Clearly our current form of medicine will bankrupt us and simultaneously keep the chemical industry the number one money-maker as physicians nurture a nation of drugged zombies. ~ Sherry Rogers
Physicians quotes by Sherry Rogers
Before you examine the body of a patient, be patient to learn his story. For once you learn his story, you will also come to know his body. ~ Suzy Kassem
Physicians quotes by Suzy Kassem
Analyzing everyday situations using a systematic approach similar to that utilized by physicians when investigating a medical mysteries can result in better choices. ~ Dr. Russ Hill
Physicians quotes by Dr. Russ Hill
Today, the lay midwife is a response to a growing home-birth movement. In my own community most physicians have decided to withhold prenatal care from the home-birther. This is judgmental and vindictive. These doctors have decided that home birth is not safe, and by withholding prenatal care they are doing their best to make sure it is unsafe. Often it is lay midwives who step forward to fill the void and help eliminate the unnecessary dangers of home birth. They are essential for screening out women who really should not have a home birth. For considerably less money than a physician charges, they spend many more hours with a pregnant woman before, during, and after the birth. and in most places they courageously face the opposition of the established medical community. ~ Susan McCutcheon
Physicians quotes by Susan McCutcheon
The greatest mistake in the treatment of diseases is that there are physicians for the body and physicians for the soul, although the two cannot be separated. ~ Plato
Physicians quotes by Plato
Experts in diagnostic errors provided an answer to the puzzle that had been nagging me: How was it possible for missed diagnoses to be so common and yet not perceived by doctors as a major problem? The problem is that physicians, while generally aware that mistakes happen, greatly underestimate how often they make them. In his talks to doctors on the topic, Graber often asks how many have made a diagnostic error in the past year; typically, only about 1 percent of the hands go up. 'The concept that they, personally, could err at a significant rate is inconceivable to most physicians,' he writes. In short, they think it's the other guy. This overconfidence is not necessarily their fault: doctors simply do not get the feedback needed to gain an accurate sense of their batting average. They assume their diagnoses are correct until they hear otherwise. Since there are few, if any, health care organizations that systematically measure diagnostic error rates, they typically learn of their mistakes only from the patients themselves. ~ Maya Dusenbery
Physicians quotes by Maya Dusenbery
I would like to promote the concept of a partnership of insurance companies, physicians and hospitals in deploying a basic framework for an electronic medical records system that is affordable. ~ Samuel Wilson
Physicians quotes by Samuel Wilson
Irregular contact with doctors means many men fail to receive any preventive care for potentially life-threatening conditions. In addition, when men do seek care, embarrassment can often prevent them from openly discussing health concerns with their physicians. ~ Michael Crapo
Physicians quotes by Michael Crapo
Let the young know they will never find a more interesting, more instructive book than the patient himself. ~ Giorgio Baglivi
Physicians quotes by Giorgio Baglivi
Physicians have this advantage: the sun lights their success and the earth covers their failures. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Physicians quotes by Michel De Montaigne
Omniscience about life and death is not within a physician's purview. A doctor should never write off a person a priori. ~ Jerome Groopman
Physicians quotes by Jerome Groopman
One American in seven has no coverage, and one in three younger than sixty-five will lose coverage at some point in the next two years. These are people who aren't poor or old enough to qualify for government programs but whose jobs aren't good enough to provide benefits either. ~ Atul Gawande
Physicians quotes by Atul Gawande
Idiots, the lame, the blind, the dumb, are men in whom the devils have established themselves: and all the physicians who heal these infirmities, as though they proceeded from natural causes, are ignorant blockheads. ~ Martin Luther
Physicians quotes by Martin Luther
The famous physician Dumoulin said when dying, 'I leave two great physicians behind me, simple food and pure water.' ~ Voltaire
Physicians quotes by Voltaire
Long before there were effective treatments, physicians dispensed prognoses, hope, and, above all, meaning. When something terrible happens-and serious disease is always terrible-people want to know why. In a pantheistic world, the explanation was simple-one god had caused the problem, another could cure it. In the time since people have been trying to get along with only one God, explaining disease and evil has become more difficult. Generations of theologians have wrestled with the problem of theodicy-how can a good God allow such bad things to happen to good people?

