The lungs are the weight-regulating system of the body. — James Nestor

You might think that as people get older, they spend money more freely out of the sheer desire to make the most of it before it’s truly too late. But the opposite tends to happen. In general, spending among American households declines as people age. For example, the Consumer Expenditure Survey, conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, found that in 2017, average annual spending for households headed by 55-to-64-year-olds was $65,000. Average spending fell to $55,000 for those between 65 and 74; and spending fell again to $42,000 for those 75 and older. This overall decline occurred despite a rise in healthcare expenses, because most other expenses, such as clothing and entertainment, were much lower. The decline in spending over time was even more acute for retirees with more than $1 million in assets, according to separate research conducted by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, which analyzed data from more than half a million of its customers. — Bill Perkins

Caffeine has an average half-life of five to seven hours. Let’s say that you have a cup of coffee after your evening dinner, around 7:30 p.m. This means that by 1:30 a.m., 50 percent of that caffeine may still be active and circulating throughout your brain tissue. In other words, by 1:30 a.m., you’re only halfway to completing the job of cleansing your brain of the caffeine you drank after dinner. — Matthew Walker

It is dangerously destabilizing to have half the world on the cutting edge of technology while the other half struggles on the bare edge of survival. — William J. Clinton

I cured myself of shyness when it finally occurred to me that people didn't think about me half as much as I gave them credit for. The truth was, nobody gave a damn. Like most teenagers, I was far too self-centered. When I stopped being prisoner to what I worried was others’ opinions of me, I became more confident and free. — Lucille Ball

Every passion gives a particular cast to the countenance, and is apt to discover itself in some feature or other. I have seen an eye curse for half an hour together, and an eyebrow call a man a scoundrel. — Joseph Addison

The defeat of Japan in 1945 left Korea divided. North was a Communist regime overseen first by the Soviets and later by Communist China; south was a pro-American dictatorship. This was the very beginning of the Cold War era, when every inch of land was contested, with each side looking to establish influence or control around the world, unwilling to let the other maintain a sole presence. The choice of the 38th parallel as the line of division was unfortunate in many ways and arbitrary. Washington was so focused on the Japanese surrender that it had no real strategy for Korea. Two junior officers chose the 38th parallel as a place to suggest to the Soviets on the grounds that it was halfway down the country. No Koreans were present, nor any Korea experts. If they had been, they could have shared that that line was the same one that the Russians and Japanese had discussed for spheres of influence half a century earlier, following the Russo-Japanese War of 1904–5. Moscow, not knowing the Americans were making up policy on the fly, could be forgiven for thinking this was the U.S.’s de facto recognition of that suggestion and therefore acceptance of division and a Communist north. The nation was divided and the die was cast. — Tim Marshall

The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world not destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside ... Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them ... the weak will become prey to the strong. — Thomas Paine

When there is not enough to eat, people starve to death. It is better to let half of the people die so that the other half can eat their fill. — Mao Zedong
