I stumbled upon a gaggle of “Healthy Living Quotes” that I found interesting. Not just because they were profound or struck a personal cord, but rather because the majority of them were said hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years ago, which gives pause for thought.
We have been ‘trying’ to eat healthfully, exercise and be happy for how many years? When will we learn? Will we ever get it ‘right?’
Here follow 10 Timeless Healthy Living Quotes … From Buddha (500 BC) to Persius (50 AD).
