Variability is the law of life, and as no two faces are the same, so no two bodies are alike, and no two individuals react alike and behave alike under the abnormal conditions which we know as disease.
The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.
Medicine is a science of uncertainty and an art of probability.
There are, in truth, no specialties in medicine, since to know fully many of the most important diseases a man must be familiar with their manifestations in many organs.
We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from life.
