Just because you're not sick doesn't mean you're healthy.  ~Author Unknown

Know, then, whatever cheerful and serene
Supports the mind supports the body too.

Illness as Metaphor, 1977

Doctors are always working to preserve our health and cooks to destroy it, but the latter are the more often successful.  ~Denis Diderot

A bodily disease, which we look upon as whole and entire within itself, may, after all, be but a symptom of some ailment in the spiritual part.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne,

Health is a relationship between you and your body.  ~Terri Guillemets

It's no longer a question of staying healthy.  It's a question of finding a sickness you like.  ~Jackie Mason

Hello, Welcome Here!

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
Mark Twain

All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure.

Mark Twain

When your friends begin to flatter you on how young you look, it's a sure sign you're getting old.

Mark Twain

Sure I am of this, that you have only to endure to conquer.

Winston Churchill

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.

Abraham Lincoln

It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.

Mohandas Gandhi

He that waits upon fortune, is never sure of a dinner.

Benjamin Franklin

Since thou are not sure of a minute, throw not away an hour.

Benjamin Franklin

Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.

Ronald Reagan

If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.

Muhammad Ali

Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you've got to let it grow.

John Lennon

The more I see the less I know for sure.

John Lennon

If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is nature's way.


In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds.
