Wilfred Trotter

The first [quality in a doctor] to be named must always be the power of attention, of giving one’s whole mind to the patient without the interposition of anything of oneself. It sounds simple but only the very greatest doctors ever fully attain it…The second thing to be striven for is intuition. This sounds an impossibility, for who can control that small quiet monitor? But intuition is only inference from experience stored and not actively recalled.