Darwinian medicine can't offer a substitute for such explanations. It can't provide a universe in which events are part of a divine plan, much less one in which individual illness reflects individual sins. It can only show us why we are the way we are, why we are vulnerable to certain diseases. A Darwinian view of medicine simultaneously makes disease less and more meaningful. Diseases do not result from random or malevolent forces, they arise ultimately from past natural selection. Paradoxically, the same capacities that make us vulnerable to disease often confer benefits. The capacity for suffering is a useful defense. Autoimmune disease is a price of our remarkable ability to attack invaders. Cancer is the price of tissues that can repair themselves. Menopause may protect the interests of our genes in existing children. Even senescence and death are not random, but compromises struck by natural s ~ Randolph M. Nesse
Physicians quotes by Randolph M. Nesse
Of several remedies, the physician should choose the least sensational. ~ Hippocrates
Physicians quotes by Hippocrates
Physicians are in general the most amiable companions and the best friends, as well as the most learned men I know. ~ Alexander Pope
Physicians quotes by Alexander Pope
Physicians think they are doing something for you by labeling what you have as a disease ~ Immanuel Kant
Physicians quotes by Immanuel Kant
Lawyers and physicians are an ill provision for any country. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Physicians quotes by Michel De Montaigne
The physician is only nature's assistant. ~ Galen
Physicians quotes by Galen
Our health care system is the finest in the world, but we still have too many uninsured Americans, too high prices for prescription drugs, and too many frivolous lawsuits driving our physicians out of state or out of business. ~ Judy Biggert
Physicians quotes by Judy Biggert
There is only one cardinal rule: One must always listen to the patient. ~ Oliver Sacks
Physicians quotes by Oliver Sacks
Physicians are like kings- They brook no contradiction. ~ John Webster
Physicians quotes by John Webster
A modern hospital is like Grand Central Station - all noise and hubbub, and is filled with smoking physicians, nurses, orderlies, patients and visitors. Soft drinks are sold on each floor and everybody guzzles these popular poisons. The stench of chemicals offends the nose, while tranquillizers substitute for quietness. ~ Herbert M. Shelton
Physicians quotes by Herbert M. Shelton
Harm reduction is often perceived as being inimical to the ultimate purpose of "curing" addiction - that is, of helping addicts transcend their habits and to heal. People regard it as "coddling" addicts, as enabling them to continue their destructive ways. It's also considered to be the opposite of abstinence, which many regard as the only legitimate goal of addiction treatment. Such a distinction is artificial. The issue in medical practice is always how best to help a patient. If a cure is possible and probable without doing greater harm, then cure is the objective. When it isn't - and in most chronic medical conditions cure is not the expected outcome - the physician's role is to help the patient with the symptoms and to reduce the harm done by the disease process.

In rheumatoid arthritis, for example, one aims to prevent joint inflammation and bone destruction and, in all events, to reduce pain. In incurable cancers we aim to prolong life, if that can be achieved without a loss of life quality, and also to control symptoms. In other words, harm reduction means making the lives of afflicted human beings more bearable, more worth living. That is also the goal of harm reduction in the context of addiction. Although hardcore drug addiction is much more than a disease, the harm reduction model is essential to its treatment. Given our lack of a systematic, evidencebased approach to addiction, in many cases it's futile to dream of a cure.

