QotD: Hartley on the Vice of Negligence towards Necessities of one's physical Body

Красиво умели выражаться в 1860м году. From Hartley's "Chapter VIII: Manly Exercises".

Wherever there is physical depression, there is disposition to resort to injurious stimulants; and the time of relief from work is generally spent, not in invigorating the animal frame, but in aggravating complaints, and converting functional into organic disease.
