Francois Magendie

Every one is fond of comparing himself to something great and grandiose, as Louis XIV likened himself to the sun, and others have had like similes. I am more humble.

To hold that the phenomena of life are entirely distinct from the general phenomena of nature is to commit a grave error, it is to oppose the continued progress of science.More Francois Magendie [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Facts, and facts alone, are the foundation of science... When one devotes oneself to experimental research it is in order to augment the sum of known facts, or to discover their mutual relations.More Francois Magendie [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the actual condition of medical science, the physician mostly plays the part of simple spectator of the sad episodes which his profession furnishes him.More Francois Magendie [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