So long as s ~ Gabor Mate
Physicians quotes by Gabor Mate
Unfortunately, there is something dramatic about spider bites in general and brown recluse bites in particular that causes them to be frequently diagnosed. In discussions with physicians, they readily admit that the diagnosis of "spider bite" is a safe determination because it can neither be proven nor disproven. ~ Richard S Vetter
Physicians quotes by Richard S Vetter
A physician who is a lover of wisdom is the equal to a god. ~ Hippocrates
Physicians quotes by Hippocrates
Medical men do not know the drugs they use, nor their prices. ~ Francis Bacon
Physicians quotes by Francis Bacon
As far as physicians go, chance is more valuable than knowledge. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Physicians quotes by Michel De Montaigne
One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine. ~ William Osler
Physicians quotes by William Osler
They are the best physicians, who being great in learning most incline to the traditions of experience, or being distinguished in practice do not reflect the methods and generalities of art. ~ Francis Bacon
Physicians quotes by Francis Bacon
Time is the cruelest of physicians, healing
All wounds, but always slowly, looping
A surgical needle through the mind's flesh, experiencing
Torment again over again, repeating
Until anesthetics bring an end to feeling. ~ Justin Wetch
Physicians quotes by Justin Wetch
There is a world of science necessary in choosing books. I have known some people in great sorrow fly to a novel, or the last light book in fashion. One might as well take a rose-draught for the plague! Light reading does not do when the heart is really heavy. I am told that Goethe, when he lost his son, took to study a science that was new to him. Ah! Goethe was a physician who knew what he was about. ~ Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Physicians quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
He had had much experience of physicians, and said 'the only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd druther not'. ~ Mark Twain
Physicians quotes by Mark Twain
- I have been understood. At the opening of the Bible there is the whole psychology of the priest. - The priest knows of only one great danger: that is science - the sound comprehension of cause and effect. But science flourishes, on the whole, only under favourable conditions - a man must have time, he must have an overflowing intellect, in order to "know."... "Therefore, man must be made unhappy," - this has been, in all ages, the logic of the priest. - It is easy to see just what, by this logic, was the first thing to come into the world: - "sin."... The concept of guilt and punishment, the whole "moral order of the world," was set up against science - against the deliverance of man from priests.... Man must not look outward; he must look inward. He must not look at things shrewdly and cautiously, to learn about them; he must not look at all; he must suffer.... And he must suffer so much that he is always in need of the priest. - Away with physicians! What is needed is a Saviour. - The concept of guilt and punishment, including the doctrines of "grace," of "salvation," of "forgiveness" - lies through and through, and absolutely without psychological reality - were devised to destroy man's sense of causality: they are an attack upon the concept of cause and effect! - And not an attack with the fist, with the knife, with honesty in hate and love! On the contrary, one inspired by the most cowardly, the most crafty, the most ignoble of instincts! An attack of priests! An atta ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Physicians quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
The gross perversion and destruction of motherhood by the abortionist filled me with indignation, and awakened active antagonism. That the honorable term 'female physician' should be exclusively applied to those women who carried on this shocking trade seemed to me a horror. It was an utter degradation of what might and should become a noble position for women. ~ Elizabeth Blackwell
Physicians quotes by Elizabeth Blackwell
Physicians think they do a lot for a patient when they give his disease a name. ~ Immanuel Kant
Physicians quotes by Immanuel Kant
Such is the demographic paradox of a junior physician's relationship with his patients: I worry about how to extend their lives. This anxiety inevitably shortens my own. ~ Jacob M. Appel
Physicians quotes by Jacob M. Appel
As long as men are liable to die and are desirous to live, a physician will be made fun of, but he will be well paid. ~ Jean De La Bruyere
Physicians quotes by Jean De La Bruyere
I feel like a physician, one who's done a scan of the patient's body and seen evidence of a potentially serious issue. ~ Katharine Hayhoe
Physicians quotes by Katharine Hayhoe
Whilst my physicians by their love are grown Cosmographers, and I their map, who lie Flat on this bed. ~ John Donne
Physicians quotes by John Donne
We have not only multiplied diseases, but we have made them more fatal. ~ Benjamin Rush
Physicians quotes by Benjamin Rush
Physicians, of all men, are most happy; whatever good success soever they have, the world proclaimeth; and what faults they commit, the earth covereth. ~ Francis Quarles
Physicians quotes by Francis Quarles
