Doctor

Famous quotes containing the word doctor:

    When a doctor does go wrong he is the first of criminals. He has nerve and he has knowledge.
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    The conscience of the world is so guilty that it always assumes that people who investigate heresies must be heretics; just as if a doctor who studies leprosy must be a leper. Indeed, it is only recently that science has been allowed to study anything without reproach.
    Aleister Crowley (1875–1947)

    It seems to me that your doctor [Tronchin] is more of a philosopher than a physician. As for me, I much prefer a doctor who is an optimist and who gives me remedies that will improve my health. Philosophical consolations are, after all, useless against real ailments. I know only two kinds of sickness—physical and moral: all the others are purely in the imagination.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
