Andrew Weil Quotes

Andrew Weil Quotes: The desire to transcend one's own ego boundaries, to share completely, even for a moment, the consciousness of another person must be a universal longing.

Andrew Weil Sayings: We need to accept the seemingly obvious fact that a toxic environment can make people sick and that no amount of medical intervention can protect us. The health care community must become a powerful political lobby for environmental policy and legislation.
