Famous quotes containing the word disease:

    Man is an exception, whatever else he is. If he is not the image of God, then he is a disease of the dust. If it is not true that a divine being fell, then we can only say that one of the animals went entirely off its head.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)
