Never as yet have I gone astray, whether in treatment or in prognosis, as have so many other physicians of great reputation. . . . Whoever seeks fame by deed, not alone by learned speech, need only become familiar, at small cost of trouble, with all that I have achieved by active research during the course of my entire life.
