Famous quotes containing the word exercise:
“Not the less does nature continue to fill the heart of youth with suggestions of his enthusiasm, and there are now men,if indeed I can speak in the plural number,more exactly, I will say, I have just been conversing with one man, to whom no weight of adverse experience will make it for a moment appear impossible, that thousands of human beings might exercise towards each other the grandest and simplest of sentiments, as well as a knot of friends, or a pair of lovers.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“To read well, that is, to read true books in a true spirit, is a noble exercise, and one that will task the reader more than any exercise which the customs of the day esteem. It requires a training such as the athletes underwent, the steady intention almost of the whole life to this object.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“I cant stand to sing the same song the same way two nights in succession, let alone two years or ten years. If you can, then it aint music, its close-order drill or exercise or yodeling or something, not music.”
—Billie Holiday (19151959)
