Among the manifold misfortunes that may befall humanity the loss of health is one the severest. All the joys which life can give cannot outweigh the sufferings of the sick. Give the sick man everything and leave him his sufferings and he will feel that half the world is lost to him. Lay him on a soft silken couch, he will nevertheless groan sleepless under the pressure of the sufferings, while the miserable beggar blessed with health sleeps sweetly on the hard ground. Spread his tables with dainty meats and choice drinks, and he will thrust back the hand that prefers them and envy the poor man who thoroughly enjoys his dry crust. Surround him with pomp of kings; let his chair be a throne, and his crutch a world – swaying sceptre; he will look with contemptuous eye on marble, on gold, and on purple, and would deem himself happy, could he enjoy, even were it under a thatched roof, the health of the meanest of his servants.

Precis: Blessings of health

The loss of health is the greatest misfortune that a man can suffer from. No pleasure of the world can soothe and comfort a sick man. A sick man passes unhappy days and sleepless nights. Everything, howsoever sweet and pleasant it may be, appears to him insipid and tasteless. Instead of having the kingdom of the whole earth with his sick health he would prefer the humble lot of a poor but healthy beggar. So great are the blessings of health that all the riches of the world pale into insignificant before them.
