In an age of explosive development in the realm of medical technology, it is unnerving to find that the discoveries of Salk, Sabin, and even Pasteur remain irrelevant to much of humanity.
Farmer quotes
[It] was seemly [of Paul], I thought, resisting beatification. But then he told me, ďPeople call me a saint and I think, I have to work harder. Because a saint would be a great thing to be.Ē . . . I felt a small inner disturbance. It wasnít that the words seemed immodest. I felt I was in the presence of a different person from the one Iíd been chatting with a moment ago, someone whose ambitions I hadnít yet begun to fathom.
I canít sleep. Thereís always somebody not getting treatment. I canít stand that.

Farmer Paul quotes
Iím going to build my own fucking hospital. And thereíll be none of that there, thank you.
