“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”  ― Ronald Reagan

Surgery is always second best. If you can do something else, it’s better. –John Kirklin

He who wishes to be a surgeon should [first] go to war. –Hippocrates

Every hospital should have a plaque in the physicians’ and student’s entrances: “There are some patients whom we cannot help; there are none whom we cannot harm.” –Arthur L. Bloomfield
