“Live long and prosper”   – Leonard Nimoy.

Some reports suggest that a young Leonard picked up this aphorism from a rabbi.

P.T. Barnum was right (part 1)

We trace “health” to a Germanic , then old English word for “WHOLE”.

The great 19th century entertainer (and Connecticut Yankee) Phineas Taylor Barnum was thinking WHOLE when he commented:

“The foundation of success in life is good health: that is the substratum fortune; it is also the basis of happiness. A person cannot accumulate a fortune very well when he is sick.”

Here’s to best possible health (which the World Health Organization broadly defined in 1948 as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

If you’re creative, you can tap Doctor Google’s listed synonyms for “health” –

well-being, healthiness, fitness, good condition, good shape, fine fettle

Here’s to wholesomeness.
