Earle E. Liederman Quote

“A man can become stronger no matter how much nature has handicapped him by giving him a lack of inches, or a small frame. Even those in ill health can be made strong, because exercise promotes health. In turn, muscle can be made to grow on the healthy body and with muscle will come the strength.” – Earle E. Liederman, Secrets of Strength (1925)

The so-called dominant classes, Stempel writes—especially those like my friends and myself, richer in fancy degrees than in actual dollars—tend to express dominance through strenuous aerobic sports that display moral character, self-control, and self-development, rather than physical dominance. By chasing pure strength, in other words, packing on all that muscle, I had violated the unspoken prejudices—and dearly held self-definitions—of my social group.
