Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victims he intends to eat until he eats them. – Samuel Butler, Note-Books, 1912
One farmer says to me, “You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make the bones with;” and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying himself with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle. – Henry David Thoreau
Sickness is poor-spirited, and cannot serve anyone; it must husband its resources to live. But health or fullness answers its own ends, and has to spare, runs over, and inundates the neighborhoods and creeks of other men’s necessities. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d druther not. – Mark Twain
There is a necessity for a regulating discipline of exercise that, whilst evoking the human energies, will not suffer them to be wasted. – Thomas de Quincey
Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. – Plato
The autonomic nervous system is divided into the sympathetic system, which is often identified with the fight-or-flight response, and the parasympathetic, which is identified with what’s been called the relaxation response. When you do yoga – the deep breathing, the stretching, the movements that release muscle tension, the relaxed focus on being present in your body – you initiate a process that turns the fight-or-flight system off and the relaxation response on. That has a dramatic effect on the body. The heartbeat slows, respiration decreases, blood pressure decreases. The body seizes this chance to turn on the healing mechanisms. – Richard Faulds
