Stole this 1-
From a letter to his nephew.


"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body, and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."

What about hockey? ;) My son was a pretty serious hockey player up until recently. Now he wants to be a Marine.

So... Hockey was too violent for him then? :ROFLMAO:
After 5 concussions, a broken fibula, and a strained knee ligament, he decided it was time. He played at a high level, but the reality was that he wasn't going to Div 1 NCAA or the NHL.

But, yeah... he's going to step it down a notch with the Marines! LOL!
