Although Alchemy has now fallen into contempt, and is even considered a thing of the past, the physicain should not be influenced by such judgements.
Paracelsus

But is not He who created it for the sake of the sick body more than the remedy? And is not He who cures the soul, which is more than the body, greater?
Paracelsus

Dreams are not without meaning wherever thay may come from-from fantasy, from the elements, or from other inspiration.
Paracelsus

Dreams must be heeded and accepted. For a great many of them come true.
Paracelsus

For it is we who must pray for our daily bread, and if He grants it to us, it is only through our labour, our skill and preparation.
Paracelsus

For one country is different from another; its earth is different, as are its stones, wines, bread, meat, and everything that grows and thrives in a specific region.
Paracelsus

From time immemorial artistic insights have been revealed to artists in their sleep and in dreams, so that at all times they ardently desired them.
Paracelsus

However, anyone to whom this happens should not leave his room upon awakening, should speak to no-one, but remain alone and sober until everything comes back to him, and he recalls the dream.
Paracelsus

If we want to make a statement about a man's nature on the basis of his physiognomy, we must take everything into account; it is in his distress that a man is tested, for then his nature is revealed.
Paracelsus

Many have said of Alchemy, that it is for the making of gold and silver. For me such is not the aim, but to consider only what virtue and power may lie in medicines.
Paracelsus

Medicine is not only a science; it is also an art. It does not consist of compounding pills and plasters; it deals with the very processes of life, which must be understood before they may be guided.
Paracelsus

Medicine rests upon four pillars - philosophy, astronomy, alchemy, and ethics.
Paracelsus

Nature also forges man, now a gold man, now a silver man, now a fig man, now a bean man.
Paracelsus

Often the remedy is deemed the highest good because it helps so many.
Paracelsus

Once a disease has entered the body, all parts which are healthy must fight it: not one alone, but all. Because a disease might mean their common death. Nature knows this; and Nature attacks the disease with whatever help she can muster.
Paracelsus

Poison is in everything, and no thing is without poison. The dosage makes it either a poison or a remedy.
Paracelsus

The dose makes the poison.
Paracelsus

The dreams which reveal the supernatural are promises and messages that God sends us directly: they are nothing but His angels, His ministering spirits , who usually appear to us when we are in a great predicament.
Paracelsus

The interpretation of dreams is a great art.
Paracelsus

The physician must give heed to the region in which the patient lives, that is to say, to its type and peculiarities.
