From "The Owners Manual for the Brain," by Pierce Howard (Bard, 2006):
"Research is catching up with folk wisdom. From Homer ("Too much rest itself becomes a pain") to Shakespeare ("The labor we delight in physics pain") to Alexander Pope, the contributions of physical activity to mental performance have been touted. But not until recently have research findings supported these claims. "Strength of mind is exercise not rest." -- Alexander Pope."

You're joking, right, 18.1 percent
Totally innovative, 36.3 percent
Every once in awhile, 45.4 percent
