11 Doctors and Medicine Quotes from Literature

Doctors is all swabs. ~ Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson Over and over again in my past experience among my perishing fellow-creatures, the members of the notoriously infidel profession of Medicine had stepped between me and my mission of mercy—on the miserable pretence that the patient wanted quiet, and that the disturbing influence of all others which they most dreaded, was the influence of Miss Clack and her Books. ~ The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins For, according to our old saying, the three learned professions live by roguery on the three parts of a man. The doctor mauls our bodies; the parson starves our souls, but the lawyer must be the adroitest knave, for he has to ensnare our minds. ~ Lorna Doone by R. D. Blackmore "When a doctor does go wrong he is the first of criminals. He has nerve and he has knowledge." ~ The Adventure of the Speckled Band by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle To say the truth, every physician almost hath his favourite disease, to which he ascribes all the victories obtained over human nature. ~ Tom Jones by Henry Fielding "I'm bad," he said, pouting--"been bad all the week; don't sleep at night. The doctor can't tell why. He's a clever fellow, or I shouldn't have him, but I get nothing out of him but bills." ~ The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy It is a most extraordinary thing, but I never read a patent medicine advertisement without being impelled to the conclusion that I am suffering from the particular disease therein dealt with in its most virulent form. ~ Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome "Dr. Munro, sir," said he, "I am a walking museum. You could fit what ISN'T the matter with me on to the back of a ---- visiting card. If there's any complaint you want to make a special study of, just you come to me, sir, and see what I can do for you. It's not every one that can say that he has had cholera three times, and cured himself by living on red pepper and brandy." ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "There are one or two elementary rules to be observed in the way of handling patients," he remarked, seating himself on the table and swinging his legs. "The most obvious is that you must never let them see that you want them. It should be pure condescension on your part seeing them at all; and the more difficulties you throw in the way of it, the more they think of it. Break your patients in early, and keep them well to heel." ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Any mummery will cure if the patient's faith is strong in it. ~ A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain
