In college many of my suite-mates were in medical school, and when one of them got a cold I would shout "Physician, heal thyself!" at them.

This is an example of a comment I could just as easily have kept to myself, because while I got a kick out of it, absolutely nobody else did. The net amount of pleasure in the world actually would have been greater if I had just made the comment in my head.

Getting sick is part of the human condition. I no longer say "Physician, heal thyself!" to anyone. It's out of line.
