'The following is my diagnosis of real strength:

Genuine strength should include not only momentary
strength, but also the far more valuable kind of
strength known as strength of endurance.

This means the ability, if you are a cyclist, to
jump on your machine and ride 100 miles at any time
without undue fatigue; if a wrestler, to wrestle a
hard bout for half an hour with a good man without
a rest, yet without becoming exhausted and reaching
the limit of your strength.

Apart from sports, enduring strength means that
the business man shall stand without a break-down,
business cares and worries, that he shall be capable
when necessary, of working morning, afternoon and
night with unflagging energy, holding tightly in his
grasp the reins of business, retaining all the while
a clear mind and untiring energy, both of body and
brain.

The man who can miss a nights rest or miss a meal
without showing any ill effects or without losing
any physical power, is better entitled to be
considered a strong man that the man who is only
apparently strong, being possessed of momentary
strength which is, after all, a muscle test pure
and simple.'
