an absolute cure all is a
Farfetched Fable
So practice patience to ease pain

The OED word of the day for the erasure commentary is 'panacea.' Among the citations, suggested panaceas for all physical ailments include: vodka with salt (Russia), bloodletting (France) and coffee (Starbucks? No, actually 19th century England!)
