A Quote by Dean Ornish on diet, exercise, meditation, and nutrition

Eating a vegetarian diet, walking (exercising) everyday, and meditating is considered radical.  Allowing someone to slice your chest open and graft your leg veins in your heart is considered normal and conservative.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on diet, food, veganism, new age, and speciesist

Nobody seems more obsessed by diet than our anti-materialist, otherworldly, New Age, spiritual types.  But if the material world is merely illusion, an honest guru should be as content with Budweiser and bratwurst as with raw carrot juice, tofu, and seaweed slime.

Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)

A Quote by Sir Walter Ralegh on diet, faith, glory, hope, immortality, joy, quiet, and salvation

Give my scallop-shell of quiet, My staff of faith to walk upon, My scrip of joy, immortal diet, My bottle of salvation, My gown of glory, hope's true gage; And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

A Quote by Sir Robert Baden-Powell on age, charity, children, day, diet, duty, finance, freedom, home, leisure, life, love, mankind, mind, peace, pleasure, sacred, wives, and work

Possibly the best suggestion in condensed form, as to how to live, was given by my old Headmaster, Dr. Haig Brown, in 1904, when he wrote his Recipe for Old Age. A diet moderate and spare, Freedom from base financial care, Abundant work and little leisure, A love of duty more than pleasure, An even and contented mind In charity with all mankind, Some thoughts too sacred for display In the broad light of common day, A peaceful home, a loving wife, Children, who are a crown of life; These lengthen out the years of man Beyond the Psalmist's narrow span.

Sir Robert Baden-Powell (1857 - 1941)
