Adages: maxims, axioms, and sayings

   . . . . .

” Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested;
that is, some books are to be read only in parts; others to be read but not curiously, and some
few to be read wholly and with great diligence and attention.”

Francis Bacon

   . . . . .

” I was not a good doctor, my studies had been too rapid, my hospital training too short, but there
is not the slightest doubt that I was a successful doctor. What is the secret of success? To inspire
confidence. What is confidence?…. I do not know I only that it cannot be acquired by book reading,
nor by the bedside of our patients. It is a magic gift granted by birth-right to one man and denied
to another. The doctor who possesses this gift can almost raise the dead.” 

Axel Munthe, The Story of San Michele
