    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Let mortals beware of words
For with words we lie
Can speak peace
When we mean war

Let music for peace
Be the paradigm
For peace means change

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“A doctor, like anyone else who has to deal with human beings, each of them unique, cannot be a scientist; he is either, like the surgeon, a craftsman, or, like the physician and the psychologist, an artist. This means that in order to be a good doctor a man must also have a good character, that is to say, whatever weaknesses and foibles he may have, he must love his fellow human beings in the concrete and desire their good before his own.”
