strength and such things I replied, "Sure."
"O.k. Let me ask you something first. You see that

"Think ya' could pick that calf up?"
"Sure, " I replied... "... easy."
"O.k.", the old timer said... "You just go over there and pick that
little thing up. Now tomorrow you come out here and you pick that calf up
again.... and you keep doing that every day for a year... and, by the end
of the year you'll be the strongest man in the world."
