Arzt, hilf dir selber!
pt] Doutor, cure a si próprio!.
pt] O sujo fala do encardido.
pt] O roto fala do rasgado.
Ärzte klopfen an keine Tür, sie kommen nur, wenn man sie einlädt.
Ärzte kommen auf den Geldsack, Juristen auf den Wollsack.
Ärzte lernen den Schnitt an fremdem Tuche.
Ärzte müssen sich inmitten
Ihrer Kunst behutsam geben!
Unter ihren feinen Schnitten
Zuckt der arme Häftling: Leben.
Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (1830-1886), Gedichte
Ärzte und Advokaten wollen geschmiert werden.
Ärzte und Lehrer kann man nie zu gut bezahlen.
Ärzte von Valencia, lange Röck' und wenig Wissen.
Ärzte werden gehasst aus Überzeugung oder aus Ökonomie.
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach (1830-1916), Aphorismen
Ärztlich betrachtet ist der Antisemitismus eine zyklische Psychose, an der manisch depressive Völker von Zeit zu Zeit leiden.
Franz Werfel (1890-1945), Der Arzt von Wien
As the old cock crows, so crows the young.
as (Tages)licht scheuen.
As a cat loves mustard.
As a child walking over a slippery and dangerous path cries out, 'Father, I am falling!' and has but a moment to catch his father's hand, so every believer sees hours when only the hand of Jesus comes between him and the abysses of destruction.
T. L. Cuyler
As a Christian should do no injuries to others, so he should forgive the injuries that others do to him. It is to be like God, who is a good-giving God, and a sin-forgiving God.
As a conquered rebellion strengthens a government, or as health is more perfectly established by recovery from some diseases; so anger, when removed, often gives new life to affection.
As a countenance is made beautiful by the soul's shining through it, so the world is beautiful by the shining through it of a God.
As a crow or raven; as the devil, as jet, as ink, as soot.
As a dead man cannot inherit an estate, no more can a dead soul inherit heaven. The soul must be resurrected in Christ.
D. L. Moody
As a flash of lightning in a midnight tempest reveals the abysmal horrors of the sea, so did the flash of the first sun disclose the awful abyss into which rebellion was ready to plunge us. In a moment the fire was lighted in twenty million hearts. In a moment we were the most warlike nation on the earth. In a moment we were not merely a people with an army - we were a people in arms. The nation was in column - not all at the front, but all in the array. I love to believe that no heroic sacrifice is ever lost; that the characters of men are molded and inspired by what their fathers have done; that treasured up in American souls are all the unconscious influences of the great deeds of the Anglo-Saxon race, from Agincourt to Bunker Hill. It was such an influence that led a young Greek, two thousand years ago, when musing on the battle of Marathon, to exclaim, 'The trophies of Miltiades will not let me sleep!' Could these men be silent in 1861; these, whose ancestors had felt the inspiration of battle on every field where civilization had fought in the last thousand years? Read their answer in this green turf. Each for himself gathered up the cherished purposes of life - its aims and ambitions, its dearest affections - and flung all, with life itself, into the scale of battle.
James A. Garfield
As a fresh wound shrinks from the hand of the surgeon, then gradually submits to and even calls for it; so a mind under the first impression of a misfortune shuns and rejects all comfort, but at length, if touched with tenderness, calmly and willingly resigns itself.
Pliny the Younger
As a general rule, people who flagrantly pretend to anything are the reverse of that which they pretend to. A man who sets up for a saint is sure to be a sinner; and a man who boasts that he is a sinner is sure to have some feeble, maudlin, snivelling bit of saintship about him which is enough to make him a humbug.
As a general rule, those who are dissatisfied with themselves will seek to go out of themselves into an ideal world. Persons in strong health and spirits, who take plenty of air and exercise, who are 'in favor with their stars,' and have a thorough relish of the good things of this life, seldom devote themselves in despair to religion or the muses. Sedentary, nervous, hypochondriacal people, on the contrary, are forced, for want of an appetite for the real and substantial, to look out for a more airy food and speculative comforts.
