Illness is the most heeded of doctors: to kindness and wisdom we make promises only; pain we obey. - Marcel Proust (In Search of Lost Time Quotes)

Illness is the most heeded of doctors: to kindness and wisdom we make promises only; pain we obey.[La maladie est le plus écouté des médecins: à la bonté, au savoir on ne fait que promettre ; on obéit à la souffrance.]
