Excerpt from American Medicine, Vol. 4: A Weekly Journal; July-December, 1902 Vacation-time does not come to the majority of physicians. Every one, however, should plan for it and should manage so that he shall not miss it. It is di icult because it is directly expensive, and may in the loss of patients prove indirectly so. There is also the ever present duty of not neglecting our chief duty, the care of those who are not yet recovered from their illness, and of those whose time of confinement is approaching. But the duty to patients is also a duty to keep one's own health, to unbend and relax the mind, and by rest and the healing of Nature to be all the better prepared to meet the demands of practice. Burke warned us that they who always labor can have no true judgment. There is no calling in which it is so dangerous to allow habit to rule, the depressing in uence of over-appli cation, and of continuous application as it is in medicine. Of all men the physician should bring to every case a spontaneity and a keen sensitiveness of mind, in order that no subtle sign of disease or vague suggestion of cure may be ignored. Nothing better aids in securing this mental attitude than an entire change of thought and action, for a longer or shorter season, and at least once a year. Shop should be shut up and left, and not a word of it talked for at least one month of the twelve. It is possible; there is some colleague who is trustworthy, and on the Whole it is perhaps a real gain instead of a loss even in money and patients. We believe the majority of patients are pleased to know their physician takes a summer vacation. Perhaps there is a little human pride, not of the highest kind, in their feeling; and perhaps, too, they are glad to be rid of us for awhile. Surely they come back when we come, back, both better for the test. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
