Any collection of quotations reflects the interests and diligence of
the compiler. None can be all-inclusive, no matter how exhaustive the search.
The joy of finding old favorites and new discoveries draws one back, when
preparing a talk or whiling away some idle time in the company of epigrammists.
The relatively short Oxford Dictionary of Medical
Quotations does not pretend to be exhaustive. The editor offers short
quotations that appeal to him, his tastes, his prejudices, his view of history,
and the presumed usefulness of the quotations to the contemporary speaker
in the health sciences.
