  2. I think about this quote often and you've nailed the proper context: our humanity. Very nicely done :)))

  3. Originally for doctors, this really applies to all of us. Well done.

    1. And the troubling thing is that with modern medicine the third biggest killer is now iatrogenic - doctor or medical induced which is more akin to the Middle Ages than the modern world. Perhaps time to change the science/medicine focus on the body as a machine or a bag of chemicals.

    2. That is so true, Roslyn. Do no harm would eliminate greed but that is a pipedream to think all mankind would conform to being humane. *sigh*

  9. One of the pillars of my personal philosophy is to, as best I can, make a positive difference in the lives of others. I view this as the flipside of "do no harm." It isn't always easy to avoid making things worse, even with the best of intentions but, one must keeping trying. Thanks for creating such an important post.
