“Even the most comic moment contains an element of melancholy; even the deepest tragedy harbors a trace of the ironic.”
Christine Montross, Body of Work: Meditations on Mortality from the Human Anatomy Lab

“Standing on the edge with my patients — abiding with them — means that I must harbor a true awareness that I, too, could lose my child through the play of circumstance over which I have no control. I could lose my home, my financial security, my safety. I could lose my mind. Any of us could.”
Christine Montross, Falling Into the Fire: A Psychiatrist's Encounters with the Mind in Crisis

“The midpoint in medicine between excessive emotional involvement with patients and a complete lack of empathy is not a simple one to locate.”
Christine Montross, Body of Work: Meditations on Mortality from the Human Anatomy Lab