Preachers say, "Do as I say, not as I do." But if a physician had the same disease upon him that I have, and he should bid me do one thing and he do quite another, could I believe him? ~ John Selden
Physicians quotes by John Selden
Montpellier produced nearly 40 percent of all physicians in France, but the university had a troubled reputation as a party school where medical students were just as likely to drink and cavort with prostitutes as they were to learn the intricacies of the Hippocratic corpus. ~ Holly Tucker
Physicians quotes by Holly Tucker
Death a friend that alone can bring the peace his treasures cannot purchase, and remove the pain his physicians cannot cure. ~ Mortimer Collins
Physicians quotes by Mortimer Collins
Before asserting a prognosis on any patient, always be objective and never subjective. For telling a man that he will win the treasure of life, but then later discovering that he will lose, will harm him more than by telling him that he may lose, but then he wins. ~ Suzy Kassem
Physicians quotes by Suzy Kassem
The physician must be able to tell the antecedents, know the present, and foretell the future - must mediate these things, and have two special objects in view with regard to disease, namely, to do good or to do no harm. ~ Hippocrates
Physicians quotes by Hippocrates
It was an odd relationship, but then she was an extraordinary woman: a prioress who doubted much of what the church taught; an acclaimed healer who rejected medicine as practised by physicians; and a nun who made enthusiastic love to her man whenever she could get away with it. If I wanted a normal relationship, Merthin told himself, I should have picked a normal girl. ~ Ken Follett
Physicians quotes by Ken Follett
In summoning even the wisest of physicians to our aid, it is probably that he is relying upon a scientific "truth", the error of which will become obvious in just a few years' time. ~ Marcel Proust
Physicians quotes by Marcel Proust
In the early 1700's, two physicians ... learned about pinkroot's efficacy from the Indians. The word soon spread to the general public, who praised this worm treatment, particularly against roundworms, for the next 200 years. Pinkroot fell into disuse in the early 1900's, simply because greedy herb dealers adulterated or even substituted shipments of true pinkroot with quantities of other plants ... ~ Michael Savage
Physicians quotes by Michael Savage
Again, truth should be highly valued; if, as we were saying, a lie is useless to the gods, and useful only as a medicine to men, then the use of such medicines should be restricted to physicians; private individuals have no business with them. ~ Plato
Physicians quotes by Plato
There are some chagrins of the heart which a friend ought to try to console without betraying a knowledge of their existence, as there are physical maladies which a physician ought to seek to heal without letting the sufferer know that he has discovered their extent. ~ Marguerite Gardiner, Countess Of Blessington
Physicians quotes by Marguerite Gardiner, Countess Of Blessington
It would be a mistake, though, to consider care by family doctors or midwives inferior to that offered by obstetricians simply on the grounds that obstetricians need not refer care to a family physician or midwife if no complications develop during a course of labor. ~ Ina May Gaskin
Physicians quotes by Ina May Gaskin
This Levantine spirit developed gradually in Beirut after the Industrial Revolution, as the burgeoning Lebanese silk trade and the invention of the steamboat combined to bring men and women of America and Western Europe in large numbers to the Levant. These settlers from the West were Catholic and Protestant missionaries, diplomats, and merchants, Jewish traders, travelers and physicians; and they brought with them Western commerce, manners, and ideas and, most of all, a certain genteel, open, tolerant attitude toward life and toward other cultures. Their mores and manners were gradually imitated by elite elements of the local native populations, who made a highly intelligent blend of these Western ideas with their own indigenous Arabic, Greek, and Turkish cultures, which had their own traditions of tolerance. "To be a Levantine," wrote Hourani, "is to live in two worlds or more at once, without belonging to either." In ~ Thomas L. Friedman
Physicians quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
Temperance and labor are the two real physicians of man. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Physicians quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Physicians today, as human beings, are not exempt from the perverse economic pressures created by fee-for-service regimes to see more patients for shorter appointments and order more tests and procedures. If the incentives were changed to pay to foster better health outcomes, I am convinced physician behavior would change over time. ~ Mitch Kapor
Physicians quotes by Mitch Kapor
The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul. Let no one persuade you to cure the head until he has first given you his soul to be cured, for this is the great error of our day, that physicians first separate the soul from the body. ~ Plato
Physicians quotes by Plato
Only those who regard healing as the ultimate goal of their efforts can, therefore, be designated as physicians. ~ Rudolf Virchow
