Dark Light

Encyclopedia of Thomas Jefferson, 318 (Foley, Ed., reissued 1967)

“A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercise, I

advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives

boldness, enterprise, and independence 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 walk.”
