Patch Adams
All of the problems of the world are due to men. You can't name one problem in history due to women. No matter how badly men behave - with their wars, their greed and their nasty acts - no matter how badly they behave, the women are raising the children.
Adams quotes
I think my government are fascists. I feel that if we don't change from a society that worships money and power over to one that worships compassion and generosity, there is no hope for human survival this century.
I'll give you an example - in Russia most of the hospitals don't have any pain medicine, they don't have any money. So if you're with kids with cancer, they can have metastases to the bone; which some say is the worst pain a human can experience. So a mother can be in a room with a child who hasn't stopped screaming in five months. ...85% of the time I walk in there as a clown they'll stop screaming."

Adams Patch quotes
The medical professionals are a lot more comfortable calling it 'depression' than calling it 'loneliness.'
Adams Patch
Admitting he never had any religion, he calls a friend his "god" and the love of other people, God's spirit.
