The Return Of "Medical Quote Of The Day"...Sorta

In the past, I would post a historically famous medical quote.  But there are only a finite number available, so I quit.

I'm going to post quotations from current writings.  It won't be every day.

The goal will be to present thoughts from books and articles I'm reading that struck me as significant.  I may agree or disagree, but the point being made seems important, or witty.

The first will come later today.

Thanks for reading.
