Editorial: Getting Back to the Strenuous Life – Strength Magazine – July, 1924

What has become of that once popular “strenuous life” of which the late Theodore Roosevelt was not only the exponent but the very living embodiment? Our people today are so busy living the jazzy life, the hoochy life, the gluttonous life, the grafting life, the gasoline life, the auto-smashing life, the flapping life. the bandit life, the narcotic life and the altogether extravagant life, that we have almost forgotten the very phrase that expressed the spirit of .one of the most active and dynamic of all our Presidents.
