Consider the following RxExercise-motivating observations from human history about the connection of Life-Liberty-Happiness and Physical Fitness:IMG_5827

“Nations have passed away and left no traces. And history gives the naked cause of it; one single, simple reason in all case: They fell because their people were not fit.” – Rudyard Kipling

“…of the twenty-one great civilizations, nineteen of them failed because of physical and moral decay from within.” – Arnold Toynbee

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” – Leo Tolstoy

“I have an irrepressible desire to live till I can be assured that the world is a little better for my having lived in it.” [and] “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other thing.” – Abraham Lincoln

“That which is used develops, and that which is not used wastes away… If there is any deficiency in food or exercise, the body will fall sick.” – Hippocrates
