It is not the object of this work to teach plain anatomical facts; its aim is to show the relation of structure to function, whether it is normal function or function disturbed or impaired by injury or disease. It is explanatory and utilitarian.
by Werner Spalteholz - G. E. Stechert
The main object of studying anatomy is to obtain a mental image of the human body rather than to memorize numerous terms. Pictures of dissections aid the imagination of the student enormously and thus guide his work from the known to the unknown.
by Frederick Treves - Lea Brothers and Co.
Applied anatomy serves to give a precise basis to those incidents and procedures in practice that more especially involve anatomical knowledge. It endues the dull items of that knowledge with meaning by the aid of illustrations drawn from experience.
