Warning Quotations

One thorn of experience is worth a whole wilderness of warning.

Instead we must be positive - positive about the fun and benefits to be had from healthy living, trying to get rid of people's excuses for being obese by tackling the issue in a positive way.
Andrew Lansley

History is a vast early warning system.
