Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale

celebrated English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing
The martyr sacrifices themselves entirely in vain. Or rather not in vain; for they make the selfish more selfish, the lazy more lazy, the narrow narrower.More Florence Nightingale quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A woman cannot live in the light of intellect. Society forbids it. Those conventional frivolities, which are called her 'duties', forbid it. Her 'domestic duties', high-sounding words, which, for the most part, are but bad habits (which she has not the courage to enfranchise herself from, the strength to break through), forbid it.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The very elements of what constitutes good nursing are as little understood for the well as for the sick. The same laws of health, or of nursing, for they are in reality the same, obtain among the well as among the sick.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I can stand out the war with any man.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Poetry and imagination begin life. A child will fall on its knees on the gravel walk at the sight of a pink hawthorn in full flower, when it is by itself, to praise God for it.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
