How to Mold a Mighty Arm

(Original Version, Restored)

Authored by George F Jowett

"EVERY day as I grow older I believe more than ever that the impressions created in our youth form an indelible mark upon our minds. Throughout the years dating from my boyhood into manhood, I have always looked upon the arm as the indicator of a man's physical strength and ability. While I know it is only one of the many parts that go to make up a perfect body, on the other hand what use is a strong body without a pair of equally powerful arms? Just as much use as a derrick with a weak hoist. It is no use talking. I am just as much impressed today with a strongly built arm as ever I was in my imaginative youth. It is the first thing that catches the eye. I can recall quite vividly the old smithy shop where I used to watch the blacksmith pound iron on the anvil. He looked for all the world like the subject used to illustrate Longfellow's The Village Blacksmith."- George F. Jowett
