"I will sell Chiropractic, serve Chiropractic, and save Chiropractic if it will take me twenty life times to do it. I will promote it within the law, without the law, in keeping with the law or against the law in order to get sick people well and keep the well from getting sick."
— B.J. Palmer
This is a quote brought to us today in an assembly by Dr. Daniel Knowles, member of the Sherman Board of Trustees. There is a spirit in this quote that I love. One may argue whether or not we chiroprac-TORS actually "get sick people well." It's a philosophical question. One may argue that the concept is medically oriented. As for me, I look to the spirit of the message and gain from it what I will.
In this case I hear the dedication of B.J. Palmer to the principles, to the application and the purpose of chiropractic. He knew what chiropractic was and is capable of. That is something to contemplate in and of itself.
