“I always start off thinking I know what is important, and it’s never what’s important, it’s always something else… I think you get ambushed by the truth”
“I’ve resigned myself. I’m functioning within the parameters of my mediocrity”
“If you can’t comfort the afflicted, then afflict the comfortable”
“Look how many things there are which I don’t want!”
“Happiness is less a matter of getting what we want, than of wanting what we have”
“Marketing is the professionalisation of insincerity”
“When we spend our own money we feel we are investing part of ourselves in what we buy”
“Hospices are dying organisations: a case of assisted suicide?”
1. Events lead to legacies
2. Giving donations corrupts patient/clinician relationship
3. Hospices are about living not dying
“Growing older you never like, because it’s sadder, because you’re getting closer to dying, and who wants that?”
“Imagination is the quality that facilitates compassion”
“Sometimes even a blind chicken finds some grain”
“Tomorrow is another country…
… yesterday is another solar system”
“Numbers ask questions, they don’t give answers”
