Famous quotes containing the word chronic:

    Perhaps our originality manifests itself most strikingly in what we do with that which we did not originate. To discover something wholly new can be a matter of chance, of idle tinkering, or even of the chronic dissatisfaction of the untalented.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    What the horrors of war are, no one can imagine. They are not wounds and blood and fever, spotted and low, or dysentery, chronic and acute, cold and heat and famine. They are intoxication, drunken brutality, demoralisation and disorder on the part of the inferior ... jealousies, meanness, indifference, selfish brutality on the part of the superior.
    Florence Nightingale (1820–1910)

    Before now poetry has taken notice
    Of wars, and what are wars but politics
    Transformed from chronic to acute and bloody?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
