Oxford Dictionary of Medical Quotations Paperback


The Oxford Dictionary of Medical Quotations presents a wonderfully entertaining and eclectic range of quotations covering all aspects of medicine through the ages. It couples profound statements from famous scientists with witty one-liners from the likes of Woody Allen and Spike Milligan.

Packed with hundreds of quotations, it is a book that anyone in the medical profession, or with an interest in health, will find an invaluable source of reference and considerable entertainment. A few examples: "I'm not afraid to die. I just don't want to be there when it happens." - Woody Allen "The only cure for sea-sickness is to sit on the shady side of an old brick church in the country." - English sailors' proverb "The nurse should never neglect to attend to the patient's bodily hygiene on the pretext that such measures do little good and are not urgent." - Florence Nightingale
