PHILOSOPHY: SAMUEL HAHNEMANN
My mission permits me not to point out the means of ennobling the mind, it behoves me only to preach upon the greatest of corporeal blessings, HEALTH, which scarcely any take the trouble to seek after, and few know how to value until it is lost. It will scarcely be credited when I assert that nought is shunned more earnestly, nay is held to be more disgraceful, than rational care about the health.
We indeed hear it occasionally remarked that this or the other article of diet is wholesome or hurtful, that this or that remedy is a specific for this or that disease, this or the other habit is injurious, in the higher and lower circles of society, people interest themselves with fashionable modes of treatment, marvellous diseases, cases of sudden death, beautifying remedies, and
anecdotes about physicians. But all this is only vain trifling.
