The Mat – Strength Magazine – January, 1926

“Give me health and a day,” said Emerson, “and I will make the pomp of emperors ridiculous.” Without health we can do nothing, all our ambitions are mere shadows. It is the most precious possession in life, yet the majority of people seem to pay the least attention to its cultivation, until, some day, something gives way, then the price begins to be paid. Personally I have little sympathy for the individual who falls by the wayside from physical neglect. If it was not for the fact that others must suffer along with the person, I would say he got all that was coming to him.
