The first wealth is health.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

What a searching preacher of self-command is the varying phenomenon of health!
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be sober and temperate, and you will be healthy.
      - Benjamin Franklin

The rule is simple: Be sober and temperate, and you will be healthy.
      - Benjamin Franklin

Nor love, not honour, wealth nor pow'r,
  Can give the heart a cheerful hour
    When health is lost. Be timely wise;
      With health all taste of pleasure flies.
      - John Gay, Fables (pt. I, fable 31)

Health that snuffs the morning air.
      - James Grainger, Solitude (l. 35), an ode

In our natural body every part has a necessary sympathy with every other; and all together form, by their harmonious conspiration, a healthy whole.
      - Sir William Hamilton (3)

A coole mouth, and warme feet, live long.
  [A cool mouth, and warm feet, live long.]
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Hee that goes to bed thirsty riseth healthy.
  [He that goes to bed thirsty rises healthy.]
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Christ's gospel could never have been delivered by one who was diseased.
      - John McClellan Holmes

There are three wicks you know to the lamp of a man's life: brain, blood, and breath. Press the brain a little, its light goes out, followed by both the others. Stop the heart a minute, and out go all three of the wicks. Choke the air out of the lungs, and presently the fluid ceases to supply the other centres of flame, and all is soon stagnation, cold, and darkness.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.,
        Professor at the Breakfast Table (XI)

A strong body makes the mind strong.
      - Thomas Jefferson

Health is the requisite after morality.
      - Thomas Jefferson

Health is worth more than learning.
      - Thomas Jefferson

The most uninformed mind with a healthy body is happier than the wisest valetudinarian.
      - Thomas Jefferson

If we lived correctly, there would be no need to concern ourselves with the bowel. However, most of us are not living right.
      - Bernard Jensen,
        Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management

Every man that has felt pain knows how little all other comforts can gladden him to whom health is denied. Yet who is there does not sometimes hazard it for the enjoyment of an hour?
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Health is certainly more valuable than money; because it is by health that money is procured; but thousands and millions are of small avail to alleviate the protracted tortures of the gout, to repair the broken organs of sense, or resuscitate the powers of digestion. Poverty is, indeed, an evil from which we naturally fly, but let us not run from one enemy to another, nor take shelter in the arms of sickness.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Health is so necessary to all the duties as well as pleasures of life that the crime of squandering it is equal to the folly.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Our prayers should be for a sound mind in a healthy body.
  [Lat., Orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano.]
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal), Satires
         (X, 356)

It's no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
      - Jiddu Krishnamurti

Preserving the health by too strict a regimen is a worrisome malady.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld, Maxims
         (no. 285)

Gardening, or husbandry, and working in wood, are healthy recreations.
      - John Locke (1)

Thou chiefest good,
  Bestow'd by heaven, but seldom understood.
      - Lucanus (Marcus Annaeus Lucan)

In these days half our diseases come from neglect of the body in overwork of the brain.
      - Lord Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, 1st Earl of Lytton ("Owen Meredith")
