"The key to being a sucsessful intern is what we give up: sleep, friends, a normal life. We sacrifice it all for that one amazing moment, that moment when you can legally call yourself a surgeron. There are days that make the sacrifices seem worth while. And then there are the days when everything seems like a sacrifice. And then there are the sacrifices that you can't even figure out why you're making."
"A wise man once said you can anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant is nothing comes without a price so before you go into battle you better decide how much you're willing to lose. Too often going after what feels good means letting go of what you know is right. And letting someone in means abandoning the walls you've spent a life time building. Of course the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don't see coming. When we don't have time to come up with a strategy, to pick or a side or to measure the potention loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around, that's when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear."
