Sickness: Food Quotes

“It is not good for all our wishes to be filled; through sickness we recognize the value of health; through evil, the value of good; through hunger, the value of food; through exertion, the value of rest.”

Dorothy Canfield Fisher (1879-1958) American writer.


“Figs are restorative, and the best food that can be taken by those who are brought low by long sickness...professed wrestlers and champions were in times past fed with figs.”

Pliny, Roman naturalist (A.D. 23-79)


“If one consults enough herbals...every sickness known to humanity will be listed as being cured by sage.”

Varro Taylor, Ph.D. (herb expert)
