Does anyone know who said this quote:

“The greatest medicine of all is to teach people how not to need it.”

I know there are some websites who credits this to the father of western medicine, Hippocrates. However those sites seems to be unreliable or does not cite any sources. If any of you have the answer I would appreciate if you can help this poor guy out. Smile

I found several sites that gaveHippocrates as the author, however no citation was given. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, supposedly wrote many books, but even the authorship of some of those are questionable.

Thank you for the input Zendam! Smile But in my case, it actually doesn't matter if it came from Hippocrates himself or someone from the "Hippocratic school of medicine". I just need a somewhat reliable source to accredit the quote to. Anyway, thanks for giving some time looking man I really do appreciate it.

You could assign it as "Hippocrates (attrib.)."
