Quote of the day

By In the Loop

In 1930, during the depth of the Great Depression, Dr. William J. Mayo described coming to work, feeling thankful for his own health and being determined to serve others.

"Each day when I walk into the Clinic and see these great numbers of people … my sympathy for them and thankfulness for my own health give me the strength and the will to do more for them. I believe the heart of the Clinic has been more responsible for its extraordinary usefulness to the people and the confidence the people have in it than any other factor."

William J. Mayo, M.D.
