    Default Some quotes on the art of medicine....

    “The practice of medicine is an art, not a trade; a calling, not a business; a calling in which your heart will be exercised equally with your head. Often the best part of your work will have nothing to do with potions and powders, but with the exercise of an influence of the strong upon the weak, of the righteous upon the wicked, of the wise upon the foolish.” - William Osler

    Medicine is learned by the bedside and not in the classroom. Let not your conceptions of disease come from words heard in the lecture room or read from the book. See, and then reason and compare and control. But see first.” - WIlliam Osler

    Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity”- Hippocrates

    “He who studies medicine without books sails an uncharted sea, but he who studies medicine without patients does not go to sea at all.” - William Osler

    No man is a good physician who has never been sick. ~Arabic Proverb

    ~Author Unknown

    Faith and knowledge lean largely upon each other in the practice of medicine. ~Peter Mere Latham

    Greek: Ὁ βίος βραχύς, ἡ δὲ τέχνη μακρή, ὁ δὲ καιρὸς ὀξὺς, ἡ δὲ πεῖρα σφαλερὴ, ἡ δὲ κρίσις χαλεπή.
    Latin: Ars longa, vita brevis, occasio praeceps, experimentum periculosum, iudicium difficile. ”
    English: Life is short, art [of medicine] is long; the crisis fleeting; experience perilous, and decisions difficult. The physician must not only be prepared to do what is right himself, but also to make the patient, the attendants, and externals cooperate - Hippocrates

    As to diseases, make a habit of two things - to help, or at least, to do no harm.” - Hippocrates

    “Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort always.” - Hippocrates

    It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.”

    The best six doctors anywhere
    And no one can deny it
    Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
    Exercise and diet.
    These six will gladly you attend
    If only you are willing
    Your mind they'll ease
    Your will they'll mend
    And charge you not a shilling.

    ~ Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990

    "Medicine is the art of entertaining people, until nature takes its course"

    That sums it up.
