The London Times: John Diamond, 86 – Bestselling author and pioneer of holistic healing through the arts
When John Diamond was a medical student he related how two patients came into the hospital ward with similar injuries caused by a motorbike accident. They went on to develop the same infection for which they were given the same antibiotic. Yet at the end of the week one patient had died and the other was on his way to recovery. When John asked his professor the reason, he was told simply that some patients have “it” and others don’t. The patient who survived fully embraced life while the other turned his face to the wall.
