Healthy mind healthy body

You should pray for a healthy mind in a healthy body.


Ask for a stout heart that has no fear of death,


and deems length of days the least of Nature’s gifts


that can endure any kind of toil,


that knows neither wrath nor desire and thinks


the woes and hard labors of Hercules better than


the loves and banquets and downy cushions of Sardanapalus.


What I commend to you, you can give to yourself;


For assuredly, the only road to a life of peace is virtue.


Roman poet Juvenal, satire X, 55AD.
