The Dance of Death

XXVI. - The Physician

THE PHYSICIAN.
THE PHYSICIAN.

[94]

Medice, cura teipsum.

Lvc iiii.

Tu congnoys bien la maladie

Pour le patient secourir,

Et si ne scais teste estourdie,

Le mal dont tu deburas mourir.

Death brings the Doctor a hopeless patient, and bids him cure himself.

Nobody knows what death is, nor whether to man it is perchance the greatest of blessings, yet people fear it as if surely knew it to be the worst of evils -- Socrates
