Famous quotes containing the words faustus and/or doctor:

    Ah, Faustus,
    Now hast thou but one bare hour to live,
    And then thou must be damned perpetually!
    Stand still, you ever-moving spheres of heaven,
    That time may cease and midnight never come!
    Fair Nature’s eye, rise, rise again and make
    Perpetual day; or let this hour be but
    A year, a month, a week, a natural day,
    That Faustus may repent and save his soul!
    Christopher Marlowe (1564–1593)

    The doctor learns that if he gets ahead of the superstitions of his patients he is a ruined man; and the result is that he instinctively takes care not to get ahead of them.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
