The Irish do not want anyone to wish them well; they want everyone to wish their enemies ill.
A man has generally the good or ill qualities, which he attributes to mankind.
Part of what my work has always been about is to show that the apocalyptic character of the gospel makes the everyday possible. It gives us the time that lets us care for one another as we are ill, helps us care for one another as we experience broken relationships, and helps us take the time to worship God in a world of such violence.
If a Woman can neither Love nor Honour, she does ill in promising to Obey.
In the earliest years of the AIDS crisis, there were many gay men who were unable to come out about the fact that their lovers were ill, A, and then dead, B. They were unable to get access to the hospital to see their lover, unable to call their parents and say, 'I have just lost the love of my life.'
For good or ill, I'm a person of leadership. I do my best. I don't dodge responsibility.
Being a typical Briton, I love my home comforts and always try and find an English pub where I can tuck into some traditional English food, accompanied by a nice pint. Fortunately, I haven't been ill with food poisoning or anything like that, which is quite surprising considering how many different types of food I eat when I'm travelling.
My mother was very ill when I was 18. She had a brain operation and then a nervous breakdown. It's very strange when you see your parents, who have always been your pillars of strength, suddenly become vulnerable. You don't know whether to be angry that they are not strong or devastated.
Being ill like this combines shock - this time I will die - with a pain and agony that are unfamiliar, that wrench me out of myself.
I felt I came back rather quickly from being ill and didn't give myself the time to reflect.
I have no ill will in my heart against anybody in this world.
Congress seems to want to cure every ill known to man except unconstitutional government and high taxes.
A vitamin is a substance that makes you ill if you don't eat it.
I just became a vegetable for three months. I couldn't talk to people. I was very ill and that was part of the reason I left college.
My entire youth was spent with an incredibly ill parent... I don't think you can grow up that way and not be marked by that experience.
Nicholas A. Christakis
In my 20s I was in constant pain from undiagnosed endometriosis. With no prospect of a cure, I decided I needed a career - writing - that could accommodate being ill.
Yes, I'm obsessed with health, which has been an interesting journey. I went down the raw-food diet route, but got ill. It was really hard, especially in Britain in winter, trying to survive on raw carrots. I became so ill and anemic, so I stopped that and became a vitamin junkie. I just ate lots of vegetables, exercised and breathed.
I'm a Reagan Republican, which means I don't speak ill of other Republicans.
It's commonly said that people who've been ill in childhood and who've had an upset education never really regret that they do. It means that you don't look at the world in the way that other people do, and if you were inclined to be a writer, that's a help.
I have chronic - well, I like to call it late-stage Lyme disease and not chronic, because I like to think someday I'll be all the way cured. It took me a really long time to get diagnosed, and I was misdiagnosed for a long, long time. I was very ill during the end of Le Tigre, which was kind of why that ended, amongst other things.
When they are treated, the seriously mentally ill aren't more violent than the general population. If untreated, though, they are.
My son Beau got very ill when he was just four months old in Majorca. He contracted a really bad case of gastroenteritis. Everything feels so much worse when you don't speak the language, and you need that reassuring conversation as a mum, but you can't have it.
I meet human beings who are flawed, who are mentally ill and have enormous problems, but I don't think I've ever met someone who was a totally dark energy that had no humanity or sense of love or affection for anything in their life. That's very rare.
My parents divorced when I was seven. Because divorce is messy, for good or ill, they sent me to boarding school.
I'm just tired of people saying I'm a self-hating Jew because I'm critical of Israel or make fun of old Jewish ladies. I do not hate myself. And Jews who criticize Israel aren't necessarily mentally ill.
Then my mother was taken ill and died and my father took me to St. Mary's.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
