Tour of Osler's Montreal 1870-1885

Le Montréal de William Osler


"After ten years of hard work I left this city (Montreal) a rich man, not in this world's goods, for such I have the misfortune -or the good fortune- lightly to esteem, but rich in the goods which neither rust nor moth has been able to corrupt- in treasures of friendship and good fellowship, and in those treasures of widened experience and a fuller knowledge of men and manners which contact with the bright minds in the profession ensures."
William Osler, "Counsels and Ideals from the Writings of William Osler", Oxford, 1905, p. 59.
