A strong body makes the mind strong As to the species of exercises I advise the gun While this gives moderate exercise to the body it gives boldness ... Thomas Jefferson quotes

A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.
Thomas Jefferson

Other quotes by Thomas Jefferson

Happiness is not being pained in body or troubled in mind.

An enemy generally says and believes what he wishes.

I find that he is happiest of whom the world says least, good or bad.

As our enemies have found we can reason like men, so now let us show them we can fight like men also.

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.
