Mens Sana in Corpore Sana

You should pray for a healthy mind
in a healthy body.
Ask for a stout heart that has no fear of death,
and deems the length of days
the least of Nature’s gifts,
that can endure any kind of toil
that knows neither wrath nor desire
and thinks the woes and hard labors of Hercules
better than the loves and banquets and downy cushions of Sardanapalus.
What I commend to you, you can give to yourself;
For assuredly, the only road to a life of peace is virtue.”
                                                                       – Juvenal, Roman poet, circa 60 AD
