A Quote by Gertrude Jekyll on certainty, effort, encouragement, exercise, experience, faith, god, good, knowledge, love, success, wit, words, and work

The good gardener knows with absolute certainty that if he does his part, if he gives the labour, the love, and every aid that his knowledge of his craft, experience of the conditions of his place, and exercise of his personal wit can work together to suggest, that so surely will God give the increase. Then with the honestly-earned success comes the consciousness of encouragement to renewed effort, and, as it were, an echo of the gracious words, 'Well done my good and faithful servant'.

A Quote by George Burns on exercise, happiness, and home

Everyday happiness means getting up in the morning, and you can't wait to finish your breakfast. You can't wait to do your exercises. You can't wait to get out - and you can't wait to come home, because the soup is hot.

A Quote by Frederick Law Olmstead on action, beauty, body, economics, exercise, fatigue, influence, mind, and rest

If we analyze the operations of scenes of beauty upon the mind, and consider the intimate relation of the mind upon the nervous system and the whole physical economy, the action and reaction which constantly occur between bodily and mental conditions, the reinvigoration which results from such scenes is readily comprehended. . . . The enjoyment of scenery employs the mind without fatigue and yet exercises it; tranquilizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus, through the influence of the mind over the body gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigoration to the whole system.

A Quote by Franklin D. Richards on choice, conscience, country, exercise, good, government, and secrets

We are indeed fortunate to live in this favored country where we can participate in the selection of our governmental leaders and register our choice in a secret ballot. The selection of proper leaders is extremely important in maintaining good government. I encourage all of you who are eligible to vote to exercise your franchise according to the dictates of your conscience.

A Quote by Franklin D. Richards on ability, acceptance, circumstances, criticism, exercise, good, and patience

Sometimes we are misunderstood, even by those who are closest to us. Under such circumstances, patience will develop within us the capacity to accept criticism and censure, whether we feel such criticism is warranted or not. This ability to exercise forbearance under provocation means that we are following the Savior's teachings, to do good to those who despitefully use us and to turn the other cheek.

If thou wouldst preserve a sound body, use fasting and walking; if a healthful soul, fasting and praying. Walking exercises the body; praying exercises the soul; fasting cleanses both.

A Quote by Frances P. Cobbe on cooking, dogs, exercise, liberals, love, people, time, and world

The time comes to every dog when it ceases to care for people merely for biscuits or bones, or even for caresses, and walks out of doors. When a dog really loves, it prefers the person who gives it nothing, and perhaps is too ill ever to take it out for exercise, to all the liberal cooks and active dog-boys in the world.
