Sage Sayings of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still

" Building and healthy renovation are united in a perpetual effort to construct and sustain purity. In these two are the facts and truths of life and health."

" The organized substances in the human body, to the student of Osteopathy, should be in divisions when he begins to philosophize as an operator."

Truhlar Robert E. Doctor A.T. Still in the living. Chagrin Falls, Ohio, 1950. p. 25
