On the merits of exercise
Wednesday, January 18, 2012
A strong body makes the mind strong.
Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very fast.
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.
Exercise is bunk. If you are healthy, you don't need it: if you are sick you should not take it.
Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.
Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.
