Why should (need) a man die who has sage in his garden?
  [Lat., Cur moriatur homo, cui salvia crescit in horto?]
      - Unattributed Author,
        Regimen Sanitatis Salernitanum,
        a medical poem, original and translation published by Sir Alexander Crope

Health is the thing that makes you feel that now is the best time of the year.
      - Franklin Pierce Adams

Health and cheerfulness mutually beget each other.
      - Joseph Addison,
        in the "Spectator", no. 387

Physic, for the most part, is nothing else but the substitute of exercise and temperance.
      - Joseph Addison

In health there is liberty. Health is the first of all liberties, and happiness gives us the energy which is the basis of health.
      - Henri-Frederic Amiel

Physic is of little use to a temperate person, for a man's own observation on what he finds does him good, and what hurts him is the best physic to preserve health.
      - Francis Bacon

From labor health, from health contentment springs.
      - James Beattie

I think you might dispense with half your doctors if you would only consult Dr. Sun more.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The morbid states of health, the irritableness of disposition arising from unstrung nerves, the impatience, the crossness, the fault-finding of men, who, full of morbid influences, are unhappy themselves, and throw the cloud of their troubles like a dark shadow upon others, teach us what eminent duty there is in health.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Health is the greatest of all possessions, and it is a maxim with me that a hale cobbler is a better man than a sick king.
      - Isaac Bickerstaffe (Bickerstaff)

As soils are depleted, human health, vitality and intelligence go with them.
      - Louis Bromfield

Men that look no further than their outsides, think health an appurtenance unto life, and quarrel with their constitutions for being sick; but I that have examined the parts of man, and know upon what tender filaments that fabric hangs, do wonder that we are not always so; and considering the thousand doors that lead to death, do thank my God that we can die but once.
      - Sir Thomas Browne

In these days half our diseases come from neglect of the body in overwork of the brain.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Refuse to be ill. Never tell people you are ill; never own it to yourself. Illness is one of those things which a man should resist on principle at the onset.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

When health, affrighted, spreads her rosy wing,
  And flies with every changing gale of spring.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childish Recollections (l. 3)

The healthy know not of their health, but only the sick: this is the physician's aphorism, and applicable in a far wider sense than he gives it.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Health and cheerfulness make beauty.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

In nothing do men more nearly approach the gods than in giving health to men.
  [Lat., Homines ad deos nulla re propius accedunt quam salutem hominibus dando.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Pro Ligario (XII)

Of all the garden herbes none is of greater vertue than sage.
      - Thomas Cogan (1), Heaven of Health,
        quoting from "Schola Salerni", p. 32

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 receives.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

There is this difference between those two temporal blessings, health and money. Money is the most envied, but the least enjoyed; health is the most enjoyed, but the least envied; and this superiority of the latter is still more obvious when we reflect that the poorest man would not part with health for money, but that the richest would gladly part with all their money for heath.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

In the present day, and especially among women, one would almost suppose that health was a state of unnatural. existence.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

There is no health; physicians say that we, at best, enjoy but neutrality.
      - Dr. John Donne

A sound mind in a sound body, if the former be the glory of the latter, the latter is indispensable to the former.
      - Tryon Edwards

Health is the first muse, and sleep is the condition to produce it.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson
