Fellow to American Academy of Nursing. The things I am parting from and leaving them to Diego Palma, all for my ego.
Diego needs to be indispensable friend with me still and carry the things that matter for us all. Big Sigh.
Nursing is an art; and if it is to be made an art, it requires as exclusive a devotion, as hard a preparation, as any painter’s or sculptor’s work;
for what is the having to do with dead canvas or cold marble, compared with having to do with the living body-the temple of God’s spirit?
It is one of the Finest Arts;
I had almost said, the finest of the Fine Arts.
