Great quotes from Dr.William Osler :-

  1. “We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from life.”
  2. “Medicine is a science of uncertainty and an art of probability.”
  3. “He who studies medicine without books sails an uncharted sea, but he who studies medicine without patients does not go to sea at all.”
  4. “Listen to your patient – he is telling you the diagnosis.”
  5. “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.”
  6. “The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the disease and once from the medicine.”
  7. “One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.”
  8. “The value of experience is not in seeing much, but in seeing wisely.”
  9. “It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has”.
  10. “The young physician starts life with 20 drugs for each disease, and the old physician ends life with one drug for 20 diseases”.
  11. “There are, in truth, no specialties in medicine, since to know fully many of the most important diseases a man must be familiar with their manifestations in many organs”.
