Doctoring quotes

by Christina on April 4, 2011

Some doctoring quotes I’ve kept with me the past few years:

“One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.” ~Dr. William Osler, MD

“It’s supposed to be a secret, but I’ll tell you anyway. We doctors do nothing. We only help and encourage the doctor within.” ~Dr. Albert Schweitzer, MD

“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

“The desire to take medicine is perhaps the greatest feature which distinguishes man from animals.” ~Sir William Osler

“What we feel and think and are is to a great extent determined by the state of our ductless glands and viscera.”  ~Aldous Huxley

“Most diseases are the result of medication which has been prescribed to relieve and take away a beneficent and warning symptom on the part of Nature.” ~ Elbert Hubbard
