Cathy and Larry


 
Lo! in that hour of misery
A lady with a lamp I see
Pass through the glimmering gloom,
And flit from room to room.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Santa Filomena, 1857


lamp used in the Crimean War
Rather, ten times, die in the surf, heralding the way to a new world, than stand idly on the shore.      
Florence Nightingale

The Nightingale Pledge

I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully.  I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug.  I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling.  With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician, in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.
Harper Hospital, Detroit, Michigan, 1893

All wish to possess knowledge, but few, comparatively speaking, are willing to pay the price.      
Juvenal



And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly, to love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?
