The power of sunlight

“It is the unqualified result of all my experience with the sick, that second only to their need of fresh air is their need of light; that, after a close room, what hurts them most is a dark room. And it is not only light but direct sunlight that they want. I had rather have the power of carrying my patient about after the sun, according to the aspect of the rooms, if the circumstances permit, than let him linger in a room when the sun is off. People think that the effect is on the spirits only. This is by no means the case. The sun is not only a painter but a sculptor.”

― Florence Nightingale
