"It is far easier and safer to prevent illness by the observance of the laws of health than to set about curing the illness which has been brought on by our own ignorance and carelessness."
"Illness is the result not only of our actions but also of our thoughts."
"It is a fatal delusion that no disease can be cured without medicine."
"The relation between the body and the mind is so intimate that, if either of them got out of order, the whole system would suffer. hence it follows that a pure character is the foundation of health in the real sense of the term; and … . all evil thoughts and evil passions are but different forms of disease."
"Our passion for exercise should become so strong that we could not bring ourselves to dispense with it on any account. We hardly realize how weak and futile is our mental work when unaccompanied by hard physical exercise."
