One day in May 1930, Celia took her twoyear-
old son for a swim at the yacht club, but it
was already the onset of the Argentine winter,
cold and windy. That night, the little boy had
a coughing fit. A doctor diagnosed him as suffering
from asthmatic bronchitis and prescribed
the normal remedies, but the attack lasted for
several days. Ernestito had developed chronic
asthma, which would afflict him for the rest of
his life and irrevocably change the course of his
parents' lives. ~ Jon Lee Anderson
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Jon Lee Anderson
I was a fat child; I was asthmatic. No wonder I'm a hypochondriac. ~ Alber Elbaz
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Alber Elbaz
There was some sort of commotion going on outside, and I decided I'd had enough. I went to the door and stuck my head out. Marco was gasping for breath on the sofa, and two of the guards were bent over a cell phone.
"What are you doing?" I demanded.
"Trying to record this," the smart-ass from the shopping trip told me. "Nobody is going to believe us otherwise."
"Well, cut it out. It isn't funny!"
"On what planet?"
I glared at him, which did no good,because he simply went back to to tinkering with the phone. So I looked at Marco. "Can't you do anything with them?"
Marco flopped a hand at me, tears streaming down his reddened cheeks, and tried to say something. But all that came out for several moments were asthmatic wheezes. I bent over his prone form, starting to worry about him, and he put a hand on my neck and pulled me down.
" It ... is ... funny," he gasped. ~ Karen Chance
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Karen Chance
Yet if one looks closely one sees that there is no essential difference between a beggar's livelihood and that of numberless respectable people. Beggars do not work, it is said; but, then, what is work? A navvy works by swinging a pick. An accountant works by adding up figures. A beggar works by standing out of doors in all weathers and getting varicose veins, chronic bronchitis, etc. It is a trade like any other; quite useless, of course - but, then, many reputable trades are quite useless. And as a social type a beggar compares well with scores of others. He is honest compared with the sellers of most patent medicines, high-minded compared with a Sunday newspaper proprietor, amiable compared with a hire-purchase tout - in short, a parasite, but a fairly harmless parasite. He seldom extracts more than a bare living from the community, and, what should justify him according to our ethical ideas, he pays for it over and over in suffering. I do not think there is anything about a beggar that sets him in a different class from other people, or gives most modern men the right to despise him. ~ George Orwell
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by George Orwell
Seneca had an extreme trick for practising amor fati. He was asthmatic, and attacks brought him almost to the point of suffocation. He often felt that he was about to die, but he learned to use each attack as a philosophical opportunity. While his throat closed and his lungs strained for breath, he tried to embrace what was happening to him: to say "yes" to it. I will this, he would think; and, if necessary, I will myself to die from it. When the attack receded, he emerged feeling stronger, for he had done battle with fear and defeated it. ~ Sarah Bakewell
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Sarah Bakewell
I'm asthmatic. I was a lot bigger back then, and I still get winded on stage today. But I've learned how to pace it now. I have musical breaks in there. ~ Meat Loaf
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Meat Loaf
Nobody would ever convince me that the bronchitis and pneumonia were caused by cigarettes. ~ Barbara Warren
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Barbara Warren
Asthmatic spewer of filth gasps, but clean air does not suffice
To fuel fires fueled by thoughts got rotten
Lest we all be forgotten things
That sit like dust upon the mantel of her mind ~ Neil Leckman
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Neil Leckman
Bedsprings creaking, headboard banging, heavy breathing in triplicate (the bedroom sounds like a convention of asthmatic dirty phone callers have gathered there) ~ Gillibran Brown
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Gillibran Brown
Asthmatic immigrant learns to breathe by writing. ~ Gary Shteyngart
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Gary Shteyngart
To stop smoking was actually really easy because I had already started to cut down. My husband is asthmatic, and he just can't for the life of him imagine why anybody would put smoke in their mouth, so he really helped me to start cutting down. ~ Holly Marie Combs
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Holly Marie Combs
And a utility belt! I'm like an asthmatic Batman! ~ Michael Buckley
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Michael Buckley
