A broken bone can heal, but the wound a word opens can fester forever. - Jessamyn West
We gladly feast on those who would subdue us ... not just pretty words, Fester.
Sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds; Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds. - William Shakespeare
Most people are mirrors, reflecting the moods and emotions of the times; few are windows, bringing light to bear on the dark corners where troubles fester. The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows. - Sydney Harris
