Complications - Atul Gawande

This quote was added by manalchowd
We look for medicine to be an orderly field of knowledge and procedure. But it is not. It is an imperfect science, an enterprise of constantly changing knowledge, uncertain information, fallible individuals, and at the same time lives on the line. There is science in what we do, yes, but also habit, intuition, and sometimes plain old guessing. The gap between what we know and what we aim for persists. And this gap complicates everything we do.

I don't like the syntax of this quote as it violates some rules of good writing. Sentences should not begin with 'and' or 'but'.
