Her favorite quotes:

Remember that bodily exercise, when it is well ordered, as I have said, is also prayer by means of which you can please God our Lord. ~ Saint Ignatius of Loyola

Take care of your body as if you were going to live forever, and take care of your soul as if you were going to die tomorrow. ~ Saint Augustine
