I learned pretty well everything I know about human nature

Somerset MaughamSomerset Maugham por David Levine

@ www.nybooks.com

 

In October 1897, Maugham received his diploma from St Thoma's qualifying him to practise as MRCS (Member of the Royal College of Surgeons) and LRCP (Licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians).

 

Somewhat to his surprise the Senior Obstetric Physician offered him an appointment, but with his ambition set on a career as a writer he turned it down. He had proved himself competent in medicine and in later life he would always acknowledge the debt he owed to his training.

 

"I think", he wrote in old age, "I learned pretty well everything I know about human nature in the 5 years I spent at St Thoma's Hospital".
