Scoliosis-Curved Spine – Strength Magazine – January, 1926

The aphorism, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he,” not only embraces the whole of a man’s being, but it is so comprehensive that it reaches out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts. To illustrate-a mining engineer out in Colorado suddenly developed a strange illness which kept him from directing operations on a huge project that he was in charge of. After many months in bed, he was finally allowed up in a wheeling chair. His beautiful wife stayed constantly by his side, comforting him and nursing him tenderly. His mind became so affected that periodically he would get insanely mad, and often this was followed by a state of worry. Yet, she stayed by his side in spite of it all, but little did he seem to appreciate her untiring efforts.
