Famous quotes containing the word cured:

    With the truth, you need to get rid of it as soon as possible and pass it on to someone else. As with illness, this is the only way to be cured of it. The person who keeps truth in his hands has lost.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Anger is always concerned with individuals, ... whereas hatred is directed also against classes: we all hate any thief and any informer. Moreover, anger can be cured by time; but hatred cannot. The one aims at giving pain to its object, the other at doing him harm; the angry man wants his victim to feel; the hater does not mind whether they feel or not.
    Aristotle (384–322 B.C.)

    I was cured all right.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
