"Some children are born from heaven and others are born from hell, because each human being has his inherent tendencies, and these tendencies belong to his spirit, and indicate the state in which he existed before he was born." ~ Paracelsus
As a true physician he had also this to say about medicine;
"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."
"Every physician must be rich in knowledge, and not only of that which is written in books; his patients should be his book, they will never mislead him."
"Men who are devoid of the power of spiritual perception are unable to recognize anything that cannot be seen externally."
