UPDATE: Medical Quote Of The Day To Be Retired

 
I'm running out of interesting medical quotations.  Give me a bit to think of something new in the aphorism/maxim line.  Any suggestions welcome.

For now, I'll leave you with this piece of advice.
"You want to have a mid-life crisis? Fine. Ditch the firm, head off to Maui, shack up with a supermodel, but you don’t get to keep the Porsche."
--John Crichton (character in Farscape)
