"From inability to let well alone;
from too much zeal for the new and contempt for what is old;
from putting knowledge before wisdom, science before art, and cleverness before common sense, from treating patients as cases,
and from making the cure of the disease more grievous than the endurance of the same,
Good Lord, deliver us."

Sir Robert Grieve Hutchison
British Medical Journal, 1953; 1: 671.
