Usage examples for malady
The ravages of mental distress affected the soul of man in the same way that acute physical anguish affected the body; and an intelligent being, suffering from a moral malady had surely a right to destroy himself, a right he shares with the sheep, that, fallen a victim to the 'staggers, ' beats its head against a tree. – The Country Doctor by Honore de Balzac
