COMPLETE QUOTATIONS ON HEALTH

 

 

Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.

Albert Schweitzer

 

The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not.

Mark Twain

 

Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.

Buddha

 

He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.

Proverb

 

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.

Mahatma Gandhi

 

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.

Buddha

 

To wish to be well is a part of becoming well.

Seneca

 

Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning.

Thomas Jefferson

 

The first wealth is health.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Sex without love is merely healthy exercise.

Robert A. Heinlein

 

A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools.

Spanish Proverb

 

So many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health.

J. Reb Materi

 

Health is the first muse, and sleep is the condition to produce it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

Benjamin Franklin

 

A man's health can be judged by which he takes two at a time - pills or stairs.

Joan Welsh

 

In health there is freedom. Health is the first of all liberties.

Henri Frederic Amiel

 

To keep the body in good health is a duty, for otherwise we shall not be able to trim the lamp of wisdom, and keep our mind strong and clear. Water surrounds the lotus flower, but does not wet its petals.

Buddha

 

Wisdom is to the soul what health is to the body.

De Saint-Real

 

If taking vitamins doesn't keep you healthy enough, try more laughter: The most wasted of all days is that on which one has not laughed.
Nicolas-Sebastien Chamfort

 

It is not work that kills men; it is worry. Work is healthy; you can hard put more upon a man than he can bear. Worry is rust upon the blade. It is not the revolution that destroys the machinery, but the friction. Fear secrets acids; but love and trust are sweet juices.
Henry Ward Beecher

 

It may be possible to incorporate laugher into daily activities, just as is done with other heart-healthy activities, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator. The recommendation for a healthy heart may one day be exercise, eat right and laugh a few times a day.
Michael Mille

 

Imagination is not a talent of some men but is the health of every man.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it be lost.
Charles Caleb Colton

 

The healthy, the strong individual, is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he has an abscess on his knee or in his soul.

Eubie Blake

 

Take care of your body with steadfast fidelity. The soul must see through these eyes alone, and if they are dim, the whole world is clouded.

Heave


The human body has been designed to resist an infinite number of changes and attacks brought about by its environment. The secret of good health lies in successful adjustment to changing stresses on the body.

Arthur Murphy


The human body is not a thing or substance, given, but a continuous creation. The human body is an energy system which is never a complete structure; never static; is in perpetual inner self-construction and self-destruction; we destroy in order to make it new.

Thomas Arnold Mindell

 

The more I work with the body, keeping my assumptions in a temporary state of reservation, the more I appreciate and sympathize with a given disease. The body no longer appears as a sick or irrational demon, but as a process with its own inner logic and wisdom.

Tom Robbins


Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance.

Joan Welsh


Changing our diet is something we choose to do, not something we are forced to do. Instead of dreading it, try saying, "Here's another thing I get to do to help myself. Great!"

Harold Brodkey


Athletes have studied how to leap and how to survive the leap some of the time and return to the ground. They don't always do it well. But they are our philosophers of actual moments and the body and soul in them, and of our maneuvers in our emergencies and longings.

Jimmy Connors


Use it or lose it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


Intellectual tasting of life will not supersede muscular activity.

David Mccord

Exercise: you don't have time not to.

Henry Ward Beecher


To array a man's will against his sickness is the supreme art of medicine.

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross


We have to ask ourselves whether medicine is to remain a humanitarian and respected profession or a new but depersonalized science in the service of prolonging life rather than diminishing human suffering.

Sir William Osler


The desire to take medicine is perhaps the greatest feature which distinguishes man from animals.

He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything.

Arabian Proverb

 

Some people think that doctors and nurses can put scrambled eggs back into the shell.

Dorothy Canfield Fisher

 

It is a wearisome disease to preserve health by too strict a regimen.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

 

There's a lot of people in this world who spend so much time watching their health that they haven't the time to enjoy it.

Josh Billings

 

Disease is a physical process that generally begins that equality which death completes.

Samuel Johnson

 

The diseases of the present have little in common with the diseases of the past save that we die of them.

Agnes Repplier

 

We classify disease as error, which nothing but Truth or Mind can heal.

Mary Baker Eddy

 

A person's age is not dependent upon the number of years that have passed over his head, but on the number of colds that have passed through it.

Shirley W. Wynne

 

There are no such things as incurables; there are only things for which man has not found a cure.

Bernard M. Baruch

 

A bodily disease may be but a symptom of some ailment in the spiritual past.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

 

Disease is the retribution of outraged Nature.

Hosea Ballou

 

The fear of life is the favorite disease of the twentieth century.

William Lyon Phelps

 

Sickness and disease are in weak minds the sources of melancholy; but that which is painful to the body, may be profitable to the soul. Sickness puts us in mind of our mortality, and, while we drive on heedlessly in the full career of worldly pomp and jollity, kindly pulls us by the ear, and brings us to a proper sense of our duty.

