"It is a distortion, with something profoundly disloyal about it, to picture the human being as a teetering, fallible contraption, always needing watching and patching, always on the verge of flapping to pieces; this is the doctrine that people hear most often, and most eloquently, on all our information media. We ought to be developing a much better system for general education about human health, with more curricular time for acknowledgement, and even some celebration, of the absolute marvel of good health that is the real lot of most of us, most of the time."
The great thing about human language is it prevents us from sticking to the matter at hand.
