16 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sir William Osler (1849-1919) had a long and distinguished career as a physician and professor at McGill University, the University of Pennsylvania, the Johns Hopkins University, and finally, as the Regius Chair in Medicine at Oxford University. Over the course of his professional life, Osler gave many addresses - mostly to medical students - on medical ethics, medicine and the humanities, the relationship between the medical practitioner and the patient, and, as the titular essay makes clear, on the "way of life" he advocated for the ethical physician. He remains an inspiration to many contemporary medical practitioners; there are active Osler Societies throughout the world." "While Osler's talks were frequently published during his lifetime and they have been published individually and in different compilations since his death, none contain the more than 1500 annotations that appear here, notes that serve to explain the many philosophical, biblical, historical, and literary allusions contained in Osler's writings."--BOOK JACKET

The quotable Osler by William Osler( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir William Osler (1849-1919) is often considered the pre-eminent physician of the 20th century. A humanist who emphasized compassion for the individual, a doctor whose bedside skills and manner were emulated by admirers and students, an educator whose concepts revolutionized clinical teaching, Osler is regarded by many as the ideal medical practitioner. His eloquent essays and speeches, laced with principles and precepts written in an aphoristic style, have influenced generations of physicians. This newly revised and updated paperback edition of The Quotable Osler is the ideal resource for those seeking an apt quote for an article or presentation, or for those wanting to sample Osler's thought-provoking and uplifting messages. Osler's meaningful and valuable teachings are timeless, and this new paperback edition is a wonderful gift for a fellow physician, medical student, or a graduating resident
Walt Whitman and Sir William Osler : a poet and his physician by Philip W Leon( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1919, Sir William Osler, M.D., born in Ontario, was the Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford University and the most famous medical doctor in the world. In that year he wrote his Reminiscences about his personal and professional relationship thirty years earlier with the American poet Walt Whitman. Dr. Osler died before his manuscript could be published. Now, Philip W. Leon presents for the first time the complete text of Osler's Reminiscences, revealing the extent of the doctor's relationship with Whitman." "Whitman, Osler, and their mutual friends form a nineteenth-century tapestry, woven from the worlds of literature, medicine, and art, that includes novelists such as Henry James, Edith Wharton, and Owen Wister; medical doctors such as the Canadian mystic Richard M. Bucke, author of Cosmic Consciousness, and S. Weir Mitchell, famous for his "rest cure" prescribed for Whitman, Wharton, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Virginia Woolf, and others; artists Thomas Eakins and John Singer Sargent; and Victorian literati Edmund Gosse, the Brownings, Swinburne, and the Rossettis." "The culmination of research among archival sources at McGill, Johns Hopkins, Oxford, and Manchester, Walt Whitman and Sir William Osler presents previously unpublished documents such as Osler's marginal notes in his presentation copy of Leaves of Grass, and Osler's correspondence with members of a fraternal group in England who blended worship of Whitman with homosexual tendencies, radical socialism, and religion."--BOOK JACKET

On the way to the United States to deliver lectures, Olser promised to talk to the students. This is his "lay sermon," a plea to do the day's work, to live in the day. He quotes the dictum: "Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand."
