The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they’ll ease
Your will they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
~Wayne Fields, What the River Knows

Water, air, and cleanliness are the chief articles in my pharmacopoeia. ~Napoleon I

Just because you’re not sick doesn’t mean you’re healthy.
I see rejection in my skin, worry in my cancers, bitterness and hate in my aching joints. I failed to take care of my mind, and so my body now goes to hospital. ~Astrid Alauda
Physical fitness can neither be achieved
by wishful thinking nor outright purchase.
Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
