Body and soul

Artist: Gustave Caillebotte

I did not know he said this. And, of course, it is the last point that we all too easily overlook, I think:

Good for the body is the work of the body,
good for the soul is the work of the soul, and
good for either is the work of the other.

-- Henry David Thoreau


  1. What a beautiful photo! I just came across your blog and absolutely love the pair of visual art and inspiring quotation. I'm going to have to make a habit of stopping by.

  2. It so good to have you visit, Jim, and I really appreciate the fact that you like the approach of this blog.

    Please do come again!

  3. It follows that what's not good for the body is also not good for the soul, and vice versa.
