Time and health are two precious assets
that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.
-Denis Waitley

He who has health, has hope.
And he, who has hope, has everything.
-Arabian Proverb

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being,
and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
