I love quotes. A short quote can be full of meaning and resonate with us. One of my favorite health and welless quotes is "The greatest wealth is health." - Virgil. Here are some others that I like:

"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity." -John F. Kennedy

"To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear." -Buddha

"To me, good health is more than just exercise and diet. It’s really a point of view and a mental attitude you have about yourself." -Albert Schweitzer

"Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far." -Thomas Jefferson

"The patient should be made to understand that he or she must take charge of his own life. Don’t take your body to the doctor as if he were a repair shop." -Quentin Regestein

"In order to change we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired."  -Author Unknown

"Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning." –Thomas Jefferson

"If I'd known I was going to live so long, I'd have taken better care of myself." -Leon Eldred

"If you have health, you probably will be happy, and if you have health and happiness, you have all the wealth you need, even if it is not all you want." -Elbert Hubbard



"A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book."-Irish Proverb



"Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open."  -B.K.S. Iyengar

"Health is not valued until sickness comes." -Thomas Fuller

"It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver." –Mahatma Gandi

"The part can never be well unless the whole is well."  -Plato

And one more, but a funny one: "Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon." -Doug Larson
