1.The game. They say either a person has what it takes to play, or they don't. My mother was one of the greats.
2. The seven years you spend here as a surgical resident will be the best and worst of your life. You will be pushed to the breaking point. This is your starting line. This is your arena. How well you play? That's up to you.
3.As you know, the honour of performing the first surgery is reserved for the intern that shows the most promise.
4. Terrorise one, and the rest fall in line.
5. Pull your balls out of your back pocket, let's go.
6.Surgery is hot, it's the Marines, it's the macho, it's hostile, it's hardcore.
外科很热门. 它具有领航性.有男子气概. 有竞争力. 很强大.(用来形容别的也很不错)
7. I can't think of any one reason why I want to be a surgeon. But I can think of a thousand reasons why I should quit. They make it hard on purpose. There are lives in our hands. There comes a moment when it's more than just a game. And you either take that step forward, or turn around and walk away. I could quit. But here's the thing: I love the playing field.
8.It's all about lines. The finish line at the end of residency, waiting in line for a chance at the operating table, and then, there's the most important line. The line separating you from the people you work with. It doesn't help to get too familiar. To make friends. You need boundaries between you and the rest of the world. Other people are far too messy. It's all about lines. Drawing lines in the sand, and praying like hell no one crosses them.
