EXERCISE
[ Also see Action Exertion Rest Walking Work ]

  Just wars are exercises of a state;
    Virtue 's in motion, and contends to rise,
      With generous ascents above a mate.

Such is the constitution of Man that labor may be said to be its own re-ward.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Let exercise alternate with rest.
      - Pythagoras

You will never live to my age without you keep yourself in breath with exercise.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

Vigorous exercise will often fortify a feeble constitution.
