    Hippocrates Quotes

    Greek physician

    Quotes by Hippocrates

    • Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness.
    • Walking is man's best medicine.
    • Idleness and lack of occupation tend - nay are dragged - towards evil.
    • As to diseases make a habit of two things - to help, or at least, to do no harm.
    • There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.
    • Things that are holy are revealed only to men who are holy.
    • Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.
    • Many admire, few know.
    • Prayer indeed is good, but while calling on the gods a man should himself lend a hand.
    • A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses.
