Disease Quotes

These are some of the best 'Disease' quotations and sayings.

Desperate diseases require desperate remedies.

Disease is an experience of so-called mortal mind. It is fear made manifest on the body.

Disease is the retribution of outraged Nature.

In these days, half our diseases come from the neglect of the body in the over­work of the brain. In this railway age, the wear and tear of labor and intellect go on without pause or self-pity. We live longer than our forefathers; but we suffer more from a thousand artificial anxieties and cares. They fatigued only the muscles, we exhaust the finer strength of the nerves.

It is with disease of the mind, as with those of the body; we are half dead before we understand our disorder, and half cured when we do.

Sickness and disease are in weak minds the sources of melancholy; but that which is painful to the body, may be profitable to the soul. Sickness, the mother of modesty, puts us in mind of our mortality, and while we drive on heedlessly in the full career of worldly pomp and jollity, kindly brings us to a proper sense of our duty and destiny.

Some remedies are worse than the disease.

The disease and its medicine are like two factions in a besieged town; they tear one another to pieces, but both unite against their common enemy - Nature.
