• A healthy state can exist only when the men and women who make it up lead clean, vigorous, healthy lives; when the children are so trained that they shall endeavor, not to shirk difficulties, but to overcome them; not to seek ease, but to know how to wrest triumph from toil and risk.

    Theodore Roosevelt (2012). “The Strenuous Life: Essays and Addresses”, p.2, Courier Corporation
