An old man was asked, "At your ripe age, what would you prefer to get - Parkinson´s or Alzheimer's ?"
The wise one answered, "Definitely Parkinsons. Better to spill half an ounce of Scotch than to forget where you keep the bottle!"
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785
