Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away.
How can anybody hate nurses? Nobody hates nurses. The only time you hate a nurse is when they're giving you an enema.
In Turkey, you're not allowed to be left alone in the hospital. The nurse teaches the family how to do things, and somebody is always there with the patient.
One of my favorite little sayings is, 'To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.'
Robert M. Gates
I could see myself in a white nurse's uniform, working unnoticed for many years and at last dying, unknown, unmarried and unsung.
