Heatherlegh's Prescription

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), "The Phantom Rickshaw," The Phantom Rickshaw and Other Tales (New York: John W. Lovell Company, 1890), pp. 7-57 (at 9):
Heatherlegh is the dearest doctor that ever was, and his invariable prescription to all his patients is, "lie low, go slow, and keep cool." He says that more men are killed by overwork than the importance of this world justifies.
