SIR BENJAMIN COLLINS BRODIE
English surgeon
(1783 - 1862)

Humility leads to the highest distinction, because it leads to self-improvement.
      - [Humility]

Nothing in this world is so good as usefulness. It binds your fellow-creatures to you, and you to them; it tends to the improvement of your own character; and it gives you a real importance in society, much beyond what any artificial station can bestow.
      - [Usefulness]

The failure of his mind in old age is often less the result of natural decay than of disuse. Ambition has ceased to operate; contentment brings indolence; indolence, decay of mental power, ennui, and sometimes death. Men have been known to die, literally speaking, of disease induced by intellectual vacancy.
      - [Mind]
