Bon Mot

Leo Buscaglia speaks of an elderly woman who was being seen for a serious health issue. She indicated that she was willing to undergo any treatment, that she simply wanted to be well again. Her doctor commented, "I'm not a magician." The woman looked at him sternly and snapped, "You just provide the medical care, and I'll provide the magic."

Positive will power (or blissful stubbornness) can work magic ;)
