Surgeons must be very careful
When they take the knife!
Underneath their fine incisions
Stirs the Culprit — Life!
Medicine is the restoration of discordant elements; sickness is the discord of the elements infused into the living body.
Medicine is my lawful wife and literature is my mistress. When I get tired of one I spend the night with the other.[Медицина — моя законная жена, а литература — любовница. Когда надоедает одна, я ночую у другой.]
