Exercise

We are under exercised as a nation. We look instead of play. We ride instead of walk. Our existence deprives us of the minimum of physical activity essential for healthy living.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA

I have never taken any exercise except sleeping and resting.

Mark Twain (1835-1910) U.S. humorist, writer, and lecturer.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

Fred A. Allen (1894-1956) American comedian.

Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.

Exercise is bunk. If you are healthy you don't need it. If you are sick you shouldn't take it.

Henry Ford (1863-1947) American industrialist.

Publicidad

Intellectual tasting of life will not supersede muscular activity.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.

Exercise: you don't have time not to.

Other exercises develop single powers and muscles, but dancing embellishes, exercises, and equalizes all the muscles at once.

Exercise is labor without weariness.

Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) British author.
