Nursing Quotes

It is only in the act of nursing that a woman realises her motherhood in visible and tangible fashion; it is a joy of every moment. Honore de Balzac

Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter’s or sculptor’s work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God’s spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. Florence Nightingale

Nursing would be a dream job if there were no doctors. Gerhard Kocher

Nursing encompasses an art, a humanistic orientation, a feeling for the value of the individual, and an intuitive sense of ethics, and of the appropriateness of action taken. Myrtle Aydelotte
