Giving comfort under affliction requires that penetration into the human mind, joined to that experience which knows how to soothe, how to reason, and how to ridicule; taking the utmost care never to apply those arts improperly.

Giving comfort under affliction requires that penetration into the human mind, joined to that experience which knows how to soothe, how to reason, and how to ridicule; taking the utmost care never to apply those arts improperly.

Henry Fielding/Quotes
Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea.
All nature wears one universal grin.
Fashion is the science of appearance, and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be.
One fool at least in every married couple.
If you make money your god, it will plague you like the devil.
Some folks rail against other folks, because other folks have what some folks would be glad of.
It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.
A rich man without charity is a rogue; and perhaps it would be no difficult matter to prove that he is also a fool.
Dancing begets warmth, which is the parent of wantonness. It is, Sir, the great grandfather of cuckoldom.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.

Yeah. First and foremost, do no harm - whatever good reasons or excuses you have.

Going the long way around to say nurse, doctor or caregiver.
