“An active mind cannot exist in an inactive body”

"An active mind cannot exist in an inactive body” is a quotation that is usually attributed to U.S. General George S. Patton (1885-1945). It is not known with any certainty that Patton ever said it. THe attribution comes from a book, Patton’s Principles: A Handbook for Managers Who Mean It! (1979) by Porter B. Williamson.

The quotation has become popular and has been included in many collections of fitness and motivational quotations.


Wikipedia: George S. Patton
George Smith Patton, Jr. (November 11, 1885 – December 21, 1945) was a United States Army general, best known for his command of the Seventh United States Army, and later the Third United States Army, in the European Theater of World War II.

I came across this quote early this week. It gave my thoughts perfect meaning. As I go through my journey in life, I begin to see the importance of balance. Balance of the body and the mind. If we only focus on the body, we will lose track of the reason we were focused on it in the first place. If we only put effort into making our mind stronger, our body will lose track of itself.
