Poison

Never take the antidote before the poison.

Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.

I would much prefer to suffer from the clean incision of an honest lancet than from a sweetened poison.

Good humor is the health of the soul, sadness its poison.

Even bees, the little almsmen of spring bowers, know there is richest juice in poison-flowers.

Jealous people poison their own banquet and then eat it.

Anger repressed can poison a relationship as surely as the cruelest words.

Let a man avoid evil deeds as a man who loves life avoids poison.

Lady Nancy Astor: Winston, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea.

Churchill: Nancy, if I were your husband, I'd drink it.
