“Few things a doctor does are more important than relieving pain. . . pain is soul destroying.
No patient should have to endure intense pain unnecessarily.
The quality of mercy is essential to the practice of medicine here, of all places, it should not be strained.”

“The human body experiences a powerful gravitational pull in the direction of hope.
That is why the patient’s hopes are the physician’s secret weapon.
They are the hidden ingredients in any prescription.”
