Henri Matisse
“I didn't expect to recover from my second operation but since I did, I consider that I'm living on borrowed time. Every day that dawns is a gift to me and I take it in that way. I accept it gratefully without looking beyond it. I completely forget my physical suffering and all the unpleasantness of my present condition and I think only of the joy of seeing the sun rise once more and of being able to work a little bit, even under difficult conditions.”
Henri Matisse

Patrick O'Brian
“I sew his ears on from time to time, sure.”
Patrick O'Brian, Post Captain

“Surgeons can cut out everything except cause.”
Herbert M. Shelton

“Cutting out bad habits is far more effective than cutting out organs.”
Herbert M. Shelton, Fasting for Renewal of Life

Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly
“We priests are the surgeons of souls, and it is our duty to deliver them of shameful secrets they would fain conceal, with hands careful to neither wound no pollute.”
Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly, Le plus bel amour de Don Juan précédé de Le rideau cramoisi

H.P. Lovecraft
“His chief delights were of a less public and philanthropic kind, requiring many explanations of sounds which seemed peculiar even amidst that babel of the damned. Among these sounds were frequent revolver-shots—surely not uncommon on a battlefield, but distinctly uncommon in an hospital. Dr. West’s reanimated specimens were not meant for long existence or a large audience.”
H.P. Lovecraft, Herbert West—Reanimator

Lindsey Fitzharris
“His most famous (and possibly apocryphal) mishap involved an operation during which he worked so rapidly that he took off three of his assistant's fingers and, while switching blades, slashed a spectator's coat. Both the assistant and the patient died later of gangrene, and the unfortunate bystander expired on the spot from fright. It is the only surgery in history said to have had a 300 percent fatality rate.”
Lindsey Fitzharris

Kerry Winfrey
“After tomorrow, I'll see a different face staring back at me from the mirror - at first, a swollen face, but then one with a smaller jaw and a straighter smile. This is what I've wanted for years, but standing on the edge of all this change, I feel like I want to pause time and remember exactly what if feels like to be here now - in the before.”
Kerry Winfrey, Things Jolie Needs to Do Before She Bites It

David Nott
“The boy's death turned me into a person marked by war: it was the Sarajevo equivalent of a campaign medal, although not one to wear with pride.”
David Nott, War Doctor: Surgery on the Front Line

Atul Gawande
“Tears wet my eyes. I’m a surgeon. I like solving things. But how do I solve
Atul Gawande, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End

“Common sense is like a fresh, simplistic, non-prejudiced analysis of a problem that was otherwise considered complicated.”
Alberto Peña, Monologues of a Pediatric Surgeon

“If the operation is difficult, you are not doing it properly.”
Alberto Peña, Monologues of a Pediatric Surgeon

Steven Magee
“You go in through the front door of the hospital and depending on how successful your treatment is determines whether you leave through the front door or in a box out of the back door.”
Steven Magee

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Medication, surgery, and radiation are the weapons with which conventional medicine foolishly shoots the messengers called symptoms.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Ernest Hemingway
“Deitado no fundo do vagão, com as peças a meu lado debaixo do oleado, sentia-me molhado, frio e tinha muita fome. Por fim voltei-me de barriga para baixo e repousei a cabeça nos braços. O joelho doía-me, mas tinha-se portado muito bem. Valentini [o cirurgião] fizera um belo trabalho. Eu tinha feito metade da retirada a pé, e percorra a nado uma parte do Tagliamento com o joelho dele. Era realmente o joelho dele. O outro é que era meu. Os médicos faziam.nos coisas depois das quais o corpo deixava de ser nosso.
O Adeus Às Armas, Ernest Hemingway”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Awdhesh Singh
“A good doctor should not avoid performing surgery or prescribing a bitter pill if it is in the interest of the patient. Similarly, a wise person must not avoid taking unpleasant and difficult decisions, if they are in the interest of the people and the organisation.”
Awdhesh Singh, 31 Ways to Happiness

Steven Magee
“It was clear to me that using your earned sick time for essential surgery would put a target on your back at the toxic W. M. Keck Observatory.”
Steven Magee

Steven Magee
“From the point that I returned to work from essential surgery to the point of being terminated, it was clear that the toxic W. M. Keck Observatory had declared war on me.”
Steven Magee

Karen A. Wyle
“He had brought his bone saw in its leather case. And his white linen smock, the one he used to save his clothes when he had dirty work in store, and would have Li Chang wash and bleach after. An amputation would be the dirtiest work there was. He remembered the smocks the surgeons wore, layer on layer of red, dried blood darker under fresh red splashes, with the occasional white splinter of bone.

Joshua prayed as he rode, prayed hard and desperately, prayed that the smock in his bag would be clean and white when he turned homeward.”
Karen A. Wyle, What Heals the Heart

Karen A. Wyle
“He staggered and might have toppled sideways if Clara had not been there, grabbing his arm and steadying him. He turned toward her and saw her read, and then reflect, the anguish in his face. Her grip on his arm went from support to a more frantic clutch. She said under her breath, “You can get through this.” And after a long, shaky breath: “I’ll get you through it.”

But her hand was trembling on his arm.”
Karen A. Wyle, What Heals the Heart

Karen A. Wyle
“He kept eating, with a stubborn determination like something in a dream, until he heard the door open and close again. There was still some soup in the bowl. He set it on the floor for Major, let his head fall into his hands, and sobbed like a broken-hearted child. Or like a young man, barely more than a boy, waking up with only half a leg.”
Karen A. Wyle, What Heals the Heart

Hank Bracker
“Into every life some rain must fall and December was one of those months when the downpour was beyond reason. Ursula, my wife of 61 years, had the same problem that I had about five years ago. Namely she had inflamed intestines brought on by a gallbladder operation which caused an intestinal blockage brought on in part by having had a total of 9 intestinal operations over the years. This time it necessitated having the numerous adhesions and quite some internal scar tissue removed. It also required the surgeon to remove a part of her small intestines (with me it was two feet) before being able to glue the two severed parts together again.”
Captain Hank Bracker, "Salty & Saucy Maine"

Emily Dickinson
“Surgeons must be very careful
When they take the knife!
Underneath their fine incisions
Stirs the Culprit—Life!
Emily Dickinson

Paul Kalanithi
“Before operating on a patient's brain, I realized, I must first understand his mind: his identity, his values, what makes his life worth living, & what devastation makes it reasonable to let that life end. The cost of my dedication to succeed was high, & the ineluctable failures brought me nearly unbearable guilt. Those burdens are what make medicine holy & wholly impossible.”
Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air

Paul Kalanithi
“Certain brain areas are considered near-inviolable, like the primary motor cortex, damage to which results in paralysis of affected body parts. But the most sacrosanct regions of the cortex are those that control language. Usually located on the left side, they are called Wernicke's & Broca's areas; one is for understanding language & the other for producing it. […]If both areas are damaged, the patient becomes an isolate, something central to her humanity stolen forever. After someone suffers a head trauma or stroke, the destruction of these areas restrains the surgeon's impulse to save a life: what kind of life exists without language?”
Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air

Eric Overby
“Surgical Talk

As we look at the insides of humans,
We find the inside of ourselves
And each other.
What lies beneath us?
What do we believe
About the world and our place in it?
We cut down layer upon layer
And dissect the inner life.”
Eric Overby, Legacy

Nicole    Carter
“The health of our gut is impacted by our food, lifestyle, toxins, stress, and trauma in our lives, and no drug or surgery can fix that.”
