Country Doc Quote for the Day
Oliver Wendell Holmes on a great U.S. President- “He has a second rate mind but a first rate temperament.”
Somehow as a busy country doc in the middle of a flu epidemic, I take comfort in that. If that man can get us through the Great Depression and a World War, surely I can treat my sick people with compassion today, even if I am tired. (I’m afraid the quote also describes this country doc. I wish I were brilliant but it ain’t true.)
See ya in the morning.
