The Greatest Paragraph of All Time

“Art is long. But life is short. ┬áThe opportunity fleeting. Experience delusive.
Judgment therefore difficult.The physician must not only do the right
thing himself, but make sure the patient, the attendants, and the externals
cooperate.”
—Hippocrates, 480-360 BC
Comment: no other paragraph I have ever found is so concise in its expression,
so tight in its logical sequence, so universally applicable, so painfully true.
Think law, parenting, teaching, sports….
