Medicine quotes

If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of; but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also way out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmity of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind.

- Mark Twain

God help the patient.

- Mansfield, Lord

Pride, like laudanun and other poisonous medicines, is beneficial in small, though injurious in large quantities. No man who is not pleased with himself, even in a personal sense, can please others.

- Frederick Saunders

In selling as in medicine, prescription before diagnosis is malpractice.

- Alesandra, Tony

This is the age of books. And we should reverence books. Consider! except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a book--a message to us from the dead, from human souls whom we never saw, who lived perhaps thousands of miles away, and yet in those little sheets of paper speak to us, amuse us, terrify us, teach us, comfort us, open their hearts to us as brothers!
We ought to reverence books, to look at them as awful and mighty things. If they are good and true, whether they are about religion or politics, trade or medicine, they are the message of Christ, the Maker of all things, the Teacher of all truth, which He has put into the heart of some men to speak. And at the last day, be sure of it, we shall have to render an account--a strict account--of the books which we have read, and of the way in which we have obeyed what we read, just as if we had had so many prophets or angels sent to us.

- Village Sermons. 1849.

You should read books like you take medicine, by advice, and not by advertisement.

- Ruskin, John

Hope, the patent medicine for disease, disaster, sin.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon

I am dying from the treatment of too many physicians.

- Alexander The Great

Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less in human beings of whom they know nothing.

- Voltaire

I've studied now Philosophy and Jurisprudence, Medicine -- and even, alas! Theology -- from end to end with labor keen; and here, poor fool with all my lore I stand, no wiser than before.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Medicines are only fit for old people.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon

You can't treat a car like a patient. A car needs love.

- Kocher, Gerhard

To be silent the whole day long, see no newspaper, hear no radio, listen to no gossip, be thoroughly and completely lazy, thoroughly and completely indifferent to the fate of the world is the finest medicine a man can give himself.

- Henry Miller

The miserable have no other medicine but only hope.

- Shakespeare, William

Sleep is better than medicine.


Regimen is superior to medicine.

- Voltaire

As there is a use in medicine for poisons, so the world cannot move without rogues.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

From year to year, it is more obvious: the goal of medicine is not health but thefurtherextension of the health system.

- Kocher, Gerhard
