The quotations are organized alphabetically by subject and numbered consecutively throughout the book. The author, date, and source of each quotation are included. An "Author-Citation Index" contains the bibliographic citations. A subject index makes it easy for readers to locate material. Among the gems that users will find here are Michel de Montaigne's remark that "Sometimes it is the body that surrenders to age, sometimes, too it is the mind; and I have seen enough whose brains were enfeebled before their stomach and legs." And Henry George Miller's "The most valuable diagnostic instrument is the passage of time."
Medicine in Quotations provides quotations on medical and scientific subjects that do not appear in general quotation books such as Bartlett's Familiar Quotations (Little Brown, 2002).It will be a useful addition to academic library collections supporting health-sciences and history-of-medicine programs. Large public libraries with extensive quotation collections will want to consider it also. Barbara Bibel
