Wise words from Prince Charles June 11, 2009

I read this quote in a book: Spent, by Frank Lipman. Definitely the best words from Prince Charles that I’ve come across!

The state of our health reflects the food we eat, the exercise we take, the water we drink, the air we breathe and the quality of our housing and sanitation. I believe it also extends to our social needs and circumstances — the need to belong to a community, the need for meaningful work and daily purpose.  The need in our lives for dignity and kindness, for self-respect, for hope and, above all, for harmony and, dare I say it, beauty. It encompasses the power of art, the healing properties of loving human relationships and the role of the human spirit. Human health is the sum of all these parts.
