Doctor

Famous quotes containing the word doctor:

    The best doctors in the world are Doctor Diet, Doctor Quiet, and Doctor Merryman.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    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)

    The doctor punched my vein
    The captain called me Cain
    Upon my belly sat the sow of fear
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)
