“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.”

“A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints”

    yep, like I always, say, hungry? nah, I ate yesterday and I will eat again tomorrow.

    At my old university, the president once said: if you feel the urge to exercise, just lie down, it will pass.

    Actually the quote was just sit down, see it here and search under Hutchins. The same school tore down a 70,000 seat stadium to build a 4,5 million volume library.
    When I was there, out of 300 American Party Schools, we were ranked #298, behind all 3 military academies and 2 christian fundamentalists schools, plus the Mormon School Brigham Young. We only beat out Rochester Institute of Technology (300+ days of grey) and an all girls school. Go figure....
