Thomas Sydenham (or Syndenham) (September 10, 1624 - December 29, 1689), was an English physician. He was born at Wynford Eagle in Dorset, where his father was a gentleman of property.
In one of his last appearances, Mitterrand, the agnostic president, was asked what the real God might say to him if he went to heaven. God would say: 'At last, you know.' And I would hope that He would add, 'Welcome.'
When the passions become masters, they are vices.
Thou Graybeard, old Wisdom, mayst boast of thy treasures; Give me with young Folly to live; I grant thee thy calm-blooded, time-settled pleasures; But Folly has raptures to give.
