Famous quotes containing the words mental, health, review and/or tribunal:

    Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark. The pleasure they give is steady, unorgastic, reliable, deep and long-lasting. In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    It is always singular, but encouraging, to meet with common sense in very old books, as the Heetopades of Veeshnoo Sarma; a playful wisdom which has eyes behind as well as before, and oversees itself. It asserts their health and independence of the experience of later times. This pledge of sanity cannot be spared in a book, that it sometimes pleasantly reflect upon itself.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Twice and thrice over, as they say, good is it to repeat and review what is good.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    There’s a new tribunal now
    Higher than God’s—the educated man’s!
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
