" Please let me be.
Please go away.
I am NOT going
to get up today!"
from "I am NOT going to get up today!"
No news is good news
Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us.
Runs With Decorative Scissors
This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good.
"What does not destroy me makes me stronger".
A mighty creature is a germ
Though smaller than a pachyderm
His childish pride he often pleases
By giving people rare diseases
And so if you friend feel infirm
You probably contain a germ.
As a people, we have become obsessed with Health. There is something fundamentally, radically unhealthy about all this. We do not seem to be seeking more exuberance in living as much as staving off failure, putting off dying. We have lost all confidence in the human body.
Doctor! Doctor! I see dots. I think I've got the chicken spots
Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway
Everything that I love is gone, and I'm tired of hanging on.
Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay it's not the end.
Excuses are like belly buttons: eveyone has one and they ain't worth nothin'.
Extraordinary people survive under the most terrible circumstances and they become more extraordinary because of it.
Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.
He will take care of you.
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.
I wonder if I'll be held responsible for this?
In order to change we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.
My body may be here, but my heart is at gym. (field, court, etc)
Our very infirmities help us unexpectedly
Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
Pain makes man think. Thought makes man wise. Wisdom makes life endurable.
Physical ills are the taxes laid upon this wretched life; some are taxed higher, and some lower, but all pay something.
Repeat to yourself the most comforting words of all:
This, too, shall pass.
Some people are just born with tragedy in their blood.
Sometimes I get the feeling the aspirin companies are sponsoring my headaches.
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. Almond Joy has nuts, I won't.
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.
The difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter.
The greatest wealth is health.
The human spirit
is stronger than anything
that happens to it.
The I in illness is isolation, and the crucial letters in wellness are we.
The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around.... Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing
There's lots of people in this world who spend so much time watching their health that they haven't the time to enjoy it
To do nothing is sometimes a good remedy.
We never know the worth of water 'til the well runs dry.
When health is absent
Wisdom cannot reveal itself,
Art cannot become manifest,
Strength cannot be executed,
Wealth is useless, and
Reason is powerless.
