...happiness gives us the energy which is the basis of health.

Henri Frdric Amiel

A comfortable house is a great source of happiness. It ranks immediately after health and a good conscience.

Sydney Smith

A desire to be in charge of our own lives, a need for control, is born in each of us. It is essential to our mental health, and our success, that we take control.

Robert F. Bennett

A fox may steal your hens, Sir, a whore your health and pence, Sir, your daughter rob your chest, Sir, your wife may steal your rest, Sir, a thief your goods and plate. But this is all but picking, with rest, pence, chest and chicken; it ever was decreed, Sir, if lawyer's hand is feed, Sir, he steals your whole estate.

John Gay

A good conscience is to the soul what health is to the body; it preserves constant ease and serenity within us; and more than countervails all the calamities and afflictions which can befall us from without.

Joseph Addison

A little rebellion now and then...is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.

Thomas Jefferson, Letter to James Madison, 1787

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

Danish proverb

A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses.

Hippocrates

Age does not depend upon years, but upon temperament and health. Some men are born old, and some never grow up.

Tryon Edwards

Age, health, and stage in life have nothing to do with serving or not serving. In each season of life there are attributes and qualities of life and experience that God values in service.

Bruce Kemper

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

Angels and ministers of grace defend us.Be thou a spirit of health, or goblin damned,Bring with thee airs from heaven, or blasts from hell,Be thy intents wicked, or charitable,Thou com'st in such a questionable shape,That I will speak to thee.

William Shakespeare

Anguish of mind has driven thousands to suicide; anguish of body, none. This proves that the health of the mind is of far more consequence to our happiness, than the health of the body, although both are deserving of much more attention than either of them receive.

C. C. Colton

As Hurricane Sandy clearly demonstrated, there is a woeful lack of redundancy in the nation's health care facilities. However, take solace in knowing there are no lack of choices in those things the advertisers convince us should matter more. For example, right now, you can purchase at least five different varieties of perfume by Paris Hilton at your local mall so, even if you can no longer find a single hospital anywhere nearby, the good news is we live in a society where you'll never lack for options to smell good while you suffer in pain.

Catman Cohen

As I see it, every day you do one of two things build health or produce disease in yourself.

Adelle Davis

As I see it, every day you do one of two things: build health or produce disease in yourself.

Adelle Davis

As it was 189 years ago, so today the cause of America is a revolutionary cause. And I am proud this morning to salute you as fellow revolutionaries. Neither you nor I are willing to accept the tyranny of poverty, nor the dictatorship of ignorance, nor the despotism of ill health, nor the oppression of bias and prejudice and bigotry. We want change. We want progress. We want it both abroad and at homeand we aim to get it.

Lyndon B. Johnson

As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.

Sallust

Attention to health is life's greatest hindrance.

Plato

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

Mark Twain

Books are pleasant, but if by being over-studious we impair our health and spoil our good humour, two of the best things we have, let us give it over. I, for my part, am one of those who think no fruit derived from them can recompense so great a loss.

Montaigne

By health I mean the power to live a full, adult, living, breathing life in close contact with... the earth and the wonders thereof - the sea - the sun.

Katherine Mansfield

Character is the most important and differentiating aspect of human life. In my view, when Wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when Health is lost, something is lost; but when Character is lost, everything is lost. You can judge the Character of a woman/man by how she/he treats fellow people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people and animals who can't fight back. Character is the biggest asset, so don't lose it for any price.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Dear loved papa, I so much want to see you. I have just ended my lesson of arithmetic, I think that I succeeded well. We go to school of nurses, I am very happy there. Today it is raining and it is very humid. I am in Tatiana’s room with Olga and Tatiana. When you will see Boba, say to him that my hands itch me. I try to breed my own livestock of poetry of earth. Olga says that I smell poor, but it is not true. When you will come back, I shall wash myself in your tub. I hope that you did not forget the history which I told you during our promenade. I am sitting down and scratch my nose with the left hand. Olga wanted to slap me for it, but I avoided the hand. Be happy and in good health. I think extremely of you and embrace you tenderly.

Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia
