Sitting Still Makes You Ill

Above all, do not lose your desire to walk:

every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness;

I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it…

but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill….

Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right.

~ Soren Kierkegaard (1813 -1855) Danish philosopher, poet, theologian, psychologist, religious author, literary and social critic
