A Surgeons Prayer

"A Medical Litany"
From inability to let well alone;From too much zeal for the new and contempt for what is old;From putting knowledge before wisdom, science before art and cleverness before common sense;From treating patients as cases; andFrom making the cure of the disease more grievous than the endurance of the same, Good Lord, deliver us.Sir Robert Hutchinson, 1871-1960(Consulting Physician to the London Hospital and President of the Royal College of Physicians)
( not so sure bout those dates but it is a good prayer)
