ILLS
[ Also see Adversity Evil Mischief Wrong ]

The world is so full of ill-nature that I have lampoons sent me by people who cannot spell, and satires composed by those who scarce know how to write.
      - Joseph Addison

You have only to watch other ill-natured people to resolve to be unlike them.
      - Charles Buxton

Common and vulgar people ascribe all ill that they feel to others; people of little wisdom ascribe to themselves; people of much wisdom, to no one.
      - Epictetus

Ill-humor is nothing more than an inward feeling of our own want of merit, a dissatisfaction with ourselves which is always united with an envy that foolish vanity excites.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

All ills spring from some vice, either in ourselves or others; and even many of our diseases proceed from the same origin. Remove the vices; and the ills follow. You must only take care to remove all the vices. If you remove part, you may render the matter worse. By banishing vicious luxury, without curing sloth and an indifference to others, you only diminish industry in the state, and add nothing to men's charity or their generosity.
      - David Hume

Peevishness may be considered the canker of life, that destroys its vigor and checks its improvement; that creeps on with hourly depredations, and taints and vitiates what it cannot consume.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

They give up all sweets of kindness for the sake of peevishness, petulance, or gloom, and alienate the world by neglect of the common forms of civility, and breach of the established laws of conversation.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Think of the ills from which you are exempt.
      - Joseph Joubert

Philosophy easily triumphs over past and future ills; but present ills triumph over philosophy.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

We satisfied ourselves the other day that there was no real ill in life except severe bodily pain; everything else is the child of the imagination, and depends on our thoughts; all other ills find a remedy, either from time or moderation, or strength of mind.
      - Marquise de Sevigne, Marie de Rabutin-Chantal
