A physician is not angry at the intemperance of a mad patient, nor does he take it ill to be railed at by a man in fever. Just so should a wise man treat all mankind, as a physician does his patient, and look upon them only as sick and extravagant.
I have an obligation to use what I know to try to bring real, usable medical science to every doctor and bedside and patient.
I always believed in my ability. I just had to work hard and be patient and, yeah, at times it didn’t look likely. You need a wee stroke of luck but every chance I’ve been given, I’ve taken.
I’m as patient a father as I am on the tennis court. It takes a lot for me to get really upset, but sometimes kids can get you really cross if they really keep bugging you.
We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.
Patient zero feels great and is back to work.
