Thought of the Day

οἱ γοῦν ἰατροί...τέμνοντες καίοντες πάντη βασανίζοντες κακῶς τοὺς ἀρρωστοῦντας ἐπαιτιῶνται μηδέν' ἄξιον μισθὸν λαμβάνειν παρὰ τῶν ἀρρωστούντων, ταῦτα ἐργαζόμενοι τὰ ἀγαθὰ καὶ †τὰς νόσους.†

Heraclitus of Ephesus

The physicians...cutting, cauterizing, and in every way torturing the sick, complain that the patients do not pay them fitting reward for thus effecting these good things-- †and sufferings†.
