I've always liked good quotes and stories. Since changing my life towards an 'paleo-way-of-living', I read and observe with a different kind of mindset.
Does anybody has any other quotes or stories from non paleo sources (by which I mean, not from Cordain, Mark Sisson, Art De Vany, Kurt Harris..., not because they are not great, they are). I'm also not looking for personal succes stories (although they are great too)
I will lead by example:
Legend was that this ancient strong-man [Milo of Croton, the ancient Greek wrestler] had won at least six Olympic championships and that he trained over the four years leading up to the games by picking up and carrying a calf. As the animal matured, Milo was tasked with carrying a heavier and heavier load. Milo’s progressive weight-training program would culminate with him carrying the full grown bull into the Olympic stadium, carrying it the full length of the field where he would then kill, butcher, roast and eat his training medium.
