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)

    Every doctor will allow a colleague to decimate a whole countryside sooner than violate the bond of professional etiquet by giving him away.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    The doctor should be opaque to his patients and, like a mirror, should show them nothing but what is shown to him.
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)
