Literary discovery

"All that was needed was shrewd questioning, first of the patient and then of his mother, to conclude once again that the symptoms of love were the same as those of cholera."
-Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The beautiful imagery in this paragraph comparing the torments of unrequited love with that of cholera just stuck out to me. May I never have cholera.
