exercise

A Quote by Karl von Bonstetten on age, body, exercise, heart, love, mind, and study

To resist the frigidity of old age one must combine the body, the mind and the heart - and to keep them in parallel vigor one must exercise, study and love.

A Quote by Joseph Story on benevolence, charity, evil, exercise, forgiveness, good, heart, humility, imagination, judgment, learning, melancholy, men, mercy, persecution, pride, proof, purpose, religion, salvation, spirit, spirituality, teaching, vengean

How it is possible to imagine that a religion breathing the spirit of mercy and benevolence, teaching the forgiveness of injuries, the exercise of charity, and the return of good for evil, can be so perverted as to breathe the spirit of slaughter and persecution, of discord and vengeance, for differences of opinion, is a most unaccountable and extraordinary phenomenon. Still more extraordinary, that it should be the doctrine, not of base and wicked men merely seeking to cover up their own misdeeds, but of good men, seeking the way of salvation with uprightness of heart and purpose. It affords a melancholy proof of the infirmity of human judgment, and teaches a lesson of humility from which spiritual pride may learn meekness, and spiritual zeal a moderating wisdom.

A Quote by Joseph K. Folsom on advertising, art, caring, christ, church, clothes, communication, control, emotion, exercise, food, health, home, honesty, learning, love, management, money, music, nations, needs, neighbors, people, sex, sharing, skill, sl

Important skills to teach young people in the home: The material processing skills, such as food handling, clothing, laundry, cleaning, taking care of what you have, throwing away or sharing with others what you don't need. The art of handling money. The arts of health management including sex, reproduction, nutrition, exercise, sleep. Mechanical skills, recreational skills, the art of managing time., The art of choosing wisely, (we have almost everything spread out before us and pushed on us by advertising. Do we feel sure that we always know how to choose wisely? The art of communication, the art of love (we need more in our own families, different peoples, cultural groups, races, nations.) The art of controlling our emotions, the art of learning a talent - love of music, and song, a love for church and Christ. The art of honesty, caring for your neighbor, volunteering. The art of studying and learning. (If we can learn all of this in the home before we leave the nest, how can we possibly go wrong.)

A Quote by Joseph Breck on body, exercise, food, garden, health, idleness, life, and mind

Man was not made to rust out in idleness. A degree of exercise is as necessary for the preservation of health, both of body and mind, as his daily food. And what exercise is more fitting, or more appropriate of one who is in the decline of life, than that of superintending a well-ordered garden? What more enlivens the sinking mind? What is more conducive to a long life?

Our delight in any particular study, art, or science rises and improves in proportion to the application which we bestow upon it. Thus, what was at first an exercise becomes at length an entertainment.

A Quote by Joseph Addison on exercise, ideas, life, mind, and understanding

From social intercourse are derived some of the highest enjoyments of life; where there is a free interchange of sentiments the mind acquires new ideas, and by frequent exercise of its powers, the understanding gains fresh vigor.

A Quote by Joseph Addison on body, cheerfulness, exercise, nature, secrets, and soul

Exercise ferments the humors, casts them into their proper channels, throws off redundancies, and helps nature in those secret distributions, without which the body cannot subsist in its vigor, nor the soul act with cheerfulness.

A Quote by John Stuart Mill on community, exercise, good, power, and purpose

The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not a sufficient warrant.

John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)