As a general thing we obtain very surely and very speedily what we are not too anxious to obtain.
As a general thing, an individual who is neat in his person is neat in his morals.
H. W. Shaw
As a great part of the uneasiness of matrimony arises from mere trifles, it would be wise in every young married man to enter into an agreement with his wife, that in all disputes of this kind the party who was most convinced they were right should always surrender the victory. By which means both would be more forward to give up the cause.
As a great soldier leading our armies to victory, he first attracts the eyes of the world. His courage, though lofty and steadfast, was not of that fiery, chivalric kind which dazzles the public. He was not borne up in action by the enthusiasm and pride of the warrior; but apparently unconscious of danger, made battle a business which was to be performed with a clear head and steady nerves. His coolness in deadly peril was wonderful. What was once said of Marshal Ney applies forcibly to him: 'In battle he could literally shut up his mind to the one object he had in view.' The overthrow of the enemy absorbed every thought within him, and he had none to give to danger or death.
J. T. Headley
As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.
Bible, Proverbs (ch. XI, v. 22)
As a light,
And pliant harebell swinging in the breeze
On some grey rock - its birth-place - so had I
Wanton'd, fast-rooted in the ancient tower
Of my beloved country, wishing not
A happier fortune, than to wither there.
As a looking-glass, if it is a true one, faithfully represents the face of him that looks in it, so a wife ought to fashion herself to the affection of her husband; not to be cheerful when he is sad, nor sad when he is cheerful.
As a man exhibits himself in physical forms and actions, so there is one other Spirit, a great, wide, mighty, infinite, eternal Spirit back there in the depths of space, and in the present, and in the future, and in the abysses of space, who at His will wrestles into existence great globes, and keeps them in their position. He builds them, and places on them these mysterious forms of earth which are signals hung out over these abysses to tell coming spirits who He is, what He is, what He does, how high is His throne, and how vast is His power from eternity to eternity, from infinity to infinity through all ages of all time; He is holding forth to men and angels these external tokens of His almighty power, of His infinite skill, and of His everlasting love.
Bishop R. S. Foster
As a man is friended,
so the law is ended.
As a man is, so is his God; therefore God was so often an object of mockery.
As a man lives so shall he die.
As a man lives, so shall he die.
As a man lives, so shall he die; as a tree falls, so shall it lie.
As a man lives, so shall he die;
as a tree falls, so shall it lie.
As a man of pleasure, by a vain attempt to be more happy than any man can be, is often more miserable than most men are, so the sceptic, in a vain attempt to be wise beyond what is permitted to man, plunges into a darkness more deplorable, and a blindness more incurable than that of the common herd, whom he despises, and would fain instruct.
As a man without forethought scarcely deserves the name of a man, so forethought without reflection is but a metaphorical phrase for the instinct of a beast.
As a man's salutation, so is the total of his character; in nothing do we lay ourselves so open as in our manner of meeting and salutation.
As a moth gnaws a garment, so doth envy consume a man.
As a neighboring funeral terrifies sick misers, and fear obliges them to have some regard for themselves; so, the disgrace of others will often deter tender minds from vice.
As a rule, he fights well who has wrongs to redress; but vastly better fights he who, with wrongs as a spur, has also steadily before him a glorious result in prospect - a result in which he can discern balm for wounds, compensation for valor, remembrance and gratitude in the event of death.
As a sex, women are habitually indolent; and everything tends to make them so.
As a solid rock is not shaken by the wind, so wise men falter not amidst blame or praise.
As a stick, when once it is dry and stiff you may break it, but you can never bend it into a straighter posture; so doth the man become incorrigible who is settled and stiffened into vice.
As a tract of country narrowed in the distance expands itself when we approach, thus the way to our near grave appears to us as long as it did formerly when we were far off.
As a tree falls, so shall it lie.
As a vessel is known by the sound, whether it be cracked or not; so men are proved, by their speeches, whether they be wise or foolish.
As a walled town is more worthier than a village, so is the forehead of a married man more honorable than the bare brow of a bachelor.
