'It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.'

An inverted, symmetrical, and parallel structure from the father of medicine, Hippocrates. Chiasmus is the name for this rhetorical device.

Little Fly
Thy summer's play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing;
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath;
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die.

W.Blake

“Perfect grammar -- persistent, continuous, sustained -- is the fourth dimension, so to speak: many have sought it, but none has found it.”
