What is important is to keep learning, to enjoy challenge, and to tolerate ambiguity. In the end there are no certain answers.
I feel naive for not knowing that there’s such a thing called the Physician’s Oath, which was created by the World Medical Association as part of the Declaration of Geneva. The following is a quote, followed by the oath, courtesy of Grey’s:
The biggest influences in your life are sitting around you, right now.
It changes you, this work. Your patients, your colleagues, you change each other. You don’t ever think you’ll lose your way, but what happens in this hospital…just remember why you came here. You said it the day you graduated from med school. You took the physician’s oath. Remember it. Tape it to your locker, to your bathroom mirror. Cause it is too easy to lose your way.
“I solemnly pledge to consecrate my life to the service of humanity. I will give to my teachers the respect and gratitude that is their due. I will practice my profession with conscience and dignity. The health of my patients will be my number one consideration. I will respect the secrets that are confided in me, even after my patient has died. I will maintain by all the means in my power, the honor and the noble traditions of the medical profession. My colleagues will be my Sisters and Brothers. I will not permit considerations of age, disease, or disability, creed, ethnic origin, gender, race, political affiliation, nationality, sexual orientation, social standing, or any other factor, to intervene between my duty and my patient. I will maintain the utmost respect for human life. I will not use my medical knowledge to violate human rights and civil liberties, even under threat. I make these promises solemnly, freely and upon my honor.”
Ok, I know Valentine’s Day is over, but this is so cute, I couldn’t resist:
Love isn’t a decision. It’s a feeling. If we could decide who we loved, it would be much simpler. But much less magical.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone
Ahhhh, LOVE this song. The beginning’s kind of weird, but start at :30.
A deluge of pictures for Valentine’s Day. I collected a lot of these over time but never really had any reason to post them. But now I do! Here we go:
