He has supreme vanity. No matter how much he admires the old writer, he wants to beat him.” ~ William Faulkner
  27. “When you’re younger you have a lot of ideas and you’re probably more insecure, all those things. I work with young actors now and I see their insecurities and I make fun of them.

The astronaut gets all the credit, he gets the trip to the moon, but he had nothing to do with the creation of the rocket, or navigating the ship. He’s the privileged one who gets to drive to the moon. I feel that way in some of these more difficult operations, like the heart transplant.” ~ Denton Cooley
  35. “Studio press agents make up anything they want to, and reporters go along with it. One flack created the legend that I had been blown up in an air crash during the war, and my face had to be put back together by way of plastic surgery. If it is a ‘bionic face,’ why didn’t they do a better job of it?” ~ Jack Palance

It’s already become so chronic there’s no chance to fix it so I can play without pain.” ~ Marat Safin

It remained scarred, distorted, ‘ugly’ or inferior the person himself acted out this role in his behaviour regardless of the changes in physical appearance. If this ‘face of personality’ could be reconstructed, if old emotional scars could be removed, then the person himself changed, even without facial plastic surgery.” ~ Maxwell Maltz
  39. “Simple intervention – the time spent with a patient – is a very powerful ingredient of the patient-doctor contract. The evidence is against the traditions such as surgery for back pain being true – the evidence says it doesn’t work.” ~ Marni Jackson
  40. “Dealing with adversity is like preparing for surgery. By putting our faith in what the doctor has said, we believe we will be better off if we have the surgery. But that does not make it any less painful. By submitting to the hand of a surgeon, we are saying that our ultimate goal is health, even at the cost of pain. Adversity is the same way. It is a means to an end. It is God’s tool for the advancement of our spiritual lives.” ~ Charles Stanley , Surgery quotes God
  41. “God gave us intestines for a reason. I’m not keen on surgery. It’s too extreme. All it took was one of those plastic surgery shows to see how violent it is.” ~ Kirstie Alley

  45. “Geology does better in reclothing dry bones and revealing lost creations, than in tracing veins of lead and beds of iron; astronomy better in opening to us the houses of heaven than in teaching navigation; surgery better in investigating organiation than in setting limbs; only it is ordained that, for our encouragement, every step we make in science adds something to its practical applicabilities.” ~ John Ruskin
  46. “There’s not a lot of tolerance for people like me… To avoid ignorance and bullying, I’ve had to hide the fact that I’m a troll. You have no idea how much time and money I’ve spent on electrolysis and hair dye and reconstructive surgery so I can look like this.” ~ Jon Cryer

  47. “I was scared that no one would hire me. At that time, there was still a stigma attached to it. A big stigma. Actually, I think I was healthier after the operation than some people who have bypass surgery because I was completely cured. But when you mentioned “heart transplant,” you got a very negative reaction. It triggered people’s imaginations, and not in a good way.” ~ Robert Altman
  48. “I have nothing to do with comics. I know nothing about comics. I am aware of the importance of comics, but they’re not within my world. Not because I feel that I’m above it, but just that micro-surgery is not in my world either. Is that a deficit or is that an advantage?” ~ Christoph Waltz
  49. “A doctor’s authority in America often exceeds his or her knowledge. Whole bodies of knowledge in healing are ignored because they are unorthodox and non-medical.

Then you pop it all back in, sew yourself shut and perform.” ~ Gerard Way
  52. “I spent the first forty years of my life making major interventions into other people’s lives, and I have an idea of the limitations of that method. I see a major event as rather like major surgery. It is a moment, but whether people use it, whether people go with it, needs to be seen.” ~ Rachel Naomi Remen
  53. “I said yes to so many things, from a sex change to gastric by-pass surgery, so it’s always paid off for me.” ~ Jim Carrey

  57. “The interesting thing with acting, actually, is that you get to be so many different people that you get to do so much research on so many different things that I’ve learned so much about brain surgery and about astrophysicist-type of things and traveling to amazing parts of the world.” ~ Carla Gugino
  58. “Your muscles cannot get “longer” without some rather radical orthopedic surgery.” ~ Mark Rippetoe

  60. “If you go to a therapist, they say, ‘Are you sure? How do you feel about your wrinkles?’ And I say, ‘I don’t know, because I don’t really see them.’ I see my hands, but I don’t see my face, so it’s not a torment. I only see it for five minutes in the morning when I brush my teeth! When you read women’s magazines you always read about this drama of getting old, about anti-aging cream and plastic surgery and whatever else. But I think if you’re independent, like I have grown to be, it’s welcome.” ~ Isabella Rossellini
