A Blast from the Past? (A bit off-topic)

Are you ready for a quiz? Who said this, and when: “The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed – lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” Yes, I know it sounds like Barack Obama. However, it was actually Cicero, in 55 BC, and he was neither Republican or Democrat. I include it since if you’ve been into the clinic recently, you may remember that I have that other Cicero quote about how a physician must treat the whole patient, (not just the symptoms) on all the tables. I just liked this, and thought I would share it with you. If you like the Cicero idea, click below for more and you can read the other quote that is on the adjusting tables and forms a basis for my practice philosophy…

“A careful physician, before he attempts to administer a remedy to his patient, must investigate not only the malady of the person he wishes to cure, but also that person’s habits when in health, and their physical constitution as a whole.”

– Marcus Tullius Cicero
(106 B.C. – 43 B.C.)
Roman orator and scholar. (I think I like this guy!)
