Famous quotes containing the words centre, health and/or sciences:

    Freedom to think our own thoughts, freedom to utter them, freedom to live out the promptings of our inner life ultimated in this convention, was termed a monstrosity of the 19th century. What was it?—the legitimate out-birth of the eternal law of progress. This reformation underlies every other; it is the only healthful centre around which hope of humanity can revolve.
    Harriot K. Hunt (1805–1875)

    It is unconscionable that we ration health care by the ability to pay.... your heart breaks. Health care should be a given.
    Kathryn Anastos (b. 1950)

    Normally, the sciences distance themselves from life and the return to it via a detour.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
