A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, moderns, values, excellence, worth, culture, fulfillment, purpose, fitness, and justification

Men who have made "life" easier and more bountiful for moderns have done nothing to make life more eminently VALUABLE, fit to be valued. We appreciate our inventors and benefactors but in truth they have done nothing whatsoever to teach us how to make ourselves more excellent, more WORTHY of freedom and life and culture. It is all very well to feed multitudes with self-replicating fishes and loaves; but the question that goes unperceived is, AS WHAT are we helping man to survive? What are we encouraging this consumer to BECOME, to AIM AT, to HUNGER AFTER as the fulfillment of the whole purpose of his living?

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, truth, fitness, appropriateness, qualification, humans, and illusions

Take a good long look at human beings in their actual practices and motives; bring the utmost psychological and bio-economic factors to bear on making sense of their illusions and delusions. What then would the truth have to be, such that such human beings are FIT TO KNOW IT at all, even provisionally or tentatively?

A Quote by Scott Raymond Adams on meaning, fitness, health, and happiness

Priority-wise, it simply makes sense to take care of yourself before you start searching for a higher meaning. You aren’t much good to anyone else if you’re unhealthy, a financial burden, or an emotional basket case. Fix yourself before you turn outward. It’s best for everyone.

Scott Raymond Adams (1957 -)

A Quote by John Douillard on body, health, and fitness

No citizen has any right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training; it is part of his profession as a citizen to keep himself in good condition… [It is] a disgrace for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and the strength of which his body is capable.

Quoted from Xenophon, Greek historian
