    yeah, this thread is gonna be my like, learning to draw thread

    To rise from generation free:/Then what have I to do with thee?
    "Ars longa, vita brevis" comes from a latin translation of a greek proverb used by doctors

    Of course in their version the word translated as "ars" is "tekne" which more precisely means a craft or a skill, rather than an artform.

    What was meant by the proverb is that medicine is a complicated and difficult craft, and no one can learn it all in one lifetime.

    However, the new meaning is also a decent meaning

    At OSU's libraries they just have scanners you can use for free.
