These are quotes tagged with "convalescence".
Healing, Papa would tell me, is not a science, but the intuitive art of wooing nature.
With any recovery from morbidity there must go a certain healthy humiliation.
One must not forget that recovery is brought about not by the physician, but by the sick man himself. He heals himself, by his own power, exactly as he walks by means of his own power, or eats, or thinks, breathes or sleeps.
I enjoy convalescence. It is the part that makes the illness worth while.
