On Education and Physical Activity

Doing some research for a piece on fitness and brain health. Came across this quote in the book Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain:

In order for man to succeed in life, God provided him with two means, education and physical activity. Not separately, one for the soul and the other for the body, but for the two together. With these two means, man can attain perfection.
