A guy complains of a headache. Another guy says, "Do what I do. I put my head on my wife's

The body is the servant of the mind. It obeys the operations of the mind, whether they be
deliberately chosen or automatically expressed. At the bidding of unlawful thoughts the body

"Keep thy heart (or imagination) with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life." (Prov.
4:23.) This means that what man images, sooner or later externalizes in his affairs. I know of
a man who feared a certain disease. It was a very rare disease and difficult to get, but he
pictured it continually and read about it until it manifested in his body, and he died, the
victim of distorted imagination.
Florence Scovel Shinn

A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools.
Spanish proverb

Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they
have been depleted.

Pain is inevitable as long as you are identified with your mind, which is to say as long as you
are unconscious, spiritually speaking. I am talking here primarily of emotional pain, which is
also the main cause of physical pain and physical disease. Resentment, hatred, self-pity,
guilt, anger, depression, jealousy, and so on, even the slightest irritation, are all forms of
pain.
Eckhart Tolle

An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind.
Kahlil Gibran
