Do ye know thought that came to me on the way up?
You're a big fella sure enough, but maybe almighty providence would've made you just as big if you'd never done any exercises at all.
That's no very likely.
No, but it's a comical thought.
I wouldnee say comical. The exercises was a big expense.

I was born in 1954 and saw this movie when I was very small. This stuck with me forever. At first it motivated me to exercise. I attacked it with zeal. I am not going to self boast by going through what my accomplishments were, but they were significant. I applied this same zeal in my business life. Again, I am not going to boast, but this movie gave me the inspiration to keep on keeping on, even if you are not the biggest and best. My company is very successful and there is no stopping.
I would recommend that any parent show this movie to any child. It is timeless and trans gender. Simply my favorite movie.
