Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale

celebrated English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing
When you see the natural and almost universal craving in English sick for their 'tea,' you cannot but feel that nature knows what she is about. ... A little tea or coffee restores them. ... There is nothing yet discovered which is a substitute to the English patient for his cup of tea.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I cannot remember the time when I have not longed for death. ... for years and years I used to watch for death as no sick man ever watched for the morning.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation as any painter's or sculptor's work.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sublime in the highest style of intellectual beauty, intellect without effort, without suffering... not a feature is correct – but the whole effect is more expressive of spiritual grandeur than anything I could have imagined. It makes the impression upon one that thousands of voices do, uniting in one unanimous simultaneous feeling of enthusiasm or emotion, which is said to overcome the strongest man.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Religious men are and must be heretics now- for we must not pray, except in a "form" of words, made beforehand- or think of God but with a prearranged idea.More Florence Nightingale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
