O, that great maroon snail

I went trolling for a fun liver-related quote to post tonight, and found this little gem by Richard Selzer:

"The liver, that great maroon snail: No wave of emotion sweeps it.
Neither music nor mathematics gives it pause in its appointed tasks."

For those of you who are either surgical or fashion enthusiasts and are wondering, that's Dr. Richard Selzer, of Yale Medical School, not Richard Selzer a.k.a. Mr. Blackwell, fashion critic who's famous for his annual worst and best dressed lists. Or... maybe they're one and the same?!?! (You heard it hear first!)


  • Who knew there were any "fun liver-related" quotes out there. Good work. :-)
