Famous quotes containing the word chronic:

    Adder-faced singularity
    Espouses a nailed-up childhood,
    Skin-disease pardons
    Soft horror of living,
    A gabble is forgiven
    By chronic solitude.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    What the horrors of war are, no one can imagine. They are not wounds and blood and fever, spotted and low, or dysentery, chronic and acute, cold and heat and famine. They are intoxication, drunken brutality, demoralisation and disorder on the part of the inferior ... jealousies, meanness, indifference, selfish brutality on the part of the superior.
    Florence Nightingale (1820–1910)

    Ants are the only creatures on earth, other than man, who make war. They campaign, they are chronic aggressors, and they make slave laborers of the captives they don’t kill.
    Ted Sherdeman, and Gordon Douglas. Dr. Medford (Edmund Gwenn)
