Letter to a friend

I have never been anywhere but sick.  In a sense, sickness is a place, more instructive than a long trip to Europe, and it’s always a place where there’s no company, where nobody can follow.  Sickness before death is a very appropriate thing and I think those who don’t have it miss one of God’s mercies. (The Habit of Being, p. 163)