Richard E. Burton

 

We are the carriers of health and disease-either the divine health of courage and nobility or the demonic diseases of hate and anxiety.

Joshua Loth Liebman

 

Our mental and emotional diets determine our overall energy levels, health and well-being more than we realize. Every thought and feeling, no matter how big or small, impacts our inner energy reserves.
Doc Children


There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.

Mother Teresa
 

Heartfelt positive feelings create far more than a healthy psychological effect. They fortify our internal energy systems and nourish the body right down to the cellular level. For that reason, we like to think of these emotions as "quantum nutrients."

Doc Childre and Howard Martin

 

If your thoughts are thoughts that draw low-frequency energy current to you, your physical and emotional attitudes will deteriorate, and emotional or physical disease will follow, whereas thoughts that draw high-frequency energy current to you create physical and emotional health.
Gary Zukav


Our mental and emotional diets determine our overall energy levels, health, and well-being to a far greater extent than most people realize. Every thought and feeling, no matter how big or small, impacts our inner energy reserves.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin

 

Think of great athletes of dancers who are able to create a special, relaxed state of mental and physical focus in order to achieve a much higher level of performance. Now you can employ that exact principle with any mental or emotional activity. And the benefit to your heart is phenomenal.

Freeze-Frame

A healthy, balanced ego expression allows you to perceive a true picture of yourself and builds a solid foundation of security. A balanced ego expression would mean appreciating yourself not just when things are going well, but especially at those times when you slip backward. Appreciate yourself for whatever progress you've made, then use that energy of appreciation to move forward. To dwell in poor-me attitudes or pitiful feelings is inverted vanity. It's a convenient hiding place, but it's still vanity. You can waste enormous amounts of energy in inverted vanity, creating reasons why you or others are to be blamed for something that happened that left you feeling victimized and powerless.
Doc Childre

 

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them - work, family, health, friends, and spirit - and you're keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls - family, health, friends, and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.

Brian Dyson
 

We are coming to understand health not as the absence of disease, but rather as the process by which individuals maintain their sense of coherence (i.e. sense that life is comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful) and ability to function in the face of changes in themselves and their relationships with their environment.

Aaron Antonovsky
 

The thousand mysteries around us would not trouble but interest us, if only we had cheerful, healthy hearts.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

A sad soul can kill you quicker than a germ.
John Steinbeck

 

Love cures people — both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it.
Dr. Karl Menninger


When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.

Health is the thing that makes you feel that now is the best time of the year.

Franklin P. Adams 

 

The concept of total wellness recognizes that our every thought, word, and behavior affects our greater health and well-being. And we, in turn, are affected not only emotionally but also physically and spiritually.

Greg Anderson'

 

To get rich never risk your health. For it is the truth that health is the wealth of wealth.

Richard Baker

 

As a remedy against all ills; poverty, sickness, and melancholy only one thing is absolutely necessary; a liking for work.

Charles Baudelaire

 

From labor health, from health contentment springs.

Melody Beattie

 

It's not the work which kills people, it's the worry. It's not the revolution that destroys machinery it's the friction.

Henry Ward Beecher

 

There's lots of people who spend so much time watching their health, they haven't got time to enjoy it.

Josh Billings

 

Energy is eternal delight.

William Blaker

 

Refuse to be ill. Never tell people you are ill; never own it to yourself. Illness is one of those things which a man should resist on principle at the onset.

Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton  

 

Any idiot can face a crisis, it's the day to day living that wears you out.

Anton Chekhov

 

Money is the most envied, but the least enjoyed. Health is the most enjoyed, but the least envied.

Charles Caleb Colton

 

You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 today and we don't know where the hell she is.

Ellen Degeneres

 

The health of the people is really the foundation upon which all their happiness and all their powers as a state depend.

Benjamin Disraeli

 

You can set yourself up to be sick, or you can choose to stay well.

Wayne Dyer

 

Give me health and a day, and I will make the pomp of emperors ridiculous.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Health is the condition of wisdom, and the sign is cheerfulness -- an open and noble temper.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

If you don't do what's best for your body, you're the one who comes up on the short end.

Julius Erving 

 

I've never felt better.

Douglas Fairbanks

 

By the time we've made it, we've had it.

Malcolm S. Forbes

 

Nothing is more fatal to health than an over care of it.

Benjamin Franklin

 

To lengthen thy Life, lessen thy meals.

Benjamin Franklin

 

I have never yet met a healthy person who worried very much about his health, or a really good person who worried much about his own soul.

John B. S. Haldane

 

A bodily disease which we look upon as whole and entire within itself, may, after all, be but a symptom of some ailment in the spiritual part.

