[ Also see Cure Decay Health Medicine Mind Pain Physicians Quackery Sickness ]

But just disease to luxury succeeds,
  And ev'ry death its own avenger breeds.
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Man
         (ep. III, l. 165)

Desperate diseases need desperate cures.
      - Proverb

This sickness doth infect
  The very, life-blood of our enterprise.
      - William Shakespeare

O, he's a limb that has but a disease:
  Mortal, to cut it off; to cure it, easy.
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Menenius at III, i)

Diseases desperate grown
  By desparate appliance are relieved,
    Or not at all.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, iii)

This apoplexy, as I take it, is a kind of lethargy, an't please your lordship, a kind of sleeping in the blood, a whoreson tingling.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Falstaff at I, ii)

I'll forbear;
  And am fallen out with my more headier will
    To take the indisposed and sickly fit
      For the sound man.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (King Lear at II, iv)

Before the curing of a strong disease,
  Even in the instant of repair and health,
    The fit is strongest. Evils that take leave,
      On their departure most of all show evil.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Pandulph at III, iv)

Some remedies are worse than the disease itself.
  [Lat., Graviora quaedam sunt remedia periculis.]
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims (301)

Decay and disease are often beautiful, like the pearly tear of the shellfish and the hectic glow of consumption.
      - Henry David Thoreau
