timely inspiration.

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
