Death is better than a bitter life or continual sickness.
My son, hear me, and despise me not, and at the last thou shalt find as I told thee: in all thy works be quick, so shall there no sickness come unto thee.
For excess of meats bringeth sickness, and surfeiting will turn into choler.
My son, in thy sickness be not negligent: but pray unto the Lord, and he will make thee whole.
