Life is like wrestling a gorilla

So we had a crazy busy day on Tuesday, got a lot of consults, including one patient who's been in the hospital since December. It was 8:30pm and I was exhausted, my brain hurt, my stomach was rumbling and I was not looking forward to the next day because I knew I'd have to come in pretty early. As I was driving back to my place, I was reminded of a quote that one of the attending physicians told me is posted in the transplant clinic office:

Life is like wrestling a gorilla - you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla stops.
