Dedicated to all the late-risers

Definition of DAWN: The time when men of reason go to bed. Certain old men prefer to rise about that time, taking a cold bath and a long walk with an empty stomach, and otherwise mortifying the flesh.
They then point with pride to these practices as the cause of their sturdy health and ripe years; the truth being that they are healthy and old, not because of their habits, but in spite of them.
The reason we find only robust persons doing this thing is that it has killed all others who have tried it.
