    1. Hi Kevin,
      thanks for sharing with us.

      Sadly, no, I don’t have the source for these quotes.

      However, I can assure you that I focus on quality quotes.
      Also, I don’t hesitate to mark quotes as “fake” when I noticed them. (Like the Buddha page or Emerson page for example).

      When I started Wisdom Quotes, I sourced all quotes.
      But I also shoot myself in the foot by doing this.

      Thanks for your understanding,
      Maxime

  1. A life without health is like a river without water. I came to realize, will not happen by accident. It must be a daily practice. The secret of good health lies in successful adjustment to changing stresses on the body.

  2. Health is wealth. Without health, a man can not live a proper life. That’s why being healthy is important. Your quotation is awesome and good to read. I like your work.
