Re: My log
"The duration of an athletic contest is relatively short, while the
training for it may take many weeks of arduous work and continuous
exercise of self-effort. The real value of sport is not the actual
game played in the limelight of applause but the hours of dogged
determination and self-discipline carried out alone, imposed and
supervised by an exacting conscience. The applause soon dies away, the
prize is left behind, but the character you build is yours forever."
