Famous quotes containing the words waste and/or medical:

    Whilst all the land was ringed with bristling arms
    And flames laid waste our world,
    All that was left me was a little garden
    And thou within it, my beloved, my comrade.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    As we speak of poetical beauty, so ought we to speak of mathematical beauty and medical beauty. But we do not do so; and that reason is that we know well what is the object of mathematics, and that it consists in proofs, and what is the object of medicine, and that it consists in healing. But we do not know in what grace consists, which is the object of poetry.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
