Famous quotes containing the word aids:
“It could be said that the AIDS pandemic is a classic own-goal scored by the human race against itself.”
“Both the Moral Majority, who are recycling medieval language to explain AIDS, and those ultra-leftists who attribute AIDS to some sort of conspiracy, have a clearly political analysis of the epidemic. But even if one attributes its cause to a microorganism rather than the wrath of God, or the workings of the CIA, it is clear that the way in which AIDS has been perceived, conceptualized, imagined, researched and financed makes this the most political of diseases.”
—Dennis Altman (b. 1943)
“Sometimes I have a terrible feeling that I am dying not from the virus, but from being untouchable.”
—Amanda Heggs, British AIDS sufferer. Quoted in Guardian (London, June 12, 1989)
