“But thou mayst grant this humble prayer, / Forget me not! forget me not!”
“Severe illness has (I often think) on the frame the same effect that a severe storm has on the atmosphere. I myself am much better in every respect since my late indisposition than I was before; and the mind is never perhaps so serene and tranquil as when one is recovering from sickness.”
“... I missed you terribly when I was ill. I have no female friend and neighbour; and men are not the thing on such occasions.”
Amelia Opie, English writer
(1769 - 1853)
