To honor her contribution to the society and medical world, the International Nurses Day is celebrated on her birth anniversary every year. Nightingale, also known as “the lady with the lamp,” rose to prominence while serving as a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War (1853-1856), in which she supervised care for wounded soldiers.

The following are a few quotes by the legendary nurse, courtesy Brainy Quote
"The greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel."

"Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it. Far the greatest things grow by God's law out of the smallest. But to live your life, you must discipline it."
"If I could give you information of my life, it would be to show how a woman of very ordinary ability has been led by God in strange and unaccustomed paths to do In His service what He has done in her. And if I could tell you all, you would see how God has done all, and I nothing."
