Quote of the Day: Mar. 9, 2006

From The Great Influenza:

“In January 1923 John Dewey wrote in the New Republic, “It may be doubted if the consciousness of sickness was ever so widespread as it is today… The interest in cures and salvations is evidence of how sick the world is.” He was speaking of a consciousness that went beyond physical disease, but physical disease was part of it. He was speaking of the world of which F. Scott Fitzgerald declared “all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken.””
