Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike and rejoice at what brings you nothing but misfortune. Our nervous system isn't just a fiction; it's part of our physical body, and our soul exists in space, and is inside us, like teeth in our mouth. It can't be forever violated with impunity.

Doctor Zhivago
In health there is liberty. Health is the first of all liberties, and happiness gives us the energy which is the basis of health
If you can be well without health, you may be happy without virtue
Tis healthy to be sick sometimes
Attention to health is life greatest hindrance
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver
Good health and good sense are two of life's greatest blessings
Cheerfulness is the best promoter of health and is as friendly to the mind as to the body
Use your health, even to the point of wearing it out. That is what it is for. Spend all you have before you die; do not outlive yourself
Preserving the health by too strict a regimen is a worrisome malady

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
