"On June 22[nd], 1874, I flung to the breeze the banner of Osteopathy. For twenty-three years it has withstood the storms, cyclones, and blizzards of opposition. Her threads are stronger to-day than when the banner was first woven. Her colors have grown so bright that millions now begin to see and admire and seek shelter under her protecting folds from disease and death. Mothers and fathers come by legions, and ask why this flag was not thrown to the breeze before. It has taken many years to prepare the ground to sow the seeds of this as well as any other truth that has come to benefit man; so be patient, have faith in God and the final triumph of truth, and all will end well." - Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, Autobiography of Andrew T. Still, 1897 Happy 143rd birthday of Osteopathy!
