“Many [medical practitioners] have abandoned “keeping up with the literature”. They are paralysed by the sheer enormity of the task: more than 20,000 journals in biomedicine are published each year and a consultant in a single medical sub-speciality may need to read fifteen to twenty publications a month to keep up to date." - Commentator on medical information in 1986

"If one synchronised swimmer drowns, do all the rest have to drown too?" - Steven Wright
"The things we know best are the things we haven't been taught." - Luc, Marquis de Vauvenargues
