What is lou gehrigs disease?

Famous quotes containing the words disease and/or lou:

    Perfect Scepticisme ... is a disease incurable, and a thing rather to be pitied or laughed at, then seriously opposed. For when a man is so fugitive and unsettled that he will not stand to the verdict of his own Faculties, one can no more fasten any thing upon him, than he can write in the water, or tye knots in the wind.
    Henry More (1614–1687)

    Why don’t you come up sometime ‘n see me ? I’m home every evening ... come on up, I’ll tell your fortune.
    Harvey Thew, screenwriter, John Bright, screenwriter, and Lowell Sherman. Lady Lou (Mae West)
