Malaria, Where is Thy Sting?

“This day relenting God hath placed within my hand, a wondrous thing; and God be praised.  At His command,

Seeking His secret deeds with tears and toiling breath, I find thy cunning seeds, O million-murdering Death.

I know this little thing a myriad men will save. O Death, where is thy sting? Thy victory, O Grave?”

– Ronald Ross, 1897 – after discovering that malaria lives in a mosquito’s stomach
