The more medical needs we have,
the more we realize that our body is just a vehicle,
and that our vehicle will eventually fade into rust and dust.
In terms of human ingenuity and initiative, it also turns out that the
heart is not only open to new possibilities, it actively scans for them, ever seeking new, intuitive
understanding of what matters most to you in your life or work.
The trouble with always trying to preserve the health of the body is
that it is so difficult to do without destroying the health of the mind.
The greatest wealth is health.
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.
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.
If I'd known I was going to live so long, I'd have
taken better care of myself.
Physical ills are the taxes laid upon this wretched life; some
are taxed higher, and some lower, but all pay something.
If I had my way I'd make health catching instead of disease.
If you have health, you probably will be happy, and if you
have health and happiness, you have all the wealth you need,
even if it is not all you want.
