    studied nature from his youth, knows the properties of the human
    body, the diseases which assail it, the remedies which will
    benefit it, exercises his art with caution, and pays equal
    attention to the rich and the poor.
    - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire),

You tell your doctor, that y' are ill

The worse the scrawl, the dose the better.

Though you recover, he must break.
