Joyce Carol Oates
Idleness among children, as among men, is the root of all evil, and leads to no other evil more certain than ill temper.
Frequent and loud laughter is the characteristic of folly and ill manners.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield

Use of a mentally ill person's involuntary confession is antithetical to the notion of fundamental fairness embodied in the due process clause.
William J. Brennan, Jr.
If I cannot add to my own low level of understanding, I could ill afford to try to raise that of others, seeing that it belongs to our Creator and Lord to give much or little.

It's maybe hard to believe, but as a kid I really had a lot of self-doubts. My father was very ill - he was an alcoholic - so there were a lot of things that built up for me.

C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