My father sits at the head of a table before the carcass of an enormous American turkey. What he is ashamed of is the one act of decency I have yet encountered in all the tales of our family's past. A young boy with a dead father and a dead friend bends down before a country dog and feeds it his butter sandwich. And I know that sandwich. Because he has made it for me. Two slices of that dark, unbleached Russian bread, the kind that tastes of badly managed soil and a peasant's indifference to death. On top of it, the creamiest, deadliest of American butter, slathered in thick feta-like hunks. And on top of that cloves of garlic, the garlic that is to give me strength, that is to clear my lungs of asthmatic gunk, and make of me a real garlic-eating strong man. At a table in Leningrad, and a table in deepest Queens, New York, the ridiculous garlic crunches beneath our teeth as we sit across from each other, the garlic obliterating whatever else we have eaten, and making us one. ~ Gary Shteyngart
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Gary Shteyngart
You take my breath away... which I find very rude because I'm asthmatic. ~ Teagan Hunter
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Teagan Hunter
My dad had emphysema and both of my parents had chronic bronchitis and ended up with cancers - all smoking related. ~ Loni Anderson
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Loni Anderson
I used many times to touch my own chest and feel, under its asthmatic quiver, the engine of the heart and lungs and blood and feel amazed at what I sensed was the enormity of the power I possessed. Not magical power, but real power. The power simply to go on, the power to endure, that is power enough, but I felt I had also the power to create, to add, to delight, to amaze and to transform. ~ Stephen Fry
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Stephen Fry
We are dealing, then, with an absurdity that is not a quirk or an accident, but is fundamental to our character as people. The split between what we think and what we do is profound. It is not just possible, it is altogether to be expected, that our society would produce conservationists who invest in strip-mining companies, just as it must inevitably produce asthmatic executives whose industries pollute the air and vice-presidents of pesticide corporations whose children are dying of cancer. And these people will tell you that this is the way the "real world" works. The will pride themselves on their sacrifices for "our standard of living." They will call themselves "practical men" and "hardheaded realists." And they will have their justifications in abundance from intellectuals, college professors, clergymen, politicians. The viciousness of a mentality that can look complacently upon disease as "part of the cost" would be obvious to any child. But this is the "realism" of millions of modern adults.

There is no use pretending that the contradiction between what we think or say and what we do is a limited phenomenon. There is no group of the extra-intelligent or extra-concerned or extra-virtuous that is exempt. I cannot think of any American whom I know or have heard of, who is not contributing in some way to destruction. The reason is simple: to live undestructively in an economy that is overwhelmingly destructive would require of any one of us, or of any small gr ~ Wendell Berry
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Wendell Berry
London: A place you go to get bronchitis. ~ Fran Lebowitz
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Fran Lebowitz
I know from my constituency what is going on. Doctors that are told, begged, by mothers, 'Please don't write down that my child as asthma. Please lie and say it's bronchitis, because if you write down asthma, when my child turns 18 or 20 and has to get his or her own insurance, it will be a pre-existing condition.' ~ Barbara Boxer
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Barbara Boxer
The traditional writer is a sensitive only child, asthmatic, who sits on the window seat watching the drops of rain slide down the pane, very introspective. I'm not inward-looking. I would never go to a shrink. I don't want to know what I'm thinking. I don't really like discussions in my family. It may be an avoidance thing. ~ Deborah Moggach
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Deborah Moggach
The father, Trevor, was an asthmatic, but what he lacked in being able to breath quietly, he more than made up for with parental skills. ~ Alan Partridge
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Alan Partridge
It were as though the building's kilometres of clanky old ductwork connected up to an asthmatic giant with poor oral hygiene, hidden away somewhere in the basement. ~ B.P. Gregory
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by B.P. Gregory
I've always had bronchitis. I've been administered the Sacrament of Death three times for it. ~ Mercedes McCambridge
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Mercedes McCambridge
I talk fast because I'm asthmatic, and I'm desperately hoping the words get out before my breath fails. ~ Sid Waddell
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Sid Waddell
Moving on was always the end plan.
