Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.
- Og Mandino
Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering – an image of death.
To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
Much of your pain is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
- Khalil Gibran
I am confident that nobody… will accuse me of selfishness if I ask to spend time, while I am still in good health, with my family, my friends and also with myself.
- Nelson Mandela
In order to lead a country or a company, you’ve got to get everybody on the same page and you’ve got to be able to have a vision of where you’re going. America can’t have a vision of health care for everybody, green economy, regulations – can’t have a bunch of piece-meal activities. It’s got to have a vision.
- Jack Welch
Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.
- Lao Tzu
