It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Take, for example, the African jungle, the home of the cheetah. On whom does the cheetah prey? The old, the sick, the wounded, the weak, the very young, but never the strong. Lesson: If you would not be prey, you had better be strong.

You're not sick you're just in love.
When you die, it will not be because you are sick, but because you were alive.
Seneca the Younger
Suppose, then, that all men were sick or deranged, save one or two of them who were healthy and of right mind. It would then be the latter two who would be thought to be sick and deranged and the former not!

W. Daniel Hillis

Who ever loves, if he do not propose The right true end of love, he's one that goes To sea for nothing but to make him sick.

Rainer Werner Fassbinder
