Exercise ferments the humors, casts them into their proper channels, throws off redundancies, and helps nature in those secret distributions, without which the body cannot subsist in its vigor, nor the soul act with cheerfulness.
- Joseph Addison, The Spectator, July 12, 1711
I will persist until I succeed. The prizes of life are at
the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and
it is not given to me to know how many steps are
necessary in order to reach my goal…Always will I
take another step. If that is of no avail I will take
another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time
is not too difficult…So long as there is breath in me,
that long will I persist. For now I know one of the
greatest principles of success; if I persist long
enough I will win."
