Translation of the beginning of Hippocrates’ “Aphorismi”, as inscribed on the walls of Harvard Medical School (for easier reading: “Life is short | And the art long | The occasion instant | Experiment perilous | Decision difficult”). While written primarily in reference to the medical profession, this aphorism can be considered generally true…rather like the Hippocratic oath: “do no harm”. A good oath for all and sundry, no?
