Some eloquent lines about illness


“Illness is the night-side of life, a more onerous citizenship.
Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the
well and the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use only
the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for
a spell, to identify ourselves of that other place.”

Susan Sontag
