Item description for The Quotable Osler by Mark Silverman, M.D. T. Jock Murray & Charles S. Bryan...
He has been the subject of many articles and books, and Oslerian Societies around the world meet regularly to discuss his legacy. Sir William Osler's eloquent essays and speeches, laced with principles and precepts written in an aphoristic style, have influenced generations of physicians. This newly revised and updated paperback edition features the addition of fifty new quotes, forty of which have never before been published, as well as a chronology of Osler s life! The Quotable Osler is the ideal resource for those seeking an apt quote for an article, presentation, or for those wanting to sample Osler s thought-provoking and uplifting messages. Osler s meaningful and valuable teachings are timeless, and this new paperback edition would make a fine gift for a fellow physician, medical student, or a graduating resident.

A must for "Osler Lovers" Apr 4, 2003
I know three of the medical doctors (All members of the Osler Society) who assembled these choice selections uttered and (mostly) penned by Sir William Osler . . who seems to have felt strongly on only one controversial subject = that men seldom did any worthwhile creative work after age 40 and would do well to be "chloroformed" at age 60. Sir William died at age 70. The term "Internal Medicine" was coined in German-speaking Europe during Sir William's post-graduate training years there and he established the definition of the "specialty" at Johns Hopkins. The "specialty" has now out-lived its usefulness but our reverence for the man who contributed more than any other to the art and science of patient care obviously is being passed along to many young men and women who choose to be REAL PHYSICIANS.
