"Medicine in Quotations: Views of Health and Disease Through the Ages is much more than a random collection of famous sayings relating to sickness and health, disease and treatment.

Quotations are organized by topic, and each is fully referenced, allowing curious readers to return to the original source. Subject and author indices make it easy to find quotations of interest." "Medicine in Quotations is an invaluable resource for writers, speakers, and all those interested in the history of medicine."--BOOK JACKET.
