“It occurred to me that there was no difference between men, in intelligence or race, so profound as the difference between the sick and the well.” F. Scott Fitzgerald in The Great Gatsby

History is something that very few people have been doing while everyone else was ploughing fields and carrying water buckets… We celebrate accomplishment. But often times we neglect to acknowledge that without life, without health, without other people “ploughing the fields”, there can be no “Greats”.
– Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Harari
