[ Also see Medicine Physicians Quackery Quacks ]

An ignorant doctor is the aide-de-camp of death.

  [Lat., Intrantis medici facies tres esse videntur

        "En Deus aut custos angelus," aeger ait.]
      - John Owen (2), Works (The Physician)

The doctor is not unfrequently death's pilot-fish.

By medicine life may be prolong'd, yet death
  Will seize the doctor too.
      - William Shakespeare

A doctor's reputation is made by the number of eminent men who die under his care.
      - George Bernard Shaw

Nothing is more dangerous than a poor doctor: not even a poor employer or a poor landlord.
      - George Bernard Shaw,
        The Doctor's Dilemma: Preface on Doctors,
        an essay, The Latest Theories

It is not much trouble to doctor sick folks, but to doctor healthy ones is troublesome.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

There are worse occupations in this world than feeling a woman's pulse.
      - Laurence Sterne

Though fancy may be the patient's complaint, necessity is often the doctor's.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
