A Balm for Gilead: Meditations on Spirituality and the Healing Arts by Daniel Sulmasy OFM MD PhD.

One of the best lines … “Suffering is what remains when one’s control runs out.” (p 62)

The funniest line … “Every honest wife should know that she will have no more control over her husband once he is dead than she had while he was living.” (p 133)

Most poetic line … “Love’s language looms long beyond the lamentations of the living.” (p. 137 – last line of the book)
