ABSTRACT
This section presents quotations from famous personalities on the importance of taking care of one's health. B. C. Forbes, founder of this magazine said that "You alone can regulate your habits and make or unmake your health." Herbert Spencer said that "The preservation of health is a duty. Few seem conscious that there is such as thing as physical morality. Edward Stanley said that "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease."
