Scan Quotations

Know then thyself, presume not God to scan; The proper study of mankind is man.
Alexander Pope

If I had been under ObamaCare, and a beaurocrat had been trying to tell me when I could get that CT scan, that would have delayed my treatment. I was able to get the treatment as fast as I could based upon my timetable, and not the government's timetable. That's what saved my life.

Gretchen Rubin

Chris Hadfield
