Is There a Reason for Nerves? – Strength Magazine – March, 1925

There are as many causes for “nerves” as there are things that happen to the human body. Any one of these, if harped upon long enough, may be sufficient to fray the cord and spoil the physical harmony that exists between sound nerves and healthy bodies. An unseasonable haircut may bring about an attack of neuralgia that will leave the entire nervous system shaken and unstable for weeks. An outstanding and obstreperous bunion, trying the patience and endurance of old Prudence Patience herself, will ravel and tangle more nerve fibrils than Horatio ever dreamed of.
