There is no doubt that health and cardiac risk assessment and predictions have entered into a quantitative stage, but the error bands are still wide and the road ahead is quite hard. It becomes appropriate to repeat what Philip James Bailey (1816?1905), an English writer, said in Festus (scene V, A Country Town), quoted also by Lindstedt and Calder  in 1981: We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths. In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives, who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best. Wise, deep words to think about, not much different than the quotation given in the section ?Allometric Model: An Old Concept Revisited in Cardiology.? Lindstedt and Calder had insight and human perception, indeed.
