"Now for the body, as well it leuils at it: for those who distemper and misdiet them selues with vntimely and vnwonted surfeting, who make their bodies the noysome sepulchers of their soules, not considering the estate of their enfeebled body what will be accordant to it, not waighing their complexion contrary perchance farre to the dish they feede vpon, not foreseing by true knoweledge of themselues what will endamage and impaire their healths, infect the conduit pipes of their limpid spirits, what will dull and stupefie their quicker intelligence, nay, disable all the faculties both of soule and body."
— Walkington, Thomas (b. c. 1575, d. 1621)
