Famous quotes containing the words smallpox and/or eradicate:

    Most of the trouble in this world has been caused by folks who can’t mind their own business, because they have no business of their own to mind, any more than a smallpox virus has.
    William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)
