Solid hardcover. ; "After some years of nursing practice, teaching and administration, when I returned for doctoral studies, it seemed quite natural to turn to Miss Nightingale's contributions as a base for historical research. It is from those studies that I made this collection of her aphorisms. From her own words it is easy to perceive her brilliance, charm, wit, impatience, strong will and activism. Because many of her thoughts are still evolving in nursing today, it seemed important to organize them in such a manner that they could stimulate both the neophyte and seasoned practicioner of nursing." - Foreword by compiler Evelyn R Barritt. ; 61 pages.
