In 1910, Teddy Roosevelt gave a speech in Paris called Citizenship in a Republic. Here at the end of this calendar year, I am quoting some it for you, because in looking forward to the coming year may it bring you energy to attain your goals despite any setbacks.
It’s about the man (or woman) in the arena. I find it speaks loudly to me to embolden myself and think bigger, and work harder to help as many people as I can. The other day I was thinking about the famous philosopher Descartes who said “I think, therefore I am.” I believe he got it wrong. It should be “I am, therefore, I help.”
Here now is The Man in The Arena…
“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Happy New Year

“I am using the HOCATT because I know that toxins have entered my body from the air, food and chemicals, and it is my belief that the real cause of disease stems from these toxins.
I want to treat causes, not symptoms. So by removing the toxins from my body and strengthening my immune system which the HOCATT successfully does, this is my most effective and rapid route to a healthy body.” – M.F.
