"The words of the diseased, even those who can manage only a murmur, carry more weight that those of the healthy.  Then, too, all healthy people will in the future know disease.  That sense of time, ah, the diseased man's sense of time, what treasure hidden in a desert cave.  Then, too, the diseased truly bite, whereas the healthy pretend to bite but really only snap at the air.  Then, too, then, too, then too."
—page 661, 2666 by Roberto Bolaño, translated by Natasha Wimmer.
