[Healing] and relieving are different. For some diseases are treated with temporary treatments, which is relieving; but others are fully treated, which is healing. So Sophocles in Electra [writes]: "whence would you find relief for my sufferings, for which it is not possible to see a cure?" That is, in no manner do our [troubles] have a better outcome.
