“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” Socrates

Touche. After reading into it more the quote itself has to do with men being fit to benefit their society. Which makes me like it more. War being the main reason to be and stay fit. Amateur in this context pertains to the summary below. You must train for a purpose, to be useful, not just for the sake of training. I have no doubts that a more appropriate word could have been used.

For me it’s one main thing that leads to two other sub goals. One, to help others get strong by setting the example and gaining the wisdom and knowledge to instruct them (that could be virtually or in person and I prefer in person), no matter their age or starting point. The personal benefits that branch off of that is to see what I am capable of and to age well.

Healthy is self evident and people naturally gravitate towards it, when around it, knowing it is right.

Aging well - a beautiful concept. How many grandparents would make a positive impression on youth if only they followed this ideal.

Right as the world goes is only in question between equals in power. While the strong do what they can, the weak suffer what they must.
But simplicity is not so simple to attain. Steve Jobs figured out that “you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.” The Arabs have an expression for trenchant prose: no skill to understand it, mastery to write it.
