I found this several places on the Internet:

When health is absent wisdom cannot reveal itself,
Art cannot become manifest,
Strength cannot be exerted,
Wealth is useless and reason is powerless.
-- Herophilies, 300 B.C.

There is also this slightly different version...

"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself,
art cannot become manifest, strength cannot fight,
wealth becomes useless, and
intelligence cannot be applied."
~ Herophilus of Chalcedon, 335 - 280 BC,
Physician to Alexander the Great ~
