I enjoy convalescence. It is the part that makes the illness worth while.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Back to Methuselah

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.
      - Jeremy Taylor

An' I thowt 'twur the will o' the Lord, but Miss Annie she said it wur draains,
  For she hedn't naw coomfut in 'er, an' arn'd naw thanks fur 'er paains.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Village Wife

As I see in the body, so I know in the soul; they are oft most desperately sick who are least sensible of their disease; whereas he that fears each light wound for mortal seeks a timely cure, and is healed. I will not reckon it my happiness that I have many sores, but since I have them, I am glad they grieve me. I know the cure is not the more dangerous because my wounds are more grievous; I should be more sick if I complained less.
      - Arthur Warwick

The sick soon come to understand that they live in a different world from that of the well and that the two cannot communicate.
      - Jessamyn West

Most of the time we think we're sick, it's all in the mind.
      - Thomas Wolfe (Thomas Clayton Wolfe),
        Look Homeward, Angel (pt. I, ch. 1)

Lemira's sick; make haste, the doctor call,
  He comes: but where is his patient?--at the ball;
    The doctor stares; her woman curtsies low,
      And cries, "My lady, sir, is always so:
        Diversions put her maladies to flight;
          True, she can't stand, but she can dance all night.
            I've known my lady (for she loves a tune)
              For fevers take an opera in June:
                And, though perhaps you'll think the practice bold,
                  A midnight park is sovereign for a cold."
      - Edward Young

I've known my lady (for she loves a tune)
  For fevers take an opera in June:
    And, though perhaps you'll think the practice bold,
      A midnight park is sov'reign for a cold.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire V, l. 185)
