"Dr. Quimby's writings are not to establish any religious creed or bolster up any belief of man, but they are simply the outpouring of a truth that sees the sick cast into prison for no other cause than a belief in the opinions of man, there to linger out a miserable existence, driven from society into the dark cell of disease where no friend is allowed to enter to soothe their woes.  The knowledge of this condition is known to him from their own feelings and calls forth his place in their behalf.  He stands to the sick as an attorney to a criminal, a friend.  This is what he believes Jesus intended to communicate to the world when he said they that are well need not a physician, but they that are sick.  So he pleads their cases and destroys their opinion, breaks the bars of death and sets the prisoner free.  This was Jesus' religion, that he believed, taught, and practiced."  (From the Preface of "Questions and Answers.")
