Famous quotes containing the word doctor:

    It is said, proverbially, that happy is the doctor who is called in when the disease is on its way out.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    The best thing about Sassy Seats is that grandmothers cannot figure out how they work and are in constant fear of the child’s falling. This often makes them forget to comment on other aspects of the child’s development, like why he is not yet talking or is still wearing diapers. Some grandmothers will spend an entire meal peering beneath the table and saying, “Is that thing steady?” rather than, “Have you had a doctor look at that left hand?”
    Anna Quindlen (20th century)

    My doctor gave me six months to live but when I couldn’t pay the bill, he gave me six months more.
    Walter Matthau (b. 1920)
