Doctor

Famous quotes containing the word doctor:

    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)

    When Catholicism goes bad it becomes the world-old, world-wide religio of amulets and holy places and priestcraft. Protestantism, in its corresponding decay, becomes a vague mist of ethical platitudes. Catholicism is accused of being too much like all the other religions; Protestantism of being insufficiently like a religion at all. Hence Plato, with his transcendent Forms, is the doctor of Protestants; Aristotle, with his immanent Forms, the doctor of Catholics.
    —C.S. (Clive Staples)

    It’s like the doctor was just telling me, “Delirium is a disease of the night.” Good night.
    Billy Wilder (b. 1906)
