Found this in my reading yesterday:
Sirach 30:14-17 (NRSV)
14 Better off poor, healthy and fit than rich and afflicted in body.
15 Health and fitness are better than any gold, and a robust body than countless riches.
16 There is no wealth better than health of body, and no gladness above joy of heart.
17 Death is better than a life of misery, and eternal sleep than chronic sickness.
