Doctor

Famous quotes containing the word doctor:

    A doctor, like anyone else who has to deal with human beings, each of them unique, cannot be a scientist; he is either, like the surgeon, a craftsman, or, like the physician and the psychologist, an artist.... This means that in order to be a good doctor a man must also have a good character, that is to say, whatever weaknesses and foibles he may have, he must love his fellow human beings in the concrete and desire their good before his own.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    One teacher should not talk about another, nor should a doctor discuss a colleague.
    Chinese proverb.

    I suppose one has a greater sense of intellectual degradation after an interview with a doctor than from any human experience.
    Alice James (1848–1892)
