“The Greatest Wealth is Health”

Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) 30:14 – Better is the poor, being sound and strong of constitution, than a rich man that is afflicted in his body. 15 Health and good estate of body are above all gold, and a strong body above infinite wealth.

A sound mind in a sound body is a short, but full description of a happy state in this world: he that has these two, has little more to wish for; and he that wants either of them, will be little the better for anything else. – John Locke

When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.- Herophilus

Money doesn’t mean anything to me. I’ve made a lot of money, but I want to enjoy life and not stress myself building my bank account. I give lots away and live simply, mostly out of a suitcase in hotels. We all know that good health is much more important. – Keanu Reeves

Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) 30:16 – There is no riches above a sound body and no joy above the joy of the heart. Death is better than a bitter life or continual sickness.

From the bitterness of disease, man learns the sweetness of health. – Catalan proverb

Look to your health; and if you have it, praise God, and value it next to a good conscience; for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of; a blessing that money cannot buy.- Izaak Walton
