Chapter 71: To Know Illness

To be aware, unknowingly, is the highest achievement.

Unknowingly, to be aware (of your illness), is also an illness.

Saints are not diseased. They are sick of sickness.

Only a man who is sick of sickness is not ill.

As one who has a chronic disease, this passage speaks very strongly to me about learning to live with the way your body is, not how you want it to be.
