Famous quotes containing the word sickness:

    The conservative assumes sickness as a necessity, and his social frame is a hospital, his total legislation is for the present distress, a universe in slippers and flannels, with bib and papspoon, swallowing pills and herb-tea.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The sickness of our times for me has been just this damn thing that everything has been getting smaller and smaller and less and less important, that the romantic spirit has dried up, that there is no shame today.... We’re all getting so mean and small and petty and ridiculous, and we all live under the threat of extermination.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)

    Autumn hath all the summer’s fruitful treasure;
    Gone is our sport, fled is poor Croydon’s pleasure.
    Short days, sharp days, long nights come on apace,
    Ah! who shall hide us from the winter’s face?
    Cold doth increase, the sickness will not cease,
    And here we lie, God knows, with little ease.
    From winter, plague, and pestilence, good Lord, deliver us!
    Thomas Nashe (1567–1601)
