A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on choice, exercise, freedom, and possibility

What is freedom? Freedom is the right to choose: the right to create for oneself the alternatives of choice. Without the possibility of choice and the exercise of choice a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing.

Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)

A Quote by Anthony T. Hanson on church, exercise, and life

The Servant Messiah carries out his ministry in the lives of his ministers. His life is reproduced in their lives, so they also are servants. But this ministry is exercised in and towards the Church, so as to enable the Church itself to carry out the ministry of the Servant. The Messiah came as a Servant; his ministers are servants; and the Church he created is a Servant-Church.

A Quote by Ananda K. Coomaraswamy on architecture, exercise, society, spirituality, and worth

The vocation, whether it be that of the farmer or the architect, is a function; the exercise of this function as regards the man himself is the most indispensable means of spiritual development, and as regards his relation to society the measure of his worth.

Ananda K. Coomaraswamy (1877 -)

If you are tired or pained in any part of the body and you have not over-exercised it, then you will know that some part of your thinking may not be balanced.

A Quote by Alice Morse Earle on belief, contentment, exercise, future, garden, good, imagination, interest, life, people, and present

Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination. You are always living three, or indeed six, months hence. I believe that people entirely devoid of imagination never can be really good gardeners. To be content with the present, and not striving about the future, is fatal.

A Quote by Alexander Pope on apathy, boasts, exercise, laziness, mind, rest, strength, and virtue

In lazy apathy let stoics boast Their virtue fix'd: 't is fix'd as in a frost; Contracted all, retiring to the breast; But strength of mind is exercise, not rest.

A Quote by Aleister Crowley on change, death, eternity, exercise, experience, growth, idealism, joy, life, mankind, and mistakes

The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.