Physicians quotes by Rudolf Virchow
Antigonus, having taken one of his soldiers into a great degree of favor and esteem for his valor, gave his physicians strict charge to cure him of a long and inward disease under which he had a great while languished, and observing that, after his cure, he went much more coldly to work than before, he asked him what had so altered and cowed him: "Yourself, sir," replied the other, "by having eased me of the pains that made me weary of my life. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Physicians quotes by Michel De Montaigne
physicians, Drs. Bill Castelli, Bill Roberts and Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., that in their long careers they had never seen a heart disease fatality among their patients who had blood cholesterol levels below 150 mg/dL. Dr. Castelli was the long-time director of the famous Framingham Heart Study of NIH; Dr. Esselstyn was a renowned surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic who did a remarkable study reversing heart disease (chapter five); Dr. Roberts has long been editor of the prestigious medical journal Cardiology. BLOOD CHOLESTEROL AND DIET ~ T. Colin Campbell
Physicians quotes by T. Colin Campbell
I am dying with the help of too many physicians. ~ Alexander The Great
Physicians quotes by Alexander The Great
A suprising number of physicians manage to continue to care about persons even after the rigors of medical training. ~ Mary Catherine Bateson
Physicians quotes by Mary Catherine Bateson
The human eye has long fascinated lovers, artists and physicians. The ancient Greeks dissected eyes, but struggled to understand how they worked, unclear as to whether they received or emanated light. ~ Tim Birkhead
Physicians quotes by Tim Birkhead
We will get growth and affordability in health care not by replicating the expertise of today's physicians in the form of new physicians. We will get it by embodying their expertise in devices and equipment, so expertise becomes widely available, more affordable, and much easier to obtain. This ~ Clayton M Christensen
Physicians quotes by Clayton M Christensen
A patient had a 50-50 chance of benefiting from visiting a physician as of 1910. Medicine was more like voodoo than science until the 20th Century. ~ Abraham Flexner
Physicians quotes by Abraham Flexner
The physician's duty is not to stave off death or return patients to their old lives, but to take into our arms a patient and family whose lives have disintegrated and work until they can stand back up and face, and make sense of, their own existence. ~ Paul Kalanithi
Physicians quotes by Paul Kalanithi
Government agencies are trying to get doctors to cut back on prescribing opioids. I understand that they need to do something about the epidemic of overdoses. However, labeling everyone as addicts, including those who responsibly take opioids for chronic pain, is not the answer. If the proposed changes take effect, they would force physicians to neglect their patients. Moreover, legitimate pain patients, like myself, would be left in agony on a daily basis. ~ Alison Moore,
Physicians quotes by Alison Moore,
There are 20,000 Muslim physicians in the United States, Americans putting their lives in the hands of Muslims every day. ~ Hamza Yusuf
Physicians quotes by Hamza Yusuf
Physicians are many in title but very few in reality. ~ Hippocrates
Physicians quotes by Hippocrates
If you do not smile, you are judged lacking in a 'pleasing personality' - and you need to have a pleasing personality if you want to sell your services, whether as a waitress, a salesman, or a physician. ~ Erich Fromm
Physicians quotes by Erich Fromm
As lower-cost phones begin to penetrate, they'll become the educator and physician everywhere on the planet. ~ Peter Diamandis
Physicians quotes by Peter Diamandis
I have the same opinion of dances that physicians have of mushrooms: the best of them are good for nothing. ~ Saint Francis De Sales
Physicians quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
This familiarity with a respected physician and my appreciation of his work, or the tragedy I experienced with the long, tormented agony and death of my mother might have influenced me in wanting to study medicine. It was not the case. ~ Albert Claude
Physicians quotes by Albert Claude
Let me put the contrast in a single concrete example. The physician who finds time to give personal attention to his patients and listens to them. carefully probing inner conditions that may be more significant than any laboratory reports, has become a rarity. Where the power complex is dominant, a visit to a physician is paced, not to fit the patient's needs, but mainly to perform the succession of physical tests upon which the diagnosis will be based. Yet if there were a sufficient number of competent physicians on hand whose inner resources were as available as their laboratory aids, a more subtle diagnosis might be possible, and the patient's subjective response might in many cases effectively supplement the treatment. Thoreau expressed this to perfection when he observed in his 'Journal' that "the really efficient laborer will be found not to crowd his day with work, but will saunter to his task surrounded by a wide halo of ease and leisure."

