The influence of Scandinavian and Japanese culture has changed attitudes toward bathrooms. In these cultures, the bathroom is regarded as a natural part of everyday life in which mental and spiritual well-being are as important as hygiene. This has given rise to the widely held view that the bathroom is a place not only to wash oneself but also to relax and enjoy a sense of well being.
-excerpt from Ultimate Bathroom Design
Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.
- St. Thomas of Aquinas
There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them.
Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak.
- Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati
Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.
He enjoys true leisure who has time to improve his soul's estate.
-Henry David Thoreau
That pleasure which is at once the most pure, the most elevating and the most intense, is derived, I maintain, from the contemplation of the beautiful.
-Edgar Allen Poe
The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.
