A doctor, like anyone else who has to deal with human beings, each of them unique, cannot be a scientist; he is either, like the surgeon, a craftsman, or, like the physician and the psychologist, an artist. This means that in order to be a good doctor a man must also have a good character, that is to say, whatever weaknesses and foibles he may have, he must love his fellow human beings in the concrete and desire their good before his own. - (Auden, W. H. - Doctors)

Oh, replied his patient, with no malice aforethought, he told me to come and see you. - (Unknown, Source - Doctors)
