Relief Quotes

Morphine and state relief are the same. You go dopey, feel better and are worse off.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Living is a disease from which sleep gives us relief eight hours a day.

To render relief to the distressed and to help the oppressed make amends for great sins.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

You are outside life, you are above life, you have miseries which the ordinary man does not know, you exceed the normal level, and it is for this that men refuse to forgive you, you poison their peace of mind, you undermine their stability. You have irrepressible pains whose essence is to be inadaptable to any known state, indescribable in words. You have repeated and shifting pains, incurable pains, pains beyond imagining, pains which are neither of the body nor of the soul, but which partake of both. And I share your suffering, and I ask you: who dares to ration our relief?... We are not going to kill ourselves just yet. In the meantime, leave us the hell alone.

Antoine Marie Joseph Artaud

The greatest error of all the rest is the mistaking or misplacing of the last or farthest end of knowledge: for men have entered into a desire of learning and knowledge, sometimes upon a natural curiosity and inquisitive appetite; sometimes to entertain their minds with variety and delight; sometimes for ornament and reputation; and sometimes to enable them to victory of wit and contradiction; and most times for lucre and profession; and seldom sincerely to give a true account of their gift of reason, to the benefit and use of men: as if there were sought in knowledge a couch whereupon to rest a searching and restless spirit; or a tarrasse, for a wandering and variable mind to walk up and down with a fair prospect; or a tower of state, for a proud mind to raise itself upon; or a fort or commanding ground, for strife and contention; or a shop, for profit or sale; and not a rich storehouse, for the glory of the Creator and the relief of man's estate.

Francis Bacon

I dont know that Ive ever fit in, ever. And I say that not in a bad way. I mean, in some ways, its a relief not to fit in, because you get to look at different sides equally. Like I dont know that I have always found my tribe. My tribe are the people who dont feel like they fit in. And frankly, I think that a lot of people dont feel like they fit in.

Jennifer Beals

There is no legitimate use whatsoever for marijuana. This is not medicine. This is bogus witchcraft. It has no place in medicine, no place in pain relief...

Robert Laurence

Yes, I dont know why, but I have never been disappointed, and I often was in the early days, without feeling at the same time, or a moment later, an undeniable relief.

Samuel Beckett

Can I see another's woe, And not be in sorrow too? Can I see another's grief, And not seek for kind relief?

William Blake
