Famous quotes containing the words disease, coronary and/or heart:

    Drug misuse is not a disease, it is a decision, like the decision to step out in front of a moving car. You would call that not a disease but an error of judgment.
    Philip K. Dick (1928–1982)

    Divorce is the psychological equivalent of a triple coronary bypass.
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

    A crazy man that found a cup,
    When all but dead of thirst,
    Hardly dared to wet his mouth
    Imagining, moon-accursed,
    That another mouthful
    And his beating heart would burst.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
