“The more you drive, the fitter you get,”
“When I’m at home in the off season, I probably ride about eight hours a week on the bike. I will do Pilates twice a week. I will do the gym a couple times. I will do a little swimming. You do a little bit of everything.”
*Your choice today – bicycle, Pilates, gym, swimming, or a combination.
Van Jones 1968
“All humans have fear, and those of us who are fortunate have faith.”
*What is your biggest fear? Have faith that everything is going to be ok.

Upton Sinclair 1878 – Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich
“The Jungle” exposes the appalling and unsanitary conditions in the Chicago meat-packing industry. It was influential in obtaining passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act.
“I aimed at the public’s heart, and by accident hit it in the stomach.”
*I would suggest reading The Jungle while eating, but you’ll need both hands and a bib for this Chicago Italian beef sandwich. Wait until after you eat before reading Upton Sinclair’s masterpiece of muckraking.
