    Illness quotes by:    

Serious illness doesn't bother me for long because I am too inhospitable a host.

    Author: Henry Ward Beecher

It is this unquiet self-love that renders us so sensitive. The sick man, who sleeps ill, thinks the night long. We exaggerate, from cowardice, all the evils which we encounter; they are great, but our sensibility increases them.

    Author: Hosea Ballou

It may seem a strange principle to enunciate as the very first requirement in a hospital that it should do the sick no harm.

In sickness the soul begins to dress herself for immortality. And first she unties the strings of vanity that made her upper garments cleave to the world and sit uneasy.

    Author: Jeremy Taylor

I will trust Him. Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him; in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him; if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. My sickness, or perplexity, or sorrow may be necessary causes of some great end, which is quite beyond us. He does nothing in vain.

    Author: John Henry Newman

My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.

    Author: Martin Luther

Health is not valued till sickness comes.

    Author: Thomas Fuller
