Dr. Bruce Lipton is a leader in bridging science and spirit through his scientific career as a cell biologist, the principles of quantum physics, and his profound wisdom.

He is also author of the popular books, The Biology of Belief, The Honeymoon Effect, and Spontaneous Evolution.

One of Dr. Liptons biggest discoveries is the concept that human beings alter their biology based on their environment and our fate, for the most past, is not determined by our genetic makeup, but through the power of our own minds.

There is now staggering evidence that back up and validate his ideas and concepts. This is fascinating news because it confirms we are able to heal our bodies through changing our thoughts and subconscious beliefs instead of relying on prescription medication.

Dr. Liptons message backs up the law of attraction and how we are the creators of our own reality through biology, quantum physics and ancient spiritual wisdom.

85 Fascinating Quotes by Dr. Bruce Lipton

Here are Bruce Lipton quotes I’ve gathered and organised them by category.

Bruce Lipton Quotes on Quantum Physics

“Matter can simultaneously be defined as a solid (particle) and as an immaterial force field (wave).” – Bruce Lipton

“What quantum physics teaches us is that everything we thought was physical is not physical.” – Bruce Lipton

“Each of us is a spirit in material form.” – Bruce Lipton

“The new physics provides a modern version of ancient spirituality. In a universe made out of energy, everything is entangled; everything is one.” – Bruce Lipton

“They had come to realize that the concept of matter is an illusion, for they now recognized that everything in the Universe is made out of energy. Quantumerfect hereditary molecule. Each DNA strand is normally intertwined with a second.” – Bruce Lipton

“The Universe is one indivisible, dynamic whole in which energy and matter are so deeply entangled it is impossible to consider them as independent elements.” – Bruce Lipton

“Physicists abandoned their belief in a Newtonian, material universe because they had come to realize that the universe is not made of matter suspended in empty space but energy.” – Bruce Lipton

“When two people become entangled, one person will conform to the energy of the other person. When one of them is a healer whose cells are vibrating at a higher level, the client’s cells become entangled, and their energy is lifted. That’s why that old saying, “physician heal thyself,” is so important, even though most don’t understand it: If the physician’s energy is going to influence or, in scientific terms, “entrain” the patient’s, the doctor’s must be higher.” – Bruce Lipton

“In a universe made out of energy, everything is entangled; everything is one.” – Bruce Lipton

“Atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter!” – Bruce Lipton

“At the atomic level, matter does not even exist with certainty; it only exists as a tendency to exist.” – Bruce Lipton

“Science ignores the spiritual realm because it is not amenable to scientific analysis. As importantly, the predictive success of Newtonian theory, emphasizing the primacy of a physical Universe, made the existence of spirit and God an extraneous hypothesis that offered no explanatory principles needed by science.” – Bruce Lipton

“Modern science is predicated on ‘truths’ verified through accurate observation and measurements of physical world phenomena.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on Biology

“No matter how you cut it, biological science is based to some degree on humanizing the subject matter.” – Bruce Lipton

“In reality, a cell is a biological mini-me compared to the human body. A cell has every biological system that you have.” – Bruce Lipton

“I knew I was going to be a cellular biologist whose research would focus on scrutinizing every nuance of the cell’s ultrastructure to gain insights into the secrets of cellular life.” – Bruce Lipton

“You may consider yourself an individual, but as a cell biologist, I can tell you that you are in truth a cooperative community of approximately fifty trillion single-celled citizens.” – Bruce Lipton

“If humans were to model the lifestyle displayed by healthy community of cells , our societies and our planet would be more peaceful and vital.” – Bruce Lipton

“Humans are more dependent on learning for survival than other species,We have no instincts that automatically find us food and shelter !” – Bruce Lipton

“If you have pendulum clocks on the wall and start them all at different times, after a while the pendulums will all swing in synchronicity. The same thing happens with heart cells in a Petri dish: They start beating in rhythm even when they’re not touching one another.” – Bruce Lipton

“So one way of looking at our trillion-celled bodies is that they are protein machines, although, as you know, I think we are more than machines! It sounds simple, but it isn’t. For one thing, it takes over 100,000 different types of proteins to run our bodies.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on Health

“Already there is a study that shows that when humans digest genetically modified foods, the artificially created genes transfer into and alter the character of the beneficial bacteria in the intestine” – Bruce Lipton

“Nevertheless, the drugging of America continues — one Mayo Clinic study concluded that nearly seven out of ten Americans are taking prescription drugs, and a whopping 20 percent take five or more! (Zhong, et al, 2013) This includes millions of courses of antibiotics that have spawned life-threatening, drug-resistant microbes.” – Bruce Lipton

“Most illness is just stress from not living in harmony.” – Bruce Lipton

“Drugging out symptoms does not solve the problem, it helps us ignore it – until the vehicle breaks down.” – Bruce Lipton

“As a nation we should look more carefully at how our fear of future acts of terrorism is undermining our quality of life.” – Bruce Lipton

“I watch Jon Stewart because I need to laugh. Otherwise, life gets too serious. Besides that, I don’t watch any news.” – Bruce Lipton

