Quote on illness

Source: Unknown/Favim
Defects, disorders, diseases … can play a paradoxical role, by bringing out latent powers, developments, evolutions, forms of life, that might never be seen, or even be imaginable, in their absence. …Thus while one may be horrified by the ravages of developmental disorder or disease, one may sometimes see them as creative too — for if they destroy particular paths, particular ways of doing things, they may force on it an unexpected growth and evolution.

~Oliver Sacks
