At first I was naive and youthfully direct enough to acquiesce when the patient was persistent; only little by little did I realise what was really meant, when he desired to know the truth, declaring that he did not fear death.

This is of the last importance because disease is not only cured by medicines and special treatment, but by the patients spirits as well; a cheerful and hopeful mood is an immensely powerful factor in the struggle against sickness, and its importance cannot be over-estimated.
