Famous quotes containing the words exhaustion, poor and/or health:

    The becoming of man is the history of the exhaustion of his possibilities.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    In verity ... we are the poor. This humanity we would claim for ourselves is the legacy, not only of the Enlightenment, but of the thousands and thousands of European peasants and poor townspeople who came here bringing their humanity and their sufferings with them. It is the absence of a stable upper class that is responsible for much of the vulgarity of the American scene. Should we blush before the visitor for this deficiency?
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    My long sickness
    Of health and living now begins to mend,
    And nothing brings me all things.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
