Exercise

Famous quotes containing the word exercise:

    The Good of man is the active exercise of his soul’s faculties in conformity with excellence or virtue.... Moreover this activity must occupy a complete lifetime; for one swallow does not make spring, nor does one fine day; and similarly one day or a brief period of happiness does not make a man supremely blessed and happy.
    Aristotle (384–322 B.C.)

    The most fruitful and natural exercise of our mind, in my opinion, is discussion. I find it sweeter than any other action of our life.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