New York,he remembered, was a fair distance away.It should be far enough. As for tonight, he was going to have a shot of whiskey in his tea to help smooth out the edges. Then by God, he was going to sleep if he had to bash himself over the head to accpmplish it.
And he wasn't going to give Keeley another thought.
The knock on the door had him cursing under his breath.Though she'd been doing well,his first worry was that the mare with bronchitis had taken a bad turn.He was already reaching for the boots he'd shed when he called out.
"Come in,it's open.Is it Lucy then?"
"No,it's Keeley." One brow lifted, she stood framed in the door. "But if you're expecting Lucy,I can go."
The boots dangled from his fingertips, and those fingertips had gone numb. "Lucy's a horse," he managed to say. "She doesn't often come knocking on my door. ~ Nora Roberts
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Nora Roberts
And the blunts and liquor killing our lungs and liver. The asthmatic drug-addict, I function with it ~ Black Thought
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Black Thought
These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig. ~ Alfred Hitchcock
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Alfred Hitchcock
Monsieur, beware of love! It is lying in ambush everywhere; it is watching for you at every corner; all its snares are laid, all its weapons are sharpened, all its guiles are prepared! Beware of love! Beware of love! It is more dangerous than brandy, bronchitis or pleurisy! It never forgives and makes everybody commit irreparable follies. ~ Guy De Maupassant
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Guy De Maupassant
Ferbus assumed a hyperventilating position, his hands on his knees. 'Oh no,' Skyla said, concern splashing across her face. 'Is he anemic? Clinically asthmatic?'
'No,' Uncle Mort said, thwacking Ferbus on the head as he started climbing the stairs. 'Just lazy.'
'Clinically lazy!' Ferbus wheezed. ~ Gina Damico
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Gina Damico
If you have any mind to keep my respect, I recommend you not to add imbecility to these qualities by imagining that such a girl as I am will be content with your asthmatic love, and not look for youth and good looks and pleasure by way of a variety - ~ Honore De Balzac
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Honore De Balzac
Madame Boulle, in spite of her experiences among the highest English families, was amazed at the coolness shown by Lady Emily. A grandchild in danger of drowning, a young man in danger of a pneumonia and a bronchitis, and she was entirely calm, not even impressed by Pierre's bravery. Bravery in the face of danger, Madame Boulle explained, was the characteristic of her family. ~ Angela Thirkell
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Angela Thirkell
The air conditioning in Lamborghinis used to be an asthmatic sitting in the dashboard blowing at you through a straw. ~ Jeremy Clarkson
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Jeremy Clarkson
I wonder why Steven wasn't at swimming club tonight?" Archie asked.
"He's caught bronchitis," Mrs Akran said.
Imran thought for a second before replying. "I would like to catch a dinosaur too. I wonder what he feeds it?"
Archie looked at his friend his face looked as if he was in pain before he burst out laughing. "Imran you're tragic. Bronchitis is like a bad cold it's not a type of dinosaur. ~ Mark A. Cooper
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Mark A. Cooper
She put a higher value on independence than an asthmatic put on oxygen.' Tzader ~ Sherrilyn Kenyon
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
The Bermuda Triangle coughs up myths like a consumptive asthmatic. Missing vessels are blamed on aliens. Atlantis. Time rifts. Ghost ships. Magnetic anomalies. Methane eruptions. People go mad. People lose their minds. Sometimes I think I've been in the Bermuda Triangle my whole life. ~ Chelsea Cain
Asthmatic Bronchitis quotes by Chelsea Cain
Long experience has taught me that in England nobody goes to the theatre unless he or she has bronchitis. ~ James Agate
