LET us not always say,
“Spite of this flesh to-day
I strove, made head, gained ground upon the whole!”
As the bird wings and sings,
Let us cry, All good things
Are ours, nor soul helps flesh more, now, than flesh
helps soul!”
Robert Browning


THE preservation of health is a duty. Few seem conscious that there is such a thing as physical morality.
Herbert Spencer


IT is as great a duty to help the body to its due alacrity and fitness for service, as it is to tame it and bring it under.
Richard Baxter


THE first wealth is health. Sickness is poor-spirited, and cannot serve any one: it must husband its resources to live.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


IT is better to lose health like a spendthrift, than to waste it like a miser.
Robert Louis Stevenson