“We are made in the image of God, and we need to put Spirit back into the equation when we want to improve our physical and our mental health.” – Bruce Lipton

“”Achor’s studies emphasize that we have been culturally programmed to believe that if we reach our goals (when we get into Harvard, lose twenty pounds, get a high-paying job, etc.), then we’ll be happy. However, this formula for happiness is actually inverted: happiness fuels success, not the other way around.” – Bruce Lipton

“Through self-consciousness, the mind can use the brain to generate “molecules of emotion” and override the system. While proper use of consciousness can bring health to an ailing body, inappropriate unconscious control of emotions can easily make a healthy body diseased,” – Bruce Lipton

“Human beings are not meant to live alone. There is a fundamental biological imperative that propels you and every organism on this planet to be in a community, to be in relationship with other organisms.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on the Mind

“”Through consciousness, our minds have the power to change our planet and ourselves. It is time we heed the wisdom of the ancient indigenous people and channel our consciousness and spirit to tend the garden and not destroy it.” – Bruce Lipton

“The overuse of prescription drugs provides a vacation from personal responsibility.” – Bruce Lipton

“The future is to heal back to the mind again. Recognizing that the mind is all powerful – it controls every cell to every degree of its genetic expression.” – Bruce Lipton

“The first six years of a child’s life, it is like a tape recorder is on. Everything it sees, smells, touches, experiences in any way, whatever it hears, is being downloaded into the brain before the consciousness of the child is even made apparent.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on Beliefs

“The separation between us and them or between us and Nature that we so vividly experience in our reality is an illusion held in place by our beliefs.” – Bruce Lipton

“Human beings have a great capacity for sticking to false beliefs with great passion and tenacity.” – Bruce Lipton

“PSYCH-K can change long-standing, limiting beliefs in a matter of minutes.” – Bruce Lipton

“There was a point where there was a vision that we’ll get to a certain age, and then we’ll retire and be happy. Now that’s like, that’s being compromised every day. So I think we have to start living happy now and stop waiting for the forty years because by then you’ll be so sick, you wouldn’t enjoy it anyway.” – Bruce Lipton

“The implication is that this basic idea we have that we are controlled by our genes is false. It’s an idea that turns us into victims. I’m saying we are the creators of our situation. The genes are merely the blueprints. We are the contractors, and we can adjust those blueprints. And we can even rewrite them.” – Bruce Lipton

“When we truly recognize that our beliefs are that powerful – we hold the key to freedom.” – Bruce Lipton

“If the brain expects that a treatment will work, it sends healing chemicals into the bloodstream, which facilitates that. That’s why the placebo effect is so powerful for every type of healing. And the opposite is equally true and equally powerful: When the brain expects that a therapy will not work, it doesn’t. It’s called the “nocebo” effect.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on Genes and Epigenetics

“Epigenetics doesn’t change the genetic code, it changes how that’s read. Perfectly normal genes can result in cancer or death. Vice-versa, in the right environment, mutant genes won’t be expressed. Genes are equivalent to blueprints; epigenetics is the contractor. They change the assembly, the structure.” – Bruce Lipton

“Suddenly I realized that a cell’s life is controlled by the physical and energetic environment and not by its genes. Genes are simply molecular blueprints used in the construction of cells, tissues, and organs. The environment serves as a “contractor” who reads and engages those genetic blueprints and is ultimately responsible for the character of a cell’s life. It is a single cell’s “awareness” of the environment, not its genes, that sets into motion the mechanisms of life.” – Bruce Lipton

“A person’s health isn’t generally a reflection of genes, but how their environment is influencing them. Genes are the direct cause of less than 1pc of diseases: 99pc is how we respond to the world.” – Bruce Lipton

“I am the master of my genes, not the victim of them.” – Bruce Lipton

“We are not victims of our genes, but masters of our fates, able to create lives overflowing with peace, happiness, and love.” – Bruce Lipton

“Genes are not destiny!” – Bruce Lipton

“Recently, results of the Human Genome Project have shattered one of Science’s fundamental core beliefs, the concept of genetic determinism. We have been led to believe that our genes determine the character of our lives, yet new research surprisingly reveals that it is the character of our lives that controls our genes. Rather than being victims of our heredity, we are actually masters of our genome.” – Bruce Lipton

“Correlation and causation. It’s one thing to be linked to a disease; it’s quite another to cause a disease, which implies a directing, controlling action. If I show you my keys and say that a particular key “controls” my car, you at first might think that makes sense because you know you need that key to turn on the ignition. But does the key actually “control” the car? If it did, you couldn’t leave the key in the car alone because it might just borrow your car for a joy ride when you are not paying attention. In truth, the key is “correlated” with the control of the car; the person who turns the key actually controls the car. Specific genes are correlated with an organism’s behavior and characteristics. But these genes are not activated until something triggers them.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on our Environment

“One of the first papers I wrote at the University of Wisconsin, in 1977, was on stem cells. I realized that if I changed the environment that these cells were in, I could turn the cells into bone, and if I changed the environment a bit more, they would form fat cells.” – Bruce Lipton

