Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.
But you, my lord and venerable pope, you who take the place of Christ, and the successor to the supreme shepherd in apostolic dignity, do not through sloth allow this pestilence to grow, do not by conniving and dissimulation loosen the reins on this raging impurity. This disease is spreading like a cancer, and its poisonous breed will reach out endlessly unless its evil growth is cut off by the scythe of the gospel.peter damian
In fact, without any exaggeration, the current mechanism of money creation through credit is certainly the "cancer" that's irretrievably eroding market economies of private property.maurice allais
I suspect that the vast majority of people, not knowing in advance whether they will either end up in a permanently vegetative state or be diagnosed with cancer, would prefer that any resources that would be spent on PVS care be reallocated to cancer research--or some similar enterprise that has the potential to help human beings who might actually recover.jacob m. appel
Linux is not in the public domain. Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches. That's the way that the license works.steve ballmer
The chemotherapy was very peculiar, something that makes you feel much worse than the cancer itself, a very nasty thing. I used to go to treatment on my own, and nearly everybody else was with somebody. I wouldn't have liked that. Why would you want to make anybody sit in those places?Maggie Smith
We have a cancer within, close to the presidency, that is growing. It isgrowing daily.john dean
My final word, before I'm done,
Is 'cancer can be rather fun'.
Thanks to the nurses and Nye Bevan
The NHS is quite like heaven
Provided one confronts the tumour
With a sufficient sense of humour.
I know that cancer often kills,
But so do cars and sleeping pills;
And it can hurt one till one sweats,
So can bad teeth and unpaid debts.
Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.edward abbey
The immediate source of ecological crisis is capitalism... Capitalism is a cancer in the biosphere... I believe the color of radicalism today is not red, but green.
Three years ago, around Christmas, when she was starring in The King and I in London, Mum was diagnosed with cancer. Elaine thought she should come out of the show, but Mum wanted her to finish her contract. That was very hard for Elaine, having to go on stage night after night knowing she wanted to be with Mum.elaine paige
Yeah, yeah, I know I got rid of the headache. Now I got cancer.abraham polonsky
Nous remercions le Dr Jean-Claude Rodet dont les travaux et les écrits ont servi de base et de support à l'élaboration de ce guide universel proposé par la ligue nationale française contre le cancer et la fondation pour l'avancement de la recherche anti-âge.jean-claude rodet
If a man dies of cancer in fear and despair, then cry for his pain and celebrate his life. The other man, who fought like hell and laughed in the end, but also died, may have had an easier time in his final months, but took his leave with no more humanity.stephen jay gould
But, in fact, depression is not a side effect of cancer. Depression is a side effect of dying. (cancer is also a side effect of dying. Almost everything is, really.)john green
He couldn’t fix the cancer of war, couldn’t even slow down the spread, but at least he could admit it was happening.
They threaten me with lung cancer, and still I smoke and smoke. If they'd only threaten me with hard work, I might stop.
We "need" cancer because, by the very fact of its incurability, it makes all other diseases, however virulent, not cancer.Gilbert Adair
Look, I'm a cancer survivor, all right? So I have great empathy for people who have pre-existing conditions and can't get insurance.Carly Fiorina
cancer didn't bring me to my knees, it brought me to my feet.Michael Douglas
You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.Stuart Scott
Despite conclusive evidence for the efficacy of clinical hypnosis in the management of many cancer related symptoms and particularly acute and chronic pain, hypnosis is currently under-utilized in these applications.
The findings suggest that hypnotherapy is a valuable tool when it comes to enhancing the coping mechanisms of cancer patients...most patients (19 out of 20) reported that after the first two hypnotherapy sessions they were able to relax for the first time in a very long period, felt less tired and more energetic, had more refreshing night sleep and as a result were able to cope better with their daily activities.
I think it's absolutely clear that the fiscal path we are on is not sustainable , and for me, the best analogy is these deficits are like a cancer, and over time they will destroy the country from within.