Without this slowing of the tempo of all activities the positive advantages of plenitude could not be sufficiently enjoyed; for the congestion of time is as threatening to the good life as the congestion of space or people, and produces stresses and tensions that equally undermine human relations. The inner stability that such a slowdown brings about is essential to the highest uses of the mind, through opening up that second life which one lives in reflection and contemplation and self-scrutiny. The means to escape from ~ Lewis Mumford
Physicians quotes by Lewis Mumford
According to an article in the Washington Post: The Food and Drug Administration has repeatedly urged antidepressant manufacturers not to disclose to physicians and the public that some clinical trials of the medications in children found that drugs were no better than sugar pills, according to documents and testimony released at a congressional hearing yesterday. Regulators supressed the negative information on the grounds that it might scare families and physicians away from the drugs, according to testimony by drug company executives. For at least three medications, they said, the FDA blocked the companies' plans to reveal the negative studies in drug labels. ~ Irving Kirsch
Physicians quotes by Irving Kirsch
But I can cite ten other reasons for not being a father."
"First of all, I don't like motherhood," said Jakub, and he broke off pensively. "Our century has already unmasked all myths. Childhood has long ceased to be an age of innocence. Freud discovered infant sexuality and told us all about Oedipus. Only Jocasta remains untouchable; no one dares tear off her veil. Motherhood is the last and greatest taboo, the one that harbors the most grievous curse. There is no stronger bond than the one that shackles mother to child. This bond cripples the child's soul forever and prepares for the mother, when her son has grown up, the most cruel of all the griefs of love. I say that motherhood is a curse, and I refuse to contribute to it."
"Another reason I don't want to add to the number of mothers," said Jakub with some embarrassment, "is that I love the female body, and I am disgusted by the thought of my beloved's breast becoming a milk-bag."
"The doctor here will certainly confirm that physicians and nurses treat women hospitalized after an aborted pregnancy more harshly than those who have given birth, and show some contempt toward them even though they themselves will, at least once in their lives, need a similar operation. But for them it's a reflex stronger than any kind of thought, because the cult of procreation is an imperative of nature. That's why it's useless to look for the slightest rational argument in natalist propaganda. Do you perhaps think it's the vo ~ Milan Kundera
Physicians quotes by Milan Kundera
The doctors of antiquity have affirmed that love is a passion that resembles a melancholy disease. The physician Rasis prescribed, therefore, in order to recover, coitus, fasting, drunkenness, and walking. ~ Marsilio Ficino
Physicians quotes by Marsilio Ficino
The growing professional disciplines of medical ethics and bioethics have had a profound impact on researchers, bedside doctors, associations of physicians, and government. ~ Sherwin B. Nuland
Physicians quotes by Sherwin B. Nuland
Let us show the world that a difference of opinion upon medical subjects is not incompatible with medical friendships; and in so doing, let us throw the whole odium of the hostility of physicians to each other upon their competition for business and money. ~ Benjamin Rush
Physicians quotes by Benjamin Rush
Even in populous districts, the practice of medicine is a lonely road which winds up-hill all the way and a man may easily go astray and never reach the Delectable Mountains unless he early finds those shepherd guides of whom Bunyan tells, Knowledge, Experience, Watchful, and Sincere. ~ William Osler
Physicians quotes by William Osler
Great physicians and nurses, skilled, caring and unparalleled in their training, intervened in my life and probably saved it. I was lucky but other Americans are not. It is time to speak again and stand again for the ideal that in the richest nation ever on this planet, it is wrong for 41 million Americans, most of them in working families, to worry at night and wake up in the morning without the basic protection of health insurance. ~ John F. Kerry
