Based on your reading of the story ‘The Last Leaf’ and Johnsy’s experience of tiding over her illness, write a paragraph on the topic : ‘More Than Medicine, the Willingness to Live is More Important to Physical Health’.
More Than Medicine, the Willingness to Live is More Important to Physical Health More than medicine hope sustains our life on this earth. It is the elixir of life. Hope gives a willingness to live. No medicine can cure us of our problems if we do not have willingness to live our life in full. Even when the condition of our physical health reaches a critical stage, our willingness to live enhances our will power and our body’s resistance to fight against illness. It increases our immunisation power and is even more powerful than any medicine. Doctors become helpless when the patient decides to quit this life. So, hope gives us some extraordinary spiritual grace to control our fears and even to oust them from our lives. The wings of hope carry us, soaring high above the driving winds of life.
