There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The sick man must follow his illness to the place where it is treated. He is set aside in one of the technical and secret zones (hospitals, prisons, refuse dumps) which relieve the living of everything that might hinder the chain of production and consumption, and which repair and select what can be sent back up to the surface of progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
More than illness or death, the American journalist fears standing alone against the whim of his owners or the prejudices of his audience.

We achieve active mastery over illness and death by delegating all responsibility for their management to physicians, and by exiling the sick and the dying to hospitals. But hospitals serve the convenience of staff not patients: we cannot be properly ill in a hospital, nor die in one decently; we can do so only among those who love and value us. The result is the institutionalized dehumanization of the ill, characteristic of our age.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No further evidence is needed to show that mental illness is not the name of a biological condition whose nature awaits to be elucidated, but is the name of a concept whose purpose is to obscure the obvious.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If our education had included training to bear unpleasantness and to let the first shock pass until we could think more calmly, many an unbearable situation would become manageable, and many a nervous illness avoided. There is proverb expressing this. It says, trouble is a tunnel thorough which we pass and not a brick wall against which we must break our head.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Professor Henry Jones: The quest for the grail is not archeology, it's a race against evil. If it is captured by the Nazis the armies of darkness will march all over the face of the earth. Do you understand me?
Indiana Jones: This is an obsession, Dad. I've never understood it. Never. Neither did Mom.
Professor Henry Jones: Oh yes she did. Only too well. Unfortunately, she kept her illness from me. All I could do was mourn her.More [04/15/2008 12:04:00]
Lawyer: The unlimited checkbook. That's how Big Tobacco wins every time on everything, they spend you to death. Six hundred million a year in outside legal - Chadbourne-Park, uh, Ken Starr's firm, Kirkland & Ellis? Listen: GM and Ford, they get nailed after eleven or twelve pickups blow up, right?

I happened to be staying in the neighborhood, and hearing of your master's illness I took the liberty of calling. How is he tonight?

He'll never see the morning.

Nigel Hartley:
He has not asked for anyone of my cloth?

Nor will he. He's set in his ways, and they are the ways of the heathen.

Nigel Hartley:
I know he won't see the rector, but though I'm a comparative stranger, I don't like to leave a man to die like that.

He'll die in his own fashion as he has lived.

Scott Carey:
A strange calm possessed me. I thought more clearly than I had ever thought before - as if my mind were bathed in a brilliant light. I recognized that part of my illness was rooted in hunger, and I remembered the food on the shelf, the cake thredded with spider web. I no longer felt hatred for the spider. Like myself it struggled blindly for the means to live.

Perhaps caused by a toad or a small dwarf living in her stomach.
