The Buddha’s Words of Wisdom
Possessed of five qualities, a sick man is of much help to himself. What five? He knows what medicine is good for him, he knows the right measure in his treatment, he takes the medicine, he described his illness to the one who nurses him out of kindness, saying: “In going, it goes like this; in coming, it comes like this; while there, it is like this,” and he is one who endures the various pains of the sickness.
