    If you would get exercise, go in search of the springs of life.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Out of the slimy mud of words, out of the sleet and hail of verbal imprecisions,
    Approximate thoughts and feelings, words that have taken the place of thoughts and feelings,
    There springs the perfect order of speech, and the beauty of incantation.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
