Florence Nightingale Quote: “The only English patients I have ever known refuse tea, have been typhus cases; and the first sign of their getting better was their craving again for tea.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “She said the object and color in the materials around us actually have a physical effect on us, on how we feel.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “The very elements of what constitutes good nursing are as little understood for the well as for the sick. The same laws of health, or of nursing, for they are in reality the same, obtain among the well as among the sick.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “The time is come when women must do something more than the “domestic hearth,” which means nursing the infants, keeping a pretty house, having a good dinner and an entertaining party.”

Florence Nightingale Quote: “If I could give you information of my life it would be to show how a woman of very ordinary ability has been led by God in strange and unaccustomed paths to do in His service what He has done in her. And if I could tell you all, you would see how God has done all, and I nothing. I have worked hard, very hard, that is all; and I have never refused God anything.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “The specific disease doctrine is the grand refuge of weak, uncultured, unstable minds, such as now rule in the medical profession. There are no specific diseases; there are specific disease conditions.”

Florence Nightingale Quote: “By mortifying vanity we do ourselves no good. It is the want of interest in our life which produces it; by filling up that want of interest in our life we can alone remedy it.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Woman has nothing but her affections, – and this makes her at once more loving and less loved.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “People talk about imitating Christ, and imitate Him in the little trifling formal things, such as washing the feet, saying His prayer, and so on; but if anyone attempts the real imitation of Him, there are no bounds to the outcry with which the presumption of that person is condemned.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Instead of wishing to see more doctors made by women joining what there are, I wish to see as few doctors, either male or female, as possible. For, mark you, the women have made no improvement they have only tried to be “men” and they have only succeeded in being third-rate men.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “The first possibility of rural cleanliness lies in water supply.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “There are no specific diseases only specific disease conditions.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Volumes are now written and spoken upon the effect of the mind upon the body. Much of it is true. But I wish a little more was thought of the effect of the body on the mind.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “I can stand out the war with any man.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Moral activity? There is scarcely such a thing possible! Everything is sketchy. The world does nothing but sketch.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by color, and light, we do know this, that they have an actual physical effect.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “That Religion is not devotion, but work and suffering for the love of God; this is the true doctrine of Mystics.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “The great reformers of the world turn into the great misanthropists, if circumstances or organization do not permit them to act.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Never to allow a patient to be waked, intentionally or accidentally, is a sine qua non of all good nursing.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Asceticism is the trifling of an enthusiast with his power, a puerile coquetting with his selfishness or his vanity, in the absence of any sufficiently great object to employ the first or overcome the last.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Heaven is neither a place nor a time.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Law is no explanation of anything; law is simply a generalization, a category of facts. Law is neither a cause, nor a reason, nor a power, nor a coercive force. It is nothing but a general formula, a statistical table.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “At present we live to impede each other’s satisfactions; competition, domestic life, society, what is it all but this?”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “It is very well to say “be prudent, be careful, try to know each other.” But how are you to know each other?”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Can the “word” be pinned down to either one period or one church? All churches are, of course, only more or less unsuccessful attempts to represent the unseen to the mind.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “There is a physical, not moral, impossibility of supplying the wants of the intellect in the state of civilisation at which we have arrived.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “No woman has excited “passions” among women more than I have. Yet I leave no school behind me.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Christ, if he had been a woman, might have been nothing but a great complainer.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “The account he gives of nurses beats everything that even I know of. This young prophet says that they are all drunkards, without exception, Sisters and all, and that there are but two whom the surgeon can trust to give the patients their medicines.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “The family uses people, not for what they are, nor for what they are intended to be, but for what it wants them for- its own uses. It thinks of them not as what God has made them, but as the something which it has arranged that they shall be.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “A want of the habit of observing and an inveterate habit of taking averages are each of them often equally misleading.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “Perhaps, if prematurely we dismiss ourselves from this world, all may even have to be suffered through again – the premature birth may not contribute to the production of another being, which must be begun again from the beginning.”
Florence Nightingale Quote: “What cruel mistakes are sometimes made by benevolent men and women in matters of business about which they can know nothing and think they know a great deal.”

Florence Nightingale Quote: “I must strive to see only God in my friends, and God in my cats.”
