“Her extremely posh eight year-old asks her a question about the economy (!), and before she answers it, she asks her extremely posh five year-old "Do you know what the economy is, darling?"

"Yes mummy, it's the part of the plane that's terrible".

This is how revolutions start.”
Adam Kay, This Is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor

“So I told them the truth: the hours are terrible, the pay is terrible, the conditions are terrible; you’re underappreciated, unsupported, disrespected and frequently physically endangered. But there’s no better job in the world.”
Adam Kay, This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor

“a great doctor must have a huge heart and a distended aorta through which pumps a vast lake of compassion and human kindness.”
Adam Kay, This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor
