Alois Alzheimer is credited with identifying the first published case of “presenile dementia”, which his colleague Kraepelin would later refer to as Alzheimer's disease.

Alois Alzheimer quotes~
• “Excessive reservations and paralysing despondency have not helped the sciences to advance nor are they helping them to advance, but a healthy optimism that cheerfully searches for new ways to understand, as it is convinced that it will be possible to find them.”

Lou Andreas-Salomé
b. 2-12-1861; St. Petersburg, Russia
d. 1-5-1937; Göttingen, Germany

Psychoanalyst and author Lou Andreas-Salomé had friendships with Nietzsche, Wagner, Freud, and Rilke.

Lou Andreas-Salomé quotes
• “Poetry is something in-between the dream and its interpretation.”
• “Whoever reaches into a rosebush may seize a handful of flowers; but no matter how many one holds, it's only a small portion of the whole. Nevertheless, a handful is enough to experience the nature of the flowers. Only if we refuse to reach into the bush, because we can't possibly seize all the flowers at once, or if we spread out our handful of roses as if it were the whole of the bush itself – only then does it bloom apart from us, unknown to us, and we are left alone.”

Avicenna (Ibn Sina)
b. c. 980; present day Uzbekistan
d. c. 1037; Iran

Persian Ibn Sina, the foremost physician of his time and considered a father of early modern medicine as well as “the most famous scientist of . . . all races, places, and times.”

Known as Avicenna in the West, he was a polymath - learned in astronomy, chemistry, Hafiz (completely memorized the Quran), logic, mathematics, poetry, philosophy, psychology, physics, science, theology, a Sheikh (elder), soldier, statesman, and maktab (Arabic word for elementary school) teacher.

Avicenna, writing that children can learn better when taught in classes instead of individual instruction from private tutors, said that competition and emulation among pupils, as well group discussions and debates, were useful.

Avicenna quotes ~
• “The world is divided into men who have wit and no religion and men who have religion and no wit.”
• “Now it is established in the sciences that no knowledge is acquired save through the study of its causes and beginnings, if it has had causes and beginnings; nor completed except by knowledge of its accidents and accompanying essentials.”
