Richard Dooling Quotes

I hope you find these Richard Dooling Quotes inspiring and motivational.

Yet now we are faced with the sickening suspicion that
technology has run ahead of us.
- Richard Dooling

Under Medicare right now, I get paid to put a pacemaker in you,
but I don't get paid to counsel you about end-of-life care.
- Richard Dooling

And it was back in the mid-1980s, and as I point out in a piece,
that was when we are spending about eight percent of
our gross domestic product on health care.
And even then, we had the impression that so much of the excessive,
aggressive medical treatment that took place at the
end of life was not only unnecessary but it was cruel.
- Richard Dooling

Over and over again, financial experts and wonkish
talking heads endeavor to explain these mysterious,
'toxic' financial instruments to us lay folk.
Over and over, they ignobly fail, because we all know
that no one understands credit default obligations and derivatives,
except perhaps Mr. Buffett and the computers who created them.
- Richard Dooling


 

Man is a fire-stealing animal, and we can't help building
machines and machine intelligences,
even if, from time to time, we use them not only to
outsmart ourselves but to bring us right up to the doorstep of Doom.

At times, we forget the magnitude of the havoc we can
wreak by off-loading our minds onto super-intelligent machines,
that is, until they run away from us,
like mad sorcerers' apprentices, and drag us up to
the precipice for a look down into the abyss.
- Richard Dooling

Let's take care of mothers and infants first,
and then let's see what's left over for everybody over 50.
I'm over 50.
If I get sick, I would rather have money spent on children before it's spent on me.
- Richard Dooling

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -
the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.

for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child.

my humanity draws from both,

the lightness and the solidarity,
the ephemeral and the substantial.
The substantial is no more and no less
than the ephemeral - merely different.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

is to play to win, but be cheerful in defeat
and ready to play again.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We fear the unknown,
perhaps more than we fear anything else,
and yet we are, at heart, adventurers.
We seek to expand our realm of knowledge and dominion.
Perhaps we are attempting to overcome and crush the unknown,
but our duel with the unknown is such a one-sided clash
that we must know in our hearts
that our adventure is no more than a child's game.
Perhaps we hope that the unknown
is like the darkness of a cave
and that the brief light of our adventurer's candle
can illuminate the entire cave.
Nonetheless, the path of the adventurer
is a path of joy, while the way of fear is one of suffering.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The River of Life has no meaning, no good, no bad,
no better, no worse, no love, no hate, no fear, no anger, no joy.
The River of Life has no judgment, no expectation.
The River of Life just IS. There is nothing to do.
There is nothing to say.
There is nothing to think.
There is nothing to feel.
The River just flows. The River is the source of all nourishment -
the source of all obstacles.
The River is the source of all life - the source of all death.
The River is the source of all joy - and the source of all sorrow.
Yet the River has no joy - and the River has no sorrow.
The River is just the River.
One can flow harmoniously with the River -
or one can struggle fearfully against the River -
and the River just flows.
One can accept the River - or one can deny the River -
and the River just flows.
One can worship the River of Life - or one can curse the River of Life -
and the River just flows. There is nothing to do - and the River flows.
There is nothing to say - and the River flows.
There is nothing to think - and the River flows.
There is nothing to feel - and the River flows.
The River flows - and all else is our drama.
The River flows - and all else is our invention.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The River of Life is the source of all joy -
and the source of all sorrow.
Yet the River has no joy -
and the River has no sorrow.
The River is just the River.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains.

The Eye-of-the-Storm.
Surrounded by the winds and the rain,
yet peaceful in its own unworldly way -
an unnatural ruddy-cloudy misty-bright kind of way.
Whatever comes next, the eye of the storm is
a moment of serenity among the challenge -
a time for repose and contemplation.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Failure doesn't mean you are a failure it just means
you haven't succeeded yet.
