re not alone.

Most of us can be a little sensitive when we’re criticised by other people, particularly in the workplace. That’s natural and I struggle with it just as much as the next person.

However, over the years I’ve learned that criticism comes in two types, as follows:-

  1. Constructive criticism; and
  2. Destructive criticism

What’s the difference?

People who offer constructive criticism are genuinely trying to help, even if that isn’t immediately obvious.

However just because they’re trying to help doesn’t necessarily mean they’re right in what they’re saying. I’ll get back to that point shortly.

When you’re being subjected to destructive criticism then someone is just having a go at you.

That may be to bolster their own ego or they may not like you very much and so can’t resist the temptation to belittle you or just generally make you feel uncomfortable.

Remember there are people who get off on other peoples’ discomfort and having a go a people. These are the haters and the trolls. They exist in the workplace, as well as on social media.

How to deal with constructive criticism:

When you’re on the receiving end of criticism, don’t take any of it personally. Remember you’re bigger than that.

Just remain calm; listen to what’s being said; consider the person saying it; and of course the rationale behind their comment.

As you absorb what has been said to you, ask yourself this question “Is this person being constructive or destructive?

If you feel they’re being constructive in offering their comment then the next question to ask yourself is, “Do they have a fair point?

In answering that question you must be really honest with yourself.

Remember it’s a sign of maturity when you can acknowledge your own inexperience and mistakes.

And you can’t learn from your mistakes unless you recognise them first.

So if after careful reflection you feel that they do have a fair point then take it on-board and use it as a learning opportunity.

At this point thank your critic for the feedback and decide how you might use it to improve and be better at what you do.

You might even ask your critic for suggestions if you think they can help you.

Even constructive critics are not always right:

Not every self-appointed critic has a universal monopoly on knowhow and common sense, however well-intentioned they may be. Even so-called experts get stuff wrong occasionally.

So in reflecting on any constructive criticism offered, your conclusion might be that they don’t have a fair point. And as long as you’re being really honest with yourself, it’s perfectly reasonable to say, “You know what? I think they’re wrong.

If that’s the case then be polite, thank them for their feedback and agree to disagree if necessary.

Accept that they offered their comment in good faith and their intentions were honourable but just move on, without any sense of feeling hurt just because someone had the temerity to question your approach.

They’re entitled to their opinion but you don’t have to accept it.

How to deal with destructive criticism:

If someone is attempting to be destructive in their criticism then don’t rise to the bait. Just smile politely and move on.

Do not give anyone the satisfaction of a reaction or signs that they’ve got to you. That’s the oxygen on which they feed. It’s the dopamine hit which they crave.

You’re better than that so don’t allow yourself to get drawn into their game. They’re unworthy of a reaction or any of your emotional energy.

And never allow such people to chip away at your self-esteem.

That’s what they’re trying to do, so know that and as you’re smiling just say to yourself, “I’m better than you and your attempt to have a go at me won’t get you anywhere. So stop wasting your time and mine.

Conclusion:

Recognise that criticism has two forms. Either way never take any of it personally, even if you suspect your critic is being personal.

If your critic is being constructive, then be honest with yourself and question whether your critic has a point. If they do have a point then you must learn from it.

If your critic is being destructive then do not give then the satisfaction of a reaction. Just smile and move on.

And if you’re not sure whether they’re being constructive or destructive? Give them the benefit of the doubt, assume they’re being constructive and act accordingly.

Why passion is the key to success

Why passion is the key to success

Have you ever wondered why passion is the key to success, dear reader?

If success is your aim then received wisdom suggests that you should find your passion. You’ve heard that before I’m sure. However the phrase is now spoken so often that it’s has become a bit of a cliché, don’t you think?

And of course, once something becomes a cliché then it’s hard to take it seriously, wouldn’t you agree?

Then again, just because something has become a cliché doesn’t in itself mean that it lacks an underlying truth.

From experience I can tell you that if you really want to succeed at anything then whatever it is must matter to you. And I’m not talking about mattering just a little bit. I mean it really, really, really must matter to you. It must be as important to you as the air that you breathe.

You can call it a ‘passion’; you can call it something with which you have ‘a sense of connection’; or you can call it your ‘Why’. Whatever you call it, you’ll only have the determination to see it through as far as it goes if it actually matters to you.

How lucky are those people who find something in life that matters so much that it drives them to make their mark? To be recognised for making a significant contribution to their chosen pursuit.

That pursuit could be painting or writing or playing a musical instrument. It may be computers or fast cars. It may be starting a business and making serious money. Whatever it is, it’s that special something which for those people is not only interesting and absorbing but rewarding too.

It becomes so important to them that it would be their hobby if they couldn’t make a living at it. Because they love it so much, it’s not really working at all, for them it’s a pleasure.

It’s something for which they have a sense of enthusiasm or ‘passion’ and instinctively they recognise that it’s what they’re good at. And of course, because they love it, they practise and keep practising. And because they practise they hone their skills and they get even better at it. This creates a virtuous circle.

Constant practise will help you excel and reach the very top of your game.

Sadly for most people, that special something is something they never find.

However, if you’ve yet to find that special something, you must never stop looking. One day you might just stumble upon it and it’s never too late for you to become the person you really could be.

That’s why passion is the key to success.
