Famous quotes containing the words network, student and/or doctor:

    A culture may be conceived as a network of beliefs and purposes in which any string in the net pulls and is pulled by the others, thus perpetually changing the configuration of the whole. If the cultural element called morals takes on a new shape, we must ask what other strings have pulled it out of line. It cannot be one solitary string, nor even the strings nearby, for the network is three-dimensional at least.
    Jacques Barzun (b. 1907)

    One must be a student before one can be a teacher.
    Chinese proverb.

    The doctor should be opaque to his patients and, like a mirror, should show them nothing but what is shown to him.
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)