Nathaniel Hawthorne

 

As we free our breath (through diaphragmatic breathing) we relax our emotions and let go our body tensions.

Gay Hendricks

 

The groundwork of all happiness is health.

Leigh Hunt

 

People who don't know how to keep themselves healthy ought to have the decency to get themselves buried, and not waste time about it.

Henrik Ibsen 

 

The human body has been designed to resist an infinite number of changes and attacks brought about by its environment. The secret of god health lies in successful adjustment to changing stresses on the body.

Harry J. Johnson

 

Health is my expected heaven.

John Keats

 

The vitamin has been reified. A chemical intangible originally defined as a unit of nutritive value, it was long ago reified into a pill. Now it is a pill; no one except a few precise scientists define it as anything else. Once the vitamin became a pill, it became ''real'' according to the precepts of American Cartesianism: ''I swallow it, therefore it is.''

Florence King

 

The building of a perfect body crowned by a perfect brain, is at once the greatest earthly problem and grandest hope of the race.

Dio Lewis

 

Joy, temperance, and repose, slam the door on the doctor's nose.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

Older people shouldn't eat health food, they need all the preservatives they can get.

Robert Orben

 

Quit worrying about your health. It'll go away.

Robert Orben

 

All excess is ill, but drunkenness is of the worst sort. It spoils health, dismounts the mind, and unmans men. It reveals secrets, is quarrelsome, lascivious, impudent, dangerous and bad.

William Penn

 

I don't eat junk foods and I don't think junk thoughts.

Peace Pilgrim

 

Attention to health is life greatest hindrance.

Plato

 

Health consists with temperance alone.

Alexander Pope

 

Is not that a great principle for all of living? The people who will really accomplish great things in life are those who are willing to discipline their lives, who maintain their health, their vitality, their efficiency through this process of rigorous disciplining of what they take into their bodies and what they do in life. It's a very important thing in terms of championship living.

Bob Richards

 

The quality of your life is dependent upon the quality of the life of your cells. If the bloodstream is filled with waste products, the resulting environment does not promote a strong, vibrant, healthy cell life-nor a biochemistry capable of creating a balanced emotional life for an individual.

Anthony Robbins

 

Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.

Jim Rohn

 

A feeble body weakens the mind.

Jean Jacques Rousseau

 

One of the signs of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important.

Bertrand Russell

 

Look to your health; and if you have it, praise God, and value it next to a good conscience; for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of; a blessing that money cannot buy.

I know a lot of athletes and models are written off as just bodies. I never felt used for my body.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

 

Of all the anti-social vested interests the worst is the vested interest in ill-health.

George Bernard Shaw

 

I believe you can have whatever you really want in this life, in one form or another, sooner or later. All you have to do is take care of your health and be lucky enough to live for a while. But you can't have it all at once and you can't have it forever. No life has the room for everything in it, not on the same day.

Barbara Sher

 

I am always busy, which is perhaps the chief reason why I am always well.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

 

People who overly take care of their health are like misers. They hoard up a treasure which they never enjoy.

Laurence Sterne

 

All bodies are slow in growth but rapid in decay.

Publius Cornelius Tacitus

 

Measure your health by your sympathy with morning and spring. If there is no response in you to the awakening of nature --if the prospect of an early morning walk does not banish sleep, if the warble of the first bluebird does not thrill you --know that the morning and spring of your life are past. Thus may you feel your pulse.

Henry David Thoreau

 

Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.

Mark Twain  

 

The way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not.

Mark Twain

 

The winners in life treat their body as if it were a magnificent spacecraft that gives them the finest transportation and endurance for their lives.

Denis Waitley

 

Time And health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.

Denis Waitley

 

Look to your health; and if you have it, praise God and value it next to a good conscience; for health is the second blessing that money cannot buy; therefore value it, and be thankful for it.

Izaak Walton

 

The human body is the best picture of the human soul.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

 

Doing good to others is not a duty, it is a joy, for it increases our own health and happiness.

Zoroaster

 

I have every sympathy with the American who was so horrified by what he has read of the effects of smoking that he gave up reading.
Lord Conesford

 

When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.
Billy Graham

 

The only way for a rich man to be healthy is by exercise and abstinence, to live as if he were poor.

Paul Dudley White

 

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society
Krishnamurti


To get rich never risk your health. For it is the truth that health is the wealth of wealth

Richard Baker

Francois De La Rochefoucauld


To safeguard one's health at the cost of too strict a diet is a tiresome illness indeed.

Bob Schwartz

                              
Not only don't diets work, they're actually designed to fail. It's not you or your lack of will power that's the problem. It's that diets by their very nature simply don't work.

Fred A. Allen

Napoleon Bonaparte


Water, air, and cleanness are the chief articles in my pharmacy.

If I had my way I'd make health catching instead of disease.
