Physician Quotations

Much of your pain is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Khalil Gibran

The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.
William Osler

A physician is not angry at the intemperance of a mad patient, nor does he take it ill to be railed at by a man in fever. Just so should a wise man treat all mankind, as a physician does his patient, and look upon them only as sick and extravagant.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.
William Osler

Prescription: A physician's guess at what will best prolong the situation with least harm to the patient.
Ambrose Bierce