“If your environment keeps draining your energy, it’s like having a leaky bank account, where any money you’re putting into the bank, such as by seeing an energy healer, keeps slipping out. You have to change your environment, including any harmful beliefs, before the energy can stay high.” – Bruce Lipton

“Because we’re not in harmony with the environment, we’re destroying the environment that supports us.” – Bruce Lipton

“Your children’s genes reflect only their potential, not their destiny. It is up to you to provide the environment that allows them to develop to their highest potential.” – Bruce Lipton

“Just like a single cell, the character of our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals that propel life.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on Thought

“Our thoughts are mainly controlled by our subconscious, which is largely formed before the age of 6, and you cannot change the subconscious mind by just thinking about it.” – Bruce Lipton

“Each of our cells is a living entity, and the main thing that influences them is our blood. If I open my eyes in the morning and my beautiful partner is in front of me, my perception causes a release of oxytocin, dopamine, growth hormones – all of which encourage the growth and health of my cells. But if I see a saber tooth tiger, I’m going to release stress hormones which change the cells to a protection mode. People need to realize that their thoughts are more primary than their genes, because the environment, which is influenced by our thoughts, controls the genes.” – Bruce Lipton

“Positive thoughts are a biological mandate for a happy, healthy life. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi: Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.” – Bruce Lipton

“Biological behavior can be controlled by invisible forces, including thought, as well as it can be controlled by physical molecules like penicillin, a fact that provides the scientific underpinning for pharmaceutical-free energy medicine.” – Bruce Lipton

“Your brain sends out vibrations all the time, and your thoughts affect your life and other people’s. They pick up these thoughts and get changed by them. That’s why, say, a pacifist gets caught up in a riot situation. It’s a field of vibrations – you can ‘feel’ someone else’s thoughts when close to them.” – Bruce Lipton

“Beliefs and thoughts alter cells in your body.” – Bruce Lipton

“If we could get your subconscious mind to agree with your conscious mind about being happy, that’s when your positive thoughts work.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on Change

“Here is the amazing thing: the caterpillar and the butterfly have the exact same DNA. They are the same organism but are receiving and responding to a different organizing signal.” – Bruce Lipton

“So here is the bad news and the good news. The story of human life on Earth is yet to be determined. If there is to be an Act V, it will depend on whether we humans are willing to make changes in our individual and collective beliefs and behaviors and whether we are able to make these changes in time.” – Bruce Lipton

“No one is fixed until they make the effort to change.” – Bruce Lipton

“You know why it’s hard to be happy – it’s because we refuse to LET GO of the things that make us sad.” – Bruce Lipton

“Nature is based on harmony. So it says if we want to survive and become more like nature, then we actually have to understand that it’s cooperation versus competition.” – Bruce Lipton

“We keep thinking that the human is evolving. No, the human has evolved to its extent. What’s happening now is the organization of humans: just like cells organize to form people, people are organizing to form humanity.” – Bruce Lipton

“A miraculous healing awaits this planet once we accept our new responsibility to collectively tend the Garden, rather than fight over the turf.” – Bruce Lipton

“I learned again and again in my life, until you get your own act together, you’re not ready for Big Love. What you’re ready for is one of those codependent relationships where you desperately need a partner.” – Bruce Lipton

“For science, the end of the evolution struggle is simply represented by ‘survival.’ As for the means to that end, apparently anything goes. Darwinism leaves humanity without a moral compass.” – Bruce Lipton

“We are conscious co-creators in the evolution of life. We have free will. And we have choices. Consequently, our success is based on our choices, which are, in turn, totally dependent on our awareness.” – Bruce Lipton

Bruce Lipton Quotes on Perception

“Your perspective is always limited by how much you know. Expand your knowledge and you will transform your mind.” – Bruce Lipton

“The moment you change your perception is the moment you rewrite the chemistry of your body.” – Bruce Lipton

“Life has everything in it. But you only see what your perception allow you to see.” – Bruce Lipton

“Signal transduction science recognizes that the fate and behavior of an organism is directly linked to its perception of the environment.” – Bruce Lipton

“We can control our lives by controling our perceptions.” – Bruce Lipton

“As soon as you start to tell yourself in your perception that you can’t do something anymore, then your biological system will adjust to prove you right. You will not do what you think you can’t do.” – Bruce Lipton

“It is far easier to be entertained by a reality TV than to participate in our own reality.” – Bruce Lipton

“Cells, tissues, and organs do not question information sent by the nervous system. Rather, they respond with equal fervor to accurate life-affirming perceptions and to self-destructive misperceptions. Consequently, the nature of our perceptions greatly influences the fate of our lives.” – Bruce Lipton

“The ‘secret of life’ is BELIEF. Rather than genes, it is our beliefs that control our lives.” – Bruce Lipton

“Our beliefs control our bodies, our minds, and thus our lives…” – Bruce Lipton

“Every person perceives the world differently. So essentially, there are six billion human versions of reality on this planet, each perceiving its own truth.” – Bruce Lipton

“The character of our life is based upon how we perceive it.” – Bruce Lipton
