3 John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
On one occasion an eminent literary man and a member of the House of Lords were talking with the Duke of Albany when the conversation turned on what gave the best chance of happy life. The literary man said that persons in a middle position who were without ambitions they could not satisfy were in the happiest state. The conversation went on, and one of the speakers said to the Duke that his own position must be a happy one. "You forget," he said, "I am worst off of all. I want the chief thing. It is health — health — health."
