Aphorisms & Quotations for the Surgeon (Hardcover)
This book brings together a medley of over 1500 aphorisms, quotations, and rules - by surgeons and non-surgeons - about surgery, surgeons and anything which may be relevant to the practice of surgery. It should gratify all potential tastes as the book includes ancient as well as contemporary entries, formal and colloquial, pronounced by surgical giants or anonymous - only guided by the prerequisite that the entry appeals to the surgical soul. Readers will probably use this book to decorate their lectures or manuscripts with relevant smart or entertaining entries. Most of all this book will simply be read or browsed for pleasure: the reader will enjoy many of the entries, and will discover that surgical truth is old, that what is thought a novel idea has been said before; that what is seen was seen many years ago.
