Famous quotes containing the word exercise:

    A state that denies its citizens their basic rights becomes a danger to its neighbors as well: internal arbitrary rule will be reflected in arbitrary external relations. The suppression of public opinion, the abolition of public competition for power and its public exercise opens the way for the state power to arm itself in any way it sees fit.... A state that does not hesitate to lie to its own people will not hesitate to lie to other states.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    The belief of our Reason is an Exercise of Faith, and Faith is an Act of Reason.
    Joseph Glanvill (1636–1680)

    What exercise is to the body, employment is to the mind and morals.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