Physicians quotes by John F. Kerry
It is incident to physicians, I am afraid, beyond all other men, to mistake subsequence for consequence. ~ Samuel Johnson
Physicians quotes by Samuel Johnson
The first question an Ayurvedic physician asks is not 'What disease does my patient have?' but 'Who is my patient?' By 'who,' the physician does not mean your name, but how you are constituted. ~ Deepak Chopra
Physicians quotes by Deepak Chopra
Physicians, though they put their patients to much pain, will not destroy their nature, but will raise it up by degrees. Surgeons will pierce and cut but not mutilate. A mother who has a sick and self-willed child will not cast it away for this reason. And shall there be more mercy in the stream than there is in the spring? Shall we think there is more mercy in ourselves than in God, who plants the feeling of mercy in us? ~ Richard Sibbes
Physicians quotes by Richard Sibbes
Many a woman shudders ... at the terrible eclipse of those intellectual powers which in early life seemed prophetic of usefulness and happiness, hence the army of martyrs among our married and unmarried women who, not having cultivated a taste for science, art or literature, form a corps of nervous patients who make fortunes for agreeable physicians. ~ Sarah Moore Grimke
Physicians quotes by Sarah Moore Grimke
What is the use of physicians like myself trying to help parents to bring up children healthy and happy, to have them killed in such numbers for a cause that is ignoble? ~ Benjamin Spock
Physicians quotes by Benjamin Spock
The study of nature with a view to works is engaged in by the mechanic, the mathematician, the physician, the alchemist, and the magician; but by all as things now are with slight endeavour and scanty success. ~ Francis Bacon
Physicians quotes by Francis Bacon
Nature performs the cure, the physician takes the fee. ~ Benjamin Franklin
Physicians quotes by Benjamin Franklin
The physician cannot prescribe by letter, he must feel the pulse. ~ Seneca The Younger
Physicians quotes by Seneca The Younger
This is a sharp medicine, but it is a physician for all diseases and miseries. ~ Walter Raleigh
Physicians quotes by Walter Raleigh
It is no part of a physician's business to use either persuasion or compulsion upon the patients. ~ Aristotle.
Physicians quotes by Aristotle.
The purse of the patient often protracts his case. ~ Johann Georg Ritter Von Zimmermann
Physicians quotes by Johann Georg Ritter Von Zimmermann
About the presence of death and dying I don't remember the society in the 1950s being so skittish as it has since become. People still died at home, among relatives and friends, often in the care of a family physician. Death was still to be seen sitting in the parlor, hanging in a butcher shop, sometimes lying in the street. ~ Lewis H. Lapham
Physicians quotes by Lewis H. Lapham
Culture matters. Of course, if physicians are rewarded or penalized for their service and results, the culture will change. But the key values we doctors are being pressed to embrace are humility, teamwork, and discipline. ~ Atul Gawande
Physicians quotes by Atul Gawande
As our friend Zach has often noted, in our days those who do the best for astronomy are not the salaried university professors, but so-called dillettanti, physicians, jurists, and so forth.Lamenting the fragmentary time left to a professor has remaining after fulfilling his teaching duties. ~ Carl Friedrich Gauss
Physicians quotes by Carl Friedrich Gauss
The women's health initiative standards for HRT is nothing but an embarrassment to all physicians, and I'm not sure why they have not retracted all the statements that came out of that joke of a study. ~ Marie Hoag MBA
Physicians quotes by Marie Hoag MBA
The physicians are the natural attorneys of the poor, and the social problems should largely be solved by them. ~ Rudolf Virchow
Physicians quotes by Rudolf Virchow
The human body experiences a powerful gravitational pull in the direction of hope. That is why the patient's hopes are the physician's secret weapon. They are the hidden ingredients in any prescription. ~ Norman Cousins
Physicians quotes by Norman Cousins
Fasting is the greatest remedy
the physician within. ~ Paracelsus
Physicians quotes by Paracelsus
