exercise

A Quote by Judge Ronald Buckwalter on citizenship, exercise, government, laws, potential, sacred, and speech

If the Government is going to intrude upon the sacred ground of the First Amendment and tell its citizens that their exercise of protected speech could land them in jail, the law imposing such a penalty must clearly define the prohibited speech not only for the potential offender but also for the potential enforcer.

A Quote by Richard Milhouse Nixon on exercise, government, presidency, questions, and separation

Under the doctrine of the separation of powers, the manner in which the president personally exercises his assigned executive powers is not subject to questioning by another branch of government.

A Quote by Rex Guinn on acting, body, chess, children, day, enthusiasm, exercise, fortune, friendship, life, medicine, mind, mistakes, newspapers, questions, temptation, and work

Life after Fifty Everything hurts and what doesn't hurt doesn't work. The gleam in your eyes is from the sun hitting your bifocals. You feel like the night before and you haven't been anywhere. You get winded playing chess. Your children begin to look middle aged. You begin to outlive enthusiasm. Your mind makes contracts your body can't meet. You know all the answers, but nobody asks you the questions. You look forward to a dull evening. Your favorite part of the newspaper is 25 Years Ago Today. You sit in a rocking chair and can't get it going. Your knees buckle and your belt won't. You reget all those mistakes resisting temptation. Dialing long distance wears you out. Your back goes out more than you do. A fortune teller offers to read your face. You burn the midnight oil after 9:00 pm. You sink your teeth into a steak and they stay there. You get your exercise acting as a pallbearer for your friends who exercise. You have too much room in the house & not enough room in the medicine cabinet. The best part of my day is over when the alarm goes off.

Get Health. No labor, effort nor exercise that can gain it must be grudged.

A Quote by Ralph W. Sockman, D.D. on army, christ, church, exercise, habits, impulses, life, play, religion, soldiers, and worship

Habit must play a larger place in our religious life. We worship when we feel like it, we pray when we feel like it. We read the Bible when we feel like it. Leaving our religious exercises to the promptings of impulse, we become creatures of impulse rather than soldiers of Christ. An army made up of creatures of impulse would be only a mob. So is a church.

You carve out the organization's character through your daily choices. You shape its conscience as you exercise your own.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on ethics, excellence, exercise, and mediocrity

The only way we can develop muscle is through regular exercise. As soon as we stop stretching and working toward higher ethics, our standards start to sag. The muscle gets soft, and instead of excellence we have to settle for mediocrity. Maybe something even worse.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on ethics, exercise, individuality, and responsibility

You have to get beyond blaming others . . . give up your excuses . . . stand responsible for what you do . . . ultimately, ethics ends up an individual exercise.

A Quote by Plato on body, exercise, knowledge, and mind

Bodily exercise, when compulsory, does no harm to the body; but knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind.

A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on books, brothers, celebrity, determination, diet, exercise, imagination, libraries, life, majorities, population, and women

Imagine of all of life were determined by majority rule. Every meal would be a pizza. Every pair of pants, even those in a Brooks Brothers suit, would be stonewashed denim. Celebrity diet and exercise books would be the only thing on library shelves. And-since women are a majority of the population-we'd all be married to Mel Gibson.

P.J. O'Rourke (1947 -)
