    List of maxims and proverbs that criticise medical treatments, 'medical botany', and the competition between quacks and genuine medical practitioners. For example: 'One Physician is better than two, but three are fatal', and, since 'Wise Persons [...] go to a Physician' and 'fools go to a Quack [...,] the large disproportion between the two classes explains why so many Quacks make their fortune while many a clever physician starves'.
