Famous quotes containing the words medicine and/or science:

    No medicine in the world can do thee good;
    In thee there is not half an hour’s life.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    May we not assure ourselves that whatever woman’s thought and study shall embrace will thereby receive a new inspiration, that she will save science from materialism, and art from a gross realism; that the “eternal womanly shall lead upward and onward”?
    Louisa Parsons Hopkins, U.S. scientist and author. As quoted in The Fair Women, ch. 16, by Jeanne Madeline Weimann (1981)
