The Athletic Basis of a Successful Life – Strength Magazine – February, 1924

When Ulysses S. Grant was a lad on the farm, he was sent to the woods with a team to haul logs that some woodsmen were to load on the wagon for him. The woodsmen failed to appear, and young Grant loaded the logs himself. He had been sent to get the logs and he did not mean to return without them, even though he had to perform the well-nigh impossible task of getting them on his wagon without assistance.
