409. From: A Certain World by W. H. Auden (1970)

De Mino
After the age of eighty all contemporaries are friends
Lord Byron
Hiking in the Alps: Passed whole woods of withered pines, all withered; trunks stripped and barkless, branches lifeless; done in a single winter — their appearance reminded me of me and my family.
Basile Yanovsky
The patient in his turn, when brought into the operating room, may control himself in a civilized way, with dignity, or go completely to pieces, in panic and hysteria, despite premedication.
This, in the operating room we can always distinguish the worthy man from the pseudo-hero, the bully, the hum-bug. This holds true—in differing degrees and for different reasons—for patient, surgeon and anesthesiologist.
