Mental Health Quotes

Five of the best book quotes about mental health
  1. #1
    “The thing about having a mental breakdown is that no matter how obvious it is that you’re having one, it is somehow not obvious to you. I’m fine, you think. So what if I watched TV for twenty-four straight hours yesterday. I’m not falling apart. I’m just lazy. Why it’s better to think yourself lazy than think yourself in distress, I’m not sure. But it was better. More than better: it was vital.”
  2. #2
    “There are all kinds of psychological disorders in the West that don’t exist in Asia.”
  3. #3
    “Macbeth: How does your patient, doctor?
    Doctor: Not so sick, my lord, as she is troubled with thick-coming fancies that keep her from rest.
    Macbeth: Cure her of that! Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with some sweet oblivious antidote cleanse the stuffed bosom of that perilous stuff which weighs upon her heart.
    Doctor: Therein the patient must minister to himself.”
  4. #4
    “Sanity is not statistical.”
  5. #5
    “You do not need to be a victim of worry. Reduced to its simplest form, what is worry? It is simply an unhealthy and destructive mental habit.”
