Sir William Osler, was a Canadian physician and one of the four founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler created the first residency program for specialty training of physicians, and he was the first to bring medical students out of the lecture hall for bedside clinical training.
He has frequently been described as the “Father of Modern Medicine” and one of the “greatest diagnosticians ever to wield a stethoscope.”(source -Wikipedia)
1. The best preparation for tomorrow is to do today’s work superbly well.
2. To have striven, to have made the effort, to have been true to certain ideals – this alone is worth the struggle.
3. We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from life.
4. The value of experience is not in seeing much, but in seeing wisely.
5. Observe, record, tabulate, communicate. Use your five senses. Learn to see, learn to hear, learn to feel, learn to smell, and know that by practice alone you can become expert.
6. It is much simpler to buy books than to read them and easier to read them than to absorb their contents.
7. The very first step towards success in any occupation is to become interested in it.
8. The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.
9. Be calm and strong and patient. Meet failure and disappointment with courage. Rise superior to the trials of life, and never give in to hopelessness or despair. In danger, in adversity, cling to your principles and ideals. Equanimity.
10. Acquire the art of detachment, the virtue of method, and the quality of thoroughness, but above all the grace of humility.
