Cancel That Gym Subscription

The healthy mind goes everywhere, one day visiting Saint Francis, another accepting teas from Céline’s bitter pot – ask for two sugars, please – and hiking many a hard mile through Immanuel Kant or the poetry of Paul Celan – a pair who will provide a better workout than the local gym – before taking a hard-earned vacation in the warm and luscious fictions of Colette. You will live longer and better by consuming deliciously chewy fats and reading Proust than by treadmilling to a Walkman tune and claiming to be educated because you peruse the Wall Street Journal and have recently skimmed something by Tom Wolfe.
